Turkey Nutrition

When raw, turkey breast meat is 74% water, 25% protein, 1% fat, and contains no carbohydrates (table). In a 100-gram (3+1⁄2-ounce) reference amount, turkey breast supplies 465 kilojoules (111 kilocalories) of food energy, and contains high amounts (20% or more of the Daily Value, DV) of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, and phosphorus, with moderate content (10–19% DV) of pantothenic acid and zinc. A 100 gram amount of turkey breast contains 279 mg of tryptophan, a low content compared to other amino acids in turkey breast meat.[20] There is no scientific evidence that this amount of tryptophan from turkey causes post-meal drowsiness.[21][22]"

Be creative and do what works for you with turkey, onions, fruits, and vegetables. Cooking food works best when people observe others and practice cooking as often as they can. I recommend a personal chef if you choose not to prepare your meal or don't have the time to cook. Check Google for a local private chef.
