    Its all down to what is available in the part of the world you live. I can buy anything on your list..at a price. I buy all three from a farmers market that's home grown, so I just eat all three types of meat and try not to worry about it.

      I think the OP plans to eat all 3 and is asking which one to get from a better source if he/she has to pick only one due to budgetary constraints. That's how I answered it. If he/she's going to ONLY eat one of the 3 animals' flesh, beef is the winner, hands down.

        @RichMahogany - You are right. I want to incorporate all of the meats at this time - that is what I have been eating since..well forever...and I do not want to drop one over another.
        Since starting the Meal Plan provided by the Primal Blueprint folks, I have bought a few grocery store 'steaks' and have been less than impressed. The pork (tenderloin) and chicken (usually thighs) have been quite good (my meats of choice since always). I have tried the wild salmon canned, and thought it was alright, a matter of getting used to. The wild stuff is way out of my price range. I love pickled herring, so that's been a small snack here and there. Eggs have been a staple. Kangaroos do not exist on my continent so eating them is a no-go unless I kidnap one from the zoo lol!

        I think that grass fed/local beef is something I will incorportate into my diet once I get an intuitive sense of how to shop for everything else to balance costs.

          Also here our beef is majority grass fed as a rule, so pretty tasty and healthy, though not totally free from soy feed supliment, or un-nessassary drugs. Chicken is pretty crummy but freedom foods or Co-ops chicken is rasied to better standard and not much more, free range is a bit of a step up and then organic even better. Pork, well I only buy UK pork so it is better treated than EU pork, but IMHO if you can get free range outdoor reared pork, and even better pork fed on a natural diet the taste is a world better than the conventional raised stuff.

          So if I was going to up one thing it would be pork for taste and chicken for price. But that is coming from a UK viewpoint.

            Fair comment

            I guess I eat more chicken than anything as I can source good quality stuff and its cheaper than beef. out of the three I would dump Pork.
