Eating a plant-based diet that includes beef and other animal products allows for flexibility, which can decrease a lot of stress around eating. Enjoy the health benefits of a balanced place while continuing to include healthy foods you already know and love.

Include whole grains like brown rice, whole-grain bread, oatmeal, couscous, quinoa, or farro.
Focus on including monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat sources like avocados, olive oil, nuts, and seeds.
Aim for 2 to 3 servings of fruit a day. Beef pairs well with a variety of fruits like apricots, peaches, pineapple, plums and prunes.
