Taking Advantage of Turkey August 18 2012, 2 Comments

 

Everyone knows that turkey is good for you,  so stop taking turkey for granted.  We tend  to only eat turkey during holiday meals and most people have the misconception that cooking turkey is a long and complex meal to make and prepare.   Remember that you do NOT have to buy the whole turkey if you go to the right butcher shop.  You can buy just the turkey breast, wings, legs, or even cutlets at a good price and without the hassle of preparing a long meal.   Stop buying the frozen, junky turkeys that your grocery store only offers at that price so you will buy the rest of your groceries with them.

 If you are only cooking for 2 people, buy some turkey cutlets and throw them on the grill.  If you have a family of 4-6, buy  a turkey breast and impress your whole family with a great and easy meal.  Everyone knows that turkey is good for you, but most people do not know the true benefits to eating turkey.  Just one serving of turkey  provides you with 65% of your recommended daily intake of protein.  My family likes to cook a turkey breast, then slice it down for sandwiches for the week.   It’s cheaper and better tasting than just buying regular lunch meat.   One turkey sandwich will almost give you the amount of protein you will need for the day.  Turkey also contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention, that alone should be a good reason to eat more turkey.  I won’t bore you with all the nutritional facts and advantages that turkey provides for your body, the bottom line is that it is great for your body and great to eat as well.  There are so many foods that are good for you, but just don’t seem to hit the spot.  Turkey is the perfect combination that your belly and your body need and love.
