These are some simple foods that you can incorporate into your diet to help with things like breast cancer, heart disease, wrinkles, cancer and cholesterol. Some you already probably incorporate into your diet already but it is important to understand that the more raw and less cooked you eat them in is the healthiest for you and will help with the above conditions better. For instance, raw vegetables are best – but if you must cook steaming is the best way to cook, followed by blanching, boiling and placing into foil and baking are the best options. Nuts should never be purchased in snack isle or near registers – only get them in the baking isle. These can be found cooked or raw (some nuts are not edible in raw form) but they will not have added sodium and are much healthier for you. One final note is about frozen berries and vegetables – there is not a lot of difference in frozen berries and vegetables because mostly they are flash frozen which will allow them to retain their good properties. Just remember to look for things like added sugar or sodium (like that bag of frozen corn saturated with butter and salt that you throw into a microwave and serve right from the bag).

Frozen Turkey??? Here’s A Fix!
Did you forget to unthaw your turkey?
It’s perfectly safe to cook a frozen turkey. Here’s how- Remember it takes about 50% longer to cook a frozen vs. a thawed turkey so make sure you don’t buy one over 18 lbs. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Unwrap the turkey and bake in the oven for one hour. Remove the turkey and brush with olive oil and season with poultry seasoning. Place turkey back in the oven for two more hours. Then remove turkey again and pull out bag of giblets. The bag should be soft at this point and no longer frozen. This is the hardest part but you have to do it because you don’t want the bag to melt or you won’t be able to eat the turkey. After you remove the plastic bag of giblets continue roasting the turkey until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. A 12 lb frozen turkey usually takes about 4 ½ – 5 hours to roast. Use an instant read thermometer not the pop up button to determine how done it is.
Your turkey is done and problem solved!
PS: As noted by a comment… this technique should also work with a chicken… and a ham!
