Red meat gets such a bad reputation these days ♀️ Sure, too much of anything is a bad thing, and red meat can contain a lot of saturated fat. Choosing lean red meat is a great way to get all of the protein and iron that red meat contains, with much less unhealthy fats! I had my burger on 647 bread to get some extra fiber, but feel free to wrap yours in a lettuce wrap or whole wheat tortilla (bread is not included in nutrition facts)
As you can see, my kitchen helper was a little too busy resting today to help me cook
