To eat lean or leaner
We’ve all sat down to eat Thanksgiving turkey and selected our favorite—white or dark cuts of meat. The white meat tends to contain less fat and can be drier than dark meat. Recently, however, the Mixed Stew crew was reminded that diet-conscious eaters can go a step further to consume a healthier portion of roast turkey by removing the skin. That’s mostly anyone’s prerogative, but we recommend choosing to eat the turkey breast without the skin for an even leaner meal that’s filling. Remember that boneless and skinless turkey breast medallions also make for a leaner substitute for boneless pork (aka “the other white meat”) chops.
