One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. High-carb, low-carb, red-meat, no-meat, gluten-free, sugar-free. Confusion is the norm in answering the question of what to eat these days. This is in spite of decades of research supporting the notion that it’s not any one particular dietetic ideology that is the best for weight loss and health, but instead that what matters is what you can sustain as a part of your lifestyle for the long haul! For more research backed info on this check out the International Society of Sports Nutrition’s position stand and meta-analysis on the topic, or Examine.com, an excellent resource for answering your nutrition and supplementation questions using scientific evidence in an easy to understand format. Now, whatever your goals or beliefs, it’s important to have a strong set of recipes to sustain your healthy habits, so we’re here to share our Grass-Fed Beef Recipe with Kale and Lentil Pasta!
Ingredients for Grass-Fed Beef Recipe with Kale and Lentil Pasta:
Ingredient quality is a big part of not only nutrition, but also taste. If you’ve never had grass-fed beef before, you will immediately taste the difference! When cooking with grass-fed beef for family and friends, the first question is always “what marinade and seasoning did you put on it? This tastes amazing, I need some of that!” Inevitably, they are shocked when I say “there was none, I just put it on the skillet or grill!” Their shocked faces of “wait, so this is what beef is actually supposed to taste like??” never gets old…
Just like our last recipe for salmon, pasta, and broccoli, most of the ingredients were sourced from our Farmer’s Market home delivery and community pickup partner Market 2Day (Use the promo code GOLDEN10 for 10% off of your first order)! The lentil pasta, marinara sauce, and avocado oil are also from Trader Joe’s, while the pink Himalayan salt and Italian seasoning are from the Atlantic Spice Company.
