This is a fantastic book that is a must read for those who eat meat or other animal products and do not stick to a plant-based diet alone.

She tells you what to look for, where you can find it, and even how you cook it. She leads you to a great resource:, which...more

If you care at all about the source of your food, this is a very important book to read. Eggs from the grocery store and eggs from pasture raised chickens are not the same thing. The difference was apparent by looking at them before, but it was good to read what exactly is different.

It makes perfect sense, and the author does a very nice job of staying unbiased in her research and backing up her findings with study upon study.

Boy, I have alot to say about food and what we are doing to ourselves...more

Fabulous book that includes recipes by grass-fed beef ranchers! Purchase it at, a watchdog for local sustainable farmers, or make a donation to the cause. is a comprehensive webpage that explains the difference between grass-fed and regular beef, the benefits to animal and man. It includes an interactive map of the US, so that you can find local farmers and grass-fed ranchers near you.

This is a book that should be read by anyone who eats meat or other animal products. Learn about how our food is produced and what it means for our own health, the planet's health, and the health of the animals. A truly eye-opening read.

This is such a clear and concise argument for why grass-fed is critically important for the environment, farmers, as well as human and animal health.
