mmmmmm, chocolate.

What animal has a diet of gummy bears, chocolate cake, and feathers?

Stumped?

If you guessed cattle raised by our mega-sized slaughterhouses, you’re correct!

Alex, tell them what they’ve won!

Thanks to some great reporting from fellow blogger Andy Bellatti at Small Bites, I have learned of a recent document which has been released that sheds some light on the diet of the cows we are eating.

Did you know that  blood meal, hydrolyzed Feather meal, and candy are part of that diet?

Gives new meaning to the saying, You are what you eat.

Seriously, though….you might want to think twice about eating meat (our poultry) that is not organic and/or grass-fed. Who the heck wants a butterfinger in their meat?
