Microblog: The Nutrition Facts of the Ribeye
📚I’ve updated and made new nutritional graphics (all in @CarnivoreCure!) that are now standardized to depict 100g servings. Note that 100 grams is a very small portion for meat (only about 3-3.5 ounces) but it is the standard for comparisons.
🎉To start off the nutritional series, here is the new and improved Ribeye infographic! ENJOY!
👩🏻🔬Nutritional Daily Values are defined by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council / National Academy of Sciences. These nutritional needs are based on the Standard American Diet and should differ for a carnivore diet. But for the sake of making all things equal, ribeye still comes out very nutrient-dense in terms of Daily Value (DV) %s.⠀
🥩Ribeye steak has nearly all the essential minerals (depicted on the left side) and essential vitamins (right side). Ribeyes also have a good amount of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and Choline. Steaks also do have trace amounts of Vitamin C but on a carnivore diet, carnivores thrive without much Vitamin C. (I talk in-depth about vitamin C + scurvy in @CarnivoreCure)
🧬Ribeyes (all beef) also contains Creatine and Carnosine which is not found in plant foods. Creatine plays a key role in energy regulation in the brain and muscles.
🥚 Per the USDA database, ribeye is missing Biotin (B7) but you can get healthy doses from dairy, liver, salmon and egg yolk. Chromium is missing but can be found in eggs, fish and liver. Molybdenum is missing but can be found in eggs and liver.
💡Eat ribeye with eggs, liver and/or fish. Daily Value %s covered.
💪🏼Daily Values are created as “the most authoritative source of information on nutrient allowances for healthy people.” Then, if you eat ribeye, you are healthy people.
🦸🏻♀️And since most carnivores eat 1.5-3lbs of ribeye daily, they are super healthy people. ♥️
