Wanting to get that HOT summer bod? Just kidding. But if you’re anything like me, COVID19 helped you pack on a few extra pounds, and it’s time to get back to feeling healthy and confident. (COVID is making me a bit crazy too, in case you can't tell :D)
Eating plays a big role in being healthy. While you may have heard myths that beef is actually bad for you, when eaten right, it can be a powerful tool to help you get back into shape and pre-COVID19 health. Beef is the same as every other food - in moderation, it can be a powerful addition to your diet.
Beef is known as a ZIP food. It is high in Zinc, Iron, and Protein. (And a lot of other things too as you can see in the below diagram). We thought it would be helpful to compile a few recipes that you can choose from to pick out a great, healthy meal that includes beef. And let’s be honest, beef recipes are going to be a lot tastier than some of the others you will come across!
None of these recipes are our own. We give credit to each source with the individual recipe.
Good luck and here’s to feeling healthy and gooood. (And not worrying about that HOT summer bod).
