Meats & Beans
Always look for leaner meats and even ask the butcher to trim the excess fat for you. If you buy poultry, buy white meat whenever possible as it is lower in fat. Canned fish, such as tuna and salmon - only the kind packed in water - is a good option if you need quick protein for a snack or recipe. Fresh or dried beans are best, but you can also benefit from canned and frozen, prepared without extra fats or butters.
