BE AWARE OF FAKE GRASSFED BEEF
Eating clean and nutrient dense food is about investing in your health, which is a choice, a choice that will heal your body and mind. Along the way, you will lose weight, sleep better, remove your brain fog, and most importantly spend more quality time with family and God. We think Hippocrates said it best when he said, “Let Food be thy Medicine”
Don’t be made a fool by purchasing what we call “FAKE” grass-fed beef. The Department of Agriculture has watered down the beef labeling laws so that grain-fed beef can be labeled as grass-fed. Therefore, some “FAKE” grass-fed beef is actually grain-fed beef but you are charged a premium price and will not see/feel the health benefits oftrue Grassfed/Grass Finished. If your package of beef doesn’t have the American Grassfed Association (AGA) logo or another national certification company’s logo on it, then it probably isn’t TRUE Grassfed. True Grassfed Beef is beef that has grazed GREEN forages their entire lives, from birth to finishing…and are NEVER fed grains. That’s important if you’re on a serious health journey, have food sensitivities, or food allergies.
