Grass fed beef is higher in omega 3s than conventional beef. It is also higher in vitamins E, C, and beta-carotene. This is due to the animal eating what it was biologically created to eat. Make sure that you find beef that is truly grass-fed, and not grain-finished, which means that the animal was fed grass until the last few months of life in which they are fed grains and other fattening and inflammatory foods. This is not good for you or the animal. Ask questions. Get to know your grocers and farmers. Your health is worth it.
