Eat Red Meat! ...Just don't eat it processed.

A new study published in May of 2010 "found that eating processed meat, such as bacon, sausage or processed deli meats, was associated with a 42% higher risk of heart disease and a 19% higher risk of type 2 diabetes. In contrast, the researchers did not find any higher risk of heart disease or diabetes among individuals eating unprocessed red meat, such as from beef, pork, or lamb."

Watch this video from the Harvard School of Public Health website that explains the findings.

In July, we purchased a half beef from the Oberg Brothers Ranch. We have been enjoying their grass fed beef over the last month and our freezer is still packed. The Ranch is located in the small community of Havillah Washington, a beautiful place with rolling grass and evergreen trees.

While we decided on purchasing from the Oberg Brothers, we have found that there are many sources for beef here in Central Washington.  Check out Eat Wild to find other sources for Grass Fed Meat, Eggs and Dairy.
