Fit Food: Turkey
While turkey gets its day in the sun (er, the oven) on Thanksgiving, the bird is sometimes overshadowed by more popular choices like chicken or beef the rest of the year. But this nutritional powerhouse is a great way to add variety to your daily diet — without tacking on extra fat and unwanted calories. Check it out:
- One 3.5 oz serving (about the size of a deck of cards) of skinless turkey breast packs 30 grams of protein—but only 161 calories and 4 grams of fat.
- Turkey is loaded with B vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, iron, and zinc — those are some serious nutrients. Plus it’s rich in selenium, an antioxidant necessary for thyroid metabolism and boosting immunity.
- It also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that triggers serotonin production and helps you catch some zzz's.
