Healthy?  Red meat?  Beef?  Seriously?

Seriously!  You don’t have to avoid tender, juicy steaks to be healthy – if it is Longhorn beef!  Longhorn is leaner and lower in saturated fats than other beef.  Including lean beef in a heart-healthy diet can have a positive impact blood cholesterol levels by increasing 'good' cholesterol and reducing 'bad' cholesterol.  Good news for a healthy lifestyle and taste buds!

You can now have your steak and eat it, too!  While Longhorn beef is not only leaner than other beef, it’s leaner than “the other white meat,” it’s even leaner than most cuts of chicken and turkey.  At only 140 calories per serving, a Longhorn steak has less fat, less cholesterol and fewer calories than almost any other meat or poultry available.  In addition to its low-calorie, low-fat, low cholesterol advantages, Longhorn beef is packed with many of the nutrients needed for a healthy lifestyle;  including Omega-3, protein, iron, zinc, phosphorus, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and vitamin E.

So now you know that you can have your steak and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Want to taste it for yourself?  Great!  We always have samples for you to try, just contact us for a sample and to check for beef availability.  Then all you have to do is to browse on over to our Cut Sheet to customize your selection.
