May, named for the Greek goddess Maia, is the fifth month of the calendar and last month of Spring. As we pack away winter wear and clean off bbq grills we look forward to a summer of fun in the sun.
This month we celebrate Motherhood, Teachers and remember those who died while serving in our nation’s armed forces on Memorial Day. It is also National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, a great time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle and a perfect time for children and families to get outside and play together! The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition has a number of programs to help inspire you to be active, eat well, and stay healthy.
Here at Painted Hills Natural Beef we encourage you to make lean, healthy beef a part of your program. Many of America’s favorite beef cuts are considered lean; meaning that a 3-oz portion has less than 10 grams of total fat. To choose lean cuts of beef, look for “Loin” or “Round” in the name.
Even better news is that grass-fed beef is naturally leaner and has fewer calories than conventional meat. A 7-oz grass-fed strip steak has only 234 calories and 5 grams of fat making it a healthy choice for your May celebrations and your healthy lifestyle goals!
