Switching up your animal proteins is often suggested, and this way you also access the different vitamins and nutrient profiles that are within each different type. One source that is probably not as common, is turkey!
Turkey is rich source of protein, and also a great source ofiron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. If you can, do buy organic turkey, it means it won't contain any of the harmful pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics that are often given to them. Which means that you're not getting these harmful chemicals!
If you're in Australia then I'd definitely recommend purchasing turkey from GreenAg, they even play classical music for their birds to ensure they live as stress-free as possible!
