About the Crazy Turkey Salad Recipe

I love to prepare Turkey salad every time I have some leftovers after a great thanksgiving dinner with my family and friends. Just imagine the taste of the turkey meat, roasted (has the texture of chicken but with a stronger flavor), and the fruits’ combined flavors.

Most of us are reserved to try new tastes when it comes to poultry, and if you are one of these people, I assure you, by deciding to prepare this crazy turkey salad you’ll make the greatest decision ever. Depending on what you like the most, you can try one of the 3 different yogurt flavors: peach, orange, or lemon.

No matter which one you choose, the recipe is awesome and you’ll have a great dish waiting to be devoured. Moreover, this type of salad is very healthy and energizing, giving you the “wings” needed to have a great day.

To answer the question, turkey meat is very healthy and is used for weight-loss diets around the world.


Does turkey make you sleepy?

I am asked a lot if the turkey meat makes you sleepy because contains the amino acid tryptophan, known for forming the basis of brain chemicals that make people tired. To answer the question, this is just a myth, and turkey meat can be eaten without hesitation, giving you energy, not taking it!

The turkey meat is cooked just like any other poultry meat, the difference is that it has no fat and has a specific taste, sweet and tender.

If you have a great chance to find turkeys directly at farms, you are lucky, those are wonderful and tasty! Every Thanksgiving, all the food magazines come up with new techniques for how to cook a perfect turkey. Cooking it doesn’t have to be difficult.


Is Turkey good for losing weight?

As I said above, turkey meat is even better than chicken if you want to lose weight, therefore is a good idea to keep it in your diet meal plan. Look for lean or extra-lean varieties of turkey
