Protein Options

Meat such as chicken, beef and pork are excellent sources of protein and contain other vital nutrients such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. There are many cuts of meat that are considered lean and offer all of the health benefits without the fat. Seafood is another healthy way to get your protein. Certain varieties of fish contain omega-3 fatty acids, which provide additional health benefits. To learn more on meat and seafood nutrition, click to the links below.

Beef

Did you know there are 29 cuts of beef that meet the government labeling guidelines for lean? Read the guidelines here. Many are cuts you are probably already eating, such as flank steak, T-Bone steak, and sirloin steak.

Pork

Through changes in feeding and breeding techniques, pork producers have responded to consumer demand for leaner pork. Today’s common cuts of pork are 16% leaner and has 27% less saturated fat as compared to 1991. Many cuts of pork are as lean as skinless chicken.​

Chicken

​Currently, the RDA for protein is 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight. A 4oz chicken breast provides 32 grams of high-quality protein, or about half the daily requirement for a 150lb person.

Seafood

​Fish that have more fat, such as mackerel, swordfish, bluefish and trout, are recommended for their omega-3 fatty acids, which is "good fat" because it is unsaturated.
