The holidays are upon us, and with them, family time, festive meals, and an unfortunate side effect of weight gain.
Better Homes and Gardens lists 6 superfoods to help you eat healthier come next weekend – turkey breast, cranberries, pumpkin (also see our post), whole wheat dinner rolls, sweet potatoes, and peas. Too bad there’s no dessert in that list, but how about some fresh apples?
A 3.5 oz serving of skinless turkey breast is about the size of a deck of cards. It is rich in protein (30gr which is about half your daily requirement) and practically fat free (only 4 gr). It is low in cholesterol and high in folic acid and several important minerals, iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium as well as B vitamins.
Generally, whiter cuts of meat are leaner than darker ones. So if you can’t get the breast, the next best options are leg or wing.
