Celebrating National Turkey Lovers Month

DanPoultry, This Land of Ours

turkey monthGobble, gobble, gobble. No, it isn’t Thanksgiving…yet. Cathy Isom does have some delicious facts about why you don’t have to five months to celebrate a famous holiday meal. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

This may surprise you, but June is National Turkey Lovers’ Month! You might think this would be designated for the month of November, since millions of Turkeys are consumed on Thanksgiving Day. However, two-thirds of the turkeys produced annually is actually consumed during months other than November.

Turkey can be served in a variety of ways for each meal of the day.  It is high in protein, which is important for building lean muscle mass and staying active. In fact, a three-ounce serving of boneless, skinless turkey breast contains 26 grams of protein, only one gram of fat and zero grams of saturated fat.

National Turkey Lovers Day is actually celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June, which is this Sunday.
