A food product has to have more than just one thing going for it nutritionally to be what dietary experts call a “superfood.” Turkey pretty much has it all.

Skinless turkey breast is one of the leanest meats available with one of the highest amounts of protein. A four-ounce serving of boneless, skinless turkey breast contains 26 grams of protein, about one gram of fat and zero grams of saturated fat. A skinless turkey breast has 12 percent more protein than the same size serving of boneless skinless chicken breast. The lean protein content alone should qualify turkey as a superfood, but turkey has so much more to offer. Turkey is rich in all of the B vitamins, especially B6 and B12 which help our bodies convert food into energy. Turkey also provides an abundance of minerals such as immune boosting zinc, selenium and iron. Turkey also contains the amino acid tryptophan, which is commonly known to make you sleepy after your Thanksgiving meal. But did you know that tryptophan also helps the body produce serotonin, which has a calming effect and contributes to a happy mood?
