View Full Version : Nutritional value ?

Is there a nutritional difference between the different cuts of beef?
Am I cheating myself by buying a $6/lb roast instead of a $20/lb steak? Grass-fed of course.

The only difference is the fat. Some fats are bad and some are healthy. I do not like to eat corn fed and not naturally raised beef. I only eat this kind of beef in restaurants, but I usually get the good stuff at Wholefoods. In my opinion, grass fed beef is the best choice when it comes to health and fighting off body fat because it has less Omega 6 and more of the good fats like Omega 3 and CLA. Corn fed cows have higher omega 6 and other toxins in it's fat. If you want to eat a leaner cut and can afford it, then do it. I am on a budget and [I] usually [get] grass fed beef that is not so lean. Eating "lean" grass fed beef or lamb is a treat for me and my klan.

Regarding different cuts, I doubt it makes much of a difference. As long as its grass-fed, you know its good stuff. Follow your intuition if possible and your wallet when necessary regarding what selection will be best for you at at given time. If the Roast is satisfying enough for you, nothin' wrong with that! :)

Thanks guys, that's what I thought. Just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something.

You might also consider grass-fed Buffalo if it is available to you. It is a bit leaner and some like the taste better as well.

I've been wanting to try the bison/buffalo, but it is a bit more expensive than the beef, so I haven't tried it yet.

So what have you been up to since Seattle?
Did you hook up with the martial arts place you were talking about?
