Maintaining a Healthy, Balanced Diet with Beef

Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet can be difficult to do while dining out, but at Ruth’s Chris we offer a variety of healthy dinner options from salads to steaks and seafood. Beef is a delicious, healthy option, as it is a great source for iron, zinc, protein, and B-vitamins, which are important for overall health and wellness.

Ruth’s Chris uses prime or premium cuts of choice, corn-fed Midwestern beef. They are raised on a grass diet and then switched to corn to ensure that the flavor and quality meets our standards. Choosing well-raised, lean cuts of beef while eating out is a great way to maintain a healthy diet.
