So, this week, the only Friday Fast One I am doing is grass-fed beef.
Friday Fast One: Grass-fed meats have significantly fewer calories and significantly more nutrients than grain-fed. What this means to you: Most Americans can lose several pounds just by switching to grass-fed meats. It can help lower cholesterol, and provides important nutrients like Omegas and CLAs that are lacking in almost all our other foods these days.
If you live in or near Lynchburg and want the best, 100% pastured, 100% grass-fed, humane, and better-than-organic beef at a really great price, let me know in the next few days. We’re putting in an order to Pannill’s Gate, which is our definite preferred farm for all things beef, and you can get in on it!
Come on, don’t you just want to eat this face:
(yes, this is actually a photo of one of their cattle).
Seriously, though. People believe that it’s off-putting to see the beast you might be eating. I say that’s ridiculous. If you can’t admit it’s coming from an animal, become a vegan. One of the biggest problems we have in the US is that we are so very disconnected from our food, whether it’s meat or produce. If you don’t know where your food is coming from, that also means you have no clue what’s in it, or what’s been done to it. It’s been proven that the more connected people are with their food, the better eating choices they make.
Get connected. Visit a farm, or grow your own!
