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.
