How about
"grass fed is best"
with the companion phrase
"I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to eat soybeans"

Much like Toby I'm healthier and happier with my diet since I started 
eating meat again.  also after growing tofu beans and grass finished beef I 
pretty sure the beef is a far less damaging way to make protein, and has 
excellent lipid balance compare to feedlot meat.  Furthermore it's a lot 
easier to get people eating a different kind of meat rather than  an 
unframiliar vegan diet.  Pasture also builds soil OM when properly managed, 
though wheat can as well (with lots more tillage or biocide).  Can this 
list receive attachments?  I wrote a document on grazing in PC that may be 
of interest to folks.
