    Oh happy day! Summer is nearly here and with it means that nearly every meal my family prepares will be on the grill! While we love grilling up the usual suspects, burgers and franks, I also like to throw on turkey! You heard me foodie friends, turkey is great year round, not just at Thanksgiving.

    We are taking turkey beyond a juicy leg from the Renaissance festival or a tasty turkey burger, instead we are using a turkey breast to make Spicy Honey Grilled Turkey. Grilling turkey has several benefits, the first being it will assist you on keeping that beach bod you’ve been working so hard towards.

    A skinless turkey breast has eight percent more protein than the same size serving of boneless skinless chicken breast or trimmed top loin beefsteak. – Ohio Poultry Association 

    Or at least not becoming any more fluffy than you already are, in my case. Turkey is naturally low in fat and high in protein, providing immune-boosting nutrients like iron, zinc and potassium.

    Turkey is also easy to prepare, like other poultries and sucks up delicious flavor from marinades and rubs easily. Most grocery stores carry a variety of turkey cuts and some are even in pre-packaged portions or pre-marinated.

    So really, why do you reserve turkey for the gobble gobble day? Eat it every day!

    While I love to marinate turkey, during the summer months, I fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to preparing meals, so overnight marinating doesn’t happen frequently. Instead, I use my Spicy Honey rub that adds oodles of flavor and a nice crust without hours of marinating.
