  • cant afford grass fed meat?!?

    HI,
    My name is Nelli, and im super new to this. I can not afford grass fed meat just yet, we were gonna wait until income tax this next year to get our freezer and our meat.
    Am i wasting my time with this lifestyle, if all i can afford is regular, possibly gmo'd, soy fed beef? Does that void out the primal lifestyle for me?
    just wonderin

    You can do this lifestyle without the grassfed meat. I get it when it's available, and when it's available at a reasonable price. Otherwise, I eat the best I can with what's available at the local grocery store. I try to make it up by eating organic fruits, veggies, eggs and dairy. I would love to have grassfed all the time, but it's difficult for some of us convenience or financial wise.

      Absolutely not. Eating a primal diet on commercially raised meat is not optimal, but it's certainly better than eating the Standard American Diet. I eat primarily commercially raised meat as well for the same reason and I have been very pleased with the way this lifestyle has been treating me.

      I say get some fish oil to make up some of the O-3 the meat doesn't contain and call it square. Whenever you can afford to get grass-fed meats, go for it. When you can't, just eat as well as you can with what you can afford.

        I still haven't had grass fed meat. I eat a lot of salmon and supp with fish oil to balance it out.

          I've stopped even trying to say it in my own words. People don't like to hear me say it.

              I think it's great that so many of us dive right in and want to do our best at this, but sometimes, like blank_faceplate points out, we need perspective. I have to remind myself of this from time to time when I go grocery shopping searching for the "perfect" foods.

                I eat straight out of the supermarket, and I shop ONLY the sales. Drop the grains and beans, find your own personal sweet spot for carbs, take some fish oil, and you're 90% of the way there.

                  A lot of people will say grass fed is not a big deal. I was told the feed lot cows are fed out in a pasture until the last 9 weeks of their lives. I cant prove this, but i also dont care. I find a huge taste difference . I would say that the non grass fed doesn't even count toward your 20%. Enjoy life & have fun. Do what works for you within your budget.

                    I don't want to live in a world where people even consider non-grass fed beef counts towards the 20%. That's crazy talk.

                      eat leaner cuts and take fish oil. Reap the benefits of primal living.
