Tailor Made Beef

We strive to make the healthiest, nutrient-dense beef possible.

“Don’t worry, Be Happy”

Remember that song by Bobby McFarrin from the late 80’s?  Had a nice beat and easy listening. Kind of a de-stressor. Dr. David Perlmutter, in his newest book, Braain Maker, describes how food affects our mood and almost everything else about our lives. The primary  “game changer” is the biology in our gut. Our micro-biome! […]

“The Big Fat Surprise” (2014) Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

What if the government’s crusade against fat fed the spread of obesity by encouraging us to abstain from foods that satiate us efficiently? Today I think of Harrison Ford in the Fugitive, where the villains switched the livers to show that “Provasic” (RDU-490) worked. In real life, “the proverbial THEY” (Ancel Keys, Marston White and others) […]

Soil, CO2 and Health

All day Sunday March 1st (while returning from a carbon sequestering conference at Chico State) I was thinking about all the things we heard and trying to make sequestering carbon “sexy” (as Robb Wolf said). Not wanting to minimize what any of the speakers brought to the conference, but here is where my mind has gone … so far! We […]

We have to take control of our own future.

How we live for the rest of our days and the future of our children and grand children is (has always been) in our own hands. Short term cutting of corners turns into a lifestyle of cutting corners. At least on the food level we have got to stop using the “bean counter” approach and […]

Be the best version of you … you can be

I just read an article on the twelve habits of exceptionally likeable people. When I finished, I said out loud, “That is just a good article. We all can use more friends in this day and age. The best way to get friends is to be a friend. I hope you enjoy the article as much […]

Your “one in a thousand” … In this case, maybe not so good:-(

According to Dr. David Brownstein, 1/1000 people have a “negative reaction” (see bolded symptoms towards the bottom of this post) when supplementing with Iodine. “But why am I supplementing with iodine in the first place?” A number of thoughts come to mind, but for a complete list, get THE BOOK. Iodine is a member of […]

Arsenic, it’s not just for breakfast anymore!

Here are some of the results of Arsenic levels found in foods by Consumer Reports. Note how these levels compare to the 10 parts per billion that the EPA has established as an upper limit for drinking water: Arrowhead Mills Organic Sweetened Rice Flakes – 963 ppb (!!) Della Basmati Brown Rice – 568 ppb […]

Mother Earth News and Grass-Fed Beef

A friend sent me the link to a Mother Earth News article centered around getting livestock back on the land instead of buildings and feedlots. Pretty well done in my estimation (if I were a writer I would have said a thing or three differently). Cattle on mineral rich grasses produce less greenhouse gas (and […]

Sleeping Kitchen and the Seven Super Foods

Most of us are trying to stay, or get, healthy on a budget. This morning Dr. Mercola came up with a list of seven Super Foods we can all afford. Before, I write the list, I want to plug “Local” “Regenerative” “Nutrient-rich” Farmers. The Boise Farmers Market, located at 10th and Grove-just off the connector, […]

“The mineral that causes more cancer than any other mineral.”

Dr. Richard Olree, from Hillman Michigan, co-authored a book entitled “Minerals for The Genetic Code” The first half of the book is a fascinating read. The second half gets very detailed. Dr. Olree says that Fluorine causes more cancer than any other mineral. Iodine prevents more cancer than any other mineral. Now we are finding that fluoridation […]
