  • Real ALL natural meat

    It's really hard for me to keep buying real all natural meat. I'm trying to stay as primal as possible, dairy is my 20 % (Cheese on my eggs, plain eggs just taste so bleh) but it's getting hard to keep buying all nat. meat. I'm a high-school student getting ready to go into college. I'm just trying to find a cheap, all natural protein to eat (Eggs work nice, but I can't eat eggs all the time) I tried with fish, wild caught canned salmon got to be expensive. I don't really care about taste and variety, I'll just eat w.e my mom cooks on the weekend (usually something with no steroids/hormones added meat), and the rest of the time stick to w/e cheap source of all nat. meat I can find, no matter how plain, boring, and repetitive it becomes, anyone got suggestions??

    Any meat is better than no meat. I.e. even the cheapest, crappiest meat is going to be better than pasta or candy bars. You should check out costco and other bulk supply places. They often have low priced meat of average or better-than-average quality. You might need a mini freezer to keep it all, but they're a great place to get conventional meat. They even have frozen, pre-cooked meat if all you have is a micrwave.

      I wouldn't stress over it too much. Most of the meat Grok ate was probably semi-rotten remains of other animals' kills - ie, the palaeolithic equivalent of road kill.

        That certainly doesn't mean it was ideal.

          I don't know what "ideal" is, and have never met anyone who did, so I'm not real worried about it.

          And that's ignoring the rather obvious slippery-slope aspect...

            It may be tough to specify ideal, sure, but we do know some is better than others. So saying don't worry about corn-fed hormone-injected beef because some caveman might have eaten rotting meat is a bit broad to me. I agree with you in saying don't worry about it, though, but for different reasons.

              My family can't afford organic/grass-fed, etc. I have still lost 11lbs in 3 months by staying away from grains. Do what you can afford.

                If the "do like Grok" meme is meant to be taken seriously, eating two-day-old roadkill would be fairly close to ideal, since that is the closest we have to what would have likely been the bulk of Grok's meat intake, and is therefore ideal-by-definition.

                On top of that, since it is the weakest/sickest members of a herd that typically get eaten/caught, a Grok-like perspective would have us valuing things like downer cattle, instead of trying to ban them from the food chain.

                Needless to say, I'm not a big buyer-in on the "WWGD" meme.

                  I'm not trying to lose weight, I'm under weight, I'm just trying to eat all nat. as much as possible. I hate the thought of eating that hormone filled crap

                    Me too. Raise my own pork and chickens, shoot my own venison.

                    But, if I may be so bold as to offer, there are far worse things in the supermarket than what one finds in the fresh meat section...

                      I live in Indiana too, I should really be-friend a farmer.... In an effort to save money, my mom bought a different version of all natural eggs from the large brown ones I usually get. I go look at the package and learn that these chickens are fed a "healthy" vegetarian diet of CORN and SOY PROTEINS -_- fml

                        It hurts me to say that only the rich can be truly primal these days.

                          No that is not true.
                          The meat we buy that is hormone free/grass fed etc, is from a butcher who gets it straight from his farm to shop, and there is no middle man, its the same price, and in some cuts cheaper than the supermarket. Maybe this kind of butcher might be harder to find for most, but they must be out there.

                            The amount we spend on food has not gotten more expensive at all. All the money you aren't spending on packaged foods/takeaways, could go to your meat.

                              We get our meat straight from the farmer (of course, you need a chest freezer for that and since you are a kid you probbaly can't afford to buy a cow at a time).

                              I wouldn't worry about it. Just avoid all of the processed foods, cereals, PUFAs, sugar etc and you're 80%+ of the way there.
