WESTMINSTER, Colo.–January 17 is considered Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day, the day when most abandon their New Year’s resolutions. Panorama Organic Grass-Fed Meats® is here to help get over this hump with incentives and support through February to keep shoppers on track with the second annual #GrassfedChallenge. Seeking to highlight the benefits of organic, grass-fed beef as part of a healthy and environmentally friendly diet, the social media campaign offers discounts, promotions, recipes, shopping lists, encouragement along with a contest and giveaways.
With the unprecedented demand for of organic, grass-fed meat during the pandemic, more people are learning about the benefits. According to Nielsen’s Trends to Watch, the continued “food as medicine” movement is growing; IRI data (Power of Meat 2021) indicated organic meat sales were up 22% and grass-fed by over a third. In addition, 79% of internet users use blogs and social media to make decisions about what foods to try1 and 82% of the US population uses some form of social media2.
According to registered dietician Victoria Seaver of EatingWell, “Protein does your body a lot of good. It builds healthy cells and repairs ones that are damaged, keeps your immune system in tip-top shape and it helps you to feel fuller for longer after a meal.” Grass-fed beef delivers more nutrients and aids in supplemental weight loss. Grass-fed beef has 60% more Omega-3’s, 2x more vitamin A & E, 3x more conjugated linoleic acid (reduces heart disease), less (total) monosaturated fat and a higher concentration of (good) unsaturated fats than conventionally raised beef.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) say that almost half of US adults are dieting at any given time, and January is traditionally the highest diet month. Panorama Organic’s #GrassfedChallenge is designed to make healthy eating easier with information on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“With Omicron and the fierce winter weather, many of us are seeking foods to prepare at home that are both highly nutritious and great tasting. Those same foods and purchases can directly affect the livelihood of U.S. ranchers and the health of our planet. For January and February, we have enlisted our partners in a social media #GrassfedChallenge campaign to include Panorama’s organic, non-GMO, grass-fed beef – that nourishes our body and planet, as part of a healthy diet,” said Kay Cornelius, general manager of Panorama Organic Grass-Fed beef.
