The health promoting aspects of making mineral rich stock with the leftover bones of the holiday turkey cannot be overestimated and so I absolutely wanted to include it in the final Turkey Tips segment I filmed for Gayle Guyardo, anchor of the NBC News Channel 8 Today television show. This tip which aired yesterday was a challenge to film as I only had one minute to talk about the benefits of stock and also show how to make it!

The turkey giblets can provide concentrated nutrition to your holiday meal, so this year, use them instead of toss them!
In this fourth of the five “Turkey Tips” I filmed as a series for the NBC News Channel 8 Today television show anchored by Gayle Guyardo, I show you how to very simply incorporate those giblets into your holiday meal even if you are not the best of cooks.
Cornstarch is the most common gravy thickener, but this is a terrible choice as it is most likely made from unlabeled genetically modified corn unless you make the effort to buy organic. GM corn has been linked to organ failure and tumors in animals. Do you really want this stuff to be included with your holiday meal?
Even if organic, cornstarch is basically devoid of any nutrition or flavor and not worth the price.
Canned evaporated milk is one of the most health robbing processed foods that is regularly part of Holiday meal preparation and it can so easily be avoided!
Yesterday, the News Channel 8 Today Show with anchor Gayle Guyardo, an NBC affiliate station in Tampa, Florida, aired my very first cooking clip.
The 5 clips I filmed for the show are airing each weekday – one each day – through Thanksgiving.
This “Turkey Tips” series shows simple things you can do while preparing your Thanksgiving meal to make it more enjoyable, tasty, and - of course – nutritious!
