Pasture Perfect: The Far-reaching Benefits of Choosing Meat, Eggs, and Dairy Products from Grass-fed Animals
Jo Robinson's new book Pasture Perfect explains the far-reaching benefits of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from animals raised on pasture. Drawing on five years of research, Robinson explains that products from grass-fed animals are safer and more nutritious than conventional ones, and why raising animals this way is also better for the environment. What's more, the animals live low-stress, more natural lives. Chickens are free to graze on greens, scratch for insects, enjoy sun baths, and roost in comfort. Cattle, bison, dairy cows and lambs are truly contented as they graze on green pasture, breathe fresh air, and stay on the farm from birth until market.Robinson is the first to gather all the scientific evidence proving that pastured products are safer and more nutritious. As readers will learn, meat from grass-fed animals is free of hormones, antibiotics and mad cow disease. It is also higher in Vitamin E, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids, and the newly discovered cancer-fighting fat called "CLA." Eggs and dairy products from pastured poultry and dairy cows have similar benefits.Pasture Perfect does more than explain the benefits of pastured products—it also helps you locate, store, and cook them. You will appreciate the 60 pages of recipes that are designed to bring out the tenderness and flavor of this highly nutritious, environmentally friendly food.Accurate and carefully referenced, Pasture Perfect is the definitive book on this greenest of industries.

I read Eating on the Wild Side, and thought it was damn good reporting, so of course I wanted a farm side to the story. This is plastic, compared to her other book. It doesn't contribute a whole lot to the discussion in any level. Half of it is recipes anyway. Read full review
