Beef Up Your Health!

Today, we are lucky to have choices in what we eat, but sometimes it becomes overwhelming! Fortunately, you can be confident in choosing any type of beef as a main source of protein. Not only does it taste great, but it’s good for you, too! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the kids love it.

Lean Beef as a Part of a Heart Healthy Diet

You may be surprised to learn that there are 31 cuts of beef that meet the definition of lean. If you eat beef 3x a week, it will take you over 2 months to try them all! That means flexibility and excitement on the dinner plate. 

Make sure you're following the nutrition guidelines for serving size. The recommended beef serving is 3 oz, cooked and trimmed. That is about the size of a deck of cards or a smart phone. Supplement your beef meal with plenty of veggies and grains to achieve a balanced meal packed with nutritional value.
