We value our customers and appreciate your kind reviews. Recently, Rick Conklin commented, “I have lived in New York, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and spent many trips in between all of them trying brats and sausages from coast to coast. One thing for sure, and it’s something I can swear to, Grand Champion sausages are by far, the BEST I have ever had ANYWHERE in the country!”

The Benefits of Eating Meat

Beef. Chicken. Salmon. Turkey. Yep, there are tons of great-tasting and nutritious meats to add to the dinner plate.

Now, we all know that good health involves a balanced diet - including protein. And, meat is definitely the best way to get that protein!

That’s not to say all meats are created equal. When prepared improperly, undercooked, or overly processed, some meats can be unhealthy. But, when you do it right, eating meat adds a great deal to your overall health.

With that said, here are some great reasons to make meat part of your daily diet

It’s nutritious. Meat is loaded with things your body needs, including vitamins D, B1, B2, B6, B12 and niacin, as well as minerals iron, zinc, selenium and more. Many of these essential nutrients just can’t be retained from a diet of fruits, veggies and carbs. For a more in depth look into what vitamins, minerals and proteins can be found in each type of meat, refer to this chart.

It’s the ultimate protein factory. As previously mentioned, the amino acids known as Protein serve as major building blocks for our muscles and other bodily tissues. Most athletes and coaches agree that with a more active lifestyle, you’re definitely going to need to fortify your body with ample amounts of protein.

It’s delicious. Let’s get serious here. Can you imagine breakfast without sausage or bacon? A football game without a burger or brat? A fancy dinner without steak or salmon? In our opinion, meat makes the meal!

It’s not deserving of a bad rap. It is true that vegans and vegetarians tend to have better health than most, but that fact is born of lots of reasons  - many having nothing to do with their lack of meat consumption. For one, vegetarians tend to be more health conscious overall. Most of the food they buy is unprocessed and organic, and many of them are more likely to exercise regularly. They’re also less likely to smoke or invite harmful chemicals into their bodies. Carnivores - take a note. It’s been proven that people who eat meat and also live a healthy lifestyle are just as healthy as people who don’t.
