As you ready your holiday turkey for roasting, do you throw away or feed your pet the turkey giblets that usually come tucked inside the bird?
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.
When it comes to thickening gravy, most people are missing the, uh, boat entirely!
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.
Bone marrow was an important sacred food for the preindustrialized Indian cultures living in the Rocky Mountain range far into the Canadian North during the early 1900’s.
Dr. Weston A . Price studied these cultures firsthand and documented in his masterpiece Nutrition and Physical Degeneration that bone marrow was provided as a special dietary ration for growing children and also served as a substitute for milk when necessary.
Bone marrow is not a typical food in the Western diet, but it should be. It is not only one of the most delicious of all the sacred foods, it’s also one of the most inexpensive!
Is your budget crunched and your time short when it comes to preparing healthy meals for yourself and your family?
You’re not alone. The time/budget challenge is something almost everyone has to come to grips with at some point and figuring out how to make it all work within the context of a very busy family isn’t easy.
Today’s video discusses and demonstrates a few ideas for making this juggling act just a bit more streamlined, particularly as we approach the start of a New Year with health goals and new routines becoming established on a day to day basis.
