Healthy Monday: Meat Me Halfway
September 18, 2012 Leave a comment
Here is your Healthy Monday tip, a day late:
The average American’s diet contains too many solid fats, saturated fats and bad cholesterols, which are all found in animal products. Experts therefore recommend limiting total meat intake to two, 3 ounce servings a day or less (3 ounces is about the size and width of a deck of cards, or the palm of your hand).
Aim to eat less meat this week. Have a Meatless Monday, skip sausage and bacon at breakfast, or cut your lunch and dinner portions in half. Remember that you can easily stay full (and cut fat and calories) by filling the space on your plate with fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains.
