To meat, or not to meat. That surely is the question that plagues meat lovers today. But fret not, you die-hard carnivore! You read right, with the world moving towards all things healthy, here’s a small tip to enjoy your juicy succulent meat just the way you like it. Go in for lean cuts over fatty ones to keep those calories at bay. Read on to know healthier options for your daily fare.
Salmon – Good news, seafood freaks. You’d obviously be aware of the fact that salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin B12. As it’s powered by omega-3, it decreases the risk of cardiac ailments by reducing inflammation. But did you know that salmon helps in building immunity? Salmon has a brain-booster and heart-helper, this superfood even helps you lose pounds. Just twice a week should do, to put you on the road to a healthy expressway.
Tuna – Who’s up for sushi now? Or rather, who isn’t! This heart-friendly saltwater fish has steadily made its way to most meat-eating homes and is almost a mandatory element in sushi recipes. Loaded with Vitamin A, B6 and B12, tuna helps in strengthening bones and lowering blood pressure. This nutrient-rich source of protein is specifically helpful for growing children, pregnant and lactating women.
Chicken – No day must pass by without your dose of chicken, you say? Excellent! You’re doing your body a great favour. Chicken is ideal for a healthy diet as it is loaded with low fat protein with just 3.6 grams of fat in a 100-gram serving. You could be on any of those newly-fangled diets that half the world is on – paleo or even keto. Chicken has been stamped and approved for both, considering the fact that it’s high in protein and relatively low in fat.
Lamb & Mutton – Contrary to popular opinion, lamb is nutritious as well as healthy. Chew on these facts. Up to 40 percent of the fat in lamb is monounsaturated…yup, the one that’s found in olive oil. As per the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) definition, lamb indicates lean meat. It has fewer than 10 grams of fat and 3.5 ounces of cholesterol per 100 grams.
So what would your dinner menu be like? Something exotic from the Fipola stable like Norwegian salmon or dry tuna crumbs to whip up a delicious casserole, or maybe a plucky chicken lollipop or lamb kebab, Masterchef style?
