Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage and Veggie Pita Mixture

I've been making this dish for a long time, and it has always been a favorite of mine. It's delicious and easy and filling and FULL of taste with no added salt or spices.  It's full of colorful veggies, and the Italian turkey sausage is full of protein.  






Ingredients:
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 orange bell pepper, chopped
5 white button mushrooms, chopped
6 green onions, chopped
3 cups of kale, chopped
6 Sweet Italian turkey sausage links, cut open and crumbled in the pan
2 Tbsp grape seed oil
Whole wheat pitas, cut in half

Directions:
In a large frying pan, heat grape seed oil. Crumble the turkey sausage into the pan and fry it like you would hamburger for tacos. Remove from heat and transfer into a medium bowl until later.

In the same pan, sautee the veggies for about 5 minutes until cooked and the kale is wilted.  Add the
turkey crumbles back into the mixture, stir over heat for a couple of minutes until heated through and well-mixed.

Divide into fourths.  Fill each pita half with the mixture and enjoy!
