Lean Meat Options for the Conscientious Consumer.
Through our work with Good Life Premium Meats and NebraskaBison.com, we have established a commitment to making top quality, naturally raised meats more widely available throughout the United States.
Each of the three meats we now offer: Premium Naturally Raised Elk, 100% Grass-Fed Organic Beef and Premium Naturally Raised Bison are held to the highest standards of quality.
To help introduce you to each of these options, we've highlighted some key points for each of the three meats in this post below.
Obviously when we're talking about lean and healthy meats and proteins, nutrition is going to be a good place to start. Each of these meats (particularly the Elk and Bison) are of course considered to be among the leanest meats available. However, let's go ahead and take a look at how they compare nutritionally among themselves.
The chart below compares Ground Burger for each of the three meats we carry: Elk, Grass-Fed Organic Beef and Bison. The Elk Burger is 91% lean, Grass-Fed Organic Beef Burger is 85% lean and the Bison Burger is 90% lean.
Now, obviously, the Ground Burger is one of the fattier cuts of meat. Let's take a look at how each of these meats stand in leaner cuts of steak. The Grass-Fed Beef and Bison take a look at the Top Sirloin while the Elk is our "Ranch Steak" which is cut from the round (which is near the sirloin).
As you can see from these two charts, all three meats perform very well on the nutrition scale. Elk and Bison which are two famously lean proteins outshine the Grass-Fed Organic Beef as expected by containing less fat, calories and sodium.
