Healthy Diet

While some of us love a juicy steak from time to time, others prefer to avoid red meat altogether, either by choice or for health reasons. For those who can’t indulge in beef, turkey is a great nutritious alternative. In addition to containing plenty of protein, turkey has an amino acid called tryptophan that can help balance your mood and when it’s prepared fresh without the skin, has even less calories than chicken and pork.
