How to use a healthier beef option for delicious dinner recipes

(BPT) - If you love the taste of beef and also prefer healthier cooking choices, you’re in luck. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, beef is a good source of protein, and it provides other essential vitamins and nutrients, like iron and zinc.

“Protein helps rebuild and prevent loss of muscle tissue, which is important for those who do strength training as well as older adults at risk of losing muscle mass,” said founder of the Institute for Muscle-Centric Medicine and a fellowship trained physician in nutritional sciences and geriatrics, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon. “A single serving of beef can provide your daily recommended amount of protein, plus iron to help increase oxygen levels throughout your body and zinc to support your immune system.”
