Dinner that looks like dessert? Why not!? So, a while back, I had a hair analysis retest done and was told that I need to try to eat red meat once or twice a week based on the results. You may be thinking that’s odd since red meat gets such a bad rap. However, it’s actually got quite a few health benefits!
The pin links to a site that explains the health benefits of eating red meat. The key benefits are that it provides an excellent source of protein, zinc, iron, and vitamin B12. My nutritional consultant says lamb is best, but a good organic grass-fed ground beef is good too. Of course, just like anything else, moderation is key. Personally, the reason why I probably don’t get enough red meat is simply because I prefer the taste of chicken or turkey, not because I believe it’s bad for me, so I decided to bite the bullet and try to fit in some red meat here and there…to your benefit, because I came up with these darling lil’ meat muffins with a sweet potato frosting because of it!
These are really simple to make, taste pretty amazing, and are great for you! As a side note, if you are adamant about not eating red meat, you can also use ground chicken or turkey in this recipe, and the result is still yummers! Let’s get to the recipe!
