Grass-fed meats, being a more concentrated source of nutrients and cleaner than conventional meat, is worth the price increase. Really, it is as simple as “you get what you pay for.”
A cheaper cut of meat might give you fat and protein, but you’ll probably be getting unwanted hormones, antibiotics, and fewer nutrients than meat from a higher quality grass-fed source.
In our home, nutrients take priority over price differences, and we try our best to mostly purchase foods that come with a superior nutrient profile. As a result, we enjoy good health and hope to keep it that way!
