New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Grass-fed/finished Meat For The Well-being Of People, Planet, & Animals
In a weekly roundup a couple of months ago, I told you about a new amazing meat-a-palooza restaurant in LA I discovered called “Belcampo,” founded by a meat lover named Anya Fernald. I had the pleasure of eating there twice—and both times had my socks knocked off by flavorful liver, heart, rib-eye, tartare, roasted carrots and (oh my freaking gosh) tallow fries.
This week, I was both thrilled and floored to learn that Belcampo ships its regeneratively farmed, grass-fed, grass-finished meats and bone broths straight to your front down from their 30K acre ranch in pristine Mt. Shasta, California. When I had dinner with Anya, she explained how every single animal is ethically raised from birth to harvesting and the intense focus they have upon choosing breeds for optimized flavor and health. Belcampo controls every aspect of its supply chain.
Unlike competitors, they raise their animals on their own farm and operate their own USDA-inspected and Animal Welfare Approved processing facility. Because they own their facility, they have implemented a strict coding system that allows full traceability, and they track all animals from birth to butchery to your plate. Because you always know exactly which animal each cut of meat comes from, you can feel good about its quality, its integrity, and its safety. They also employ low-stress animal handling practices for the animals, which include cattle, lamb, swine, chicken, and turkey. They work hard to provide their animals with the happiest life on the farm and are there when they’re born, with them every day on pasture, and make sure that they are handled in the most compassionate way when they transition to the processing facility.
The end result is a collection of mouth-watering cuts of meats and a unique lineup of everything from sweetbreads to liver to bone broth to, in this case, giant bone-in ribeyes that rival the best ribeye I’ve ever had in my life. I smoked these 2lb ribeyes on the Traeger for a couple of hours with black Kona sea salt, paprika, chopped rosemary, a touch of cayenne, and extra virgin olive oil, then finished with a quick 5-minute grill per side at 500°F. The end result was exactly as I expected: mind-blowing.
Here’s the goods news: When you click here and use code: GREENFIELD10, you'll save 10% on any of Belcampo's mouth-watering carnivore goodness. Bon appetit! This meat just tastes DIFFERENT in a really, really good way!
How To Deliver Potent Antioxidants Directly Into Your Respiratory Tract & Nasal Passages
To those of you wondering and asking me how I've been nebulizing glutathione and N-acetyl-cysteine while I'm working on emails in the afternoons at my desk, here's exactly how.
It's a pretty cool way to deliver antioxidants directly into the nasal passage and respiratory tract and helpful for mold, mycotoxins, viruses, bacteria, Lyme, biofilm, etc. I realize you are probably, these days, learning a billion things you can do to enhance your immune system, but this is another tool for your immunity toolbox.
Enjoy, and let me know if you try it!
