    What does that mean?

    I eat well but I don't know if the meat I eat is lean. For example are all chicken breasts considered lean meat or is it only certain ones?

    Are lean meats and none lean meats to do with certain cuts of meat? For example chicken breast/thigh/drumstick etc OR are some brands more lean than others?

    Here's a nice list for you! Chicken is definitely a lean meat, and so is fish!

    That list awesome!

    I have been daft in my shopping habits I see icon_razz.gif

    I used to pay more for fish and meat thinking the more expensive it was the more lean it was lol.

    Where are you getting your turkey from? I love turkey but the only cheap turkey I see is that 80% turkey thing lol.

    I mainly just eat fish and chicken.

    we usually buy 5-10 whole birds a year and put them in the freezer. thaw one at a time; in a large pot cook it over night with seasonings and the broth from the last batch. de-bone it in the morning. give the skin and fat to the dogs.

    actually not that low cost: produces more bones than meat.

    Not a concern for most young people, but I have high cholesterol and it seems like the lean and healthy food list items are often high in cholesterol. It's like a no win.

    Not sure what to do with that last list if it doesn't break it down into good vs bad cholesterol...

    Sainsburys sell Bernard Matthews cooked turkey, two packs for £3. They have 4 different flavours.

    pork tenderloin is my favorite, fresh from a butcher, not the supermarket packaged stuff filled with water, flavors and preservatives
