This is a MYTH!
✅Fact: Turkey is a great source of protein.
✅Skinless turkey is low in fat.
✅Turkey meat is a source of iron, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus.
✅Turkey can help lower cholesterol and help keep insulin levels stable.
SO WHY THE BAD REP?
❌Turkey can be very high in sodium, especially when packaged.
❌Turkey skin is high in fat.
❌Some meat, particularly pre-packaged slices can be processed and contain other substances.
❌Large amounts of tryptophan can make you sleepy.
📌AND… Obviously adding all the Thanksgiving goodies like pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, etc., packs on tons of calories and fat.
So go ahead, enjoy one portion of white meat, fresh turkey without the skin this Thanksgiving!
