Grass Fed Beef Nutrition 

Working within a traditional diet, we save a large portion of our grocery budget for quality meat and dairy. It’s a harsh reality, but they do carry a hefty price tag. Unless, of course, you live on a farm and can buy your own cow, you’re going to fork over some hard earned cash for these products. We’re hopeful this post will shed some light on ways to lessen the financial burden while choosing the highest quality food for your family.

Strolling through the meat department at the grocery store can make anyone’s head start to spin. The choices seem endless, where does one even begin?

I used to stop looking at words and just look for the best price tag, then toss the meat into my cart and call it a day. These days, I’m looking for quality, but seeing $9.99 for one pound of pasture-raised ground beef makes my head spin! Does anyone else feel the same? Which leads to the question…

Is Grass-Fed Really Best?

In short, YES! But at almost three times the cost, I’m guessing you’ve wondered how much better while staring at all those packages of beef.
