Nutritional values

This fine filet of beef has a lot of fat, but this adds great flavor and protein. Grapeseed oil adds omega-3 fatty acids, which is important for the heart and circulation.

Treat yourself to a piece of wholegrain baguette or ciabatta with the summery salad, to add even more fiber.
