Quick & Easy Sweet Potato Turkey Skillet

The color orange just screams fall. Pumpkin, squash and sweet potato seem to be everywhere- And I love it. 

This dish is no exception. It’s so warm and comforting you’ll want to follow dinner with a cup of hot apple cider or cocoa under a giant blanket to keep it going. Doesn’t get much more fall than that. 2

The lean protein and complex carbs will keep you full through the evening. It’s also packed with loads of vitamin A from the sweet potatoes which will help with immunity, vision, skin/bone health, and regulate cell growth and division. 

The dinner took less than 30 minutes to prepare- which is always something I aim for- not a dinner that takes all evening to make. Ain’t no body got time for that.
