All along, turkey has been associated to once a year family feasts.

The Truth Is, turkey is such a healthy meat, it should not be reserved ONLY

You ought to have turkey as part of your daily

diet. Especially the breast meat of the turkey, without the skin.

Why?

3 reasons.

1.

2. Turkey meat itself contains low fat content.

3. Turkey can be really yummy. My mom cooks a fantastic roast turkey.

Here are just two of her roast turkey

recipes.

Protein

Sure, beef

Packs lots of protein that you body needs, but red meats are high in

cholesterol.

For example, 1 ounce of turkey contains between 15 mg and 24 mg cholesterol

While 1 ounce of beef contains 20 and 30mg of cholesterol. It all adds up to a

Large gap in artery clogging cholesterol between beef and turkey. That

Means if you have heart disease or high blood pressure, switching from beef to

Turkey can make a big difference.

As for protein, USA Poultry and Egg Export Council billed turkey as the

perfect protein. It’s more protein than chicken, or even a top loin beef

steak.

That makes turkey the ideal food for growing children, athletes and anyone

Who wants lean muscle.

Fat

That means, by trimming off

The skin in chicken or turkey, you eliminate most of the fat.

On the other hand have the fat embedded in the meat itself.

To poultry alone, and taking away the skin, you effectively eliminate most of the fat.

In fact, 3 ounces of skinless, boneless turkey breast contains a mere 1g of

fat and no saturated fat. That is a weight watcher’s dream. This is about as

Healthy as you get.

This makes turkey the Perfect meat for anyone who wants to stay slim, yet eat

To their heart’s content, without consuming much fat. Still even if

You do change to turkey, watch your portion size. Double the amount you consume and

you will still gain weight.

After

all, the yummiest food contain fat.

Then again, with the ideal seasoning, all, turkey can be yummy.

Just try my mother’s recipes like her roast

turkey with rice stuffing or the roast

Turkey with bread crumb stuffing. It is time to change to something healthy and yummy. . like turkey.
