Nutritionally, turkey is a good source of B vitamins such as niacin (Vitamin B3) and pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), which your body needs for energy. For instance, 100g of turkey (about two thick slices) gives you almost 70 per cent of your reference daily intake (RDI) for niacin, and 30 per cent of your RDI for pyridoxine, according to Healthline.

Cranberry Sauce or Cranberry Juice

Besides adding tartness to counter the rich gravy, cranberries are a natural infection fighter. It is most famously known to fend off urinary tract infections, thanks to its polyphenols, said Professor Jeffrey Blumberg, who led a review of 150 published studies on the fruit at Tufts University. But not just any polyphenols (which are also found in other berries and fruits), cranberries contain a subtype known as A-type proanthocyanidin. It is this polyphenol’s anti-adhesive capacity that helps clear and protect against urinary tract infection, said Prof Blumberg. Cranberries are also known to stave off plague formation in the arteries, and limit blood pressure and cholesterol – making the berries a cardiovascular ally.

SALMON

Delicious raw or cooked (or even partially cooked as in the smoked variety), salmon is a winner. And you don't have to buy expensive wild salmon to reap its benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). A 100g serving of farmed salmon provides 2.3g of omega-3 fatty acids, slightly less than the 2.6g wild salmon offers, wrote registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator Franziska Spritzler on Healthline.com.
