Ground turkey breast, 99% fat-free, can be found in most supermarkets. It’s made completely from the turkey breast, unlike other ground turkey which is a blend of white and dark meat.
Brown rice noodles or rice noodles are gluten-free and can be found in most supermarkets in the pasta aisle. I found brown rice noodles at Vons/Safeway. Whole Foods sells them too. If your not gluten-free, you can use your favorite pasta such as whole-grain spaghetti. Note: Brown rice noodles take about 15 minutes to cook.
Ginger, in a jar, can be found in the produce section where garlic, in a jar, is sold.
