I keep hearing a lot of negative feedback on the grass fed beef from whole foods. I actually 2 speicifc commentsd from this site- one was saying that whole foods grass fed doesnt taste "right" compared to other grass fed, and another comment... (more)
I am just skeptical of the "grass fed" label at any large store, just like "organic". It is not precisely defined or regulated, and the stores know that it is good for marketing, so they tend to blur and corrupt the meaning of it so that they can... (more)
http://www.certified-organic-beef.com/ everything looks good, grass fed/finished pasture, organic, yada yada yada. But then why is only classified as step 4 and not step? What are they missing that is making then unable to achieve the step 5... (more)
You do realize that if the cows are pastured and free range, there is a 100% chance that they are eating wheat and other grains/seeds of grasses when in season, right? Advice: stop worrying about this so much.
I can't find 100% grass fed cows' milk in or around Charlotte NC. I can't even find any store that will special order it. Not Whole Foods and not Earth Fare. Any suggestions? Thank you.
I'm looking for a place to buy grass fed beef. I recent reply to one of my questions raised the point that paying the freight to ship cross country may be worth it compared to my local pricing here in New Jersey. Would you mind telling me where... (more)
I'm 15 and have adopted the primal lifestyle! I get organic meat and organic free-range eggs, but I'm pretty sure they're fed 'organic cereals' and 'organic wheat'. Can I get pastured meat/eggs in supermarkets or do I need to nag my parents to buy... (more)
Apologies as this is not a question but hopefully an answer. I am a farmer in Cornwall and sell my grass fed beef nationwide. I have been using the same farming practices from my father and grandfather and am only now learning how beneficial our... (more)
Hello! Instead of reviving an old post with a #norway tag, I decided to make a new one to share some news. The grocery store / super market chain Rema 1000 has launched a product line ("Pampas") that includes fresh grass fed beef from Urugay.... (more)
I've been studying low carb diets for years, but 20 days ago I finally decided to definitely change my eating habits and now I'm full paleo. At first, in order to not feel overwhelmed, I ignored omega 3 to omega 6 ratios and postponed my decision... (more)
So, I want to diversify my animal eating(currently consuming mostly grass fed beef from a side of beef), and a local farm sells pork sides, but he grain feeds(with local VT grain) his pigs. Should I pass, or go for it since it's a local... (more)
If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.
It's about $10 a lb more expensive and doesn't taste as good as the stuff I get from Fresh Market or The Meat Store. Are the benefits that much better for me nutritionally that I need to go to the extra trouble to order it online, pay more money,... (more)
Are there big differences between grass-fed and your regular old stuff? Yes. Is it worth it? I can't answer that for you. It depends on finances, priorities, etc. I always get grass-fed only, but we all are in different places and see things... (more)
Particularly, I am looking for bison omega 3/omega 6 raw numbers (not just the ratio) I am looking for mgs of omega 3 and omega 6 and any other differences in nutrition (minerals, CLA's) if you guys have any links or references that you use to... (more)
I just got my quarter of grass fed beef and asked specifically for suet so I can make tallow. Now I have the challenge of figuring out the best way of going about it. Anybody make their own? Feel free to post links or videos that will help me... (more)
I see Whole Foods having a one day sale on grass fed beef at 4.99/lb on Sept 2nd http://blog.wholefoodsmarket.com/2011/08/one-day-sale-ground-beef/ never have purchased from Whole Foods,...(just out of the way for me) Have you? have you liked... (more)
You should by from U.S. Wellness Meats instead: http://www.grasslandbeef.com USWM actually supports and promotes the paleos lifestyle, they were at the AHS giving out free meat snacks, and have weekly newsletter columns. WholeFoods discourages... (more)
Since federal law in the US requires cows to be grass fed (pastured) at least 4 months out of the year, a company can be slick with their labeling and say "grass fed". Maybe as a community we can all start advocating for % of grass fed to be labeled. (more)
Rather than looking for USDA-certified grassfed labeling, look for certification from the American Grassfed Association. All AGA-certified livestock is fed a diet of grass and forage from weaning until harvest and is raised exclusively on pasture.... (more)
Does anyone else get a fair amount of meat "scum" when they cook up grassfed ground beef? Is the scum blood that is still on the meat? It doesnt bother me but i definitely dont enjoy eating it and it would be interesting to hear peoples thoughts... (more)
It's just albumin, a protein, plus a little blood and fat and usually whatever else may be on the outside of your meat. It just looks gross and won't hurt you :) Just skim it off if you don't like it. This usually occurs more when you're making a... (more)
I live in Dubai and now we can buy grass fed beef in the supermarkets, however the organ meat is very unlikely to be grass fed, and if it is they do not say it is. I want to get more liver and heart in my diet, but would i be wasting my time... (more)
So I might be relocating out of state to Florida and whilst my lifestyle might change, I don't want my diet to! So is anyone here from Florida, especially West Florida, and where do you get your meat from? I wouldn't mind going to farms, but a... (more)
I couldn't find an answer to this in the other threads so I would like some opinions. What would be better? A Raw Milk Organic Cheese that is not grass fed or a Grass Fed Organic Cheese that is not raw. That seems to be my choice locally.
I had a concept for a paleo friendly burger joint that I was thinking about for fun. You would have a choice of grass-fed beef, bison, or venison burger with simple salt and pepper seasoning. I know places like McDonalds season with MSG. Either... (more)
Another whey protein question I know. Has anyone else tried it? The ingredients listed are: whey protein concentrate, cocoa, gum acacia, and stevia. Obviously the last two are the least desirable. It tastes pretty good and is the cheapest grass... (more)
I am going to be donating blood later tomorrow and was wondering on your opinions regarding being fasted or fed when I do it? I will be very well hydrated (as always) but I will be giving it around 3-4 hours after I have woken so I normally... (more)
I wonder why? The eggs I got from the farmer's market didn't cause acne, while the omega-3 free range eggs at my grocery probably did (but not sure). I tried grass fed meat from the farmer's market AND whole foods. They both taste superior to... (more)
Hello! I may be the most cautious food prep girl in the world, but I am REALLY hoping I havent completely ruined two pounds of grass fed beef (ground). So, I am going to ask this in hopes of somebody making me feel confident that all is well and... (more)
