It’s all good news unless you are a turkey around the holidays. Americans eat 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving and 22 million at Christmas. For sure there are health benefits, as Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it is also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein. Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties. All of which is a good thing to offset the mash potatoes and mac and cheese that are our favorite side dishes. Happy Thanksgiving.
