This recipe roundup features easy-to-make, healthy grilled meat recipes that are perfect for summer. I’ve also included tips and recommendations for where to buy the best organic meat and grass-fed beef online.
The outdoor grill is one of the best tools for making summer dinners. It is super simple to use and cooks full meals in a flash. Grilling food also has a great nutritional advantage, because excess fat melts and drips off of meat as you grill it. Use these delicious, healthy grilling recipes as inspiration for your meals this summer. If you want to make any of these recipes in the absence of warm weather, just use a grill pan in your kitchen instead!
Where to Get Grass-Fed & Organic Meat Online
I am a huge advocate of eating grass-fed, no-hormones-added and humanely-raised meat instead of conventional, factory-farmed meat. Grass-fed and organic meat is just so much more healthy, ethical, sustainable and flavorful than factory-farmed meat.
ButcherBox is a popular monthly meat delivery service that delivers organic, antibiotic- and hormone-free cuts directly to your door. Their meat selection includes 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef, grass-fed and pasture-raised bison, free-range chicken and heritage breed pork.
In addition, ButcherBox offers wild-caught and sustainably-harvested seafood, such as Alaskan sockeye salmon, halibut, cod, and lobster. The company also sells pre-made foods such as grass-fed beef burger patties, wild-caught salmon burgers and hot dogs that contain no nitrates, nitrites, artificial flavors or fillers. They also sell keto, paleo, and Whole30-approved bacon which is uncured, applewood-smoked and free of added sugar and nitrates.
The main reason why I love ButcherBox is because of the high quality of their meat. ButcherBox’s meat always tastes delicious and all of their animals are humanely-raised and naturally-fed. The meat arrives frozen and individually vacuum-packed in an insulated, eco-friendly box. The price works out to less than $6 per meal and the shipping is always free!
