With the help of a few GoodCook kitchen gadgets, this meal comes together in only 20 minutes. Starting with the ground turkey, the GoodCook Meat Chopper evenly distributes taco seasoning while chopping the ground meat before making patties. We swapped out traditional oil on the sweet potatoes for a light misting with the GoodCook Oil Sprayer. It sprays a light misting of oil without drenching your food, reducing calories without reducing taste. And prepping an avocado has never been easier than with the GoodCook Avocado Slicer. This all-in-one tool pits, slices and dices an avocado in seconds. We’ll take all the help we can get!         

 

Sheet pan dinners are a favorite in busy households, bringing no-fuss solutions to dinnertime and requiring little clean-up. We use the GoodCook 17 x 11” Baking Sheet to get sheet pan dinners on the table fast. It’s heavy-duty, has an easy-to-clean non-stick coating, and is roomy enough to roasting a batch of protein and veggies together. Are you ready for a healthy, quick and tasty one pan dinner?

Garlic, shallots and parmesan lend this recipe the mouthwatering flavors of a hearty pasta meal with extra crunch and texture from the zoodles. If the thought of making zoodles intimidates you, the GoodCook Countertop Spiralizer is the easiest way to transform zucchini into perfect, spirally zoodles in no time. With three blades to choose from, you can switch blade thickness and even spiralize sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots or cucumbers. They’re all tasty substitutes for zoodles and make this recipe deliciously low-carb.
