Healthy Turkey Recipes
Turkey is a meat popularly served around the holidays, but it is also great for every day meals. It is rich in vitamins and nutrients like B-6, B-12, niacin, choline, selenium, protein and zinc.
Although many think that its content of tryptophan can make you sleepy, the amount present in the meat is so minimal that including it in your meal should not make you any more drowsy than you would be if you eat any other meat. Rather, the tryptophan boosts serotonin in the body which promotes alertness and elevates mood.
Turkey is also lower in calories and fat as compared to other meats.
Another great thing about turkey is that is versatile enough to be featured in a variety of dishes. It can be used in pasta meals, served with vegetables or baked into dishes. It can also be disguised as a healthier form of bacon or sausage.
