30 healthy turkey recipes

Meat is a valuable source of protein and other nutrients. But when it comes to a healthy diet, it’s important to choose the right kind of meat and eat the correct portion size. Turkey is a relatively inexpensive source of protein, with more protein per gram than both chicken and beef, while remaining lower in fat and cholesterol than other meats. It also delivers vitamins and minerals.

Here are some key points about turkey meat:

  • Eighty-five grams of roasted turkey breast contains around 125.
  • In contrast, 85 grams of roasted dark turkey meat contains around 147 calories.
  • The dark meat of turkey typically contains more vitamins and minerals.
  • Turkey breast meat contains fewer calories and fat than most other cuts of meat.
  • Turkey contains vitamins B-6 and B-12, niacin, choline, selenium, and zinc.
  • Processed turkey meat can have a high sodium content.
  • Pasture-raised turkeys typically have higher omega-3 content than factory-farmed turkeys.

  1. Ah shoot! Still need to prepare the chicken-recipe…forgot to buy the lemons. Next week it is 🙂
    You know, fat and cholesterol aren’t that bad at all? Sugar and wheat are the silent ‘killers’ when it comes down to food 😉

    1. There are good and bad fats and cholesterol. I think sugar is a problem because any item in the supermarket seems to contain sugar. I like my sugar with coffee, a teaspoon of sweetness can´t be that bad 😉 I panic when I read the labels and I see that cheese has sugar, bread has sugar, sausages have sugar, and so on. And I have to confess that I love wheat, bread, cakes… I have no problem with wheat, but there are a lot of celiac people out there.

      1. Wheat are triggers for so many health-issues, like auto-immune disorders, inflammation, arthritis and many more. Good and bad fats, cholesterol; that has been proven to be a ‘hoax’. It’s all about balance and eating pure and natural food.
        Try coconut-blossom-sugar for your coffee 😉 Don’t be scared of natural sugars in for instance vegetables and fruits.
        I don’t follow Paleo to the letter, just try to eat as natural/pure as possible, but this a very informative side, worthwhile to look into 😉 And google Mark Sisson and his blue print, so interesting!

      2. Europe was built upon wheat thousands of years ago. I don´t know what they do to wheat now, but wheat itself can´t be bad. Thousands of years eating wheat are proving it.
        I googled food and bad fats hoax and I didn´t find anything close to what you say. I would love to read about it.
        Thanks for your interest but I´m very happy with my eating habits and the results. Anyway, I´ll take a look to this guy 😉

      3. Try ‘what’s with wheat’ and ‘eat the yolks’ 😉
        But as long as you’re healthy, that’s most important! Everyone is unique and there isn’t a lifestyle which is good for everyone in general. I always say, what is good for you, doesn’t have to be good for me and vice versa 😉
        Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Big hug, XxX

    1. No, the baking time is the same, no matter for how many 🙂 What I do I recommend you is adjusting the rest of the ingredients, or that turkey is going to be too spicy 😉
      Let me know how it goes!
