    I can't afford to eat only grass fed meat

    Primal Fuel
    Based on the above statement, how much damage am I doing by not being able to feed myself with grass fed meat?
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

    not much really since red meat has better ratio than pork or poultry. if ur concerned just buy lean meats, like top sirloin.

    I travel so often I can't find grass fed meat, so I feel your pain. Just focus on getting the best cuts you can afford and don't worry so much about the grass fed. I would personally spend my money on quality fats like grassfed butter, lard, etc if you are able.

    grass fed is great, but not an absolute necessity. i eat mostly conventional meat, but make it a point to get the best quality i can find where i shop, get the leaner options (toxins are stored in the fat), and supplement with fish oil. the main reason for eating grass fed is the omega ratio, so fish oil or good quality fish a couple of days a week will do you just fine.

    I can't either. So it's fish most days for me. Canned mackerel is 1.69 per can and frozen salmon 4.00 for frozen side that makes three dinners. So 8.00 per week for salmon and 1.69 x about 4 for mackerel in my lunch. I'd rather eat the toxins in fish than the antibiotics and pesticides and herbicides in conventional beef.

    Awesome folks, thanks.

    Don't let perfect be the enemy of good. I'm in the same boat and mostly I use lean cuts and add coconut oil when I cook (or use a wet cooking method like braising, boiling, or crock pot/dutch oven, maybe adding a little EVOO as appropriate) to avoid the *bad* fats.

    You can even do the coconut oil thing with ground beef if you have the butcher grind a lean cut special for you.

    I like that.
    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    Yup, that's a good way to look at it.
