Delicious Keto Turkey Recipes
Celebrating National Turkey Lover’s Month
If you think feasting on turkey is only for the Holidays, you are in for a surprise! In honor of National Turkey Lover’s Month, we bring you Delicious Keto Turkey Recipes.
Traditionally, we think of turkey as the main star for Thanksgiving dinner. Still, turkey is available year-round, and thanks to its high protein, low-fat content, and versatility, turkey can be a part of your diet every week. Before we reveal the Delicious Keto Turkey Recipes, find out why it’s delicious and nutritious.
Benefits of Eating Turkey
Consuming turkey provides many benefits, including:
- Turkey is high in protein which helps you feel fuller for longer
- Eating protein will help build and maintain lean muscle mass
- High-protein foods like turkey keep insulin levels stable after meals; therefore, you won’t experience the typical sugar crash associated with high-carbohydrate meals
- Turkey contains tryptophan, an essential amino acid used by the body to produce melatonin which helps regulate your sleep and wake cycle, and serotonin, believed to help control appetite, mood, and pain.
