Try to keep the daily mix of what you eat to 80% plant matter and 20% meat, dairy, and seafood.

Make Every Bite of Real Meat Count

When eating less meat, every single bite needs to hold its own.

Instead of a chicken breast, try a smaller Italian turkey sausage, sautéed until crisp over a spinach salad. Or cured pork with roasted vegetables and grains, pasta and salads. Bone broth in mushroom Bourguignon supplies a savory character without adding any actual meat.
