3. Breakfast Meats
Bacon and sausage are favorites for many families and they’re a frequent choice for people who follow the very trendy high-protein diets. “However, these meats are high in saturated fat as well as sodium,” Wolk reports. Each single strip of cooked bacon has an average of one gram of fat and 137 milligrams of sodium and a typical sausage patty hits you with 22 grams of fat and 400 milligrams of sodium. If you want to occasionally indulge, “stick to a more lean meat like turkey sausage or turkey bacon,” Wolk advises.
Healthy choice: A Nutrisystem Turkey Sausage & Egg Muffin delivers 14 grams of protein with only five grams of fat and a reasonable 270 milligrams of sodium.
