meat, poultry and fish

The American Heart Association recommends up to 6 ounces of meat, poultry and fish per day. You should choose trimmed lean meats and poultry without the skin and have at least two servings of baked or grilled fish each week. “Oily fish” like salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fats that your body doesn’t make but needs to function properly.
