The Heart-Healthy Benefits of Beef – Lunch Special Geneva IL
Lean beef packs a wide range of nutrients such as iron, zinc, B-vitamins and – of course – protein. Additionally, beef is simply delicious and carries relatively minimal calories.
Lean beef serves to support a healthy body by delivering essential nutrients that grow and restore muscle tissue. When considering all the muscles in the human body, it’s the heart that is naturally the most essential. Certainly, diet and regular exercise are the foundation for a healthy, strong heart. A heart-healthy plan typically includes a selection of protein, fruits, veggies, grains and healthy fats.
Research reveals that with lean beef as part of a rounded diet helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Beef is a primary source of potassium in the USA. Also, some estimates show that beef contributes to just one percent of sodium consumption. In fact, partly replacing carbs in your diet with protein instead can be an effective strategy for preventing cardiovascular problems and hypertension.

Despite some misconceptions, beef contributes approximately ten percent or less of saturated and total fats in typical American diets. Approximately 30 percent of beef’s saturated fat is content is stearic acid, which is also found in chocolate. Stearic acid is beneficial due its neutral impact upon blood cholesterol levels. Furthermore, beef is a main source of monounsaturated fats. This is the same variety of healthy fat content which is found in foods such as olive oil and avocados. It’s no surprise that studies show consuming four or five ounces of lean beef contributes to overall positive diets.
Make Beef Part of Your Heart-Healthy Diet with These Easy Tips
-Select lean beef. These days, beef is leaner than it was even just a few short years ago. Certainly, there is a wide array of cuts to choose from fulfill the definition of officially “lean.” Look for 95 percent lean ground beef and choose round or loin cuts. Consider choosing steaks such as flank, sirloin and T-bone.
-Remember to include fruits and vegetables. Beef goes along great with sides like plums, pineapple, zucchini and corn for extra flavors. When making a meal, include tasty toppings like peppers or mushrooms.
-When preparing beef, use the medium heat setting. This helps avoid overdoing the beef, which can occur on the higher heat settings which the inside ends up underdone.
-Marinades with low or zero sugar content help protect beef from charring.

Did You Know? April 27 is National Prime Rib Day! Prime rib is a cut of delicious beef that quality steakhouses like Foxfire roast and serve as a main course. Real prime rib is actually graded as “prime” by the USDA. Other meat grades in the USA are choice, cutter, select and canner.
It’s always best to enjoy prime rib when our expert chef prepares it for you! However, to do it yourself just follow these simple instructions.
To cook prime rib in the comfort of your own kitchen, start by removing the excess fat off the bottom of the cut. Combine a half cup of fresh, chopped parsley, half cup rosemary, half cup tarragon and a quarter cup of thyme. Put these ingredients along with some salt and pepper into a bowl. Next, add a quarter cup of olive oil. Coat the prime rib with this mixture. Cook at 325 degrees for approximately 2.5 hours or until the roast’s interior temperature gets to 120 degrees. Lastly, let prime rib rest for about ten minutes prior to serving.

Foxfire is an environmentally conscious restaurant. We do what we can to be a responsible business that’s helps protect the environment. For example, we serve paper straws rather than plastic straws with our beverages. Read on for a quick look at the advantages of using paper straws.
Paper or Plastic? A Few Benefits to Using Paper Straws
It’s becoming clear in recent years that the use of plastic straws is an important issue that calls for attention. In response, more and more restaurants are converting to paper straws. However, are they really easier on the environment? Here’s a few reasons why paper is the way to go when it comes to that reliable beverage companion.
-Paper straws are biodegradable. Even when we toss away plastic straws into the nearest recycling bin, it still likely they wind up in a landfill. Once there, it takes years for them to decompose. In contrast, paper straws are wholly compostable and biodegradable. Even if they end up somewhere in an ocean, they’ll begin to break down within a matter of days. Paper straws simply take a fraction of the time that plastic does to decompose. Without a doubt, plastic products can require centuries to completely decompose in a landfill.
-Plastic is often more likely to end up in the ocean. It’s there when plastic eventually breaks apart into small micro-plastics which fish and sea life ingest. Unlike plastic straws, paper straws decompose back into the ground within just a month or so.

-Converting to paper straws serves to reduce the usage of plastic straws. Worldwide use of plastic straws is pretty amazing. Some estimates put the daily use of straws in the millions. That’s enough straws fill about 45,000 buses every year. Over the last 20 years, clean-up efforts across the nation removed over six million straws annually. Selecting paper straws instead of plastic can lessen this harmful impact significantly.
-Paper straws are more affordable. As more supply companies and restaurants become aware of the impact of plastic straws, demand is rising. Still, they remain relatively inexpensive for businesses to purchase in bulk.
