#StraightTalkonSteak

National Nutrition Month

Did you know that there was a National Nutrition Month? I didn’t!

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. 

In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Omaha Steaks, the nation’s leading purveyor of exceptional grain-fed beef and gourmet foods, announced the launch of #StraightTalkonSteak, an effort to share the good news about beef and nutrition facts you should know. Leading health authorities, including the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and American Dietetic Association advocate that lean meat can and should be part of a healthy diet.

Well, being from Texas I completely agree that meat should be part of a healthy diet. My family and I really, really enjoy a bacon wrapped filet mignon. Although I do not think that is what they mean when they say “lean meat”.

Some of the lean meat options I found on Omaha Steaks are:

Yellowfin Tuna Steaks

Wild Salmon Fillets

Flat Iron Steak

Beef Sirloin Tips

Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast

They even have fresh vegetables that they can pair with your meats!

Have Omaha Steaks Deliver to you on Vacation

What I like to do is order a value bundle or meats and veggies when we are going on vacation to be delivered to our unit. We usually stay in a timeshare and have a kitchen. Even if you only have a fridge most hotels have a grill. This can be a great way to:

  • save money eating on vacation
  • eat healthier on vacation.
