4. Eat less sausage and more dairy and fish products
Dairy products such as yoghurt, quark and cheese are rich in protein and calcium. These products should therefore be consumed daily. Fish should be eaten once or twice a week. Make sure to buy products that have an officially recognised sustainable origin. Fish contains the healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as iodine and selenium. Meat should be consumed less. Although red meat in particular is an important source of protein and B vitamins, it is not exactly considered risk-free, especially in large quantities. The DGE recommends eating no more than 300 to 600 grams of sausage or meat per week.
5. Fats should be chosen consciously
If possible, use only vegetable oils such as rapeseed oil. Although vegetable oil also provides many calories, it contains important fatty acids. Hidden fats should be avoided as much as possible. The latter are often found in sausages, sweets, convenience products and fast food.
