No matter what your age or gender, it is so important to get some grass fed beef into your weekly meals, here’s why: for starters, grass-fed beef is one of the most nutrient-dense proteins you can buy. Sit and think about that for a moment. It may cost more per pound, but it is packed with minerals and brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids. It may not make you wise, though it can support healthy blood sugar levels, supply your body with essential electrolytes and can potentially decrease your risk of heart disease. Did we mention that grass-fed beef contains higher amounts of vitamin K2? If that is important to you, cook up this stir-fry tonight.

We’ve made this beef sirloin stir-fry with onion, asparagus, and red bell pepper, though we challenge you to be creative and use what you have on hand, it is a great way to use up leftover vegetables. Green peppers? Great. Zucchini? Even better.
