The Benefits of Grass Fed Beef
We are quickly approaching cut-off day for the grass fed beef order through our office at Indian Creek Angus. After that, you will need to go directly to a source, or continue buying it from a local store. I do believe that it is worth it to splurge on hot dogs from Beyond Organic if you like eating hot dogs once in awhile (to purchase, go online to our site, click daily sprout, go to this article, and click the link above).
They have no nitrates or nitrites, they are loaded with everything that I am about to write about… Joy and Love! Seriously though, for about $1.50 a hot dog, these are worth every penny. I personally wouldn’t touch a hot dog out in the world unless it was a desperate move. Funny thing, neither would my girls.
– Brooke at Busch Gardens “What is the hot dog made of?” – Counter Lady “meat” – “What kind of meat” – “pork and beef” – “oh” …………. “thats not good. I want the salad”
So you really shouldn’t eat grain fed beef unless you are in a situation where it is all they have, or a special dinner and you are out at a restaurant and that is all you can get. I honestly mean you shouldn’t touch it. The grain fed beef has been shown to be deadly in all studies. As you look at documentary films like “forks over knives” have torn apart the animal product world. And they are true… when you consider the meat the traditional, conventional raised chicken (arsenic), beef (inflammatory heart disease causing fats), and fish (farm raised in toxic environments with toxic additives and no beneficial fat).
Dr. Newport has quickly popularized the idea that coconut oil will reverse Alzheimer’s Disease when she began to understand the mechanism of the disease, and realized that CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) was the key. She summed it all up with this statement:
“It appears to be a type of diabetes of the brain and it’s a process that starts happening at least 10 or 20 years before you start having symptoms and it’s very similar to type 1 or type 2 diabetes in that you develop a problem with insulin,” she explained.
Everything we have taught regarding diet for the last four years has been focused on this relationship. And now, we have come so far that we have seen diabetes reversed in many. CLA – it benefits the brain, it benefits the fat burning ability of the body, increasing leptin sensitivity, and it up-regulates a TUMOR SUPPRESSING GENE – PTPRG, thus having anti-cancer benefits that might just be more scientifically accounted for than any other anti-cancer food out there. I will definitely continually strive to eat more CLA in every place I can get it.
But I won’t supplement it. Many suppliers have come to market providing the CLA that you want, in a supplement form. BUT, a quick Google search yields these shopping results for CLA. The cheapest one (I don’t ever recommend cheap, as it usually involves China, and I would never involve China with something I am ingesting), tonalin, has a total of 90 gelcaps providing a total of mg of CLA. At $10-20 at different online retailers, I am getting a fat equivalent to an estimated 18 grams of CLA. It is estimated that I can get 8 grams of CLA from one pound of grass fed beef.
In addition, grass fed beef is RICH in Omega 3 fatty acids. AKA – Fish Oil! Over the last year, I have slowly reduced my fish oil supplementation to now only occur on days that I do not eat a significant combined proportion of: 1. Grass Fed Beef 2. Cheese from Grass Fed Cows 3. Milk Products from Grass Fed Cows (AMASAI) 4. Pasture Butter (from Grass Fed Cows)
If I eat enough of those, I save the fish oil pills. If at the end of the day, I fell short (three servings total, minimum), then I take my fish oil. This is a great way to insure I am rich in Omega-3 fats, without wasting a ton of money. Grass Fed beef is CHEAP in comparison to supplement shopping, and if it can be CLEAN as well, then we are on the right path. Indian Creek will treat a sick cow with antibiotics, but they don’t butcher those that have been recently treated, and they do not treat routinely. They have a ton of land, with beef just grazing freely. Beyond Organic is similar, yet they take any antibiotic treated cow, completely out of production.
The biggest step up that beyond organic gives, is that freedom from eating an animal ever treated. Both locations promise a 100% green-fed cow. Never grain finished, never grain started, but always grazing. This dietary change alone will change your life. And when you buy into a cow share through us, you will get the whole beef price, for less than a whole beef. At a 1/4 – 1/2 a beef, you will get an ample supply of steaks and roasts, ground beef and ribs. This is the way to go to get your name in the game of grass fed!
At the end of the month (assuming our shipment comes in) we have a ton of Beyond Organic hot dogs coming in. And we plan on having our Beach Party Healthy Spine Day with a hot dog cookout. We will be letting you sample the B.O. hot dogs on April 30th. Please take advantage of the $25 cost to get a friend in to have their spine checked. It is an awesome way to reach out to the world about health!
Be well, be blessed, and have a great weekend! – Dr. E
