Three Lean Foods you Should be Having

Get the most out of your meals with these three lean foods. They are packed with protein and have additional health benefits!
Fish and other Seafood
High in protein and healthy fats. Fish contains healthy Omega 3 fats that protect your heart and other important organs.

Best Fish Choice:
  • Cold water fish such as salmon is an amazing protein option. Cook with light coconut oil and garlic with a side of brown rice and broccoli. 
High in protein and low in calories. Eggs are also very versatile, allowing you to fit them in almost any meal.

Egg Idea:
  • Make scrambled eggs and add any vegetables you have in your refrigerator. Chop the vegetables up small and then top with a pinch of low fat cream or shredded cheese. Also great with salmon on top.
Low fat Greek Yogurt
High in protein and probiotics that ward off trouble in the gut.

Greek Yogurt Tips:
  • Top yogurt with fruit and flax 
  • Add your favorite seasoning to the yogurt and use as a dip for veggies. Also known as tzatziki sauce or dip. Below is a link to a recipe I found!

*hint: make it even healthier by adding low or non fat versions of the greek yogurt and sour cream.
