I actually love to buy turkey as a cold cut meat for my sandwiches, because I knew it has a low fat content compared to for example ham, but I was really surprised that it made it to the Superfood list, but there are some good reasons.
- Turkey is low fat and high in protein – it is actually a versatile alternative to chicken
- It is also highly nutritious and one of the leanest protein sources on the planet
- And there are many more health benefits of turkey
This creamy, tasty and super versatile product is actually also part of the Superfoods.
- Greek yoghurt contains less sugar and more proteins than other yoghurt, because it is strained to remove the carbohydrate-rich whey
- It’s thick texture leaves you fuller than more watery versions and the lower level of lactose (milk sugar) it contains makes it easier to digest.
- It’s best when plain, as the flavored and sweetened varieties contain too much sugar – it’s better to use plain greek yoghurt add fresh fruit and sweeten with agave for example
