We all know diet and the foods we eat play a large role in our overall health. Healthy foods could potentially save on our health care costs according to recent studies. Consequently, more and more physicians are prescribing a healthy diet including lean meats. In one of the recent studies that included fruits, veggies, and other healthy foods, health care costs could be reduced by more than $100 billion!
Lean meat is a good source of protein with a lower fat content and therefore a lower calorie content. It is well known that poultry and fish are lean meats, but lamb, pork and beef are also good options. According to the USDA, consuming three ounces of lean protein per day is recommended. Did you know three ounces of 90% lean ground beef delivers 22 grams of protein? How about pork tenderloin, loin chop or sirloin roast that provide 23 grams of protein in a three-ounce serving? Don’t count out lamb, either! A three-ounce serving has the most protein at 25 grams. These options all include several vitamins and minerals that are important to our overall health as well.
