Organic Meat

The food which we eat should be easy to digest, breakdown, and absorb all of the relevant nutrients. Eating organic food, in particular organic meat, is the best way to do this.

 

Why is organic meat so important?

Animals which have been pasture fed have been grazing in fields where the grass is literally greener. The grass hasn’t been sprayed with herbicides or fungicides, so natural weeds and the ecology (good bacteria) of the soil are unspoilt and good for the animals who are eating it. They will be getting more variety in their diet, and consuming small amounts of natural bacteria from the soil to improve their digestive function. So if a cow has a healthy digestive tract it will be assimilating more nutrients, so when we eat that piece of steak, we are getting ALL of the nutritional benefits from that cow’s healthy up-bringing.
