Great Stuff!

There's loads of great stuff out there to enhance your physical and spiritual health. Every two weeks, All Spirit Fitness brings you something we've found useful. Sometimes it's a brand new fitness tool, sometimes it's an everyday item that you can find at the store. Whatever it is, rest assured that if it's on this page, we think it's great!


Turkey

Although Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are considered nutritional minefields for those who are watching their weight, there are healthy choices amongst the high-fat, high-calorie selections. Turkey, for example, is one of the healthiest meats you can eat. It's lower in calories, saturated fat and cholesterol than other meat choices, especially if you opt for white meat. But if you prefer dark meat, don't despair - although turkey leg and thigh meat contain more calories than the breast, you'll also be getting twice the iron - 15% of your daily value per 3 ounces. No matter whether you choose light or dark meat, turkey also contains hefty amounts of B vitamins and is a great source of protein. Just remember to remove the skin!

To keep your holiday meal healthy, remember to add gravy sparingly, if at all. Have a reasonable amount of turkey (a serving is really just 3 ounces) and eat slowly - you don't have to stuff yourself. The same goes for the sides - and don't slather slabs of butter on your rolls and potatoes. If you're having seconds of anything, make it the vegetables (as long as they don't contain a lot of added fat). If there's more than one dessert, have samplings of the choices instead of whole servings. Take the time to really enjoy every bite and you won't feel like you're depriving yourself. In fact, you'll feel better and less sluggish if you avoid overeating. It's not the tryptophan in turkey that makes you sleepy after a holiday meal - it's the sheer amount of food you're shoveling in! So go easy on the portions.

Cooking turkey is really an easy process. This article from Discovery Health tells you how to do it.
