About

Every so often I’m in need of beef. I don’t need much, just a few slices of a nice, juice steak. Nothing wrong with that. Beef can be part of a healthy eating plan as long as it’s a lean cut of beef, and you don’t eat it every night.

This steak sandwich satisfied my beef craving. A few slices on my favorite Orowheat Sandwich Thins with some really great caramelized peppers and onions, and I was a happy camper.

With light and refreshing tomato and cucumber salad on the side, this meal came in under 400 calories.
