    Chicken?

    Primal Fuel
    Any issue with eating a large amount of organic lean chicken meat? Grok likely did not eat much chicken. Thoughts?

    Organic and lean? Sure, shouldn't be a problem.

    Conventional chicken tends to be pretty high in PUFA, thus not well regard 'round here.

    Most of the Organic chicken I've bought is far from lean. I pass on the white meat usually and go for the fattier dark pieces, the ones with flavor.

    Life was much simpler before I knew what a PUFA was. Figured it was a polite way to fart.

    Grok didn't likely eat anything that's available at your average American grocery store. Chicken is fine.

    Organic as it pertains to the animals' diet only means the corn/soy is organic nonGMO. It's supposed to guarantee "natural activities," but largely doesn't. Pastured chicken (raised outside on pasture, not just "free range") is what you're thinking of. Conventionally raised animals have more fat due to their grain based diet, so that would equate to more PUFA and worse ratios.

    So. There is no reason to believe that organic has any less or more Omega 6 than "non-organic" chicken. The factor that affects Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratios is access to natural food like insects or grass outside of a cage.

    Actually, getting good meat is not too simple, and requires some effort. The last time I bought a chicken at Target (a "vegetarian fed, free range" one), its fat was oily and of rather dubious quality according to my digestive tract... There can be a huge difference between a $8 and an $18 chicken.

    As for Grok not eating chicken, I'm quite positive he did eat birds though...
