In honor of Heart Month, Kansas Beef Council Director of Nutrition Abby Heidari, RDN, LD, appeared on the WIBW-13 TV morning show last week to discuss the health benefits of eating lean beef. Heidari shared with viewers the details of a recent study from the University of Purdue that revealed including lean red meat, like beef, in a Mediterranean-style diet can support heart health. The study was co-funded by the beef checkoff.

During the segment, she shared a Greek “Bowl with Balance” recipe using a grilled KC Strip Steak and provided tips for consumers on how to select lean cuts of beef at the meat counter.

Heidari also highlighted other lean beef recipes from www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com, including Asian and Southwest-style bowls that contain whole grains and vegetables.
