Grass-fed meat is lower in fat and calories than commercially raised animals. "As an example, a 6-ounce steak from a grass-finished steer can have 100 fewer calories than a 6-ounce steak from a grain-fed steer. If you eat a typical amount of beef (66.5 pounds a year), switching to lean grassfed beef will save you 17,733 calories a year—without requiring any willpower or change in your eating habits. If everything else in your diet remains constant, you'll lose about six pounds a year. If all Americans switched to grassfed meat, our national epidemic of obesity might diminish."

This week we are loving all of the fresh local garlic in our Nettie Fox Farm Share. Garlic has many health benefits with powerful antioxidants and elements that reduce inflammation and stimulate immune response. For maximum health benefits, crush or chop garlic cloves 10 minutes before cooking - heating the garlic immediately after chopping inactivates a crucial healthy enzyme. Below is a card on the healthy benefits of garlic along with our favorite garlicky shrimp scampi recipe. ENJOY!
