Your Dinner Plan to Eat Clean for a Week (Page 8)

7. Cut Back on Saturated Fat

Saturated fat is found in meat and full-fat dairy products. You don’t have to avoid it completely, but cutting back on saturated fat is easy. Opt for low-fat dairy products and cook with extra-virgin olive oil instead of butter. Replace some of the meat in your diet with seafood. Shrimp and wild salmon are both good choices for weeknights. They cook quickly and salmon offers omega-3s, which are good for your heart and may help improve your mood.
