Turkey is not just for Christmas….

Turkey is often over looked which is a shame as it has numerous health benefits and is incredibly lean. It is a rich source of protein, iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus.

It is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body’s energy production.

Regular turkey consumption can help lower cholesterol levels. The meat is low-GI and can help keep insulin levels stable.

Turkey contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system.

It is also a source of selenium, which is essential for thyroid hormone metabolism. It also boosts immunity and acts as an antioxidant.

You can see in the above photo an example of  where I have switched to turkey when creating this cottage pie and it was DELICIOUS! Try substituting it in some of your recipes and let me know how you get on. I love hearing from you!
