Healthier Holiday Meals: Trim the Fat to Stay on Point with Your Diet

  

Turkey

Roasted or grilled, turkey meat is very low fat but the skin is where we can be getting some extra (and unnecessary) fat into our meal. And if the turkey is fried, which is delicious, there is a much higher fat and calorie content.

The Fix for Turkey

Opt for a roasted or grilled turkey to allow for a good flavor without the added fat of frying, and to get some great flavor in the meat without a need to eat the oh-so-tempting skin, use an herbed rub directly on the meat before cooking and/or inject the meat of the breast with a vegetable stock and spices of your choice. Adding flavor directly to the meat allows you to enjoy it without missing the fat from the skin.
