Add a Healthy Touch to Everyday Meals with Canadian Turkey!

The beginning of a new year signals a fresh new start for many Canadians. Some people like to set goals to start eating better. Picking a protein that is versatile is key to making meal planning an easy task to perform for busy families. With all of the choices available, which one should you turn to? Have you considered turkey? Yes! Even after the holidays, this bird is a great choice, and Canadian Turkey has a gaggle of nutritious meal options for families to help you #PowerUpWithTurkey and  prep ahead for their busy weekly meals!

Choosing healthier ingredients to create tasty meals is not a compromise families have to make! Did you know how many ways turkey can be incorporated into a meal that is not only nutritious but delicious as well? This power-packed protein can be used to substitute other meat protein in nearly every recipe. It can also be a welcome addition to every meal you enjoy during the day (lunch, dinner, and yes, even breakfast!) to help supply your family with enough energy to get through a hectic day.

Were you aware that both the dark and white meat of a turkey work well with different spice profiles? This way, you are able to switch up how you prepare your meals according to their tastes without sacrificing on flavour. Canadian turkey is also a terrific ingredient that can also be repurposed into other meals throughout the week. Having the knowledge that your meals for the week are in your fridge or freezer, ready to go, takes a lot of the “What’s for Dinner” stress off of your shoulders.

Turkey is also a protein that is a healthy option for families to eat and enjoy, it would be great to add to your meals if you are planning to eat healthier this new year! Not sure where it would fit in to your new meal plans? Use these five “back to basics” tips to eat healthier throughout the year with lean, nutrient-rich turkey!

  1. Choose nutrient-rich foods first

Instead of removing certain foods from your diet, change this thought into focusing on adding food to your diet. Choose foods that are nutrient-rich first, such as whole grains, veggies and fruit, nuts, seeds, yogurt and lean meats (you know, like turkey). This allows you to enjoy what you eat and to still have room for fewer of those foods you might be wanting to eat less of. Why is turkey such a power-packed protein? It is packed with nutrients like vitamin B12 (key in keeping your nervous system working well), selenium (an antioxidant mineral) and zinc (for a strong immune system).

  1. Create a balanced plate: pair protein plus produce

A healthy plate combines protein-rich foods, such as turkey, with plant-based foods, such as veggies, to get as many nutrients as you can in a meal. Having as many balanced nutrients during every meal also creates a super food synergy that increases your body’s abilities to take in other nutrients. A great aspect of turkey is that it pairs well with all produce. There are so many flavour combinations that can accompany turkey on a plate to make a delicious and nutritious meal.

  1. Cook more meals at home

There have been many times when the hustle and bustle of a busy life makes us turn to convenience foods to serve for families. When more of your meals are made at home, you are able to control the ingredients being served to your family. When you make your foods “from scratch”, you will be more likely to get more good-for-you nutrients and save money in your pocket! Check out this turkey time-saver tip: Cook once, eat twice with planned leftovers. On the weekend, roast a whole turkey, a large turkey breast or extra thighs to eat for Sunday dinner and then add the leftovers to create quick meals during the week.

  1. Bump up the protein

Are you looking to be more active, feel more energized, or maintain a healthy weight this New Year? Once way to help accomplish this goal is by adding protein to your plate! Along with your workout routine, eating 20-30 grams of quality protein with your meals can help you build and maintain muscle. Turkey is a great power protein to turn to. It is an excellent source of high quality protein. Each 100-gram serving is lean and contains about 30 grams of protein.

Winter is a great time to enjoy a pipping bowl of soup. Take a look here to see how to create this Quick and Hearty Turkey and Barley Soup for your family to sip on and enjoy from scratch!

  1. Practice smart snacking

Do you get peckish in between meals? Turning to small snacks made with nutritious foods can give you a hand to help maintain your energy levels and deter you from overeating at your next meal. Leftover turkey is ideal choice when you need a snack to keep you nourished between meals. Proteins help to manage munchies and fight cravings for sweet treats. Combine turkey with a veggie or fruit to create a smart snack!

    Think of the mineral zinc like your inner boxer; it’s a key nutrient that helps your body fight off infections and heal wounds.All cuts of turkey will provide you with some body-boosting zinc, but ground turkey and dark turkey meat have the most; they are considered “excellent sources” of zinc. *

    You need zinc every day for good health:

    Zinc is vital for optimal growth and development.
    Zinc is good for your skin; it helps to heal wounds.
    Zinc is awesome for immunity: it helps build and strengthen your immune system.
    Zinc is needed to help you to taste and smell your food.
    An added bonus: turkey contains zinc that your body can easily absorb. Although you can get zinc from plant foods (e.g. whole grains), your body absorbs the zinc found in animal foods, like turkey, more easily.

  397. Brian Hwang says:

    Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin. That’s because your body can make vitamin D through exposure to sunlight on your skin. Vitamin D is found naturally in only a few foods – turkey being one of those foods.One of the main roles of vitamin D is to partner with calcium to build and maintain strong and healthy bones and teeth. In fact, vitamin D recommendations increase for older adults (71years+) in order to help reduce risk for osteoporosis.

    Vitamin D can also help you fight off infections as it plays an important role in keeping your immune system healthy.

    Vitamin D is also being studied for its role in reduction of risk for certain cancers, such as colorectal cancer; however, more research is needed to understand that role.

    Move over sunshine; many cuts of turkey are a source of Vitamin D!

  411. Brian Hwang says:

    Sodium is a mineral that you’ve likely heard you need to reduce. While it’s true, many of us get too much of it, we do need sodium to stay healthy.Sodium helps regulate blood pressure and muscle and nerve activity. Although we need some sodium in our diet, too much can lead to health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

    All fresh cuts of turkey are low in sodium. Choosing more fresh foods, like turkey, that are naturally low in sodium, and cooking more meals at home, are two smart steps you can take for good health.

    Tasty Tip: Since turkey is so flavourful, you don’t need to soak your bird in a salty marinade to make it tasty, like some other cuts of meat.
