Dinner Diva: Guide to Buying Grass-fed Beef

the-dinner-divaThe “best” beef hands down, is grass-fed beef. It’s the best options for a couple of reasons: it’s better for the earth and it’s better for your health and well-being.

It’s better for the earth because it produces better soil when you allow cattle to forage for their own food in a pasture, and improves water quality, along with plant life diversity. And as for your own health benefits, beef from grassfed cows means more vitamin A and E plus more omega-3 fatty acids that can lower high blood pressure, cholesterol, and helps fight against diabetes and cancer.

Where do you buy grass-fed beef? One of the best places of course is health food stores. Some grocery stores will actually carry it as well! If you really want to get local and fresh, check out localharvest.org to find a farm or local purveyor who might have some you can buy.

I do hope you find a local farmer who has grassfed beef. Get to know your farmer–ask him questions and find out about his farming practices and animal husbandry.

Remember, whenever you buy anything locally, whether it’s produce or meat, it’s always good to know the hands harvesting what you’re planning to consume.
