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. Leftovers make a delicious Turkey Sloppy Joe.
