Meat, Poultry, Fish, Beans, Eggs and Nuts
Choose lean meat, poultry without skin, fish, and dry beans and chickpeas often. These choices are lowest in fat.
One serving is 2-3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry, or fish. 1/2 cup of cooked dry beans, 1 egg, or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter count as 1 ounce of lean meat.
Eat nuts and seeds in moderation, as they are high in fat.
Prepare meats using the following lowfat methods.
- Trim away all the fat you can see.
- Remove skin from poultry.
- Broil, roast, or boil these foods instead of frying them.
