The Case for Grass Fed Beef

Eatwild.com is a great resources if you are looking for more information about a variety of health/organic living related subjects. Most recently I came across their articles about Grass Fed meat, and the argument as to why we should support the grass fed movement.

If you are just beginning to explore the idea of grass fed meat, the site has a great overview of grass fed basics. It is a great place to start to learn about the benefits to both you and the animals.

The site has a pretty in depth argument for the health benefits of grass fed meat, including the idea that it is lower in fat and calories, higher in vitamin E, and has a better balance of Omega 3/Omega 6.

Finally, and my favorite tool, EatWild has a great map that lets you look for all the pasture based farms in your area.  It has a map of the US, and then you can click on your state. From there it will list all the farms in your state, or you can click on the link at the top that will say "Visit our Eatwild your state map" - if you click on this link, it will take you to a map of your state will all the farms mapped on it. You can zoom in to your area, and find the farms nearest to you! I love this tool, since you don't have to worry about mapquesting every small town that you see listed on a farm address to see how far away from it you are!

Do you have any great websites that you would like to share? I would love to hear about them!
