    Pork chops = Bad?

    Primal Fuel
    So my CW instincts tell me pork is somehow bad. I'm wondering what the MDA community thinks.

    Keep in mind I'm talking about regular, store bought pork. Not grass fed, organic, etc.

    I love pork chops. Particularly, I love shoulder chops and butt chops. Dark, fatty and delicious, mmmmmmmm....

    It's got more Omega-6 than beef which isn't spectacular. And the typical pork you buy in the store is raised in a pretty inhumane and environmentally sketchy manner. I do eat pork. I just tend to avoid factory farmed stuff.

    http://www.meatvideo.com should answer this question. Go for organic in which case it's good for you!

    See if you can't score a CSA share from a local farmer. I just did, and got 30 lbs of beef & pork for $175. It will feed us for a month!

    It's not made of wheat or other grains so your choice.. Pork chop or bread chop?

    Maybe not ideal, but if you're buying all CW raised meat, it is what it is.

    Once I tasted 100% pastured pork, there's really no going back to CAFO pork. I thought the difference was night and day between pastured/not pastured beef. Pork is a whole 'nother ball game. Pork actually has a wonderful flavor that you do not get in CAFO pork. Worth every extra penny (plus the humane raising/slaughtering side of things)

    Let's put this and many other questions in another perspective. If you are stressing over any part of adopting Primal, Paleo, what to eat, how to eat it, organic, non organic, local, not local, seasonal, not seasonal, spices, oils , Pufa, o6, o3, o9, grain fed, free range, fed this, fed that, lift this, lift that, cardio this, cardio that, Hit, Crossfit, body weight exercises, sand bags, barefoot, lead foot, and on and on and on.

    Stress = Cortisol. If you are stressing over it you are getting NOWHERE!

    Do the best you can within your means and make your peace with it. It absolutely has to turn into self-esteem or whatever you want to call how it lifts you up it in a positive way.

    How would Pork compare to Chicken and Beef in terms of health?

    I ask because pork is usually the least expensive meat...
