Fit Food: The Benefits of Turkey

With all the nutrients this lean protein packs into a single serving, it’s time to think past Thanksgiving—and make it a year-round staple. These recipes make it easy.
Mix 1.5 lbs of lean ground turkey (look for less than 7 percent fat) with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce, ½ cup minced scallions, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, ½ teaspoon of salt, ¾ cup of Panko breadcrumbs, and a sprinkle orcrushed red pepper. Form into patties and grill or cook in a nonstick pan until cooked through (165 degrees). Serve with toasted whole-grain buns spread with wasabi mustard.
