Meat

The healthiest and tastiest meat is braised or stewed at moderate heat in some sort of sauce or broth; this is the way our ancestors cooked most of their meat. Buy the best-quality meat you can afford, ideally from pastured, free-range animals whose meat contains more nutrients and healthier fats than corn-fed animals reared in cramped conditions. You can offset the higher cost by buying smaller portions and reducing your overall meat intake.
