Skip the skin for a healthier Thanksgiving.
Save yourself some unneeded fat and cholesterol by skipping the turkey skin this Thanksgiving.
Skinless turkey contains fewer calories and about half the fat content as turkey that still has the skin on.
The good news is that turkey is good for you, since it’s low in fat and high in protein.
Just make sure to keep proper serving sizes in mind when going for that skinless turkey. For adults, one serving is about the size of a deck of cards (3 to 4 ounces) and only 5 to 6 ounces total are recommended daily of meat, poultry and fish.
