Why You Shouldn’t Avoid Meat - Part 1

Before we get started, we want to make it clear that if you’ve decided not to eat meat, more power to you! However, if you are on the fence, we want to make the case for meat so you can come to the best conclusion for yourself. In our next few blogs, we're going to explore why eating meat is a good thing!

Please note that when we talk about meat, we’re talking about meat like the meat we sell - all-natural and minimally processed. Processed meat is an entirely different story.

Meat delivers important nutrients

People who don’t eat meat have to take supplements to get the vitamins meat provides, including B12, B3, B6, iron, selenium, and zinc. Though you can find most of these nutrients in other foods, meat provides them all. When you invest in grass-fed beef like ours, you get five times more omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for health.  

Just like there are nutrients you can only get from plants, there are nutrients you can only get from meat, including the following:

  • Carnosine protects you against degenerative diseases by being an antioxidant.
  • Creatine helps your muscles and brain save energy.
  • DHA and EPA come primarily from meat and are the active forms of omega-3 fatty acids.
