Those of you that know me understand how passionate I am about great food from great organic sources and I’m a bargain hunter to boot so . . . I just purchased by second side of beef from a local farmer who operates an outstanding operation of grass fed beef. His animals are humanely cared for and actually have a pretty sweet life. No industrial slop pens for them. They graze on organic pasturelands, which results in healthy natural omega 3 fatty acids in the meat. There is roughly 150 mg of omega 3 fat in a 4 ounce serving of grass fed beef. That’s equivalent or greater than the amount of omega 3 fat you would get from eating tilapia, cod, haddock, yellowfin tuna, orange roughy, scallops, crab, lobster of shrimp.

 

The special added bonus is that there are no chemicals in this meat. No antibiotics, no hormones, no inhumane suffering.

 

Many grass fed operations feed their animals grains the last 4 weeks before “harvest” in an effort to fatten them up. The problem with this process is that eating the grain for a month causes a dramatic decline, losing 80% of the healthy omega 3 fatty acid content.
