March Protein of the Month: Pasture-raised Beef
Marty’s Meals sources 100% GRASS-FED & ORGANIC BEEF
-Marty’s Meals sources beef from ranches in both New Mexico and Colorado. Our Colorado beef is certified organic as well as grass-fed and finished.
-Grass-fed beef is an excellent source of amino and essential fatty acids, as well protein, niacin, vitamin B2, B3, B6, B12, selenium, zinc, phosphorus, iron and potassium.
-Grass-fed meat’s have a lower fat content. Even the leanest cut from grain-fed cattle, for example, can still have two thirds more fat than the same cut from grass-fed.
-Compared with commercial products, [grass fed products] offer you more “good” fats, and fewer “bad” fats. They are richer in antioxidants; including beta-carotene, and vitamin C.”
-Vitamin E — another healing nutrient — is also higher in grass-fed meat than feedlot produced meat. Four times higher, in fact.
-Grass-fed animals are not feasting on growth hormones with every bite. Nor do grass-feed contain the traces of antibiotics and other drugs found in meat from feedlot fed animals.
-Pastured animals are not over-crowded like their feedlot compatriots, so they have lower stress levels and less exposure to disease.
-In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beef is considered a Neutral (Yin and Yang balanced) protein. Neutral foods are great for any dog, and can balance the effects of hot or cold foods.
