Eating grass-fed guilt-free?

I know, I know.Grass-fed beef or lamb, pastured pork and free-range chicken are expensive. I get it. In addition to raising grass-fed beef, I purchase the eggs, and chicken and half-a pig. I think of them as investments, not just because of the cost, but because they are really down-payments on my future, and yours.Hear from an expert: Dave Johnson, prez of GrassWorks, 9-9:30 AM CT, Deep Roots Radio, streamed live, http://www.wpcaradio.org.Hope you tune in.Sylvia Burgos Toftness...more
