Please note that although red meats generally provide good amounts of zinc, iron, vitamin B-12 and protein - red meats can also provide extreme amounts of fat and cholesterol. Therefore, drain thoroughly, cook in the microwave to extinguish fat, braise with low calorie/low fat glazes and sauces, keep the portion sizes small and do not cook in oil. Be sure and add vegetables high in fiber to help offset the fat content and to strengthen your fight against cancer.
