Laura's Lean Beef Review and Giveaway {closed}


It is no secret that I have been working my butt off lately in order to get in better shape for the New Year (and the rest of my life for that matter!) I have been eating only 100% whole grains, lean meat and lots of fruits/veggies.

I am a HUGE fan of Laura's Lean Beef and what they stand for. Since the beginning, Laura's Lean Beef has been committed to sustainable agriculture, a practical and philosophical system of farming and ranching which revolves around the responsible stewardship of land and animals. The goals of sustainable farming management practices are to produce food and fiber in a way which is environmentally sound, economically viable, and humane.

Doesn't this sound like the way raising beef should be? Remember when I had the AMAZING opportunity to meet and speak with Dr. Greene. He told me that grass-fed beef is so much better for you that traditional beef because there are a great deal more minerals and vitamins in grass-fed beef. This is because grass-fed beef is able to graze on mineral and vitamin rich grains/grasses rather than icky hormone-infested food meant just for bulking up the cows! Maybe that is why Corn-fed beef is one of the Top 7 Foods Experts WON'T EAT

Did you also know that Laura's Lean Beef is the only meat company to have its products recognized by both the Good Housekeeping Seal and the American Heart Association (AHA). The AHA’s Food Certification Program identifies products that meet the association’s food criteria guidelines for fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. The GH Seal and AHA HeartCheck are the most trusted consumer emblems, with 82% of people being more likely to purchase items carrying those certifications.

I myself have tried Laura's Pot Roast, 96% lean ground sirloin and a couple of steaks. I can't believe how delicious these products are considering they are sooo good for you.


The Pot Roast surprised me the most. I would never buy an already cooked pot roast because I like cooking and eating it myself. But, when I make it there is usually a large fatty piece of meat involved. With Laura's, the flavor was PERFECT and it was oh so tender. I served mine with green beans and a small baked potato. Dexter devoured his portion and asked for more!



The ground sirloin is also nothing less than fabulous. Ever since our diet started we have been eating burgers on a tri-weekly basis! Thats right, burgers! There is no need to sacrifice burgers when you are on a diet! My Mom bought me a Cuisinart griddle for Christmas and it makes the perfect burgers. We serve them on 100% whole grain 45 calorie Auntie Millie bread and serve with mustard, a little bit of light mayo and some pickles and onions! Talk about heavenly! Sometimes I love to mix a little A1 in with the meat to make it a little more flavorful without adding a bunch of calories!

Today is your lucky day because 3 winners will receive gift certificates good toward their purchase of Laura's Lean Beef! Who doesn't love free meat?! (lol I couldn't resist!)

There is a stuffed tomato with orzo and feta cheese that looks great. Much prefer stuffed tomato to peppers.

Laura's Lean beef is not grass fed. I've been to their CAFO lots in Kentucky and they're factory farmed and fed corn just like all the others. The only difference I saw was that they cleaned the cow feces out much faster and were far more liberal in their use of antibiotics on everything except for giving it to the cows in their food.
