What is a healthy turkey lunch recipe?

Here is my favorite:

Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich

Ingredients:

Homestyle turkey breast*
Cranberry sauce
Light mayonnaise
Lettuce
Whole wheat roll

Directions:

Slice roll horizontally. Place turkey on one half. Top with cranberry sauce, light mayonnaise, and lettuce. Cover with the other half of the roll.

Enjoy!

*(Cook a turkey breast for dinner on Sunday. The extra makes for lunches that taste like Thanksgiving leftovers.)

A turkey salad is a good example of a balanced lunch. Here's a yummy recipe: Marinate two turkey breasts, skinned and sliced. Combine 1 tablespoon of lime juice, 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 seeded, finely chopped green chili pepper, 1 tablespoon of fresh coriander finely chopped, 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce. Pour over turkey and chill for a few hours. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a wok, then add turkey with the marinade; stir-fry for about 8 minutes. Serve over a chopped kiwi fruit. This dish has 304 calories and 6.7 grams of fat.
