Healthy Eating Tip #4 – The Perfect Protein

“In the Healthy Eating Pyramid, red meat occupies the pointy tip to highlight the fact that something about red meat—its particular combination of saturated fats or the potentially cancer-causing compounds that form when red meat is grilled or fried—is connected to a variety of chronic diseases. In this pyramid, the best sources of protein are beans and nuts along with fish, poultry, and eggs. It separates vegetable and animal protein sources and makes the latter optional for people who want to follow a vegetarian diet.”

              Dr. Walter Willett
              Professor of Nutrition, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health

Red meat is associated with chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. That said, substitutes for red meat such as those described above will lead to substantial improvements in your health, thanks in large part to lower saturated fat. To clear up discussions of meat versus vegetarianism, YES you can get all your needed protein without consuming meat. And evidence does not suggest that meat protein is superior to plant protein. Meat is, however, a better source of complete protein. So if you’re a vegetarian, be sure to eat a variety of beans, nuts, grains, and vegetables alike to ensure that you complete your protein intake. Examples of plant protein combinations that complete each other are commonplace in society such as rice and bean, peanut butter and bread, and tofu and rice.


Meat eaters and vegetarians should both keep in mind the importance of eating seafood. Seafood is low in “bad” saturated fats and high in “good” unsaturated fats, especially a type known as omega-3s. Particularly if you eat red meat, a switch to fish will have profound positive effects on your cholesterol, reducing your risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases. Seafood is a major source of two essential omega-3s called DHA and EPA that play an especially important role in the development of brain and eye tissue, as well as reducing cardiovascular disease and improving immune health. In other words, eat seafood! When you select seafood from the market, however, there are important factors to consider. In the section that follows, I have highlighted these considerations. For those who refuse seafood, you can skip out on the next section, but don’t skip out on DHA and EPA. At least take a fish oil supplement to obtain these essential nutrients.



Wise Seafood Selection

Most important to selecting seafood at the market is mercury and omega-3 content. This is particularly important if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Fortunately, choosing seafood with low mercury is not difficult as many guidelines highlight the best species to eat. Unfortunately, guidelines that also specify omega-3 content are harder to come by. In an earlier blog, however, I constructed such guidelines, which can be viewed here. Also, as many fisheries are under extreme pressure due to overfishing, you should try your best to select fish that are caught sustainably. For guidelines on choosing sustainable fish, visit SeaFood Watch.

In Dr. Willett’s quote above, he mentioned the cancer-causing chemicals formed when cooking red meat. For more info on this, see my earlier blog titled "Barbequed Meat: A Health Tip."

  2. Vegetarians/vegans who want to avoid fish products can take plant-based sources of omega-3 and DHA like Nordic Naturals' Algae Omega.

    1. Walmart has vegan DHA that is very competitively priced. I get my EPA from flax seed oil. I totally agree that you don't have to consume fish or seafood to get your complete omega 3 oils.

    helped me cure my HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS . I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX
    VIRUS in 2015, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution,
    so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay.
    So One day I went on line on the Internet to know more clue about the
    Herpes Simplex Virus i came across a review of a lady saying that she got
    her Herpes Simplex Virus cured by A great herbal spell caster Called Dr.
    ezomo. And she also went as far to drop an email address and including Dr.
    Ezomo telephone number and advise anyone to contact Dr. ezomo for any kind
    of help. So i gave a try by contacting him . his email and explain my
    problem to him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me
    instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is
    happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got
    vanished . so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like
    HERPES, HIV, shingles, low sperm count, HPV, Cancer, Hepatitis B, etc this
