Meat and Potatoes

Meat and Potatoes

Beef often gets a bad rap for being high in saturated fat so choose lean cuts of beef for a healthier meat option. High-quality, lean protein helps to support healthy muscles, provides iron, and keeps you feeling full plus it's a good source of energy-providing B vitamins. When selecting meat, any meat ending in "loin" is usually the most lean and quite tender. Also try flank steak, tri-tip, and hanger steak for a budget-friendly option.

Ditch the fried fries or butter-filled mashed potatoes and offer grilled potato strips to satisfy your guy's meat and potato fix.
