5 Ways to Make Turkey Your Secret Weapon for Everyday Meals
1. Plan ahead!
When it comes to meal planning, a whole turkey delivers huge value as a ‘cook once, eat twice or more’ meal. You can buy a whole turkey to cook on the weekend and feed your family for several days during the week. Freeze portions of leftovers to use as meal-starters for quick weekday dinners and lunches.
2. Get back to basics!
Enjoying more meals at home is one of the best things you can do for your family. Cooking meals from scratch let you control the ingredients and include more health-boosting whole foods such as turkey, veggies and whole grains.
3. Boost your nutrients!
Turkey is packed with nutrients like vitamin B12 (important in keeping your nervous system – the body’s electrical wiring – working well), selenium (an antioxidant mineral) and zinc (for a strong immune system).
4. Make the switch!
Turkey makes a fantastic everyday choice for all your protein needs. Think about switching to turkey and turkey cuts for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Turkey is lean, nutrient-rich and
packed with protein to give you long-lasting energy that powers you through your busy everyday schedules and activities.
5. Bump up the protein!
Eating 20 to 30 grams of quality protein with all of your meals, along with being active, can help build and maintain muscle. Protein delivers hunger-curbing satisfaction to keep you energized for longer. Turkey is the power protein of choice – it’s an excellent source of high-quality protein with each 100 gram portion serving up about 30 grams of lean protein.
