Ground Turkey with Brown Rice & Sautéed Mushrooms and Roasted Asparagus, Zucchini & Green Beans – Day 29

This was one of my less extravagant recipes – … due to the fact that I got home from teaching my Zumba class at about 8:30-8:45 and still had to cook and eat – and I wanted to eat quickly :).  It was delicious, none the less.  Hope you enjoy!
