While it has always been a dream of mine to be able to eat a Thanksgiving meal every single day of my life, alas, the time and effort that goes into this special American Holiday – which is right around the corner now that it is November might I add – is too much to handle in everyday life. That is of course, if you’re not lucky enough to be a Trophy wife sans kids, responsibilities and a fiery burning passion for cooking…
Anyways, we digress.
Turkey may be the staple of a Thanksgiving meal, but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t eat it on the reg. As a matter of fact, you should! It’s satisfying, high in protein, but leaner than beef! Why wouldn’t you eat it regularly?
Even if you do have it on occasion when you order a turkey chili or turkey burger – for health’s sake, of course – we think you could do a better job of branching out.
Below are some turkey recipes you can eat every day – not just turkey day.
