Finding a Thanksgiving Turkey

We just moved to a new part of the country, so we have been scouring different grocery stores in search of an SCD-legal turkey for Thanksgiving. We finally found three turkeys that have no additives other than water and salt, and I wanted to share them with you to help make the turkey search easier!

Costco has Foster Farms turkeys for 89 cents per pound - this was the best buy we found!

Sprout's Farmers Market has their store brand turkey for $1.29 per pound this week.

At several local grocery stores we found the Red Bird brand turkeys for about $1.99 per pound.

I hope this helps you out! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and be sure to check our Holiday Recipes page for lots of yummy Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes.

I'm not completely SCD 100%, but do try to follow it with my celiac. I look at their recommendations for chicken, but never thought to ask about turkey! What are some of the additives that they add to turkey? Would any of these be gluten? Thanks so much!

Hi Betty,
Sorry this is late, but I wanted to let you know that additives to avoid in any meat are: broth or natural flavorings. They seem to be in a lot of different brands of meat, so check carefully before buying!

Sprouts Farmer's Market is the best! It's easy to find legal chicken and turkey, and occasionally they have bison. Recently I started purchasing grass fed beef there as well.
