Health Tip: Choosing Healthier Poultry

Avoid eating the skin

(HealthDay News) -- Poultry is a great source of protein, but you still have to choose healthier cuts and prepare it properly.

The American Academy of Family Physicians advises:

  • Opt for skinless poultry, and stir-fry or pan-broil it.
  • Roast, bake or broil poultry over frying.
  • Skip butter or margarine and use a cooking spray in a nonstick pan.
  • Trim fat and pull off skin before cooking.
  • Opt for breasts, which are protein-rich but low in fat.
  • Choose chicken over goose or duck, which are higher in fat.
