It is time to repurpose that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. There is usually a lot left over, and with all of the time you have invested in defrosting and cooking that turkey, you certainly don’t want the leftovers to go to waste! An easy way to boost colon health over the holidays is to combine the leftover turkey with vegetables and rice and make a delicious, hearty soup.
According to the World Health Organization, diets high in processed meats and red meats have been linked to an increased risk of colorectal cancer. Lean white meat like turkey is a healthier choice for soup. Additionally, turkey is high in protein and low in fat. Magnesium and selenium — both of which are found in turkey, rice and veggies — have been shown to lower the risk of colon cancer. And the rice and veggies in this soup also have fiber, which helps remove waste and toxins from your body.
