Cynthia Sass: I’m Cynthia Sass Prevention’s Nutrition Director in Grocery Guru and I’m at King Supermarket. If you are healthy eater you probably are the shopping for boneless, skinless chicken breast and that’s great. But even with the not category there are few more options in the market these days including organic and natural chicken. Now, organic is USDA certified so by law it has to meat certain standards, they are no hormones or antibiotic to use. The chickens are fed in all vegetarian diet and they treated humanly then there are all natural. There is no standard definition for all naturals; you have to read the level to find out what it means for that company. Now they’re both better for us and better for the environment but they can be more expensive from a dollar more of pound to up to double. But no matter what chicken you buy the most important thing to remember is the portion size. For one serving for an individual, a serving is three ounces which is about the size of the deck of cards or about the size of my palm. I’m Cynthia Sass, Prevention’s Grocery Guru.
