Ethnic Recipes Are an Ideal Source for Grassfed Recipes
Looking for authentic grassfed recipes? Use ethnic recipes and you won’t have to dish out dollars for pricey modern cookbooks. Here’s the good news.
Virtually all of the meat, milk and eggs consumed world-wide are from grassfed and pasture-raised sources. It’s only in the United States and some other Western countries that producers grain-feed and grain-finish beef and lamb. In fact, prior to World War II all meat and milk in the United States was from grassfed animals. All eggs were laid by pasture-raised hens.
So where can we find the special recipes and cookbooks that tell us how to prepare grassfed foods?
One overlooked source for locating grass-fed recipes is ethnic cookbooks. Another is international cookbooks. Let me say the same thing in a different way: ethnic recipes are grassfed recipes. That’s why I’m placing this eBay feed on the grassfed recipes website.
No matter what genre of cookbooks you’re searching for, you’ll find ‘em here.
Grassfed cookbooks, of course, will appear here. Also antique and modern, healthy and not-so-healthy, chicken, beef, dairy, pork, lamb—all sorts of recipe books will show up on eBay. So pick and choose. Just remember, most ethnic cookbooks contain grass-fed recipes.
EBay is probably the world’s largest single source of recipe and cooking books ever assembled. And it’s constantly changing. I like to be able to find either new or used recipe books.
Swedish, Norwegian, Turkish, Scottish, English, Greek, Latvian—you name it—sooner or later they will turn up here. Nearly 100% of ethnic cookbooks will have grassfed recipes for meat, milk and eggs.
If you’re not registered to buy on eBay, it’s quick and easy. Browse around and find what you’re looking for.
One word of warning. Times and customs are changing abroad. While traveling in India just outside of Warangal in Andhra Pradesh I noticed a western style confinement poultry farm. It was humongous, seemingly a half mile long and stretching untold meters into the sky. Those hens were certainly not pasture-raised! In Turkey near modern Konya we visited a government farm (equivalent to a USDA experimental farm). The cows there were being fed grain in some sort of confinement operation. These are exceptions. The normal practice world-wide is natural grass feeding of animals. International cookbooks are still a good source for grassfed recipes.
That’s the way it should be. The health and environmental benefits of grass feeding are becoming well-known.
