    • Turkey - You can sub ground turkey for ground chicken and ground beef
    • Veggies - If you don't like celery, carrots, or spinach - simply omit
    • Whole30/Paleo - To make paleo/whole30 simply omit blue cheese and the yogurt sauce
    • Coconut Flour - If you aren't gluten free/strict paleo Whole30 you can use whole wheat breadcrumbs instead of coconut flour
