Turkey is a superfood!


At last! Turkey receives its just recognition. Passed over as the official national bird in favor of the eagle (despite Ben Franklin’s enthusiastic support), the turkey is too often relegated to a once-a-year meal. Ignored and virtually invisible eleven months of the year, it’s been a quiet few hundred years for the poor bird. Turkey is a SuperFood. Highly nutritious, low in fat, inexpensive, versatile, and always available, the turkey has finally come into its own. When you discover all of turkey’s terrific nutritious benefits, it will surely become part of your regular diet.
Skinless turkey breast is one of, if not the leanest meat protein sources on the planet. This alone could make it a SuperFood: but turkey also offers a rich array of nutrients, particularly niacin, selenium, vitamins B6 and B12, and zinc. These nutrients are heart-healthy and are also valuable in helping to lower the risk for cancer.
