What we’ve found is that there is a very big difference between grain-fed beef, and grass-fed beef. Most of the beef that is sold at your local grocery store is grain-fed beef.

We’ve watched the video “Food Inc.“, and it disgusted us. It shows the absolutely inhumane things people will do for profit.

It is not natural for cows to eat grain.

That is why they get sick, and in turn when we eat them, we get all kinds of diseases because they pump the cows full of hormones, and antibiotics.

We have eaten both kinds of beef, and our experience teaches us that hands-down, grass-fed beef is the best. Since we started eating grass-fed beef from a local farm, we have started to feel better. We will never go back to the grain-fed beef that is in the grocery store.

Please find and visit a local farm that has grass-fed beef to get as much of your beef from them as possible. If you live in an area where there are no local farms, then look up online if there are any farmers markets nearby that sell it. If no farmers markets, then see if your local grocery store sells grass-fed beef; the money you pay is worth it. At least, it has been for us. 🙂 — IKB

Nature is a Force of Good

We felt this should be included in Self Care. Since he is talking about nature, he is talking about us too.

We should take better care of ourselves, and our environment. Plus, we love mushrooms! 🙂 — IKB
