See the little pie charts? They tell you the percentage of calories are from fat. Even the 1% ground turkey is still 1/8 fat. That's because meat is muscle, and muscle is protein + fat. You really can't get 100% lean mean without some serious chemical engineering.
|Calorie King has the best database, a nicer interface, doesn't make you log in. |
It doesn't have a search feature. I don't need the search feature or the pie chart, so I'll use it.
I use that amount because that's about how much you'd put on a sloppy joe, or a taco. That's about a third of the calories of lean cooked ground beef. I found a recipe for making it in the pressure cooker. I make the cutlets, and then grind them in my little handy chopper.
For Christmakwanzakah, I got an electric pressure cooker. I LOVE this thing. But anyway.
So I'm not going back to all veggie. In fact, Saturday night is grilling night, and grilled Quorn just isn't the same as a nice juicy chicken breast or steak. But I'm dialing down the amount of meat we're eating, to get my bang for my nutritional buck. If I'm going to eat calories, I want them to be good, healthy calories.
