All along, turkey has been associated to once a year family feasts. You know, the Thanksgiving turkey. The Christmas turkey. Roast turkey stuffed with some yummy stuffing, eaten with gravy or cranberry sauce is vital for the end of the year celebrations.

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

for Christmas and Thanksgiving. You should have turkey as part of your everyday

diet. Especially the breast meat of the turkey, with no skin.

Why?

3 reasons.

1. Turkey meat has a very high protein content

2. Turkey meat itself contains low fat content.

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

Here are 2 of her roast turkey

recipes.

Protein

Ok, so we can get lots of protein from meat, fish and soya beans. Sure, beef

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

cholesterol.

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

While 1 oz of beef contains 20 and 30mg of cholesterol.

Large difference in artery clogging cholesterol involving beef and turkey. That

Turkey can make a significant difference.

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

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

steak.

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

Who wants lean muscle.

Fat

Most of the fat in poultry is found in the epidermis.

Skin in chicken or turkey, you eliminate the majority of the fat.

So just by switching

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

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

fat and no saturated fat. That’s a weight watcher’s dream.

Healthy as you get.

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

To his or her heart’s content, without consuming much fat. Still even if

You do switch to turkey, watch your portion size. Double the amount you eat and

you will still gain weight.

After

all, the yummiest food contain fat.

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