Healthy eating plans love lean Angus

When choosing meat, select lean cuts and make sure serving sizes are appropriate for optimum health benefit. One serving of meat is 3 ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards. The amount of calories, cholesterol and fat varies greatly among different cuts of meat. Many cuts of AngusPride premium beef can be part of a healthy eating plan. Remember when you are creating your grocery list each week that the ultimate goal is to balance high-fat food choices with low-fat food choices in meals over a period of time.

Beef tops chicken, ounce for ounce

A 3-ounce skinless chicken breast contains about 3 grams of fat, and a skinless chicken thigh contains about 9 grams of fat. But did you know there are 8 cuts of beef that fall between the chicken breast and thigh in terms of fat and calorie content? These "skinny" cuts of beef are flank steak, top round, eye round, round tip, top sirloin, bottom round, top loin and tenderloin.
