EXPERT PROFILE

One problem in choosing which proteins to eat is that – if you’re not careful – you can end up eating a lot of fat, too. If

fatty cuts of meat, sausages and ground beef are your go-to proteins, start thinking about what you would be willing to

replace it with. An easy first step is to ditch the ground beef for ground poultry breast – in most recipes, the difference

isn’t that noticeable. When you’re ready to try adding more fish to your diet, start with something familiar – maybe for

you that means prawns or canned tuna. Take a look at your usual meals and find those recipes in which it’s easier to

replace the fattier meats, maybe in a pasta sauce, a wrap, or in tacos. Canned beans are convenient, mild in flavour

and very low in fat – you can make a vegetarian stew, add them to soups, or whirl them in the blender with a little olive

oil and garlic for a healthy dip for raw veggies. Tofu is worth a try, too – it’s got a very mild flavour that works well in

soups and stir-fried dishes, or you can try roasting it.
