Have some sodium with that turkey alternative
Take a look at this chart offered up by the American Dietetic Assn. The first thing that pops out is the sodium content. The word "wow" comes to mind. Field Roast Celebration? 710 milligrams per serving. The always adorable Tofurky? (It's a fun word, admit it.) 510 milligrams.
There's also a comparison to the more traditional turkey -- you know, the kind made from a turkey -- but that's more for idle curiosity. Nutrition info in such decisions tends to be beside the point.
One more fact: A serving of turkey breast without skin has only 52 milligrams of sodium.
