    i've been doing tilapia and i love it but I wanted to switch it up so I don't get tired of it.

    now i'm doing 97% fat free ground turkey and just making patty's and eating them, but holy fuck i can't do it anymore, i almost spit every mouth full out.

    i'm going to do chicken as well, but would it be ok to just drop the turkey and do tilapia and chicken only?

    i bet im just being a pussy huh? i know you have to eat shit you don't like, but im not entering a competition so i figure i would be okay without the turkey... :dunno:

    You're fine, turkey isn't a wondermeat or anything it's just a poultry.

    the chicken breasts have the same nutritional value as the ground turkey youre using. the only thing that will change it, is how you cook it. if you deep fry it in lard its not gonna do you any good. bake or grill it.

    Season everything up real well. Experiment with herbs and spices. You can make the same thing taste 5 different ways with flavorings.

    Cool. With seasoning, what should I watch for? Too much sodium? Anything in particular, or can I essentially use what I want within reason? Ive used Tony's for my tilapia, I like it I am just afraid its got too much sodium, well as much as I put on it anyway.

    haha thanks again guys

    Salt you can always sweat out. Personally I don't watch it too much. Use fresh or dried herbs like oregano, basil, sage, thyme, rosemary and such. Chinese 5 spice is good as well as seasoned salt, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder..etc.

    Squeeze lime and orange on your Tilapia and then some chopped cilantro, add some pepper, a little white wine, cover and bake. Simple and tasty.

    ground turkey sucks dick.

    i made turkey burgers once in my skillet, was like eating a big chunk of meaty feeling water. no flavor but the seasoning.

    i keep it to deli sliced oven roasted turkey breast.

    oh and see if your local grocery has these:
    http://www.gourmetgarden.com/

    makes cooking meals so much faster and easier without having to prep individual ingredients if you're on a time constraint and they last for a while after being opened.

    having shit on hand like that also helps you use your imagination to find what tastes you like instead of making grocery lists for meals that you want to cook later on in the week.

    buffalo tastes a lot like beef, but a bit "sweeter". really good stuff.

    ostrich, dont be a pussy. tastes like chicken
