Eating Beef As Part Of A Healthy Diet

beef and vegetablesAre you trying to eat better? Maybe you have a summer garden and you are canning fruits and vegetables to develop year-round healthy recipes for you and your family. Maybe you are buying more organic foods and eating more vegetables with your meals. If you are trying to watch what you eat and improve your health, eating lean ground beef can definitely fit into a healthy lifestyle. Beef is a great source of protein, iron, and heart-healthy B vitamins. The key is to know which types of ground beef to purchase and the best ways to prepare your meals.

The type of beef you choose to cook with has much to do with the nutritional value. When purchasing ground beef, look for selections that are 90% lean or higher. When buying steak, choose the leanest cuts. A great tip is to look for varieties that have "loin" or "round" in the name. When preparing your meat, trim away any visible outside fat before cooking. Choose a healthier method for preparing beef - grilling, broiling, and roasting are some good choices.

When adapting a healthy lifestyle, always remember portion control. One 3-ounce serving of beef is approximately the same size as a computer mouse or a deck of cards. Fill in the rest of your plate with vegetables. Your friends at Southern States have collected some delicious beef recipes for you and your family.
