Select Healthy Protein Sources

Select healthy protein sources.

  •  Keep it simple and start with the basic protein sources: lean meat/fish/poultry. Avoid processed options and instead start with the real deal. Use spices or marinades and healthy preparation methods. Crock pots are a big help for busy people and foods are tender, moist, and easy to eat.
  • Beans or legumes are another good protein source. If you use canned beans to save time, choose organic to avoid pesticide residues and additives like salt.
  • Another option is to build your meal with protein-packed low-fat dairy—milk, cottage cheese, yogurt.
