Charcuterie, Meat Cones and Prepared Beef

nutrition Aug 13, 2021

For this blog, I partnered with the North American Meat Institute, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff.  All opinions are my own.

Just a few short weeks ago I hosted a surprise party for Kara at one of our favorite restaurants in Louisville, which is a butcher shop that doubles as a fantastic restaurant.

 Without going into details, the food talk of the night was the charcuterie, which was one of the passed appetizers. But more than that, it was dubbed a “Meat Cone” which included, in house prepared beef, some local cheeses and a few other tasty delights. 

Prepared beef, you say?  Isn’t that bad for you? 

The truth is – well, the truth is distorted – like so much of nutrition. Prepared beef gets such a bad rap!  In fact, prepared beef offers taste, convenience and nutrition that delivers value and satisfaction when you need it the most.

Wait?!  EGGS?!

But the headlines are out. Eating eggs causes heart disease. Yup, there it is again. While we wouldn't recommend adding raw eggs to a glass and drinking them like Rocky did in his first movie, eating eggs shouldn't quite cause the concerns it does.

Today the Environmental Working Group released this year’s update to their Shopper’s Guide to Produce. Their "Dirty Dozen" list ranks the pieces of produce that, according to their analysis, turn up with the highest concentration of pesticides and/or the the greatest number of different pesticides.

The screaming headline from this year's Dirty Dozen: After strawberries and spinach, kale comes in as the third "dirtiest" fruit or vegetable.



America’s beloved leafy green superfood—found everywhere from farmers' markets to Chick-Fil-A—is a newcomer to the Dirty Dozen list this year. According to EWG, the USDA hadn’t tested kale in a decade. What they discovered is that more than 90 percent of tested samples of kale had two or more pesticide residues—and multiple kale samples had 18 different pesticides.
