Are you still ordering the house salad, thinking that you’re being healthy? You’d be better off chewing on some air, pal. As kids we were all conditioned to associate iceberg lettuce with salad, but the reality is that iceberg is practically nutrient-less and other types of lettuce aren’t much better (read Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson).

Let's see... a couple shreds of carrot, 1/8 of a tomato, some iceberg lettuce.  I'm sure that totals to about - 0.75 servings of vegetables.

Pastured cows on the other hand can range freely, and feed on fresh grass (natural diet). Additionally these cows are raised without any antibiotics, hormones or pesticides. As a result, pasture butter more closely resembles its pure state and is also richer in nutrients than regular butter. Read the rest of this entry »
