Lean Ground Turkey

Lean ground turkey is one of my favorite healthy recipe swaps. Look for packages that are at least 90 percent lean, and use it to replace fatty ground chuck in tacos, burgers, meatballs, chili, and meat sauce to slash calories and unhealthy saturated fat. And, since you’re cutting down on the fat, you get even more high-quality protein to help squash hunger and build muscle mass. Using lean ground turkey instead of fatty ground beef in your recipes is one of the easiest ways to slim down and reduce your risk for heart disease and diabetes.
