The other day I was in the mood for some red meat. I used to think that was simply a ‘craving’, but since I’ve been ‘off’ red meat for a while, I think my body NEEDS it.  And according to the Cleveland Clinic, there are some real benefits to eating  ‘red’ meat.

There is a caveat and a question. Just how often should you eat red meat? The experts at the Cleveland Clinic say you should limit your red meat consumption to 1 to 2 servings per week. That’s about six ounces or less a week.  If you have heart disease or high cholesterol, then it’s recommended you limit eating red meat to three ounces or less per week.

Red meat actually has many vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that your body needs. Red meat can be a good source of protein, B vitamins, iron and zinc. But the cuvette lies in what type of red meat you’re eating and how often.
