Why It's a Must Have: 98% fat free ground turkey serves up 26 grams of protein per four ounce serving. And, at only 130 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving, this low cholesterol meat is a much leaner alternative to regular ground beef, significantly reducing your intake of calories and artery clogging saturated fat, Palinski says.

Budget Bonus: Love turkey burgers? Instead of purchasing pre-made patties, save money by buying ground turkey and making your own, or even better, grind your own white meat turkey, recommends Palinski.

Recipes to Try:

Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs in Spicy Tomato Sauce

Mom’s Turkey Meatloaf
