Tis’ the Season for Grass-Fed Beef

Are you interested in where your meat comes from? Are you starting to ask questions?  Epitomized by Michael Pollen’s popular Omnivore’s Dilemma book, a movement is growing and calling for change. Cow’s stomachs evolved to eat grass, not grain. Pollen’s book illuminates the fact that grain-fed cows are sick and their meat is not as healthy as grass-fed varieties.

Put simply, we are meant to eat animals that eat green stuff. Greens contain omega-3s while grains contain omega-6s. We all know that we’re supposed to get more omega-3s. That is why were told to eat more seafood, because fish are out in the wild are eating all sorts of green stuff!  While grain-fed is the norm in North America, there are still many regions worldwide where that isn’t the case. For example, in Argentina all meat is grass-fed, so you can order a steak at a restaurant and know it’s the real deal.

So where can you get some?  Just let me know, I’ll be glad to share!

      Thanks Myra! I’m trying to educate as many people as I can. I want everyone to know we have local farmers in our area that are
      working hard to bring us clean, healthy foods. We do have choices. We don’t have to buy nasty meats and veggies from those big, industrial supermarkets!
