What Are the Benefits of Eating Steak for Breakfast?

Steak and eggs have been an American breakfast staple since the United States Marine Corps adopted this iconic Australian combination during World War II. If you are a Texas native, the chances are you’ve enjoyed a steak for breakfast a time or two. If so, here are many reasons you’d want to revisit this breakfast offering every now and then.

Steak is Loaded With Protein

An eight-ounce top sirloin steak contains about 58 grams of protein, and there are many benefits of eating protein in the morning. It helps you maintain or build healthy muscles, which you will need to get through your day. Almost every cell in your body needs protein.

Starting your day off with a steak is like literally putting fuel in your own gas tank!

Take Advantage of Essential Acids

Steak contains all nine essential acids needed by the human body. It is an especially great source of Omega 3 fatty acids, which helps stop cognitive decline and may help control inflammation in the body.

Therefore, you can stay smarter longer and move better when enjoying steak for breakfast. It also is an excellent source of Omega 6 essential acids, which may protect the heart from disease.

Steak Increases Energy

Eating steak ensures that you have plenty of energy to cope with whatever life throws your way. Yet, steak has very few calories. Each ounce of steak only contains about 55 calories. So, having a Dallas steakhouse-style breakfast could be beneficial for your waistline.

Steak is also an excellent source of satiety hormones, so you won’t get the urge to snack on unhealthy foods before lunchtime.

Steak Increases Longevity

A study published in the International Journal of General Medicine examined the longevity of 218,000 people in 175 contemporary populations. It found that people who ate meat regularly lived longer than in areas where most of the diet consisted of plants.

Furthermore, there was a lower incidence of children dying before their fifth birthday. The researchers who conducted the study concluded that the high protein level in steak and other non-processed meats, along with the essential acids, allowed people to live longer.

Steak is a Great Source of Antioxidants

Steak is a great source of many antioxidants. In particular, it is a good source of glutathione, which may stop cancer-causing free radicals in the body. Furthermore, regularly eating steak may lower your chance of getting Parkinson’s disease and help control diabetes. This antioxidant may also oxidate stress, reducing the effects of many autoimmune diseases. Therefore, it is the perfect breakfast option for almost everyone.
