WE ALL KNOW BEEF TASTS DELICIOUS! We all love those grilled burgers & steaks in the summertime. Or the smoked taste of brisket! And we love the slow cooked roast or brisket in the colder months. But is beef healthy for you?

When consumed with an all-encompassing healthy diet, the answer is yes! According to the Beef Checkoff and the National Cattleman’s Beef Association “a 3 oz cooked serving of lean beef provides 10 essential nutrients in around 170 calories, less than 10 grams of total fat and less than 95 mg of cholesterol.” Isn’t that good news!! So beef can be a part of a healthy lifestyle. Making sure you’re getting your daily exercise, recommended daily portion of fruits & vegetables, and your nutrients from beef makes for a strong and healthy body.

One of the major nutrient for supporting a strong healthy body is protein. A 3 oz serving of beef provides the protein your body needs to build muscle. Beef provides 51% of your daily value of protein along with other essential nutrients like iron, zinc, selenium, B vitamins, niacin, and other essential vitamins. So get out there and enjoy your favorite steak this summer!!
