G’S TIP OF THE WEEK
Not all red meat is created equal. There are definitely ways to enjoy beef without all the fat. Go for lean and extra lean cuts. These would include round steaks, strip, tenderloin and top sirloin. Look for steaks with the least amount of visible fat (the white marbling). Select grass fed over corn fed and look for “select” rather than “prime”, as prime is fattier and higher in unhealthy saturated fats. Looking for another low fat option… My favorite is Bison (aka Buffalo) which is very low in fat but high in protein. For a 3 oz serving it only has 2 grams of fat!
Have a great day!
