  • Nutrition Tip

    Turkey is a great source of amino acids — the building blocks of protein. Turkey is also a source of L-tryptophan which can have a relaxing effect. Tryptophan helps with the production of serotonin, a mood regulator within the body.

    Generally low in fat and high in protein, turkey is a good source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and B vitamins. While turkey’s dark meat contains more fat, it also contains more iron than its white meat. Whether you start with frozen or fresh turkey, enjoy this Irish Rebel Stew as a healthy way to incorporate turkey into your diet.
