With every meal, you make the decision to choose between pro-inflammation or anti-inflammation foods. Your health for the future is determined by the decisions you make in the present. So whether its protein, carbohydrates, fats, flavors or the beverages you consume, you will be either promoting inflammation or inhibiting it.
Most of us have heard that meat can be inflammatory. But remember not all meats are the same. Our family likes to buy grass fed meats. In fact we found a great price from a rancher who was selling his grass fed meat much cheaper than we could buy at the store. We love the flavor and know the health benefits of grass fed beef?
Why is Grass Fed Beef Better than Lot than Regular Beef?
Land animal meat like beef and pork are higher in certain kinds of fat that promote inflammation. Also, keep in mind that unless you are eating grass fed, grass finished beef, you are eating meat from a very sick animal. What I mean grass finished meat is that some farmers grass feed their cattle but then take it to a feed lot where it is given grains to fatten them up for slaughter so you lose the anti inflammatory benefits of grass fed beef.
The vast majority of beef on the market is produced in feedlots, where the cows subsist primarily on corn, which of course they are not at all designed to consume. So, because they are forced to eat something that is foreign to their physiology, their livers get totally blown out, causing systemic illness, requiring the use of massive quantities of powerful antibiotics. Cows that graze on grass out in pastures, on the other hand, pack anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids into their meat. If you want to do even better, eat wild-caught omega-3 rich oily fish like salmon and sardines
I wish I could recommend fish whole heartedly but because of much of the pollution and radiation from places like Fuchashima you have to be very careful about fish products. My suggestion is that you take a triple distillated fish oil such as Shaklee’s Omega Guard.
