Pork: The Other White Meat
Pork really is the other white meat. Just like any meat, the key is leanness. Here are some tips:
• Choose cuts of pork that come from the loin – including chops and roasts – and 96% lean ground pork, which are the leanest cuts of pork available.
• In addition to protein, look for foods high in fiber like fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains to help keep you fuller.
• Ham It Up - What’s the key to long-term dieting success? Finding healthy foods that taste great and make you feel fuller, longer. Yet, only 30% are aware that pork can increase the feeling of fullness.
• Meat-Myth Busters - Reducing fat is essential to healthy eating. Too bad that nearly half of Americans (46%) don’t know that pork tenderloin is as lean as a skinless chicken breast, and 23% mistakenly think it is fattier than chicken.
• Swine Sans Salt - There’s no rule that diets can’t be delicious. Cut out the salt without forgoing flavor. Only a third (33%) of Americans know that fresh pork is low in sodium. Its versatile cuts pair well with a variety of flavors year round.
