Turkey isn't just for Thanksgiving anymore, and the National Turkey Federation has more than 1,500 recipes to prove it, including low-carbohydrate, high-protein recipes that fit the popular diets that 30 million to 40 million Americans now follow.
The recipes, available for free at www.eatturkey.com, provide easy, nutritious, great-tasting ways to serve turkey year-round. And because turkey has 8 percent more protein and less fat than beef or chicken, it is the perfect - and often overlooked - protein for dieters on low-carb eating plans1.
