This season's long, lean dress does not take inspiration from the floral, flouncy maxis of seasons past. In urban monochrome shades of army green, gray, white, and black, the silhouette is more '90s grunge and less '70s hippie. Some of our favorites above (from Rick Owens, Stella McCartney, Bassike, and Helmut Lang) show just a bit of leg and look perfect with an open-toe boot or flat sandal and a cropped jacket—a modern go-to outfit that will take you right through the fall.
It's time to put your guessing hat on!
Being a buffalo virgin, I was incredibly surprised at how good it tasted. The steaks were pink, moist, and meaty. I falsely assumed that buffalo would be gamy or more like lamb. If I hadn't known it was buffalo, I would have guessed the steaks were a lean cut of beef. It's extremely important to properly cook the meat because it can dry out quickly. Generally a buffalo steak cooks a few minutes less than a beef steak.
Check out my photos below and tell me: have you eaten buffalo? What did you think of it?
I'm sure we are all striving to have healthy bodies, and to maintain a healthy weight for our height. I'm sure you also have a goal in mind for your body. You can be lean, and have toned muscles. Or you can take it a step further and have ripped 6-pack abs and defined muscles. So I want to know...
Beef has a BAD reputation. And while red meat might not be the healthiest food on the planet, there are ways to enjoy beef that might not be SO detrimental to your health. If you select a cut of beef labeled lean the meat must have under 10 grams of fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 3 1/2 ounce serving.
Cuts of beef are graded by the amount of marbling (streaks of fat) it contains. But do you know what grade is the leanest?
The use of the term "Lean" on Food Labeling has a new, expanded meaning as announced recently by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Under the new rule, labels on meals-on-the-go (such as burritos, pizza rolls, egg rolls, and sandwiches) can carry the word lean if the items have less than 8 grams total fat, 3.5 grams or less saturated fat and less than 80 milligrams of cholesterol per amount customarily consumed (140 grams).
Before this rule change, the nutrient content claim of lean was limited to seafood and game meat products, as well as to meal and main dish products.
Why the change? In the recent news release:
The FDA acknowledges that meals-on-the-go have made their way into consumers' diets as a convenient meal option. With controlled nutrient and portion size, these foods serve a useful purpose in assisting consumers in selecting a diet that is consistent with recommended U.S. Dietary Guidelines...
