Eating “healthy” could mean opting for leaner and healthier cuts of meat. For other’s, it’s going vegan all the way. I consider myself someone in between—a flexitarian.
When I do eat meat, I go straight for the good stuff like Australian grassfed beef, which has less saturated fat than regular beef and a high level of omega-3 fatty acids essential for a healthy heart.
It’s a good thing, then, that Australian beef has become more accessible in the local scene. The Australian Embassy even has an ongoing promotion, running until August 20, with 36 participating restaurants and 60 outlets in Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao.

Those who like their meat in its purest form can also go for the Steak and Eggs: rib-eye steak slices topped with chimichurri sauce and plated with crispy potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly—a bit seared on the outside but still pink in the middle. I couldn’t help but sigh as I relished the tender meat and its juices with each bite.
