Cooking Light is working with the Partnership for a Healthier America and USDA’s MyPlate to give anyone looking for healthier options access to thousands of recipes that will help them create healthy, tasty plates.

Getting enough protein is an essential part of healthy eating. MyPlate recommends choosing lean meats and ground beef that are at least 90% lean. Trimming or draining fat from meat and removing skin from poultry is also a great way to cut fat and calories.
