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 to buy grass fed beef. Two days ago I decided it was time to make these adjustments and went looking for grass fed beef. To my surprise I found out that pretty much all the red meat I eat is already grass fed, since 80% of Brazil's cattle (I'm Brazilian)is grass fed, in the state where I live it's pretty much 100%.
They still get tons of antibiotics and hormones but it's better than grain fed antibiotics ridden beef.
So, if you can't find/afford grass fed beef one option is to look for meat imported from Brazil, since there is a great chance that this meat will be grass fed.
I hope that helps someone.
Bom dia BSBL!
I visited Uruguay last year and know that their cattle is required by federal law to be 100% grass fed and hormone-free. I have also seen people on this board who live in the US report they have purchased beef imported from Uruguay.
I think pretty much anywhere in South America the cattle is raised this way. I went to Uruguay for a week, ate nothing but beef and ducle de leche and lost 2lbs!
As far as I know, Argentinian beef is grass-fed too. Unsure if by law and about the use of hormones/antibiotics there. But if the cows are raised on pasture they don't need these drugs, especially the antibiotics.
I was in BA twice this year and gorged on meat every damned day. Soooo tasty. But I couldn't bring myself to sample from the huge platter of innards that was ordered by our party on my last day, aside from the sweetbreads which were... interesting.
Indeed, in this country (USA), churrasco made with conventional beef is despicable. My daughter was long a meat hater (not anymore since we buy grass fed), but when in Brazil she would always ask me to take her for churrasco (worked there 8 months and visited numerous other times). As far as I can tell all meat there is grass fed, even in Rio.
