Turkey Sausage Stir-Fry

(Family Features) - The New Year is a great time for choosing lighter meal options, but that doesn't have to mean sacrificing great flavor. Protein is a great way to feel fuller, longer, which means you're less likely to fill up on unhealthy foods. To keep your meals interesting, look for lean ways to jazz them up:

  • Add flavor with herbs and spices. Try dishes with curry, chili powder or ginger to wake up your taste buds.
  • Add savory vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms or red onions to salads, sandwiches and main dishes.
  • Roast veggies, like carrots or green beans, with a little olive oil and some herbs. The flavors deepen into a nutty-sweet combination that melts in your mouth.

Turkey sausage is also a great option to help keep you on track in the New Year.
It's a lighter choice and adds lots of flavor to any dish. With great flavor developed through a natural hardwood smoking process, Johnsonville turkey sausage also eliminates the need for extra spices and seasonings - saving you both time and money.

In fact, this turkey sausage stir-fry can be prepared for just $1.12 per serving.
