Are you as exhausted as I am hearing all the claims of what we should and shouldn’t eat? It seems to change weekly. I care greatly about my health as well as my family’s, and since I’m the one who prepares the meals, I make an effort to stay educated about healthy eating. But there are days I just want to throw my hands in the air and feed them all TV dinners for the week! Okay, maybe not TV dinners, but knowing what to feed my family can be downright frustrating at times.
So what about meats? Should they be included in our diet? In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Omaha Steaks has launched #StraightTalkonSteak where they’ll share the good news about beef and nutrition facts we need to know. Should lean meat be apart of our healthy diet? According to American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and American Dietetic Association – the answer is YES.
“Many people are surprised to learn that an average three-ounce lean cut of beef is only 154 calories, yet contains around 25 grams of protein and delivers 10 essential nutrients for optimal health,” said Mitch Rippe, Director of Nutrition and Education at the Nebraska Beef Council. “Think of beef as the kale of protein foods—in addition to being a high-quality, complete protein, a single serving of lean beef contributes 8% of daily calories (2,000-calories per day), yet provides more than 10% of the daily value for 10 essential nutrients—protein, iron, zinc, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, niacin, riboflavin, choline, selenium, and phosphorus.”
