by Jo Robinson (Author)
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. 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.
