Good “Bad” Foods
Good “Bad” Foods

How about a thick, juicy steak to satisfy your appetite?

Worried it’s not GOOD for you…pshaw!

Woman’s Day came up with five “bad” foods that are actually good for you:

Steak  Red meat got a bad rep because it’s high fat, but if you choose the right cut of lean beef, like top sirloin, you’ve got a steak packed with protein, iron, B-12, and zinc.  Try to get grass-fed beef, which is the lowest in fat.

Potatoes  The anti-carb movement basically wrecked potatoes for everybody…but there’s nothing bad about them if you watch your serving size, and prepare them right.  They have a ton of nutrients (especially the skins).

Canned Vegetables  You always hear that canned vegetables have lost all their vitamins, so don’t bother with them.  Actually, studies show that frozen and canned vegetables are just as healthy as fresh ones and they’re WAY cheaper.  (FYI:  Jen is a frozen proponent and an astute Lite Rock listener called to confirm that frozen vegetables are healthier, because they freeze the good stuff in…you guys are SO smart!  ~Dave)

Eggs  Everybody blames eggs for heart disease and bad cholesterol but eggs are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and protein.  Research found that having one egg a day doesn’t hurt you.

Pizza  Yes…pizza!  If you do it right, you have a powerhouse of whole grains, veggies, and protein-rich dairy.  Start with whole wheat crust, load it with vegetable toppings, use low-fat mozzarella, and you’re set.

Yum!
