The Low Carb Diabetic: Too Much Turkey !

I do hope all of our readers had a good Christmas, as Eddie and I did. We thank you for the many good wishes we have received from comments on the blog and also by email. I think for most of us it was different to other years. Here in the UK, due to changes in our Covid regulations many of us had to change our holiday plans at almost the last minute – not easy!

So many may have bought Turkey hoping to enjoy it with other family members and then alas were not able to. If you may be someone who has too much Turkey left over, or perhaps may be looking for Turkey recipe suggestions, do please read on …

Turkey is one of those tasty meats that is positively good for you. It has essential nutrients that are good for the whole family. It contains:

Protein, which nourishes every cell of your body. Protein helps build muscles and bones, so is essential for childhood development. But you may not be aware that it’s also needed to stop muscle wasting, so is crucial as you get older too.

B Vitamins, which help to unlock the energy from foods. Turkey breast is a source of vitamin B6, which helps keep your red blood cells healthy and reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Selenium, which helps keep your hair and nails healthy, it is also needed to keep your immunity topped up, and is also vital as a protection against damage to your cells and tissues.

Phosphorus, is needed for normal growth and development of bones, it also helps to release the energy from food.
