   Beef essentials

Nutritious lean beef not only fits into a healthy diet... it's one way to make a healthy diet even healthier. Lean beef can easily be part of heart healthy eating. In fact, research shows that lean beef can be as effective as chicken or fish as part of a lower-fat diet to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

Iron and Zinc
Iron, found in meat, keeps your body healthy! Iron helps carry oxygen to all parts of your body so you can grow, move and breathe. Too little iron in your body can lead to iron deficiency anemia that causes you to feel tired and irritable and can lower your attention span. In children, low iron levels can lead to a reduced ability to learn and depressed growth.

Zinc is essential for growth, strong immune systems and healthy pregnancies. Enjoying zinc-rich foods can help you get the zinc you need for good health.Protein
Beef continues to be the #1 source of protein. It has all 20 amino acids needed to make a complete protein. Protein does many things to keep the body strong and healthy. It makes hormones, and builds and repairs muscles.B vitamins

Beef contains all five B-complex vitamins - thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6 and B12.

Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin B6 assist the body to turn food into energy. They also help you grow and maintain healthy skin, eyes, appetite and central nervous system.

Vitamin B12
The only reliable source of this vitamin is animal products like meat, fish, poultry, eggs and milk. This vitamin is essential for the normal functioning of the brain and central nervous system. Beef is an excellent source of vitamin B12. 100 grams cooked lean beef has over 125% of your daily need for vitamin B12.BEEF /BABY BEEF / VEAL

"Beef" is meat from full-grown cattle about 2 years old. A live steer weighs about 1,000 pounds and yields about 450 pounds of edible meat. There are at least 50 breeds of beef cattle. Some major breeds are Angus, Hereford , Charolais, and Brahman.

"Baby beef" and "calf" are 2 interchangeable terms used to describe young cattle weighing about 700 pounds that have been raised mainly on milk and grass. The meat cuts from baby beef are smaller; the meat is light red and contains less fat than beef.

"Veal" is meat from a calf which weighs about 150 pounds . Those that are mainly milk-fed usually are less than 3 months old. The difference between "veal" and "calf" is based on the color of their meat, which is determined almost entirely by diet. Veal is pale pink and contains more cholesterol than beef.

Choose colour! Try red meats, dark green vegetables and brown grains.
