Do you know what kind of meat are you eating?
Since many years ago, man has been hunting and eating meat because he found it nutritious so that he could survive. Nowadays, we don’t hunt; exceptions are hunters that do that for fun, mostly, but we buy meat because we still find it very nutritious and because we got used to using it in our everyday meals. Some people couldn’t imagine their meals without meat, at all. But, as we buy meat in super markets, do we know where does it come from? How healthy is that meat?
Before super markets got super popular for shopping all the necessary things for our homes and food, as well, we used to go to small market places where we could find domestic fruit, vegetables, meet, eggs, etc. We could be sure that those eggs are from chickens that are fed by grass and all the food that it is meant to them, to give healthy eggs. That also refers to meat, as well. No matter if we are talking about pork or beef, it was still the best quality that we could ever get.
As the time passed by, super markets got popular. Big places with lots of groceries to offer, people got used to coming to those places and to buy all the necessities. But, studies have shown that all those animals that give us meat that we use are not treated the way they are supposed to be. Usually, they are closed in barns, without a chance to go out on the field, to eat a bit of grass that is essential for their health, as for ours.
Since that was all discovered, some people didn’t want to cut the meat out of their every day habit to use it, so they are offered another way of getting the meat. Real meat that is not full of antibiotics and supplements that make it stay “fresh” for a long time, etc. Yes, we are talking about organic meat. That meat comes from animals that are kept on open fields, fed with grass and the seed that they usually eat, like in the time that people used to have their farms, where you could find whatever you need of vegetables, fruits, etc.
Organic and grass fed meat are being extremely popular nowadays among the consumers, because of the health benefits and environmental consideration. Among all types of meat, paleo beef is being used a lot, because of the diets, as well. As every animal that we eat has fat, beef fat is not unhealthy as pork fat is. After all, you don’t really have that much fat in beef that could really undermine your health and it could be considered as good fat.
So, we come to a conclusion that there still are many farms out there, that can offer you their domestic products, and so that you can be sure that
you are eating fresh and healthy food. We should start visiting those farms, becoming their loyal customers, to prevent illness that might affect our heath even for a longer period.
