What is Happy Meat?

Happy meat is exactly what it sounds like: meat from animals that were raised in a safe, animal-friendly environment.  This means the animals were free-range (and ACTUALLY free-range, none of that nonsense about how they have access to the outside world but really they’re all crammed into a warehouse) and that the farmers that raised them cared for them in an environmentally responsible manner.

Why eat happy meat?

Think about the way that food works.  Your body breaks down the fuel you feed it and uses that fuel to build your tissues and give you energy.  We all know the saying “you are what you eat”.  So it should surprise nobody to know that animals are what they eat as well.  When they’re fed genetically modified foods with no nutritional value, it means they taste worse and lack necessary nutrients that we can only get from meat, like omega-3 fatty acids and B-12.  So recognizing this, don’t you want to make sure that the foods you’re using to build your body came from a happy place?

Happy meat is also an incredibly responsible way to go about living your life.  You support small farmers that recognize that animals have every right to live on this earth like we do, but also know that happy meat tastes really really good.  It’s true: organic, happy meat tastes way better than that nasty particle board meat you get from factory-farmed animals.

What does a happy meater eat?

I’m pretty much a vegetarian, except when I know that the meat is happy meat.  I also make an effort to always buy organic, local produce for the same reason I eat only happy meat: it tastes better, it has more nutrients, and it’s better for the environment.

So join me.  Become a happy meater.

  1. I love the concept of being a happy meater! I’ve recently been convicted to do just what you are talking about, as the way they treat the animals is just horrible, not to mention all of the nasty, dangerous stuff they add to the meat! Looking forward to reading more from your blog!

      Thanks! I really believe in “you are what you eat” and I really don’t want to eat a lot of these horrible things that go into meat, or the animals that were abused to make meat for humans to eat. I’m glad you feel the same way!
