Hello to all my registered dietitian nutritionist friends! I am so excited to announce that on behalf of the New York Beef Council I am hosting the Bold Taste of Nutrition Beef Recipe Contest!

If you’ve visited the Nutritioulicious blog or follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and/or Twitter, I’m sure you have seen some of the beef recipes I’ve developed over the years, including this Hearty Beef and Vegetable Stew, my Chipotle Beef Tacos with Watermelon Salsa (which are a huge hit with my girls), and this Summer Steak Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette (which is especially delicious during the hot summer months)! There’s no shortage of love for lean beef here at Nutritioulicious – after all, it’s a nutritious and delicious choice to fill the protein portion of your plate.

And that’s why I’m stoked to head up this beef recipe contest, so I can see all the amazing ways you showcase lean beef on your plate as part of a healthy diet! So what exactly does this Bold Taste of Nutrition contest entail? Keep reading for the details, including recipe submission criteria, the awesome prizes up for grabs, and of course how you can participate. (Get the complete contest rules here.)
