Healthy Recipes: Turkey Italian Wedding Soup
Although extremely satisfying, this week’s soup is much leaner than traditional Wedding Soup recipes. Combining ground turkey breast with lean ground beef ensures that the meatballs stay moist, while eliminating excess fat. The substitution also helps you help your family reduce their red meat intake, since experts note an increased risk for colorectal cancer when red meat is eaten in excess of 18 ounces per week.
