Turkey & Veggie Skillet

This is a filling low calorie gluten-free, Paleo meal.  I have been having to concentrate on logging my food and watching my calories a little closer lately.  As someone that is formerly obese I have to be pretty precise about what I put in my body.  I add the coconut oil to give this a little bit of the good fat that I am losing by using something like ground turkey which is low fat.
