LET'S TALK TURKEY

Did you know that turkey breast roasted without the skin is lower in fat than any other commercially available meat?  That makes it a good choice for dieters and those watching their cholesterol levels.  In addition, it is a good source of zinc, iron, and the B vitamins.  The dark meat is good for you too.  It has more fat and calories than the breast but it also has more iron and zinc.

Caution:  If you buy ground turkey, read the label!  Ground turkey often is mostly dark meat and may contain the fatty skin.  And remember self-basting turkeys are injected with saturated fat!
