Ground turkey is NOT better than ground beef.

It can be . . . but it’s just as likely to be as bad or worse than beef. There are good and terrible versions of ground turkey. It’s important that you don’t just pick up a package because it says “turkey” on it.  

As a consumer, you must pay attention to the percentages. Look closely on the package to make sure you’re purchasing at least 93% lean, if not 99% lean. Otherwise, your ground turkey is probably only 75% to 85% lean, which is like a basic hamburger meat.

Take 60 extra seconds to make sure you get the good stuff. Otherwise . . . you’ll be a turkey when it comes to ground turkey! And somewhere a food manufacturer is laughing out loud because they fooled you!
