Health Guide for the Holidays
Turkey might be the Thanksgiving centerpiece, but it's also a common dish during the other winter holidays as well, and it's actually a healthy choice, so don’t hesitate to grab a second helping (or third). It’s a protein-rich food without many calories, giving you 74 percent of your daily protein intake in a 340-calorie serving (140 g). It’s a bit high in cholesterol (42% of daily limit) but offers helpful amounts of other beneficial vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin B6 and zinc. Good thing there’s always enough of it to go around.
