Butcher Box: Grass-Fed Vs Grain-Fed Beef
For a moment, think of grass-fed cows as four-legged lawn mowers. This means instead of being cooped up in small spaces eating all day, they are always on the move, grazing in green pastures.
Exercise leads to more muscle tone and leaner cattle. And the resulting beef? Well it’s chewier, contains less fat, is rich in heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, and the flavor is more varied than the typical grocery store cuts of beef that come from corn-raised cows.
Farmers first made the switch from grass to corn years ago because corn allows them to fatten up their cattle faster. But these animals are not healthy! And when we eat animals that are not healthy – we become unhealthy!
If you want to change the food industry, your body, and get healthy you have to make the commitment to stop eating factory farmed meat.
