When going out to get the lean ground meat for this homemade meatballs recipe, you will see more than one option. At the grocery store, you will see both conventional and certified organic meats. The main differences between conventional and certified organic meats are in what foods the animals are fed, and the way in which the animals are raised. When it comes to what food the animals are fed, organic farmers must follow a strict set of organic rules from the USDA, which does not allow them to feed the animals any remnants of other animals, the animals must be fed a 100 percent organic feed diet, and be allowed to roam wildly and eat grass. Organic meat is both antibiotic and hormone free. Certified organic animals are not administered any hormones or antibiotics or fed any GMOs or pesticide-containing feed, which means you will not be ingesting any of these drugs or chemicals. For free range or grass fed meat these animals are raised humanely and ethically. The animals are allowed to graze on whatever is in the area and are not caged in tiny coops or fenced-in areas. Whether you eat a little or a lot of meat, it's always a good idea to eat organic whenever you can.You might try to start buying organic meats for one meal a week or try eating less meat, so when you do have meat, it's organic or free-range. It is said that certified organic meats have a fresher and more authentic taste because they are fed a more natural diet and are free of hormones and chemicals that conventionally-raised animals are given. Studies have shown that organic meats are higher in antioxidants, so they offer a better taste experience. Plus you can feel better about supporting organic meat and free range meat as it is better for both the animals and the environment.
