HEALTH BENEFITS OF TURKEY:

1. Get Your Protein

There are about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids.

Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein. Eat a turkey sandwich

for lunch and you’ll almost have your daily protein covered. Its protein content makes turkey a healthy meat choice.

2. Protect Yourself From Cancer

A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention.

Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system.

Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate

cancer-friendly free radicals in the body.

3. Get Your B Vitamins

Turkey is considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins

in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your

recommended intake of B6.

4. Benefit From Less Saturated Fat

Saturated fat is necessary for biological functions, hormone production, padding for organs and energy.

While saturated fat is necessary for a healthy body, most moderately-active people need to avoid overindulging.

Turkey has under 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat per 4-oz. serving.

5. Choose Organic, Pasture-Based Turkey

Grass-fed turkey raised under organic conditions convey the most health benefits. Grass-fed turkeys offer

higher nutrition and are superior to birds given antibiotics or raised without access to natural pasture.

Consider looking for a local, grass-based poultry farm when shopping for organic turkeys.

FFWPT: Top 6 Alkaline Foods to Eat Every day for Vibrant Health

Leave a comment

The typical  American diet is a deadly one, consisting primarily of toxic and acid-forming foods like processed sugars,

artificial sweeteners,  refined grains, conventionally produced meats and dairy, and hidden genetically modified organisms.

All this, combined with a plethora of other challenging environmental factors (such as lack of rest, psychological stress,

and pharmaceutical drugs), mean it’s no wonder that more and more people are being diagnosed with chronic, degenerative

illnesses or otherwise deadly conditions for which modern conventional medicine claims to have no known cure.

One of the basic underlying problems with this unsustainable lifestyle – and there are many – is the average consumer’s

lack of understanding that the body must balance the blood’s pH levels at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365 in order to survive.

When a person ingests food to “burn” for fuel, the digestive and metabolic process transforms it into a kind of ash which is

either acidic or alkaline. The laws of modern biochemistry further explain that it is not the organic matter of foods (whether

the food itself is acidic or alkaline), but their inorganic matter (such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, sulfur,

phosphorous; that is, how they break down in our bodies), that determines either the acidity or alkalinity of this ashy residue.

For this reason, and because all foods in nature contain both acid and alkaline-forming elements according to the

Conscious Living Center, balance is either achieved or thwarted as a direct result of the foods we choose to eat. Too many

acid-forming foods can have dire consequences for our health, with “acidosis” being a common diagnosis in diabetics,

for example. This is because when the nutrients required to maintain this slightly alkaline state cannot be obtained

from food, the body will instead draw from its own stores, like the bones or other vital tissues – damaging its ability to repair

itself and detoxify heavy metals, thereby making a person more vulnerable to fatigue and illness. And the margin for error

is small. Even an only slightly acidic pH of 6.9 can actually lead to coma and death.

Of course, the ultimate goal is balance. Eating too many alkalizing foods can lead to its own fair share of complications

over time, but the risk of this is seemingly less likely, given the current sorry state of today’s highly addictive consumerist

diet. To combat the effects of such a diet, here are six of the most alkaline-forming foods to work into your everyday meals:

1. Root vegetables

Due to the healing “yang” nature of these foods in traditional Chinese medicine,  and their tendency to be more rich in

minerals than many other vegetables, it may be safe to say that you can’t get enough of them. Look for radishes especially

(black, red or white), as well as beets, carrots, turnips, horseradish and rutabaga. Ready to eat after steaming for just

15-20 minutes, root vegetables will help you feel both satiated and better grounded.

2. Cruciferous vegetables

These are the veggies we all know and love, made even more delicious with just a small amount of healthy, homemade

sauce like pesto. Choose from broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and the like.

3. Leafy greens

These include kale, Swiss chard, turnip greens and spinach – of which spinach may in fact be the best pick. Known especially

for its rich vitamin K and folate content, spinach is also packed with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber,

helping to improve digestion and even vision.

 

4. Garlic

A true miracle food, garlic appears at the top of innumerable lists of foods that encourage overall health, and alkaline-forming

food is no exception. Among its other benefits are its ability to promote cardiovascular and immune health by lowering blood

pressure, cleansing the liver and fighting off disease.

5. Cayenne peppers (capsicum)

As part of a family of potent, tropical peppers which contain enzymes essential to endocrine function, cayenne is among the

most alkalizing foods. It is known for its antibacterial properties and is a rich supply of vitamin A, making it a helpful agent in

fighting off the harmful free radicals that lead to stress and illness.

6. Lemons

Lemons may be the most alkalizing food of all. As a natural disinfectant, it can heal wounds while also providing potent and

immediate relief for hyperacidity and virus-related conditions, as well as coughs, colds, flu and heartburn. Lemon also works

to energize the liver and promote detoxification.

So it can’t hurt to think twice about what’s on your plate at your next meal, but not doing so might. Just applying that age-old

motherly advice to “eat your vegetables” can be a solid first step in achieving better health.
