Why Red Meat is a Caveman's Best Friend.



If you're like most of us, you've probably been told at some point that red meat is bad for you. But let's be honest, cavemen didn't have access to kale, quinoa and supplements galore, but they still managed to survive (and thrive) on a diet rich in red meat. So why do people say no top the good stuff?


First off, it's important to note that not all red meats are created equal. Processed meats like bacon and deli meats should definitely be consumed in moderation (if at all), but unprocessed, grass-fed red meats offer a host of health benefits.


One of the main reasons red meat is so good for us is because it's an excellent source of protein. Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle, and it also helps keep us feeling full and satisfied.


Red meat is also a great source of iron, which is crucial for carrying oxygen to our cells and tissues. This is especially important for women, as they tend to have a higher risk of iron deficiency.


But perhaps the most surprising benefit of red meat is that it's actually a good source of healthy fats. Grass-fed beef, for example, is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and may even help reduce the risk of heart disease.


So next time someone tries to tell you that red meat is bad for you, just tell them that cavemen knew what was up. They may not have had access the grocery store or online supplement shop, but they still managed to survive (and thrive) on a diet rich in red meat. And let's face it, if it was good enough for cavemen, it's good enough for us.





Bon appétit, Cavemen!"
