Walk into any Kroger store and ask yourself what’s up with milk. The Dillons brand is $2.70 and the Maple Hill organic is $14.00 per gallon; that’s quite a spread. Are those people who are paying $14 crazy? Silly? Confused? Sentimental? I’ll throw my two cents in and say that I don’t think they are crazy.
Joy and Purpose:
Pastured and grass-fed animals step onto new pasture with excitement and purpose. They spend hours looking for all the little leaves and grass stalks they want. Studies have shown that animals on pasture have lower levels of cortisol, most likely because they are doing something and are not bored out of their minds sitting in the same ten square feet they have lived in for five years. Try eating the same thing every day for five years and never going anywhere except your kitchen and your bedroom; you might keep weight on pretty well, but I bet there would be some side effects! 🙂
