Healthy Hints

Are you struggling with low iron stores or iron deficiency? Did you know the iron in red meat is the most easily absorbed by the body, and is one of the main sources of vitamin B12.

Intended to be a side salad, you can definitely add more salad greens to give this dish an additional nutritional boost. Remember that some cuts of red meat are higher in saturated fat than others, so it is important to watch your portion size and choose leaner cuts. Looking for some variations to this recipe? Why not add some beansprouts, grape tomatoes, spinach or fresh basil to whip up yet another delicious beef salad recipe. Tuck in and enjoy!
