When it’s your turn to cook "the bird," try this healthier turkey idea:

Turkey Recipe:
13 oz. All Natural Mrs. Braggs Liquid Aminos (like a soy sauce)
12 cloves of garlic (blend, puree)
15 sprays of "I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter"
5 tsp. Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic
Pam cooking spray
1 Reynolds oven bag, turkey size
3 tbsp. of whole-wheat flour

Take the turkey out of the bag, rinse the turkey very well, and thaw. Remove the bag containing all the turkey parts from inside the turkey. Cut off any visible fat, especially around the tail. Using a knife, poke holes all around the turkey. Spread the garlic around the turkey, especially in the holes you’ve poked, then squirt the Braggs around the turkey. Turn the turkey over, bring up the wings, and place some garlic inside the wings. Lastly, take the butter and Mrs. Dash and spread them evenly all over the turkey.

Spray Pam inside the Reynolds bag and toss three tbsp. of flour in the bag. Next, close the bag and shake until the flour is evenly spread inside the bag. Finally, insert the turkey in the bag, place it in a large cooking pan, and cook at 350 degrees for 3 1/2 hours for a 23-pound turkey (cook longer for a larger bird).
