Hanger Steak –A delicious lean cut of meat that similar to a tenderloin and full of flavor and grilled to perfection. Sometimes called the “butcher’s cut” because this secret cut of meat was the cut that butchers would keep for their families. Beef has the reputation of being a less-than-healthy food. However, red meat is not only rich in vitamins and minerals but contains special fats that possess potential anti-carcinogenic properties. The key is moderation and portion control and choosing low-fat options like our hanger steak. With lean beef, you get the nutritional benefits while avoiding much of the saturated fat known to increase the risk for heart disease.
Beef is a relatively low-calorie food when compared to the number of nutrients it contains. Beef is extremely nutrient-dense, especially when compared to white meat. While a 3-ounce serving of beef makes up less than 10% of the recommended of daily calories, based on a 2,000-calorie diet, it supplies over 10% of the daily value for nine essential nutrients. With particularly high concentrations of protein, zinc, phosphorus, iron and B-complex vitamins, beef can help build strong muscles, teeth and bones while helping supply energy and oxygen to cells.
A 2002 U.S. Department of Agriculture report showed that it would take more than 11 servings of tuna to provide the amount of zinc in one serving of beef, seven skinless chicken breasts to provide the vitamin B-12 in one serving of beef, 3 cups of raw spinach to provide the iron in one serving of beef and almost 3 chicken breasts to provide the riboflavin in a single serving of beef. According to a 2004 paper published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,” beef also contains conjugated linoleic acid, a fatty acid found to possess anti-carcinogenic properties.
Roasted Garlic Marble Potatoes –A simple all natural complement to any dish, simply potatoes, olive oil and garlic. Potatoes contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals. Unfortunately, often the oils used to cook the potatoes have negative health consequences, which is why we only use olive oil. The main type of fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs are considered a healthy dietary fat. MUFAs may help lower your risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. For instance, MUFAs have been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. In addition, some research shows that MUFAs may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be helpful if you have or are at risk of type 2 diabetes.
Tunisian Cauliflower Gratin with a Chermoula Sauce –a delightful blend of parsley, cilantro garlic and lemon juice with a little olive oil. A healthy delicious and flavorful meal. Cauliflower is a superfood that does everything from fighting cancer through cancer stem cell killing sulforaphane compounds to significantly improving blood pressure and kidney function and is also anti-inflammatory and rich in vitamins and minerals.
One order provides approximately 1 serving, 14 oz.
