Notes

Make sure to buy grass-fed organic beef for the sake of the earth, the animals and your health. Conventional meat comes from animals that are treated inhumanely and are given GMO-grains, antibiotics and hormones which are known to cause disease in humans. Cows should graze on grass not grains or they become sick. Did you know we only need 3-4 oz of animal protein daily (size of your palm)? Gluten-free, Paleo.
