non-depressing post for once!
I've posted thrice today but this time I sort of have to. It's a motivating post.
[B][SIZE=4]OMG![/SIZE][/B] I am so excited to report this.
1. After a skeptical search online, I was able to locate two LOCAL farms that sell [B]GRASS FED MEAT!!![/B]
2. One of the two chain groceries stores in town sells....wait for it....[B]KERRYGOLD BUTTER!!![/B]
*insert flailing Kermit the Frog gif*
I have to say I am excited and surprised to discover this; especially the butter. If I want anything relatively non mainstream in terms of food, I have to travel 45 minutes away from home (and then only on the weekend) to get it. Such a pleasant surprise, so unreal. In fact I had been planning to make a long distance trip to check out Publix and Kroger and see what the options were. It's a relief to know that for now I don't have to go more than 10 miles to get a primal staple. *fist pump* This truly does motivate me. I've never had or seen Kerrygold Butter before now (when my mom brought it home for me) so I can't wait to taste it. I'm mostly happy about the butter because there is a salmon recipe that is heavenly with butter so I can rejoice!
As to the grass-fed meat, that'll need some work. Mom and I have reached a kind of compromise over food and price. I told her that conventional meats and produce was totally fine BUT, when and if funds allowed, I'd like to purchase cleaner grass-fed/organic food. We're both happy with that. It's realistic and honestly I am done being obsessive, worrying about how clean it is and just giving up because I can't have it perfect. The purists can go kick rocks. I'm not savvy enough to say whether or not the local meat is any cheaper than what's at the store (depending on the cut) but I'm comforted to know that option is there! :)
