Protein Power

September 11, 2019

Did you know that we don’t have a food group called “Meats” anymore? The group is called “Proteins.” That’s because there are so many other delicious, healthy foods that we can enjoy in place of meats. And most of them cost less! Enjoy poultry, fish, eggs, and nuts. Beans, like kidney beans, navy beans, black beans, chickpeas, and lentils, are great protein foods, too. Eat them in soups or salads, or with whole grains like whole-grain pasta, brown rice, or tortillas. Enjoy a meatless dinner one to three times a week to eat healthy and save money.
