That’s why I recommend cooking several main courses at once, perhaps on a Saturday or Sunday when you may have more time to prepare. Then you can simply reheat these items and make some quick veggie side dishes during the week.
Stores sell lean ground turkey and extra lean ground turkey. The lean ground turkey, which often goes on sale for $3.99 a pound, has 8 grams of fat per serving (depending on the brand) while the extra lean, which never seems to go on sale in my area and costs $5.69 or more a pound, has only 1 gram of fat per serving.
The difference is dramatic, 75 mgs of sodium in a panko serving compared with 430 mgs in the Italian breadcrumbs. And it gets worse.
