No grassfed beef at where I live
« on: August 10, 2020, 05:14:23 pm »
So I just started the raw paleo last week. The only meat without gmo, hormones, etc. I could find was chicken so that's what I started with. Sadly, all other meats are of conventional animal farming and I feel kind of limited. I live in Croatia and grassfed doesn't seem to even be a thing here, people just aren't thinking about it. Should I avoid all beef since it isn't grassfed?

I highly doubt that it is impossible to get "grass-fed" where you live. I have seen in a lot of countries that good quality meat is available, you just need to know where to look. You are better off looking on the internet (in your native language), going to farmers' markets than regular supermarkets most of the time, although it still worth checking those as well. Remember that grass-fed is most likely not going exist as a term in your own language as it would in English, try and find farmers that claim their animals were free range/pasture raised, fed only/mostly grass/hay and very little grains/soy etc... With a little luck, you can probably find a term that describes something similar to grass-fed in your language.

If you cannot get that, try to at least get organic, if at all possible. The alternative is buying wild game/wild caught fish, but do be sure to check if it is indeed truly wild.

I get wild meat much cheaper than beef and also much easier option to find wild meat than grass fed meat. It is of better quality than any grass fed meat, but initially it is difficult to manage as it is gamy.

Then there are some races like highland cattle, Angus etc. who are not fed with grains, and thus they are mostly 100% grass fed. Try to find out the farms who sell angus/highland cattle.

There are also chances to get 100% grass fed sheep. There are some farmers who don't feed their sheep with grains.

Lastly, you have the option to buy the wild caught fish too.

Grass-fed is not the most important. You wanna stick to nutrient-rich red meat. You can remove the fat if you are concerned about fat-soluble toxins. If you are wise, you will understand this important free info.

We can agree to disagree. Conventional farmed meat, even "nutrient dense" sources, gave me acidosis. Nutrient dense grassfed meat changed my health. The fat is also as much, if not more, important than the muscle meat. Organs too which I wouldn't touch from a conventional source.

Of course the more natural the better. But I do think you can do fine on conventional red meat. Do you mean you got acidosis from conventional red-meat? But not from grass-fed red meat? How did you establish that you got acidosis? Of course it's better especially when it comes to organs. But conventional red meat at least here in Austria should be more nutrient dense and healthier than for example pastured chicken.

Also I meant the term or license "grass-fed" is not what counts. Good cooks or hunters can tell the quality of the meat by looking or smelling it. Unless the flesh is poisoned or contaminated with something that you can't see or smell or doesn't change the texture but this should be a rare occasion. Age of the animal and the exact living conditions count. Also red meat probably will always be better than even organic pastured chicken or something. If you are wise and did your research you will know why.

Isn't it obvious, some things are so easy and simple and that's what makes them so hard to understand and see? One main point, what colour is your flesh?
