"Sustainable” and “organics” are two buzzwords that are all over the internet and social channels every day in the foodie world. Whether you’re looking to eat “clean”, follow a trend or protect the environment, chances are you have heard them.
Organic. It’s the way our grandparents ate (before factory farming became the norm) and the way more and more people are choosing to eat today. When it comes to meat, organic means is free of harmful pesticides, antibiotics or growth hormones, produced humanely and in harmony with our planet, packed with nutrients and full of flavor. It might cost a little more, but those who eat it—more than 45 percent of Americans choose organic, according to a recent Gallup Poll—believe it’s well worth it.
People have many different reasons for choosing to buy better quality meat, but some people aren't exactly sure where to start. One option is to choose to only buy certified organic beef. Either way, if you're ready to improve the quality of meat you buy; make sure you follow these tips the next time you shop.
