Is ground turkey good for weight loss?
Ground turkey is a great lean protein to incorporate into your lifestyle. Calorie wise, 99% lean ground turkey is 120 calories for 4 oz. compared to 96% lean been which is 213 calories. It is usually cheaper and easier to find than extra lean ground beef too. That being said, lean beef is great too. If you are on Weight Watchers, 99% lean ground turkey is zero points on most plans while 4 oz. 96% lean beef is 2 points, so don't think beef is out of the question on Weight Watchers.

These Family Friendly Healthy Ground Turkey Recipes are my favorite because they are usually pretty quick and hearty recipes. Some of my family's favorite recipes use ground turkey, and these recipes have converted many relatives who thought they were anti-ground turkey. It turns out, everyone has had one dry turkey burger in their life and decided ground turkey is always dry--THAT IS NOT TRUE. Ground turkey can be delicious, hearty, flavorful, and juicy if done correctly.
Here are my favorite healthy ground turkey recipes that I hope you and yours love as much as my family.
