It is not enough to eat a diet high in protein, but what matters most is being educated and focused on the origin of that protein. Eating clean starts long before the food hits your table. It starts in the treatment and diet of the animals you consume. Grassfed beef is a quintessential source of nutrition in leading a Paleo lifestyle. Grassfed beef carries a higher nutritional value, due to the humane treatment of the cows from day one, and a diet consisting of this choice of meat will result in delicious, sustainable protein for the whole family without the risks associated with grain-fed beef. Look for beef with higher fat content and eat local when possible.
