- Lean Meat Facts: Lean Meats are filled with great nutrients such as B vitamins (B6, riboflavin, thiamin, and niacin) which help the body’s metabolism, aid in red blood cell formation, and play a vital role in our nervous system. Iron which can be found in red meat helps maintain energy and carry oxygen through the bloodstream. Magnesium is vital for building bones. Zinc is essential for our immune system.
- Cooking Tip: Whatever recipe you’re preparing, make sure to remove the visible excess fat before cooking the meat even if it is lean meat. You can also marinate your meat before cooking. This will help to soften tough cuts and adds plenty of flavors. To turn your dish into a healthier one, instead of frying, try roasting, grilling, broiling, poaching or boiling fish, meat, and poultry.
