  • Organic mince meat

    I still can't shake the idea that lots of meat consumption causes colon cancer, i find mince meat much cheaper than steak, but even though it's organic i can't shake the idea that it's unhealthy? moreso than steak at least

    I eat this meal 4 times a week, is it ok? It's a simple bolognaise basically

    Organic mince meat cooked in butter
    Can of plum tomatoes
    slices of bell pepper/spinach/mushrooms left to cook in the boiling tomatoes/mince meat
    a little sea salt

    Is this a good primal meal or not? (typically i have an omelete for breakfast and a BAS for lunch)
    Thanks in advance

    It's fine.
    If meat killed humans, we'd be extinct already.
    Meal sounds good to me, similar to one of my basic/staple dishes.

    You could think of mince as being from the same beast as the steak - just the trimmings that don't look pretty in the polystyrene tray...

      thanks for the reply, yea i dont mean from an ethical point of view but from health, i guess you are right though its not like mince is made from a different animal!
      Good to hear it's a good meal as well, i love it!
      I have located a local butchers and will start shopping there from now on after getting food poisoning from a tescos steak

        I'm assuming by "mince" you mean what Americans call ground beef, and not the sweet mincemeat concoction they have around the holidays, yes?

        If so, then yes, totally fine. If you're mixing sultanas, molasses and mince in with your bolognese, we have bigger problems than health,

            Yes, those of us from the UK & colonies call it mince (meat), because you use a mincer to make it. Obviously you US folk call a mincer a grinder hence you have . . . .

            Can someone satisfy a sudden question that popped up in my head - what do Canadians call it?

                We call it ground beef/chicken/turkey/pork/etc.

                  Just as a completely irrelevant aside, my husband does put sultanas in bolognese. And he was raised in London.

                    Canadians are usually closer to the States then the rest of the Anglophonic world on these matters.

                    They're also ambivalent about soccer.

                      I've never understood why soccer isn't more popular here in the states. When I was a kid, that was the sport everyone played. Little league baseball, American football, and basketball weren't nearly as popular. Yet now that we're grown, we can't be bothered to pay attention to it even though the rest of the world loves it.

                        A) sounds like a good,simple,quick recipie; B) monkeygirl is right; C) the opinion is out there that we have a higher occurance of colon cancer than many "healthy" eating asian populations due to higher meat/fat intake. i don't buy it. i think it may be related to low fiber intake. not sure,of course: D) many "healthy" eating asian populations have a much higher incidence of gastric cancer,which is rare here. hard to say what any of that means. likely more grist for the CW/government make us obey mill.

                          sometimes I think that ground meat is actually healthier than a steak... b/c it's got all those tough parts we have grown accustomed to avoid...

                              Women's soccer is gaining in popularity faster than men's soccer, I think. But yeah, it's kind of weird, especially considering how many immigrants to Canada come from huge soccer-loving nations.
