Choose Your Protein Wisely

Food Rule #2.

Focus on quality protein sources such as wild game, wild fish and seafood, grass-fed meats, and free-roaming organically fed eggs, while trying to avoid most farmed meats and farmed fish that were fed mostly grains and kept in unhealthy “factory farm” environments.

We aren’t supposed to live on a diet based on grains.  For more than 99% of our existence on this planet we chased our food or gathered it from the wild.  It was fresh, seasonal and contained very, very little grains.

The meat we ate would have followed their food and we would have followed them.  They and we would not have been overfed, innactive and certainly not obese.

The fats found in free range protein sources (animals, fish, eggs) are a healthy balance of saturated and unsaturated fats – just as we should have a balance of saturated and unsaturated fats in our own bodies.

Taste the difference when you buy free range, grass fed protein.

Intensively farmed animals and fish fed on GM Corn based feed fatten quickly and give the producer a fast return – but gives you a tastless, watery, high fat content food.

ALWAYS choose free range protein. If you can grass fed – Spring LAmb for example is born and raised outdoors.  Then if you can afford it go for organic as then you know their feed is healthy and non GM too.

Look out for the next #Rule…..
