Why It's a Must Have: This ‘other white meat’ can be a surprising source of lean protein, iron and B vitamins, says Cooper. A satisfying, non-chicken alternative to red meat, some lean cuts (such as tenderloin) actually contain less fat (122 calories, 3 grams for 3 ounces) than chicken.
Budget Bonus: “Pork is generally priced lower than equivalent cuts of chicken and meat,” Cooper says. “Just make sure what you are paying for in your cut is protein, not fat -- if not, it's not a bargain!”
