Beef is star of National Eating Healthy Day

The North Dakota Beef Commission (NDBC), 40 Steak and Seafood and the North Dakota chapter of the American Heart Association are teaming up to celebrate National Eating Healthy day on Nov. 5, 2015, with an exclusive event featuring beef at the 40 Steak and Seafood Restaurant in Bismarck, N.D.

The event is in collaboration with the annual National Eating Healthy Day celebration that raises awareness of the importance of good nutrition and making the best eating decisions to reduce a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

“The NDBC is proud to sponsor a National Eating Healthy Day cooking demonstration in Bismarck where Chef Alan Abryzo from 40 Steak & Seafood will show consumers how simple it can be to cook healthy, inexpensive meals for their family and friends,” said Nancy Jo Bateman, executive director of the NDBC.

She explained that the demonstration will show attendees ways to put heart-healthy beef on their table this Holiday season and every day in between. Participants will learn basic cooking skills, techniques to get started and inspired – and have fun with beef.

Several cuts of beef meet the requirements for heart-healthy foods as part of an overall healthy dietary pattern and are certified to display the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check mark. These cuts include, but are not limited to:

Extra Lean Ground Beef (96% lean, 4% fat)
