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)

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.

There is this product by Amazing Grass called Amazing Meal (Chocolate Infusion) I typically used this as a protien drink before/after WODs. However, I am trying to be Paelo and I was curious if this product is Paleo friendly?

If I can't afford to buy grass fed beef, I don't buy beef...I've done way too much research on feedlot cattle to compromise, more than just occasionally...If I was at someone's house for dinner I would eat it and keep my mouth shut.

PUFA is very low (fractions of a gm) for bison and beef regardless. It's not an efficient source of Omega 3's. It's the balance of O6/O3 that is desirable in Grass Fed meat, it's less biased toward O6. From the USDA NAL Database: Bison,... (more)

What does good grass-fed butter taste like? I bought some grass-fed for the first time (Pastureland unsalted) and it has a flavor I can't stomach. Should it taste strongly of grass? It's a very cowy flavor.
