protein foods

Purchasing a whole chicken is one of the most cost-effective choices, since both the dark and white meat provide essential nutrients. The former has a higher concentration of iron and zinc, while the latter has a higher concentration of B vitamins. A 4-ounce chicken breast is low in saturated fat and contains 35 grams of high-quality protein (including all nine essential amino acids).
