Enjoying a steak from the grill is often the best part of a Canada Day barbecue. Make your holiday barbecue healthy by selecting a lean cut of beef. Including beef in your meal plan can increase variety and add nutrition to your eating plan. The keys are the cut and portion size you choose. Red meats are a nutrition powerhouse. They are great sources of iron, zinc, protein, vitamins B6, B12 and niacin. So invite your friends to the Didsbury Fun Flyers Canada Day Fun Fly, then head home for a great Alberta beef steak!
