Red meat is commonly regarded as beef, pork and lamband
all can be part of a healthy heart diet providing the meat is
extremely lean. Many butchers and supermarkets provide
fully trimmed raw meat, but always check the labels (see
pages 30-31) on packs of meat. Casseroles and stews can
be cooked in advance, cooled and any fat skimmed from the
surface to ensure that the dish is very low in fat. Only eat
small amounts of the best, leanest meat and surround with
plenty of vegetables, beans and starchy carbohydrate foods
such as potatoes, pasta, rice and bread.
