About 150 years ago, farmers began feeding their herds substantial amounts of grain. The grass fed meats that our ancestors ate were considerably different nutritionally from most of the meat now consumed in America. Returning to a diet of pasture-raised meats will provide numerous valuable nutritional benefits.
Benefit 1: Saturated Fat
Grass fed meats contain significantly less saturated fat compared to grain-fed meats…. 53% less bad saturated fats compared with grain-fed beef, according to recent studies. Nutritionists, including our own nutritionist at Beetnik, strongly recommend that we reduce the amount of saturated fats in our diet. Decades of research show that high amounts of saturated fat in the diet, increases the risk of coronary heart disease.
