Wholewheat pasta is a great alternative to regular white pasta, as it has a higher fibre content which helps in maintain gut health as well as keeping you fuller for longer, and helps to maintain steady blood sugar levels throughout the day. Wholewheat pasta is also high in B vitamins and minerals, such as copper, selenium, magnesium and manganese.
At GourmetFuel, we use only the best lean Irish beef which is world-renowned for it's quality! Lean beef is a highly nutritious food, and an excellent component of a healthy diet, since it contains all of the vitamins and minerals of high-fat beef but with much less saturated fat, helping to maintain heart health!
Beef contains all 9 essential amino acids needed for the growth and maintenance of our bodies and is particularly important in muscle maintenance and synthesis - critical for those who exercise a lot! The iron contained in lean beef is easily absorbed by our bodies, and is an important nutrient for development and functioning of the red blood cells, and helps to maintain energy levels. Vitamin B12 is also found in lean beef and it is mostly creating red blood cells and also aids in protein metabolism.
