Easy Recipes for Leftover Turkey

Do you ever get so busy that even the thought of cooking is enough to push you over the edge? Eating healthy may be important to you but sometimes there's just no time. During the holidays, we make the time to roast a yummy turkey along with all those festive side-dishes. When the meal is over, you're left with more turkey than you know what to do with.

What if we leveraged those leftovers and turned them into easy "grab-and-go" meals? This not only will give you back time that would have been spent in the kitchen, but it will also provide you with some ready-made, healthy food choices for when you are too busy to bother.
