How healthy is Turkey…………………..

Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein. Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties.

Ground turkey is healthier than ground beef. It contains less saturated fat, calories, and cholesterol than lean ground beef. Be sure to check the packaging though, some turkey is made with dark meat, which tends to have more fat in it than ground turkey breast.

Roasted Pumpkin-Apple Soup
Apples add just a hint of sweetness to this velvety pumpkin soup. Try it as a delightful first course for a special meal…………………..

Avocado and Pumpkin Salsa
Store-bought salsas are convenient and come in many varieties. However, this avocado and pumpkin salsa–one you won’t find on any grocery shelf–is worth making from scratch. Creamy avocados, fresh tomato, and canned pumpkin are jazzed up with cilantro, lime juice, and a touch of hot pepper sauce, resulting in a salsa that’s seriously delicious. Serve with baked tortilla chips or over grilled chicken breasts……………………..

Pumpkin Ravioli with Olive and Fennel Tomato Sauce
This easy ravioli recipe features exotic North African Mediterranean flavors. The sweet pumpkin takes on the fennel and oregano flavors well; the salty olives and cheese combined with acidic tomatoes and lemon balances everything out. Look for wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the deli………………………

Vegetarian……………………….

Don’t load up on junk food! Just because potato chips are vegetarian doesn’t mean they should be a staple of your new diet. Work and try new fruits and veggies into your diet. Don’t overlook certain produce because you’ve never had it before. Eat Healthy!

Thoroughly dry all meats before cooking……………………

This helps the meat to brown quickly and, on poultry, crisps up the skin. Nothing like crispy skin on fried chicken!

Storing Bananas…………………………..

Keep bananas fresh for longer by wrapping the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. Better yet, separate each banana. Both tactics block ethylene gases from releasing out of the stem, thereby ripening the fruit too fast.

Slow-Cooker Chuck Roast with Potatoes and Carrots, Perfect Prime Rib,

This slow-cooker chuck roast is winter comfort food at its finest. A bright, slightly sweet sauce balances the rich and tender braised beef. You can substitute multi-colored baby potatoes (halved) for the Yukon variety and fresh fennel fronds for the parsley, if desired…………………………

Perfect Prime Rib
Cooking prime rib can be intimidating–it’s such a big piece of meat and you’re usually making it for a special occasion, like Christmas or a formal dinner, so you want to get it just right. But it needn’t be stressful: This easy prime rib recipe calls for just a handful of ingredients and lays out how to cook prime rib so it’s juicy, tender and full of flavor, without a lot of fuss. Cooking the prime rib low and slow safeguards the meat from cooking unevenly. See the Tips section below for more advice on making the perfect prime rib. And if you have leftovers, they make a killer sandwich!……………………………….

Beef Rib Roast with Mushrooms and Fennel
The edible wild mushrooms you can find depend on where you live. They add woodsy and earthy flavors, but cultivated cremini and white buttons are delicious here too. Well-stocked supermarkets often have cultivated “wild” varieties like hen of the woods, matsutake, yellowfoot and hedgehog–all great in this recipe………………………………

Potatoes to the rescue………………

Over salted your soup or stew? Put in a peeled potato and potato will absorb all the salt. It takes about 10 minutes.

Buying Turnips……………………

Choose small turnips, which will be the youngest, with the sweetest flavor and best texture. They should be heavy for their size and firm, without any nicks or cuts. If the greens are attached, they should be brightly colored and fresh. Turnips will keep, tightly wrapped in the refrigerator, for up to two weeks.

Onions themselves are low in calories and contain a spectrum of vitamins, minerals and fiber and no fat. Peel and chop an onion.
