Turkey vegetable pilafs work well for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Look for fresh or frozen organic ground dark meat turkey in the meat section of your local health food store. Ground chicken or lamb work well here too. I also love adding a handful of chopped fresh basil leaves to each serving if I have them on hand. Serve pilaf alongside a large romaine lettuce salad for a balanced meal.
