Yes, turkey is good, lean protein, and on a sandwich with whole-grain bread, lettuce, tomato, and other veggies, it isn’t a bad lunch choice. One culprit here is sodium; a two-ounce serving of some brands has as much as 450 grams of sodium, nearly one-third the daily limit recommended by the American Heart Association.
