There are so many brands on the shelf when it comes to beef. Add in all of the nutrition-based claims on the front of the package and you’re sure to be confused. As a Retail Dietitian, I frequently receive questions regarding these claims and suggested healthy brands to purchase. Laura’s Lean Beef was ‘born’ in 1985, by Laura Freeman, as a response to consumers’ concerns about the high fat and cholesterol in ground beef. She set out to find a solution to allow health conscious consumers to continue to eat beef in good conscience. Quality is at the heart of everything they do at Laura’s Lean Beef. They live and work guided by a simple, honest set of principles:
- All natural: They believe that it is best to raise cattle in the way that nature intended.
- Stewardship: They believe in the mindful nurturing of land and animals.
- No added hormones or antibiotics: They don’t believe in using antibiotics or growth hormones to speed the growth of the cattle.
- Vegetarian Fed: Cattle live in pastures and graze on natural grasses and grains.
Not only do they have top notch principles and standards but the care they give to their animals shines through in the delicious flavor of the beef. If you missed our cooking class featuring this star brand, the recipes were a huge hit! They were so good that I had to share here as well, plus I added in some bonus recipes to try. Laura’s Lean Beef is the perfect substitution to take your cooking to the next level!
