What’s all this talk about Grass-fed beef?

For years, we have let the Beef industry feed us an inferior protein from grain-fed cows because it is cheaper and easier to process.  What they do not tell you is how much you are missing out on when you choose grain-fed over grass-fed.  

Let's just look at a couple of comparisons between the two:

The calorie count: If you are on a calorie restricting diet, you will be glad to know that grass-fed beef has less calories than a grain-fed beef.  Example, for a 6oz steak, the grass-fed has 100 fewer calories than that of a grain-fed steak. (This is what we mean when we say lean meats).  

Fats, good and bad: Grass-fed beef is on the same line of healthy eating as skinless chicken.  Grass-fed has half to one-third less fat than that of grain-fed.  In fact, it has about the same amount of fat as a skinless chicken.  Being that it is a more lean meat, it helps lower your LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol).  

Omega 3’s: That’s right, it’s not just in fish.  Grass-fed beef contains two to six times more Omega 3’s than grain-fed.  The little moo-moo’s get their Omega 3’s from the green, green grass they eat on a daily basis.  Sure, a grain-fed cow will have some Omega 3’s.  But, the longer the cow is in a feed lot, the lower the level of Omega 3’s.

These are just a few benefits from consuming grass-fed beef instead of grain-fed.  Now here is a question for you.  Are you interested in ordering some grass-fed beef?  We are considering placing a chest freezer at the new gym and stocking it with steaks, roasts, and ground beef from a local ranch.
