Health Tip: Choose Heart-Healthy Proteins

(HealthDay News) -- Heart-healthy fish, poultry and meat provide body-fueling protein without all the unhealthy fat.

The American Heart Association recommends these heart-healthy choices:

  • Choose skinless, trimmed cuts of meat, and limit totals to 6 ounces or less per day.

  • Eat at least two servings each week of grilled or baked fish, particularly oily fish.

  • Season meat with low-sodium, low-fat products, such as herbs or spices.

  • Use meatless proteins in entrees, salads or soups. Examples include beans, lentils, peas or tofu.
