I just read this article today that was published in 2012 and although it is three years old I think it still has some very good points. I really wanted to share this article with all of you because I feel that it is important to really understand where are food is coming from and how it is produces.
What struck me most in this article was what he wrote about organic vs grass fed. I have always felt comfortable purchasing certified organic beef from the grocery store until now. I never really thought about what organic cows eat, have you? Unfortunately it's mostly organic grain which is still just as inhumane as non-organic feed.
Through all of my research in the last year on this subject and visiting beautiful small grass fed/grass finished cattle farms, I learned the importance of why cattle need to eat grass. This article will explain it so I will not go into it, but I have now realized that buying organic beef from the store will no longer be on my grocery list.
Please keep in mind this is one mans point of view and thoughts, take what you believe is true to you and dig deeper. Link to article The truth about Grassfed Beef
Less is more and quality over quantity is what I believe is balanced and the right thing for me and my family!
