The grass fed “trend” is growing by the minute, and folks all over are realizing the benefits of grass fed meat!
(And for the record, I don’t actually consider it a “trend.” It’s more getting back to basics and un-industrializing our food system. But I digress.)
Grass fed is so much better for the health of our bodies (and the planet, contrary to popular belief – a topic I myth-bust in my book Eat the Yolks) than conventional grain-fed! As the movement grows, we need to let folks know why grass fed is so special.
And what better way to learn more about grass fed meat than from a gal (me!) wearing a gingerbread man sweater?
I plan my wardrobe so that you know I’m serious.
