Ground Turkey Fried “Rice”

Fried rice is one of my favorite foods to eat at a Chinese restaurant, but I don’t like all of the calories that comes with it, so I do not order it much.  I have been craving fried rice, so I decided to recreate a healthier version!  I swapped a few ingredients and loaded up on the veggies!  Follow the recipe below for the delicious recipe!
