5 Best Balanced Beef Recipes from Registered Dietitians
October 22, 2020
Beef not only has great taste, it contains many nutrients that our bodies need. In just one 3 ounce cooked serving, you get 10 essential nutrients, including about 25 grams of protein, which can help you to build and maintain muscle, manage your weight, and feel satisfied after each meal! When beef is united on the plate with other nutritious foods like veggies and whole grains, there is no sacrificing on nutrition or flavor.
To showcase some #balancedwithbeef pairings, we partnered with 3 Beef-loving Registered Dietitians around the state who created delicious recipes just for you. Enjoying nutritious meals is easier than ever with these 5 flavorful meals.
