My grand-daughters mommy is a very busy gal with 3 girls under the age of 8. This is a delicious recipe she created using healthy ingredients. Just a few changes to a recipe using turkey and wild rice instead of beef and white processed rice, along with not adding additional salt can make a huge difference in your diet.
