  • Ground Turkey Alternative

    I’ve tried it....and it’s by far, the most disgusting thing I’ve ever smelled and consumed. It’s been seasoned every way you can find, and the stuff is just unpalatable; I say this loving turkey bacon. I went to ground turkey because I started seeing things about cancer and processed red meat consumption.

    Before I was eating 1lb of lean GB a week (a little with my breakfast) but decided to try an alternative because of the information I was reading. Im hoping for a suggestion for an alternative to GB besides ground turkey. Or are my concerns about GB minor and shouldn’t be an issue?
    thanks!!

    I'm not concerned about eating ground beef, but you can also eat ground chicken, and you can try various levels of fat in the ground turkey. Ground turkey that is 99/1 is tough to consider palatable food, but it improves as the fat content goes up.

    Or you can eat meat not ground, eggs/egg whites, greek yogurt, a protein shake. The world is your protein oyster. :-)

      Have you tried TVP? Textured vegetable protein is pretty good stuff.

      I'm not sure what's not happy about your ground turkey. It's pretty good stuff. I wonder if there's something off with what you bought.

      I think it's good to have alternatives to things so you can make choices. But ground beef is still pretty good.

        I personally rely on a protein isolate mixed with bcaas and calculated intake of livers, mostly chicken, and few other organs, which physically amount to small quantities but supply sufficient doses of vitamins/minerals, for my protein/meat specific nutrition needs. Hearts and liver are very tasty, testicles and brains are fine too, stomachs are a bit hard and chewy I dont recommend them. If you want to eat meat I recommend ribs from an oven(the only cheap meat, steak and lamb is expensive here, that i like a lot) or pork is fine too(not worse than the overrated steaks).
        But I love taste wise raw steak meat the most, the rawer the nicer.(but its very expensive and unsustainable for eating for performance).

          Id recommend trying extra firm tofu, and frying it in a non stick pan with some olive oil - itll take on any flavours you throw in it (is i use taco seasoning). Not as much protein as ground beef or chicken, but its worth looking into. I personally was not a fan of tofu until i started doing things like this and experimenting further.

          (look up Tofu Scramble to get an idea)

            Honestly the cancer issue is in a bit of contention recently. Even if you do distrust the recent research that said that there's very weak evidence, the evidence that they cite is the difference between a baseline cancer occurance (0.5%) increasing due to red meat to 0.6% chance of cancer. In Asian cohorts, there's lower rates or no difference found between people who eat red meat and those that don't.

            Mostly, just go with what tastes good and fits with your diet. If you're keeping active and not eating in excess, you have very little to worry about.

              Wow, thanks for all the alternative choices everybody. Didn’t expect this much response! And I ended up going with GB, I like the taste too much and I’m not big on non meat protein alternatives (they’re okay). Thanks again, this is why this community is so damn cool.
