Eat Well-Stay Healthy: Turkey

Did you know that a 4-ounce serving of turkey breast contains only 1 gram of fat and is the leanest type of meat you can include in your diet?

It is easy to reduce the fat content of turkey because most of it resides in the skin, which can be easily removed. By including a serving of turkey as part of your Healthiest Way of Eating, you will not only be reducing your fat intake, but fulfilling 65% of your daily value for protein! Protein is a key building block not only for structural tissues, but also for immune defense cells, and it is involved in just about every other physiological function in your body.

Turkey also provides 47% of the daily value for selenium (a powerful antioxidant co-factor that helps protect against the damage to cell structure and DNA caused by free radicals), as well as many of the B vitamins, which are essential for energy production.

So, sharing your Thanksgiving meal with family and friends also means sharing a wealth of health-promoting benefits with those you love!
