Go Lean with Protein

Incorporating lean protein into your diet does not have to be boring! Just remember-when shopping for a cut of beef that is lean, just look for the words loin and round. There are more than 29 cuts of beef that meet government guidelines for lean. Many of America’s favorite cuts are even lean! A good goal to set is to try to get 25-30 grams of lean protein (like beef) per meal. Protein gives your body many benefits such as: building and replenishing muscles, preventing overeating, and maintaining a strong and lean body. One 3-ounce serving of beef provides 25 grams of protein and ten essential nutrients!

I know that I personally have trouble finding time to balance my diets. Some days, I am just happy if I eat three square meals. This is not conducive to planning a wholesome meal plan that my body needs to fuel me through the day. Luckily Beef, it’s What’s for Dinner came up with a 30 day protein challenge. If you sign up for the challenge, you will receive emails every day with goals, tips, and inspiration to keep you on track for your protein goal. I tried this challenge, and it really helped me start on the path to eating a more balanced diet rich in protein. If you sign up for the protein challenge, but decide you do not wish to receive the daily emails anymore, opting out is very easy.
