Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend recovering from all of that clean paleo food that you ate during Thanksgiving! There is alot of conversations on whether or not there is a difference between Grass fed beef/meat & Grain fed beef/meat. There is a big nutrition benefit to eating grass fed though, although many people say that grain fed tastes better.

Ten Reasons to Eat Grass fed Beef

  1. Lower in total fat
  2. Higher in beta-carotene
  3. Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
  4. Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
  5. Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium
  6. Higher in total omega-3s
  7. A healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs 4.84)
  8. Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
  9. Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
  10. Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease
