Not all meat is equally nutritious! To maintain a balanced diet, it’s important to choose lean options. Lower in fat and cholesterol and packed with B vitamins, zinc and iron, these five protein powerhouses will fuel your body and your taste buds.

  1. Verde 93% Lean Ground Beef

    Verde beef is made from 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised cattle that have never been given antibiotics or hormones. Their 93% lean ground beef is quick and easy to use and full of selenium, phosphorus and vitamin B12, making it a nutritious choice for any meal.
  2. Pork Tenderloin

    When shopping for lean pork, look for keywords like “loin” and “chop.” The pork tenderloin is great grilled or roasted in the oven and is an excellent source of thiamin, phosphorus and B6. For the leanest pork, ask our butchers to remove the excess fat before bringing it home.
  3. Skinless Chicken Breast

    While all skinless chicken is considered lean, breast meat is lower in calories and fat than thighs, legs and wings. Because the breast meat is so lean, leaving the skin on when cooking is a great way to keep the meat from drying out. Just be sure to remove it before eating!
  4. Schnucks Garden Turkey Burgers

    Schnucks garden turkey burgers are crafted with fresh ground turkey and a variety of vegetables. Not to mention they are full of beneficial nutrients like vitamin C, iron and phosphorus. Try topping with fresh veggies and a toasted whole wheat bun for a well-balanced meal.
  5. Lean Beef Roasts

    With less than 4 grams total fat and less than 2 grams saturated fat per serving, this is one of the leanest beef roasts you can buy. Packed with zinc, B12 and selenium, top round is best cooked slow and low. Look for words like “loin” or “round” for additional lean cuts of beef.
