Red meat is high in protein, is a complete protein (meaning that it contains all twenty amino acids)
Red meat is an excellent source of minerals and vitamins, including iron, zinc, selenium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, calcium, all the B vitamins (especially B12), and the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Although red meat has been vilified as a source of saturated fat, you now know that eating fat is important, especially the vitamin-rich fat from quality animal sources, which means that red meat is back on the menu!
