Laura's Lean Beef Has Heart For Healthy Consumer

Laura Freeman
improving the quality of beef sold in the U.S.

I'm proud to introduce you to a company completely dedicated to providing excellent selections of nutritious and healthy meats to help you along on your low-carb lifestyle. For the past two decades, Lexington, Kentucky-based Laura's Lean Beef has been doing just that.

Led by founder, president and CEO Laura Freeman, this company has committed to de-modernize the way beef is manufactured in America. With the fast-paced society we live in where everything has to be done yesterday, Freeman and her company take a different philosophy when it comes to producing and providing the very best foods for consumers.

That's why she started Laura's Lean Beef to bring cattle farming back to its roots prior to the days of lightning fast breeding brought on by such unhealthy procedures as antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and herbicides.

"As a family farmer, it bothered me to see agriculture moving to bigger and bigger industrial-farm operations," Freeman explained. "I became concerned about the widespread use of antibiotics and growth hormones. And the more I studied the subject, the more convinced I became that natural farming methods, not chemicals, were the best way to farm."

Freeman believes her methods for cattling beef are healthier and better to bring quality meats to the public in the quantities they want without sacrificing the essential deliberate process that goes into making the finest cuts of beef. And for those concerned about the treatment of cattle, Freeman is adamant that her livestock are treated humanely throughout the process of being raised.

Laura's Lean Beef brand is currently available nationwide in over 4,700 popular grocery stores in 44 states and is widely known as "the healthy beef." As the leader in the lean beef industry, Freeman realizes she has a responsiblity to serve as an example for other companies to follow.

"More and more people want beef that's lower in fat, without fillers and additives," Freeman said. "The desire for safer, healthier, better-tasting food isn't just a trend."

She's exactly right. The beef consumer demands more and that's what Laura's Lean Beef delivers!

With annual sales surpassing $100 million in 2005, Laura's Lean Beef is providing Americans with exactly what they want and desire: tendery, juicy cuts of lean beef to help them live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Especially for those of us who are livin' la vida low-carb, a company that cares about what they are serving like this one certainly deserves our support.

Just a sampling of what you can find from Laura's Lean Beef include, 92% Lean Ground Beef, 96% Lean Ground Round, Strip Steak, Ribeye Steak, Sirloin Steak, Flank Steak, Top Round Roast and Steak, Eye of Round Roast and Steak, Sirloin Tip Roast and Steak, Tenderloin as well as fully cooked entrees such as Shredded Beef in Barbecue Sauce, Beef Pot Roast au Jus, and the newest selection 92% Lean Frozen Patties.

Mmmm mmmm, I can smell the sizzling aroma of these meats already as they tickle up my nose and send my olfactory senses into overload. Zip zip zimma zimma, WOW! I had better get to grilling and quick before I hurt something. LOL!

Just in case you are wondering, Laura's Lean Beef is raised on natural grains and grasses and NONE of the cows are injected with harmful growth hormones or antibiotics as they are being raised. Also, there are no added fillers, additives, water or salt in this beef. In other words, this is the real McCoy when it comes to tasty and healthy beef.

"That explains another strong appeal of Laura's Lean Beef," Freeman added. "Our beef isn't just leaner and all natural -- it tastes better."

For those consumers who cannot find Laura's Lean Beef in their area, the company's founder has a special message for you.

"Laura's Lean Beef owes much of its success to people who have let their grocers know they want lean beef raised without growth hormones and antibiotics -- people who have requested our beef by name," Freeman noted. "Our customers and our company share a commitment to sustainable family farms, naturally raised foods, and a healthier future."

If you care about your health (and obviously you do since you read my blog), then make it a priority to be very selective about what kind of beef you put in your mouth. Demand quality. Expect the best. Choose Laura's Lean Beef.

You can get more information about Laura's Lean Beef at or check out Laura Freeman's personal blog that she just created this week at (you'll want to read how she is surviving after a painful horse trampling accident last year in her first blog post).

"If you asked me a few months ago what I knew about blogs, I would have said 'what's that?,'" Freeman said. "It turns out that a blog is short for weblog, which is like an online journal - and I've started writing one! So now you'll get to know me as a real person and not just as 'the girl on the label.'"

So, pay Laura Freeman a visit and be sure to tell her "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man" Jimmy Moore sent you. :)

Beefy, beefy, beefy -- me like me like! :)

I agree with getting a higher quality beef, but I don't know if that specifically means Laura's Lean Beef. I have tried LLB previously (Super Target carries them, which OT is the best place to shop for deals in the meat department with $3 off coupons), and found it not as flavorful as my local grocery store butcher. I am still blest to have a good meat department locally that puts the big box stores to shame. The reason: the fat. The flavor in most beef is in the marbling (fat) within the muscle. Less marbling equals less flavor. LLB is certainly better than anything found @ Wal-mart, but unfortunately for they have fallen in love with fat equals bad argument, which as any low carber knows that generality is the furtherest thing from the truth.

One other comment - small portions... It seems that LLB cuts their portions with smaller people in mind. Perhaps, it is just my local Target selection of LLB, but most of their individual steak portions are small 4-6oz at the largest. I know I could purchase two of them to equate a meal, but that doesn't escape the thin cut which usually mean a good grilling cut of meat. You need a bit of steak depth to get a good sear while leaving the inside still full of flavor and juicy inside.

Hmmm...Albertsons here carries it. I almost never shop there, but it's something to keep in mind. And with Safeway discontinuing all the low-carb stuff they used to carry, who knows?

I try to get fairly lean beef because otherwise my calories add up way too fast leaving me starving long before the next meal.
