I don't care if you're vegetarian, vegan, or carnivore. We are fortunate to live in a country with a healthy and safe food supply with many choices of food to choose from.

What I do care about is that you understand how your food is made. What is truly going into your "sustainable" choices. How many ingredients are they using and processing to try to mimic a product that is already perfect?  

Don't feel guilty about eating meat, if anything you should feel proud. Proud to support American ranchers who are constantly working to raise their animals with regenerative and sustainable practices. Who are utilizing plants we cannot consume and turning it into the BEST source of protein for our bodies. That is something to be celebrated.



Here are some fast facts for you:

Between 1977 and 2007, cattle farmers and ranchers produced each pound of beef using 19% less feed, 33% less land, and 12% less water.

84-86% of livestock feed is non edible by humans, while 90% of cattle’s diet is non edible by humans - grass, hay, silage, grain. 

In the US, corn going to feed beef cattle represents only 10% of harvested corn, where 34.8% of corn acreage in the U.S. is used for producing fuel ethanol. ⁣

Enjoy your steak. Enjoy your vegetables. Put please don't be persuaded to think that highly processed foods are the better, "healthier" choice.
