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. The author, Jo Robinson, goes into great detail regarding how our food is produced and processed and what healthy production means for our health, the health of our land and soil, and the welfare and health of our animals. 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: www.eatwild.com, which ...more

This book is excellent. My only complaint is that it is so short. I don't really know what more there is to say on the topic, but I could've kept reading about it forever.

I read this book once, slowly to digest all the info and then one more time right after so I could be sure I retained the information. The writing is succinct and very informative, while still being easy to understand. Now that I have more concrete knowledge about animal products, I have actually started taking action and modi

Recommends it for: anyone seriously interested in their health
Recommended to Wendy by: Real Foods Market
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

Succinct and valuable book about the benefits of eating meat and eggs from animals raised naturally, on pasture, rather than in CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, such as feedlots for cattle, or the ubiquitous chicken houses of our area). Simply put, just as we can say to a person, “You are what you eat” – meaning that our health depends on what we put into our bodies, so we can also say that our FOOD “is what it eats.” The vitamins and other nutrients in pasture-raised meat far surp ...more

Fabulous book that includes recipes by grass-fed beef ranchers! Purchase it at Eatwild.com, a watchdog for local sustainable farmers, or make a donation to the cause. Eatwild.com 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.
