Living on a farm, I’m often struck by the distinction between the hyper-efficiency and convenience of our man-made lives, and the slow and deliberate pace of plant and animal life. Often, this contrast is painted in rosy terms: Slow down! Smell the roses! Stop and take a moment to breathe! You know what, though? Sometimes stopping and smelling the roses makes things harder.

Can you remember the last time the food you ate made you feel a certain way? When I became a vegetarian thirteen years ago, I would often tell others that I felt better when I didn’t eat meat. Such positive feelings were quickly eclipsed, however, by ill health caused from anemia and vitamin deficiency. I realize now that my body was reacting to the way food was raised. I reacted negatively to the additives, hormones, and drugs that were put into animals. (And I didn't want to eat animals raised that way!) However, I was also missing the nutrition that industrial farming practices remove from their meat products.

What made you commit to eating pasture-raised meat? Was it environmental concerns? Did you feel like you needed to make a change for your health? Were you horrified by the industrial standards for eating meat?
