CFOS Nutrition Nugget – Strauss BEEF

CFOS Nutrition Nugget… Not All Beef is Created Equal

Red Meat is one of the most nutrient dense protein sources available and truly a item we should be adding into our nutrition weekly to optimize health and performance.

Not all beef is created equal though, grass-fed / grass finished beef verus grain -fed beef are in my opinion, two completely different foods. Grain fed beef falling into the category of unhealthy and harmful to our well being.  ( See Chart )


Strauss Beef is hands down my pick for quality meat.

Strauss is 100% grass fed and grass finished raised on open pastures; never raised in feedlot, never administered antibiotics or growth hormones, agriculturally sustainable, environmentally friendly, born and raised in the USA by family farmers. Strauss also recently partnered up with CrossFit Inc., working together on the fight against chronic disease. WHOOP WHOOP, pretty neat!!

Strauss Beef is never EVER given antibiotics, artificial growth stimulants and hormones are never administered. Strauss is free raised, grass fed beef that is never fed concentrates, artificial foods, grains, or animal bi-products, ever.

Meat that is grass fed and grass finished is pack with a tremendous amount of vitamins and minerals that are necessary for optimal health such as……

  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • B vitamins
  • Selenium
  • Phosphorus
  • Choline
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Beta carotin
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E

Strauss Beef Burger……Taste is off the charts!! Get in my belly!!


OMEGA 3

Not to mention chock full of Omega 3s, which are fatty acids important for heart health, brain function and also been shown to reduce risk of cancer.  Grass fed and grass finished beef contain higher level of Omega 3s, than grain finished beef.

CLA?!?!?

Even more exciting NEWS, grass fed and grass finished beef have high level of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), which is a fatty acid. CLA improves metabolism, reduces body fat, (especially belly fat) improves immune health, and has been show to increase endurance / strength. Grass-finished beef contains 2 to 3 times more CLA than grain-finished beef.

FUN FACT……..

A 6oz steak from grass-finished beef has almost 100 fewer calories than a 6oz steak from grain-finished beef.

Where to purchase this yummy, healthy and reasonably priced meat?!?!

In our home town of Brevard County, Florida, Strauss Beef is easily found at Publix and other grocery stores, between $6-$9 a pound.

SO…… Long story short, don’t skimp on your meat, get the good stuff, your body will thank you!! Not to mention, the taste is off the charts good, huge difference. 

Till next time!!
