We’re all trying our best to be healthy and take care of ourselves. But so often, the food that we love isn’t the healthiest option. It’s easy to think that everything delicious is going to be unhealthy. But we’re happy to tell you that’s just not true! There are plenty of tasty meals that you love that are actually pretty healthy, or easy to make so. Why are we talking about this at Bill & Bob’s Famous Roast Beef? Because roast beef sandwiches are healthier than you might think!
Here’s why you should be eating roast beef sandwiches.
Get your protein in.
Roast beef is high in protein, which is an essential part of any healthy diet. It’s what your body uses to build muscle and repair damaged tissue. Protein also helps to boost your metabolism, which is how your body breaks down and uses the nutrients in your food and burns the fat stores in your body. Finally, having enough protein in your daily diet keeps you from overeating. Eating protein makes you feel fuller longer, so one protein-rich meal can keep you going all day.
Low cal, low carb, low (saturated) fat.
Compared to other forms of beef, roast beef is a relatively low-calorie option. There are only about 70 calories in a two-ounce serving of roast beef. You can burn that off by jogging for less than 10 minutes. Roast beef itself also contains virtually no carbohydrates, so the only carbs you’re consuming comes from the other ingredients in the sandwich. The bread provides simple carbohydrates, which are the type people are concerned about. Vegetables like lettuce and tomato provide complex carbohydrates, which your body uses for energy. Finally, roast beef is low in saturated fat, which contributes to high cholesterol.
It’s a great source of iron.
Last but not least, eating roast beef helps you get enough iron in your diet. Your body needs iron to make blood cells and transport oxygen throughout your body. Having low iron can result in low energy, dizziness, headaches, and other issues.
