Ingredient Selection Tips 🔎

Ground Turkey 🦃

When buying ground turkey, be aware of the different fat content. The frozen option is usually dark meat and often with some skin, and this one contains the most fat. Lean ground turkey, or ground chicken, breast is the lowest in fat, but it can be dry. Regular ground turkey that you can find in most stores is usually a combination of light and dark meat. The best quality meat is grass-fed, organic, or meat from a butcher store.

I highly recommend using Butcher Box’s ground turkey, one of the leanest and most flavorful meats I have ever tried. Plus, it’s completely GMO-free, grass-fed, and organic.

Eggs 🥚

Always try to find eggs that are free-range or organic, as they’ll be higher in nutritional value. You can place them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh for longer. Also, check the date when the eggs came to the store, the fresher the better!

Noteworthy Health Benefits 💯

Ground Turkey 🦃

Ground Turkey is a very nutritious food. It is loaded with proteins, vitamins B3, B6, B12, selenium, sodium, phosphorus, and zinc. 

Nutrients in turkey depend on the cut. Lighter-colored meat is lower in calories and fat and slightly higher in protein. Dark meat is higher in fat but also higher in nutrients. The skin contains the highest amount of calories and fat.

Here are some health benefits of eating lean ground turkey:

  • May lower the risk of cancer
  • May help in diabetes management
  • May lower bad cholesterol
  • Protects from cognitive decline

Spinach 🌿

Fresh spinach is a true superfood. Greens are very important to have in your diet. Spinach is rich in complex carbs, and insoluble fiber, and it is also packed with different vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, K1, folic acid, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins E, B6, and B9 which are all essential for good health.

The health benefits of eating spinach regularly are:

  • May lower the risk of cancer
  • Benefit eyes health
  • Reduces oxidative stress
  • May reduce blood pressure level
  • May help with diabetes management
  • May help with asthma prevention
  • It is good for bone health
  • Promotes healthy skin and hair
  • Promotes healthy digestive tract
