Nutrition: Low-fat Christmas LeftoversPosted: December 28, 2010
It’s Christmas time, and once again we face the battle of excesses – especially Christmas dinner. But don’t despair: despite many of the ‘naughty’ full-fat, high-sugar add-ons, the biggest meal of the year actually contains many superfoods that will make highly nutritious, low-fat meals well into January.
Take turkey for example, the main ingredient. “Turkey is one of the lowest fat mainstream meats around,” says Emma Turner from http://www.britishturkey.co.uk. “There’s just 155kcal, 1.7g fat and 22.6g protein in 100g of skinless grilled turkey breast meat. It’s also a good source of zinc, which is needed for a healthy immune system.”
