Buy Less-Processed Meats
The more the butcher does for you, the more you pay for it, Sara says. "The ideal scenario would be to buy whole chickens and large pieces of meat and cut up and trim them yourself, but most people don't have those skills," Sara says. "So, buy chicken thighs on the bone instead of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Skin, which is really fat, and bones contribute flavor and can be removed after you cook the chicken."
