When you think of Mediterranean-inspired diets, do you think of beef? Well, maybe you should. Incorporating fresh, lean red meat into a Mediterranean-style eating pattern can help support heart health.

In fact, Research from Purdue University found that following a Mediterranean-style eating pattern that includes lean red meats, like lean beef, is just as effective in supporting a healthy heart as a Mediterranean-style diet that limits red meats. In fact, including 18 ounces of lean, fresh red meat per week as a part of a Mediterranean-style dietary pattern was found to be more effective in lowering LDL cholesterol than a similar eating pattern that only included 7 ounces of lean, fresh red meat.

Fresh meats were defined in the study as requiring no further preservation or processing beyond refrigeration or freezing; they are not cured, salted or smoked or include chemical preservatives.
