iVillage.com: Dr. Oz's Healthiest Superfoods -- How Many Are In Your Shopping Cart?

Supermarket Staple #16: Eye of the Round/Steak

Why It's a Must Have: While there is a lot of contradictory information out there about whether or not red meat is good for you, experts say it can be a part of a healthy, balanced diet – especially if you choose the right cut and watch your portions. “Beef eye roast is a lean, naturally boneless cut that doesn't taste so lean because its light fat covering traps flavor,” says Christen Cupples Cooper, a registered dietitian and owner of Cooper Nutrition Education and Communications in Pleasantville, New York. “Beef is a valuable source of heme iron (the type of iron most easily absorbed by the body) and a good source of a number of vitamins and minerals.” Cooper recommends limiting portions to the size of your palm in order to keep calories and cholesterol in check.

Budget Bonus: This is one investment worth making (think of all the money you are saving elsewhere) and buy grass-fed bison burgers or bison meat since its nutritional value is higher than conventional meat, recommends Dr. Brock.
