Beef 11 results

People get caught up in the health craze and often decide that not eating beef is a good idea. However, moderation is the key. It provides a good source of niacin, vitamin B6, iron and riboflavin. All of these nutrients play a vital role in the body.  Protein helps build bones, muscles, cartilage and skin.  And not only that, it tastes great!

I like to use organic grass fed beef.  If you haven’t had grass fed, it does have a different taste than you may be accustomed to.  For any of my beef recipes you can use regular or grass fed. Because I focus on healthy recipes, I do suggest using very lean meat unless the recipe calls for something different.

If you love meat, one thing to consider is buying part of a cow or going in on a purchase with your family and friends from a reputable source.  I usually buy 1/4 cow once a year. It’s nice to have all of that fresh grass fed meat on hand.

Here are some great dishes with beef:
