Beef is the ideal candidate to replenish our iron reserves. 2.2-2.6 milligrams of iron per 100 grams makes beef one of the best sources of this trace element, which stimulates blood formation and improves oxygen transport in the body. Another plus point: The iron from beef is optimally usable for the body.

Enjoy the classic beef soup with pith dumplings and a dash of egg. For this, mix two eggs, 125 ml milk, a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg and salt. Grease a cup with butter, pour in the egg mixture and leave to set in a hot water bath for about 30 minutes. Take it out, let it cool down, cut it into cubes and add it to the soup before serving.
