Why grass fed beef?

Although the image of a cow often includes luscious grass blades and acres of farmland, that is not always the case. Most Vancouver grocery stores now carry grain-fed beef: made from cows nourished with distasteful food combinations, such as corn and protein supplements. As one can imagine, these cows experience absurdly rapid growth, allowing the cows to reach market weight and be butchered at a very young age. For most Vancouverites, this concept is unpleasant, adding to the already cloudy moral dilemma surrounding modern food production. There, is however, an obvious and traditional alternative: 100% Grass fed beef.


This cattle utopia has many significant advantages, including serious health benefits. Firstly, grassfed beef is leaner, given that it is lower in overall fat and in saturated fat. However, this meat doesn't skimp out on the good stuff, providing a bounty of omega-3 fats, more commonly known as fatty acids. This nutritional gem is also associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke, among many other dietary perks. These advantages are even visible to the human eye, as grass fed beef shows minimal marbling, evidence of little unwanted fat.  

On the contrary, grain fed cows are commonly raised on large feedlots and have ambiguous diets, where they often ingest hormones, drugs and antibiotics to further accelerate growth. So along with unessential fats, grain fed cows contain camouflaged ingredients simply not meant for human or animal consumption. Whereas with grass fed beef, the contents are straightforward, the only ingredient being natural beef. Better yet, grassfed beef, along with all the associated health benefits, is accessible and convenient, with Meatme.
