Is it true that eating turkey meat can make you tired?

User Avatar
The theory that turkey makes you sleepy stems from the fact that turkey contains an amino acid called tryptophan. Our bodies use tryptophan to produce the vitamin B3 or niacin, which is essential to creating serotonin, a neurotransmitter thought to contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness. Serotonin is also the precursor to the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin. The truth is that turkey doesn’t contain any more tryptophan than many other meats, and it even contains slightly less than most cheeses. That means it’s unfair to blame your post-dinner coma on turkey alone. So, why do we specifically associate Thanksgiving dinner with feeling sleepy? Probably because we’re eating many foods high in tryptophan during the course of the evening, and that tryptophan is amplified by the carbs from rolls, potatoes, and other savory starches. Not to mention the fact that overeating gives the body more digestive work to do, thus using more energy.

How long does it take to cook a 23 pound turkey in an oven?

User Avatar
The rule of thumb for roasting an unstuffed turkey is to cook it for 15 minutes per pound at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. So for a 23 lb. turkey, you should expect it to cook for about 5 hours and 45 minutes. If it doesn't have a pop-up timer, start checking the temperature about and hour before your determined time is up and check it every 20 minutes until the temperature is 165 degrees F in the thickest areas of the thigh and breast.

Both The above is true of domesticated turkeys, however, if you hunt wild turkeys, you can only shoot the males. The females are left alone because they are the egg layers and produce and care for the young turkeys.
