How can I get the most nutrition from proteins?

Meat and other protein-rich foods such as fish, poultry, meat, eggs, cheese, and tofu are good sources of iron, zinc, and B vitamins. To get the most good from these foods:
  • Eat fish more often.
  • Choose lean cuts of meat and trim excess fat from poultry -- and keep servings about the size of a deck of cards.
  • Choose fat-free or low-fat cheese.
  • Instead of frying, bake, broil, or roast meats.
