What is it with beef? You can have a meal with chicken – yep, it’s nice. You can eat roast duck – yummy with julienned cucumbers and onion, in a pancake and with hoisin sauce. That’s better.
But it’s only beef which causes you to stay fed, to stay full, to feel you’ve really had a meal. And as MHlists says:
Most people consider turkey, chicken, and fish healthy, yet think they should avoid red meat—or only choose very lean cuts—since they’ve always been told that it’s high in saturated fat.
But there are two problems in that thinking. The first problem is that almost half of the fat in beef is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid—the same heart-healthy fat that’s found in olive oil. Second, most of the saturated fat in beef actually decreases your heart-disease risk—either by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, or by reducing your ratio of total cholesterol to HDL (good) cholesterol.
And besides being one of the most available sources of high-quality protein, beef also provides many important nutrients such as iron, zinc, and B vitamins. So the idea that beef is bad for you couldn’t be further from the truth.
We’re being given so much contradictory garbage these days – hey look, beef has fed the warrior and the schoolboy [and girl] for millennia – what’s with the modern preoccupation with “not healthy”? If anything’s not healthy, it’s the sedentary lifestyle and the worry of modern life.
