Sunday Meal Prep: Slow-Cooker Rosemary Lemon Turkey


I'm game for any meal that involves a slow cooker, because it generally means less dishes, less prep time and less mess!

I grew up having pot roast for dinner pretty much every Sunday, so this is a leaner version of a meal that's close to my heart! I don't know why we only eat turkey at Thanksgiving- it's super lean, it's high in the amino acid tryptophan (aids in better sleep) and also high in the mineral selenium (benefits metabolism). Read more about the benefits of turkey here.

Turkey has a tendency to dry out easily, so thanks to my Grandma's advice I added the white wine which helped to keep the turkey moist, as well as made a delicious gravy! I also brined my turkey in salt and water for about 2 hours before cooking.

I ate one serving for dinner and then put the other 3 in containers for the week.
