Lung Healthy Recipe: Beef Stew

by | Aug 17, 2018 | Blog, Diet And Nutrition, Recipes

Beef stew can be both hearty and healthy. The resveratrol in red wine can help reduce inflammation in the body, while the reduced-sodium beef broth is a heart-healthy choice for this savory dish. This red-meat stew is packed with rich, savory flavors that work as meals for lunch or dinner. If you do not have a pressure cooker, you can cook this stew on low for eight hours.
