Ground turkey

The benefits of ground turkey extend beyond its healthfulness and convenience. A subtly flavored white meat, ground turkey pairs well with a variety of seasonings. The leanest ground turkey comes only from the breasts. For more flavorful and juicier meat, choose ground turkey that includes dark meat as well.

recipe

Ground turkey is a lower-fat alternative to beef chuck, and kidney beans -- loaded with vitamin C and omega-3s -- are an especially nutritious option. Yes, turkey contains tryptophan (an amino acid that can have a pleasantly sedative effect), but this one-pot dish has two other comfort-food essentials going for it: a warm temperature and a hearty makeup.

recipe

Few things delight young cooks as much as kid-sized food. These zesty turkey sliders, served with baked potato wedges, are a perfect fit for little hands -- and little appetites. Give these burgers and "fries" a healthier, more kid-friendly spin by baking them in the oven (no spattering grease!). Just make sure a grown-up handles the pans.
