Pot roast

Even the trimmed, lean version of this popular holiday meat contains 7 grams of saturated fat. One 3-ounce serving of traditional beef pot roast has 280 calories and 20 grams of total fat. But think about how many ounces you're actually adding to your plate, plus the calories from gravy. Much more!

White-meat turkey or even lean beef tenderloin is healthier for your heart. Our herb-roasted turkey recipe has only 180 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving.
