steamed vegetables with grass-fed steak

Serves 4

A delicious healthy recipe from our Co-Founder and Nutrition Director, Louise Keats.

When buying steak, I’m careful to buy only grass-fed steak both because it’s more nutrient dense and it’s kinder to the animal. Lot feeding is pretty dismal for cattle and the meat is less healthy for us. In Australia, you can even buy carbon-neutral, grass-fed beef, which is the most ethical choice of all.

Make the vegetables the hero for a double health tick.
