The convention was a great time. Montana is not a populous state and the agricultural community is widespread but small in that everyone know everyone. We all were in 4-H and FFA together or went to college together. Even if you don't know someone your friends all know them. Good times.
I brought home a couple water bottles to share.
One three ounce serving of beef contains
- 51% of the daily value for protein
- 38% of the daily value of Zinc which aids in post exercise tissue repair and helps convert food to fuel
- 37% of the daily value of Vitamin B12 which aids cell development and the functioning of the nervous system and the metabolism of protein and fat
- 14% of the daily value of Iron which besides bringing oxygen to your muscles helps increase resistance to stress and disease
Half of the fat in beef is monounsaturated which is the same heart healthy kind found in olive oil and salmon. Additionally one third of the fat is stearic acid which studies have shown to be neutral or cholesterol lowering.
I will send two lucky readers a water bottle, bag of spices, and some pamphlets full of recipes, tips on cooking beef and nutrition info.
All you have to do to enter is tell me your favorite way to eat beef! I will pick a winner using random.org on 12-23.
