When you’re raising kids it’s funny how so many of your own personal tastes and culinary passions automatically get passed on to your little one(s. What you eat during your pregnancy will likely be what they crave. As a family we don’t eat a lot of red meat, so neither does Kenya.
I do love myself a hamburger, but most of the time I prefer to make a good turkey burger for several reasons_ One, turkey meat is a lot less expensive then the high quality grass-fed beef that I would want to buy (most beef produced in this is corn-fed and since cattle do not naturally eat corn, producers must pump them full of antibiotics so the corn does not make them sick). I bought 1.5 pounds of 7% fat ground-turkey for $3.82 (Which makes the meat in this recipe come out to be a little over $1 (since I only needed less then a 1/3 of the package). While I was shopping I also checked out organic ground meat and it was over $13 for the same amount!
Turkey is packed with nutrients_ B vitamins, iron and more zinc then chicken. It’s also known as a mood booster which we know every little one can use now and then.
Most of all, I love the flavor of turkey. It’s mild and when served with a piece of cheddar cheese melted between two slices of bread, it’s a perfect protein-packed meal.

    2. Thanks for your article. Another eenemlt is that just being a photographer will involve not only issues in taking award-winning photographs but hardships in getting the best camera suited to your needs and most especially challenges in maintaining the standard of your camera. It is very true and clear for those photography lovers that are in capturing the nature’s captivating scenes the mountains, the actual forests, the actual wild or maybe the seas. Visiting these exciting places undoubtedly requires a dslr camera that can live up to the wild’s nasty setting.
