Where’s the Beef?


Haven’t you heard? Beef is the new Salmon! Before you rush to your nearest grocery store and pick up some steaks for dinner, I’m not talking about your run of the mill cow. I’m talking about 100% grass fed, organic beef.

Grass feeding not only improves the quality of the beef, but alosm aces it more nutritious. Organic grass fed beef has been found rich in omega-3 fats, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and CLA.

The amount of fat in grass fed beef is also less. Studies have found it contains about the same amount of fat as skinless chicken breast. The cholesterol content of grass-fed beef is 22-39% lower than conventional beef. This also means fewer calories! In some areas, grass fed cows have 100% the daily requirement of omega-3. You will want to check with your local farms for specific Nutritional content. Here’s my list of favorite growers and restaurants they service:

Local Farms: Deep Creek Ranch, Deep Roots Meat, Lake Meadows Naturals, Grandmother’s Farm

Local Restaurants: Ravenous Pig, K Restaurant, Harmony Market, B&B Junction, Funky Monkey, JW Primo, Rusty Spoon
