What are the benefits (if any) of adding red meat? I haven't had it in several years, but I'm adding it back in, mainly for variety, but I'd like to know of any added health benefits. We eat quite a bit of chicken and turkey and have fish once or sometimes twice a week. Not really much variety there. If I were able to add more seafood, would my diet be varied enough to not warrant adding red meat? thanks

I personally don't discriminate against one particular animal. So I do try to mix it up just to be fair on each species.
Jokes aside, I do think a fillet mignon beats a chicken breast hands down on the taste factor.
Some pluses of red meats: higher amounts of nutrients like iron, zinc, iron, thiamine and riboflavin (in addition to vitamins B12 and B6)
