A healthy diet can include red meat. 3 things to consider when buying beef


A healthy diet can include red meat. 3 things to consider when buying beef
Omaha World-Herald

Nutritionally, finishing cows with grass can allow a better overall fat content, with slightly less saturated fat and slightly more omega three fats. However, the differences in nutrition profiles between grass- and grain-fed cows are small, especially if a person is following the recommendation to limit red meat to two to three servings per week.NutrientsFrom my standpoint as a dietitian, the most beneficial nutrients in beef are the macronutrient protein, and minerals such as iron and zinc.A 3-ounce portion of lean beef contains up to 25 grams of protein for about 150 calories. To get that amount of protein from a plant-based source like quinoa, you would have to eat 3 cups, or over 650 calories. Beef is a dense source of protein.Iron and zinc are important in energy production, muscle recovery and healing, among other body processes.
