Pork

If you know the right cuts―tenderloin, boneless loin chops, even center-cut bacon―pork rivals lean poultry as a healthy choice for complete protein. Pork tenderloin is as lean as a skinless chicken breast, and any cuts from the loin (think pork chops and pork roast) are even leaner than a skinless chicken thigh. Pork steaks or roasts from the leg (a.k.a. fresh ham) are also great choices. Pork is also an excellent source of B vitamins such as niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, and B-6 (pyridoxine).
