the tryptophan isn't what makes you tired. it's the metric ton of carbs you shove down your throat.

I like turkeys.

They're delicious.

Sometimes a little dry, though.

You can't just shove it in.

i'd have to say, it's not either of those making you tired.

it's the cleaning, cooking, and panicing you do before you eat.

That's right.

"People, don't let this happen to you! Get the facts! The truth is tryptophan, a hormone found in turkey, acts like a tranquilizer and can be a silent killer behind the wheel. So, the next time you have to drive, have a tuna sandwich instead of turkey."

Cook them upside down from the typical manner, meaning breast down.

Then the dark meat isn't so greasy and the breast isn't so dry. It's not a pretty turkey....but it's good.

Don't say that too loudly--you wouldn't want to spoil people's "fun facts to share at parties" time.

Fun is, after all, more important than fact.

Turkey doesn't have any more triptophan in it than any other meat.

tryptophan does make you tired. Tryptophan is the precursor to serotonin. In humans serotonin is produced continually, and in excess, as long as the precursor is available. Serotonin makes you tired.

It's not the tryptophan that makes people sleepy, it's the boring relatives.

lol :)

tryptophan (FTFYsubby) is an amino acid, and essential in our diets because humans lack the biochemical pathway for synthesising it :)

there's your correct fun fact for the day

/damnit it happens to be on wikipedia as well
//don't look so clever any more :(
///but at least i gots teh slashies!

for those who think tryptophan is the reason you feel sleepy
after eating turkey...
