The holidays have officially ended and the new year is upon us. Lists of positive changes for 2016 have been written, machines at the gym will be full and grocery shoppers will be filling their carts with lean meats and healthy produce. Whether or not you are jumping on the ‘New Year, New Me’ band wagon or not, there’s no denying it’s always time for positive changes that benefit health and longevity.
If you’re reading this blog you might already be a fan of SunFed Ranch Grass Fed Beef. Just in case you need a reminder or you want to tell your friends why they should jump on the bandwagon, here are 3 reasons you should eat more grass fed beef in 2016:
- Beef from grass fed animals has lower levels of unhealthy fats and higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are better for cardiovascular health.
- Grass fed beef has lower levels of dietary cholesterol and offer more vitamins A and E as well as antioxidants. These can help protect against multible diseases such as cancer and diabetes while helping to boost your immune system.
- Animals raised entirely on grass have about twice the levels of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA isomer, which may have cancer fighting properties and lower the risk of diabetes and other health problems.
At SunFed Ranch we have a lot of reasons to love grass fed beef. It allows us to do what we love to do: raise cattle the right way and provide people with a healthier alternative to conventional meats that they can feel good about.
We wouldn’t be able to do what we love without the support from people like you who have taken the initiative to care about the food they eat and where it comes from. Thanks for an amazing 2015! We look forward to continuing to improve and innovate in 2016 and hope that we can help you on your journey to a happy and healthy 2016!
