Ground Turkey, as healthy as advetised?
After a lengthy discussion with a friend who is nutrition conscious, we did a little research and discovered:
Unless you have come to prefer the flavor of ground turkey or chicken over ground beef, you may want to reconsider using ground beef for health reasons.
It seems like it would be no contest when using turkey for burgers, meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, chili and lasagna, but ground turkey very often includes fat and skin. A mere 3-ounce serving can contain more than 13 grams of fat and 40+ percent of your day's worth of cholesterol-- almost triple the amount contained in 90 percent lean ground beef!! Regular ground chicken is no better.
I'm only passing this on as something of interest to consider.
