Grass Fed vs Grain Fed

The way cows are fed and raised has a major effect on the nutrient composition of the beef. Cattle today are often fed grains, however the animals we ate throughout evolution roamed free and ate grass. The nutrients in beef can vary depending on what the cows eat – it’s not only important what we eat, it’s also matters what the foods that we eat, ate. When we switch from grain-fed to grass-fed meat we are simply returning to the diet of our ancestors, the diet that is most in harmony with our physiology. Every cell and every system of our bodies will function better when we eat products from animals raised on grass.

Heres a few of the reasons why I choose grass-fed beef:

  • Grass-fed beef is naturally leaner than grain-fed beef.
  • Grass-fed beef has an optimal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats (3:1.)
  • Grass-fed beef is loaded with other natural minerals and vitamins, plus it’s a great source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) a fat that reduces the risk of cancer, obesity, diabetes, and a number of immune disorders.
  • Beef, in its natural grass-fed state, is a health food of the highest order.
