It’s no secret I have a hungry busy brood to feed. I am also now very health concise as my husband has high cholesterol and I have active boys that need proper nutrition to keep up with all their activities. So I go for lean cuts of meat paired with salads or veggies most of the time.But it wasn’t always this way.
After my husband was diagnosed with High cholesterol I departed from my original steak, potato’s, & a beer cooking. All I knew to cook that was healthy and low in fat was chicken & rice. Well let me tell you that got old real fast. So I went searching for what I could feed my family including myself who was pregnant at the time. What was my solution you ask…BEEF! Whaaat you say. Yes ladies the healthy, nutrition packed, satisfy even the craziest mommy craving choice in my house is BEEF.
But wait a minute, back up the chuckwagon what about that husband with high cholesterol? Did you know that just about any round or loin cut is a lean cut of beef? I can hear the collective” really” now. Yup it is, and I had no idea either until I visited www.beefinfo.org
I found this wonderful buying guide that helped me understand the best cuts to buy for my family, and what to do with them.
There is also an amazing Nutrition Counter to break down exactly whats in beef & which cuts are the best source for key nutrients.
That’s not all either. The recipes I found have changed the way I cook much to the delight of my kids & hubby. The Grilled Flank Steak with Olive Oil Vinaigrett has become a weekly staple. We even enjoy the Mini Burgers for a Friday night treat!
There are tons of recipes there that are so flavorful & nutrition packed I am still trying new ones and adding in our favorites to the weekly menu.
I especially adore the beef 101 page which is where I go with all my burning questions.
