That’s the question that everyone seems to ask. How much better is grass fed meat for you than regular meat? How much healthier is grass fed meat? Are there advantages to grass fed meat.
Before we get into that, we need to discuss why one would look to purchase grass fed meat over regular, old grocery store meat.
For starters, animals were originally fed grass and life was lovely. We didn’t have diseases like diabetes and obesity and cancer that are so prevalent in society today. That happened when we made the switch to grain (CORN, since the CORN industry makes bank!).
Grain is so hard on a animals system that they have to feed high amount of antibotics just to keep them safe. As a result, their pH becomes acidic. This leads to increased amount of bacteria in our food.
And that’s just a short summary of the problem caused by feeding animals grain without bringing up all the bloating and GI issues caused by corn allergies.
What are some more advantages of grass fed meat?
Let’s compare a grass fed steak with a grain fed steak.
The grain fed steak has nearly DOUBLE the amount of fat as the grass fed steak. That’s why beef isn’t healthy for us. You can buy all the 95% lean ground beef that you want, it’s still not healthy.
Grass fed meat is lower in total fat and saturated fat but it also provides more omega-3 fats per serving. Grain fed meat contains only about 15-50% of the omega-3’s that grass fed meat does.
CLA, a healthy fat , that in human trials, has shown some promising potential benefits for reducing cancer tumors. In animal studies, it is shown to be very effective for lowering body fat but we have yet to see that in humans. CLA is found in high amounts (varies by the type of meat) in grass fed meat.
Lastly, another advantage of grass fed meat, is that it typically contains 1/3 less calories than it’s grain fed comparison.
Listen, at the end of the day we know that the statement “you are what you eat” is 100% true. So what are you eating?
