Don’t get lost in chicken monotony! If you are like me, you find that chicken dishes make it to your plate 10x more than any other meat! I actually just recently saw a news report that  suggested chicken has taken over as America’s meat, replacing “Beef, its whats for dinner.” Well, folks, today is the day to dive into the red meat in a new & fun way! I mean who doesn’t love a warm, juicy, sirloin??! A lot of people try to avoid red meat due to myths that it is not good for you. This just isn’t true. Red meat provides nutrients like iron & zinc that can help you maintain energy. It also supplies protein & amino acids that repair small muscle tears (aka- a great choice for all you athletes out there!) Red meat also is very helpful in raising your HDL cholesterol, which is cardioprotective & helps lower your bad cholesterol
