Ground turkey vs ground beef?
So I was at the store reading the nutritional labels- say both the turkey and the beef have the same fat content (7%), and the calorie count is the same. Saturated fat- surprising to me- almost the same, a bit more for the beef. I would have guessed the turkey is better for you than the beef, but the numbers are about the same. Am I missing something?
I don't think I asked my question very clearly! I prefer the 7% turkey; the breast-only is too dry for me. If you're going to get meat with 7% fat, is there any benefit to getting turkey vs the beef?
(If not, I'd go with beef- even if it is the extra-lean kind- more flavor! Just thought turkey was "healthier".)
I wonder if you grabbed the ground turkey BREAST you would see what you want to see...
compared to whatever % of beef + fat you are looking at...
