What's the nutritional difference? How does the fatty acid profile differ? I'm sure someone can pull up a decent study - the USDA food database doesn't distinguish, of course.

I can't help you with the studies but I am assuming that you're interested just to see if pastured products are 'worth it' for you, and you want to see if you can back it up with peer reviewed science. I don't know about any 'studies', but... (more)

Are there any paleo folks in or around the Boston area who know a good source of pastured beef and chicken? So far I've been making a special trip to Wholefoods to get the good stuff, but I'd much rather go direct through a local farm,... (more)

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.

It's not cheap, but Trader Joe's carries grass fed and finished ground beef for $6.95 a pound. I like that we can buy it when we do our regular shopping--no special trip, mail order, etc. That's worth a few dollars a pound, IMHO.

What are the best eggs to buy? I know pastures and bug fed are ideal according to PaleoApproved. This raises the omega 3 ratio. Can't find bug fed eggs in NYC. But flaxseed fed pastured also have high omega 3. Discuss.
