Last week we touched on the importance of "real foods" and our commitment to making them accessible to you. This week we share some of the reasons that grass-fed meats are beneficial for your health.
Not only is grass-fed meat good for you it tastes great too! Our featured category for the week is the very popular Steaks
category. We hope you will try one of the many delicious selections. Some of our most popular cuts are the NY strips
, Flank Steak
, or Sandwich Steaks
Did you know ...
In 2009, there was a joint research project between the USDA and Clemson University in which they determined several key areas where grass-fed meats surpass grain-fed meats for nutrition. These areas included
- Higher content of Omega-3s
- Better ratio of Omega 6 to Omega-3
- Higher in CLAs (believed to be cancer fighters)
- Higher concentrations of some B vitamins, and the essential minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium
- Higher in Vitamin E and beta-carotene.
In addition to the higher nutritional content of the meats, it is well known that meat from animals raised on a natural grassland diet don't contain growth hormones, and antibiotics.

A Walk Around the Office Good for Your Health

Across the country, many employees are seated at desks for the majority of an eight-hour workday. As technology creates an increase in sedentary lifestyles, the impact of sitting on vascular health is a rising concern. Now, researchers have found that when a person sits for six straight hours, vascular function is impaired -- but by walking for just 10 minutes after a prolonged period of sitting, vascular health can be restored.

Fabulous way to incorporate liver into the diet in an easy on-the-go measure. It's very versatile and not overpowering in its "liveriness". It's actually delicious! Highly recommended.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
- salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp rice flour, divided (cassava or coconut flour okay)
- 3 tbsp ghee or butter, divided
- 1 shallot, diced
- 8 oz white mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp ground mustard
- 1 pinch ground allspice
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 tbsp sour cream (coconut cream okay)
- chopped parsley to garnish
Pat the steak strips dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Toss with 1 tbsp flour to give the pieces a light dusting.
- Heat 2 tbsp ghee in a large skillet (stainless steel or cast iron preferred over a non-stick skillet ) over medium high heat until shimmering, about 2 minutes. Add the steak and pan-fry in batches to avoid overcrowding the skillet, until each side develops a nice crust, about 2 minutes per side. Set steak aside.
- Reduce heat to medium, then add the remaining 1 tbsp ghee and the shallots. Saute until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes, stirring often. Add mushrooms and saute until they start to release their liquid, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until aromatic, about 30 seconds.
- Add the ground mustard, ground allspice, and remaining 1 tbsp flour to the mixture, then toss until evenly distributed and aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the wine and broth; stir and simmer until it starts to thicken, about 1 minute, then add the steak and any accumulated juices. Simmer until steak is warmed and the sauce is about as thick as gravy, about 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed, then garnish with chopped parsley and serve with rice or egg noodles.
