A few days ago I predicted a Canada's Food Guide and Health Check defense of the most recent bad news for beef, and opening up today's National Post I wasn't disappointed.
Here's beef loving dietitian Lisa Mina's take on the most recent beef study,
"Beef is a nutritious food choice with 14 essential nutrients that we need every day. Canada's Food Guide recommends one to three servings of meat and alternatives per day (75 g per serving of meat), depending on age and gender. There are several lean Canadian beef choices, with eight beef cuts, as well as lean and extra lean ground beef, qualifying for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada's Health Check program.Way to pimp that degree Lisa.
Disease prevention is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle based on balance and moderation."
