Stick with the Basics to get healthier FAST!

It's always a good idea to stick with the basics to avoid overwhelm.

Don't you just feel a sigh of relief and a weight off your shoulders when you fall back on the basics in life? ahhh…

Here is my basic ground beef recipe for you when you just don't have the time or the ingredients to make burgers and your kids think taco seasoning is too spicy.

But, first, let's talk about how to make this easy recipe the healthiest for your family!

You are what you eat ATE.

That's why It’s not only important what we eat. But, it also matters what the foods that we eat, ate.

You are what we eat ATE

Many studies have shown that the nutrients in beef can vary depending on what the cows eat.

Generally speaking, grass-fed cows eat grass like they were created and meant to eat.  The basics!

Conventionally raised grain-fed cows eat an unnatural diet of soy, corn and more of NOT the basics.

Today, conventionally raised cows are given drugs and hormones to grow faster, as well as antibiotics to survive the confined and unsanitary living conditions. The cows live there for a few months and then moved into the factory for slaughtering.

So let's just stop eating beef.

Well, that may not be the solution for you.

Protein in beef provides plenty of building blocks for our body for strong lean muscles and healthy hormones. Vitamin B12 {think ENERGY!} is abundant in beef, it is for essential for our healthy nervous system and blood. It also has iron and potassium and more.

Then Let's just eat Beef!

Sure (if that works for you) but let's stick with the BASICS.

Not just any beef but an organic, pasture raised, GRASS-FED BEEF.  That's the basics!  Cows were made to roam around, graze on grass and grow on their own.

Cows weren't meant to live in tight and confined cages, needing antibiotics because of the confinement or given added growth hormones to grow faster and fatter.

You are what you eat ATE.

Sticking with the basics will maximize the nutrients your family can get from beef by eating grass-fed beef and it will minimize their toxins / toxic load on their bodies.

Here are the basic Grass Fed Beef health Benefits:

  • High levels of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and other ‘good fats’ like omega-3’s
  • Lower levels of ‘bad fats’
  • Higher levels of antioxidants including beta-carotene, vitamins A, B, C, and E
  • Free of hormones and antibiotics
  • Lower fat, leaner meat (shown to help lower bad or LDL cholesterol levels)
  • Higher in minerals (calcium, potassium, magnesium)

Now that you've got the basics on what kind of beef to buy now,  I'm excited to share this simple and easy Recipe for Grass-Fed ground beef.  You can serve this as a main protein or for your next taco night.

Again, I've got you covered on the healthiest basic ingredients you need to make your grass-fed ground beef even healthier and tastier.

If you need to revisit why using healthy fats makes your food even healthier and helps your family avoid toxins, you can go back to these healthy fat basics here.

Basic Grass-Fed Ground Beef


  • 1-1/3 grass-fed organic ground beef
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or ghee
  • ¼ tsp. pink Himalayan Sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. garlic (powder or fresh)


  1. Heat coconut oil or ghee in sauté pan over medium-low heat.
  2. Sprinkle salt and add garlic evenly and stir.
  3. Stir in beef and cook until brown and no longer red.
  4. Stir occasionally.

Grass-fed beef cooks quicker than regular beef so I suggest to lower the heat to better control how well it is cooked. Otherwise, it can go from perfectly cooked to overdone in a matter of seconds.

The simplicity of this recipe works with organic grass-fed beef because the taste and quality of this REAL FOOD speaks for itself.  And using a healthy fat like coconut oil or ghee brings out the flavors even more.

Once your family eats organic grass-fed beef, they'll never want to go back to the bland and weak taste of conventional beef.  And this my friend, makes it easier for you to get your family healthier fast!
