Eat Organic, Pasture-raised, Beef and Lamb …

Cook Full-fat Portions of Meat …

Not only are they more tender and delicious, they also contain anti-microbial fatty acids important for our health . As for fats, only rancid vegetable oils and modified trans-fats are bad for you.

such as liver and heart - they are true depositories of precious, health promoting minerals and vitamins, which are hard to obtain from any other food.

6

Tender Portions of Red Meat…

(like filet and rib cuts of beef, or leg of lamb) should be eaten rare, with the most of their vitamin and enzyme content still intact.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Very good article, but you misspelled two words in the final sentence. I'm not nitpicking, but I want to show this to my vegetarian sister, and she will nitpick and dismiss your article because of the spelling. I don't want her to be able to do that, because it is quite good and written by someone she will respect (if the spelling is fixed) ;-). That last sentence states: "Who knows, maybe even your vegetarian friends will reconsider their believes once they are aware of the many benifits of eating meat? :)" It should be "beliefs" and "benefits". Oh, and my English teacher would tell you to rewrite point three: "not only are they more tender and delicious, they also contain important for our health anti-microbial fatty acids." Should read: "not only are they more tender and delicious, they also contain anti-microbial fatty acids important for our health". ...for reasons I won't state, and it just reads better. Thanks Amanda for a good article and some interesting facts about meat.
