What is Sacred Cow?
Beef is framed as the most environmentally destructive and least healthy of foods, but while many argue that greatly reducing, or even eliminating it from our diets, Sacred Cow takes a more critical look at the assumptions and misinformation presented about meat - and has the science to back it up!

After spending years analyzing the science, the book presents a solid case that:
- Meat and animal fat are essential for our bodies
- A sustainable food system cannot exist without animals
- A vegan diet may destroy more life than sustainable cattle farming
- Regenerative cattle ranching is one of our best tools at mitigating climate change
Sacred Cow proposes a new way to look at sustainable diets. The book takes a deep dive into the nutritional claims against meat, why cattle raised well are actually good for the environment, and address the ethical considerations surrounding killing animals for food. The truth is, you cannot have life without death, and eliminating animals from our food system could cause more harm than good.
But even if this way of raising animals is better than our current system, surely you can’t feed the world this way, right? Yep, they tackle that too!
Why does it matter?
Listen to the podcast Robb and Diana did with a friend of mine, Dr. Paul Saladino, for a good overview of what it's all about and what's at stake.
What we now know is that the pandemic has revealed to people just how local, regenerative agriculture, especially animal agriculture is to our health and robusticity. With this model when meat is low at the supermarket, you could still visit your favorite meat guy at the farmer's market. And when the mega-meat-packing plants were shutting down, the small processor stayed open. This nimble, regenerative model is more robust than the overtaxed industrial model.

Whether you are a hard core Carnivore or a Vegan what Diana and Rob have to share about sustainable food on our planet matters.
