Turkey breast mince is a lean and healthy alternative to other meat. Its high in protein and rich in the amino acid Tryptophan, which helps produces serotonin and helps regulate your mood and sleep!
My favourite way to get this into your body is making a big batch of turkey burgers and freezing some and take one or two out a week to eat in the day or for dinner!!
On average, I suggest eating meat meals about 3-4 times a week.
Perfect for those…
