New at the grocery stores
As a smart shopper, maybe you’ve started to notice the nutrition labels on cuts of meat at the grocery store. That might be because the U.S. Department of Agriculture now requires this information on all meats. This process started on March 1 and includes information like calories, serving size, cholesterol and saturated fat content posted on labels for ground beef, pork, chicken and other meats.
According to Meatless Monday, “Consumers can use this new information to comparison shop between meat products and protein sources that tend to be lower in calories and saturated fat, like lentils, brown rice and tempeh.”
Noteworthy food news
If you’ve been following the news, it’s likely you’ve seen the report from a recent study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, noting that red meat is associated with an increased risk of total, cardiovascular and cancer mortality.
Participating in Meatless Monday -- and cutting meat from your meals even one day a week -- is a great way to make healthier food choices. You can still get your fill of tasty meals -- just think about choosing healthier protein sources in place of red meat for recipes. Fish, poultry, nuts, whole grains, legumes and low-fat dairy are all great sources.
