I eat a lot of protein and veggies. Like a lot. And yes…this can become quite boring! Well…have no fear because I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to make the boring protein and veggies seem…well not so boring. In fact, I have a lot of tricks, such as this beef and broccoli, to make veggies delicious and make you crave more!

This recipe for a Healthy Beef and Broccoli is not only super easy and quick, but it is delicious. This one is my dad’s favorites and I feel like I make it just as much for him as I do for myself! I do not use the traditional cut of beef for beef and broccoli.  However, I find that using bigger chunks of good quality steak definitely takes this meal up a notch. (I prefer this over the thinly sliced pieces of beef.) You can totally use any cut or type of steak or meat you prefer.

This recipe makes a great lunch or dinner and is a great recipe to meal prep. Making a big volume and having leftovers makes eating healthy super easy and convenient because you are essentially, meal prepping. I definitely found, while on my journey, having quick easy and delicious meals ready to eat made it easier to stay on track.
