On the good-to-bad beef spectrum, *mostly* grass-fed is still waaaaaaayyyy better than conventional feedlot beef. We dont live in a world where we can all be perfect all the time, especially if we live in a big city. I say go for it!

Calf liver may be from veal, which wouldn't have yet had access to pasture/grass. As such, it's probably quite a bit lower in mineral content than beef liver from more mature animals.

Paleo gets a little too hung up on grass-fed and organic. Grass-fed is great, but 100% grass-fed isn't necessary - some grain is fine in a cow's diet. Even more is fine for chicken and pigs (they're not grazing animals, they forage.) Organic...... (more)

Grass fed meat has less fat. So by volume is has more protein. Protein is a lot more satiating than fat.
