the only grass fed beef my local whole foods sells is ground beef. Is that ok to eat regularly? Different suggestions how to prepare it along the zone parameters?

The only problem with ground beef would be the fat content, which is high in saturated fat. Try to ensure that you're at 90% lean.

It seems a bit odd to me that they only carry grass fed ground beef. Where's the rest of the grass-fed steer going? Is the store not grinding its own hamburger? If they're getting it from a wholesaler, why can't they get the rest of the animal? You might want to check out exactly what they mean when they say grass-fed.

As for preparing in line with zone, just broil it. I eat grass-fed ground beef probably 5x per week. Sometimes with eggs and one slice of toast and an apple in the am. Other times on top of vegetables with olive oil. You can put some cheese on with carbs. I know there's a zone meatloaf recipe.

If the beef is grass-fed, the fat content is going to be a positive rather than a negative. Check to make sure it's grass fed it's whole life, and not "grass-raised, grain-finished". Saturated fat isn't looked on so negatively around here.
