Just Food Fast - Milk
All these products are whole milk, whole yogurt, or real half and half. The fats of grass fed cows, either in their meat or in their milk, is high in CLA, conjugated linoleic acid, which is very good for you. Its a long chain fatty acid that actually helps your body regulate and lower high cholesterol. It's also a more even balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats. People who have heart problems are told to take Fish Oil pills to get Omega 3's, or they can eat a steak or drink milk if it's from grass fed cows!!!Milk from grass fed cows is also high in vitamins that are not present to the same levels as conventional milk.
For breakfast this morning I had Seven Stars yogurt with some Ezekiel Sprouted Grain cereal, not local but organic and very good. I finished it off with a little local honey bought from the bulk section at the co-op.
Soon I'll post a bunch more about the really remarkable benefits for the environment and biodiversity that a grass based farm brings.
