Losing weight after the Holidays

Chicken

Best to Buy

Fresh chicken should have no detectable odor; the flesh should feel firm, and the surface should not feel slick. Check the “sell by” date on the package, which indicates the last day the chicken should be offered for sale.

Prep & Store

Wash chicken thoroughly in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Refrigerate for up to two days.

Chicken should always be cooked until well done at 165°F (74°C) and no longer pink inside.

Nutrition Notes

Chicken is an excellent source of selenium, niacin, and vitamin B6 and a good source of zinc.

    Organic meats are also part of a healthy diet. The only organic meat of any kind Acme carries, (at very few stores) is the Empire Organic Chicken/turkey. “All natural” can be anything these days. Even Target has a selection of Organic meats, so why can’t Acme?
    Or at least bring back the Wild Harvest chicken, and drop that Perdue Harvestland stuff. Thanks!

    However, due to reasons that may involve health restrictions, lifestyle habits
    or diet purposes, some people would find that the diet alone cannot
    provide all their daily vitamin needs. The trouble starts when people begin to compromise good
    health in favor of rich tastes. Remember, natural doesn’t
    mean anything if it isn’t healthy.
