Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing

 

Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing

I love to roast a whole turkey on the weekend.  The house is filled with the most mouth-watering aromas and there is just something so homey and comforting about those delicious smells wafting from the oven. Plus, (shhh…don’t tell my family, they think I slave over a hot oven all day), but a traditional roast turkey dinner is one of the easier meals to prepare. And, not only is it a delicious dinner on Saturday or Sunday…big bonus…we have tasty leftovers for the entire week!

With spring finally here, there are many upcoming occasions where turkey can be the star of your celebration! It’s an easy and economical choice if you have family gatherings planned for Mother’s Day, Victoria Day, Father’s Day, family reunions, graduations, confirmations or birthdays and turkey can just as easily feed a larger crowd as a family of four.

Extra crispy roast turkey!

Another thing I love about Canadian turkey is it’s low-fat, high-protein content making it the ideal food to put on your table every day. These days, we’re all trying to eat healthier and this “Power Protein” is a great choice if you’re looking for a tasty and nutritious option to feed your family.

Turkey is considered a quality protein with about 30 grams of protein in every 100-gram serving. It’s also lean and nutrient-rich. This means it has a lot of nutrients per calorie. Another bonus – both the white and dark meat are considered lower in fat.

If you’re looking for a heart-healthy, low-fat choice – turkey breast is it! Each 100-gram serving is extra lean with just 3 grams of fat. Just keep the skin on while grilling to keep the turkey breast moist and lock in flavour; remove the skin before eating to keep it a low-fat option.

Turkey is a great way to lighten up everyday meals and with all the delicious recipes available, such as Southern Italian Turkey Pasta Puttanesca and BBQ Turkey Club with Spicy Mayo, your family won’t even realize you’re making healthier choices!

Need more reasons to choose Canadian turkey?

  • Fresh cuts of turkey are naturally low in sodium.
  • Most cuts of turkey are either lean or extra lean.
  • Every bite is filled with health-boosting nutrients including iron (to deliver oxygen through your body), zinc (for a healthy immune system), and selenium (an antioxidant mineral).
  • There are so many great reasons to eat this power protein that you can feel good every time you put tasty and nutritious turkey on your family’s table.

Tex-Mex Turkey Rice Bowl with Avocado Dressing

Choosing turkey for your everyday meals is easy with the variety of turkey parts you can find at your local butcher or grocery store:

  • Thighs, breasts, drumsticks, sausages and ground turkey are all readily available, making it super easy to include turkey in every meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  • It’s easy to swap Canadian turkey for the meat protein in all of your family favourite recipes since it’s a versatile option that works with many flavour profiles.
  • As an added bonus, it’s an economical choice because you can create several dinners, bank some leftovers, or cook up some make-ahead meals from a single whole turkey.

    I would love to lighten up my lunch with the BBQ TURKEY CLUB WITH SPICY MAYO sandwich. It looks so good.

    I make a lot of turkey dishes. I want to try the Hoisin Turkey & Lentil Lettuce Wraps to lighten up our meals.

    I just did a second round of tweets for today. While the form is registering that they have been done, they are not on Twitter. The first tweets I did today are there, but not these. Not sure what happened other days. I want you to know that I’m not deleting them. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Thanks.

    I love using Ground Turkey for pasta sauces, meatballs, shepherd’s pie to lighten up the recipes and make healthier choices

    Turkey can be used in so many ways omg we could eat a different meal for a month using turkey, I always cut some turkey up in small chunks and mix it with some dressing so if anyone wants a sandwhich it’s easy peasy

    I can use turkey to lighten up my meals by replacing other meats with turkey. The turkey would be delicious in nearly any recipe. We love using it in stuffed peppers. The recipe for the TURKEY APPLE & KALE GRAIN SALAD on their website looks delicious.

    I too love my home wafting with the aroma of fresh turkey roasting! I use all forms of turkey to replace red meat and agree with you on the fab healthy options and terrific uses for leftovers. A grilled turkey, avocado, sprouts, cucumber, thinly sliced tomato with fresh gluten free bread lightly toasted slathered with a swipe of cream cheese on one side and mango chutney in the other is a sandwich I have dreams of it is so yummy.
