How much red meat should I eat?

By   2 Comments

There’s so much conflicting information out there about red meat. Most of what you’ll find in popular media will lead you to believe that eating red meat is setting you firmly on the path to degradation and disease. But is it that simple?

This week I answer that question, inspired by Latasha who emailed in and asked: “How do I cut back on red meat? My family and I love it.” You can feel her internal conflict even from the way she’s phrased the question.

So: what’s the deal? Is red meat going to send you to the cancer or cardiac ward? Or is there a way that it can be included in a balanced diet? We answer that question in the video below.

    LOVE the idea of grinding up nuts and veggies to add to the ground meat! Can’t wait to try it!

  2. Thanks for posting Danna. We find this method makes ground meat even more craveable. To take it to another level, buy boosted ground meat (or make your own). This is ground meat that has a small percentage of organ meat ground into it. Usually it’s like 80/20. So many of us don’t get enough organ meat in our diet and this is one way to do it while masking that organ-meat taste.
