Better choice: Sirloin burger
Why? : Turkey burgers, especially sold at restaurants - are often made with dark turkey meat and skin, making them far from low-fat. A better choice would be a sirloin burger made from 90% or leaner ground beef that provides 20 grams of protein. Just be smart when it comes to toppers - cheese and sauces stack on the fat and sodium.
Pretzels vs. Almonds
Better choice: Almonds
Why?: True, pretzels have gained popularity as a virtually fat free snack, but almonds provide the protein, fiber and the good mono-unsaturated fats that will help you feeling fuller longer. Plus, salty, high carb pretzels often leave you feeling more hungry and thirsty.
1/2 cup of regular full fat ice cream vs 3 scoops of sorbet
Better choice: 1/2 cup of ice cream!
Why?: Beat a sweet craving by choosing a sensible serving size of ice cream. Sorbets often contain twice the sugar as ice cream without any of the calcium & protein ice cream provides. Yay!
