2. Corn Fed Beef

Most farmers won’t eat their own corn fed beef. Why? Cows were meant to eat grasses. Livestock owners now feed them corn and soybean to fatten the animals much more quickly.

When you look at a recent study done by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University, they discovered that the meat from grass fed cows is higher in many vitamins, including beta carotene, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, omega 3 oils, not to mention lower in saturated fats.

The truth is most farmers keep another herd in a pasture, free ranging and grass eating, for their own consumption!

Your alternative? Shop around and look for grass fed beef. It’s usually found in most health food stores, including Whole Foods. If you don’t see it at your store, ask the butcher.
