How 100% grass-fed beef makes for better mornings

School is back in session, and even if that means that the kids are still doing at-home learning,  starting the day off with a nutritious breakfast is just as important no matter what their location is. Last month, we offered up some examples of quick-and-easy meal hacks for the back-to-school season, and this month, we wanted to go even deeper on why 100% grass-fed beef makes such a difference in your family’s life, while also offering up some of our favorite breakfast recipes, too.

Whole30 Egg Muffins

Is there anything better than a nice egg muffin at the start of the day? This recipe uses our breakfast sausage links alongside fresh peppers and spinach, all of them chopped up and then mixed in with some gently whisked eggs. The only hard part is having to fight off the anticipation while they cook in the oven. This is an easy way to make breakfast time a breeze, while giving your family a protein-packed start to the day. Our grass-fed sausages ensure you’re getting a clean start to the day, with food that’ll keep you energized through the afternoon. 

Slow-Cooker Overnight 100% Grass-Fed Beef Breakfast Sausage Casserole

When we initially designed this recipe, it was with the holiday season in mind, because it’s always nice to sleep in a little later, but still have breakfast ready before your feet even touch the floor. Made with our 100% grass-fed beef breakfast sausage, cheese, onions, and peppers, this one is a simple set-it-and-forget-it meal that will have the whole family excited. When this one’s in the slow cooker, you can feel free to hit the snooze button once or twice and still have a nice warm breakfast waiting for you. That is, as long as the delicious scent doesn’t make you want to jump out of bed right away. 

“Since grass-fed beef products are higher in omega-3s than conventional beef, choosing grass-fed products can increase your child’s intake. Omega-3s are needed for brain development and function and heart health. There’s some evidence linking omega-3 intake to improvement in memory, mood, and symptoms of ADHD in children,” says Leah Johnston, RDN, LDN

At Teton Waters Ranch, we’re committed to our products being 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. That means that the cattle are allowed to graze as nature intended and are never confined to a feedlot. While other ranchers supplement their cattle’s diet with fillers like corn and soybeans, we work with ranchers who keep things totally natural. The cattle graze freely, so they can keep a fully grass-fed diet throughout their entire lives. That’s why we are proud to say both grass-fed and grass-finished, because where others cut corners, we let the livestock grow at nature’s pace, without anyone else rushing them along. 

It’s why we believe that first thing in the morning, giving your body clean, all-natural protein is so important. We also know that, more than ever, it’s important to make decisions about food based on what’s easiest, because everyone needs a break. And because we care about making things easier for you and yours, we want to share some easy, nutritious recipes that make for a great, grass-fed breakfast without any added hassle. 

With 100% grass-fed beef as a staple of your breakfasts you’re giving your family a better meal, one that will fill them up and make them feel better, each and every day.
