7. Processed Meat
Processed foods such as hotdogs, bacon and sausages should be avoided due to their low nutritional content and high sodium content. These products are made from fatty cuts of pork or beef and are not considered healthy for regular consumption. Eating these types of food in moderation may not be a problem, but it is best to avoid them where possible in favour of healthier, more nutritious foods.
If you must consume processed meats, it is important to choose minimally processed options that are made from lean meats such as chicken or turkey. These meats are lower in saturated fat and contain fewer preservatives and additives than other processed meats. Furthermore, lean poultry meats are a much better source of protein than their processed counterparts. When selecting processed meats, it is important to read the ingredient list and nutrition label to ensure that you are making a healthy choice.
