NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Beef:

Almost half the fat in beef is a mono-unsaturated fat called oleic acid – the same heart-healthy fat found in olive oil. And most of the saturated fat in beef actually decreases your heart-disease risk!

Coriander:

Used for treatment of swellings and high cholesterol levels and known for promoting digestion.

Shallots:

Packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Tomatoes:

Good source of Vitamins A, C, K, folate and potassium.
