    Varying meats?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Just wondering if anyone tends to ignore (purposely or not) one form of meat or another. For example, do you tend to eat a lot of chicken and fish and not much beef? Or just fish - nothing else?

    Is it ok to be sparing in one area and eat more in another area?

    Oh! and just wanted to throw into this thread that I tried bear for the first time a couple of weeks ago! That definitely has opened my eyes (and stomach) up to more possiblities than what's found in a store.

    Just remember, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes...



    But back on topic, I'm one of the millions who can't stomach the the thought of eating fish. Of any sort. So I don't.

    I don't eat nearly as much fresh seafood as I would like. ($$)

    I also don't eat much chicken, since I don't have a local source for them. I'm still looking.

    I tend to cycle through the main species, but not consciously. Pork is very autumnal, at the minute I'm all about the fish (mostly tinned, sadly). Beef and lamb go in major rotation, but chicken tends to be scattered more randomly. Game is of course seasonal, if available.

    But maybe I'm weird

    DR - grow your own?

    I probably eat too much pork, chicken, and turkey because they're cheap. We're on a tight budget at the moment. My favourite meat is beef (mmmm, steak!) and I do like lamb and duck. While I enjoy seafood, I don't eat too much of it anymore as I was spoiled by west coast fish markets for 3 years in Vancouver, and seafood in Ontario is comparatively expensive and not as good. I'd like to find a good source for QUALITY seafood one day.

    Personally, I tend to be like this - I tend to get "stuck" on one thing for a period. But with a fam. of 5 there are all the other opinions in the house to consider. *eyeroll* lol

    Beef is now a household favorite. We like chicken and I often splurge to get wild caught alaskan salmon on the table. I don't like turkey much anymore and pork is fine with me. I guesse I am fairly open to eating all meats except those that are my personal friends.

    Beef and chicken tend to be regular appearances on our table, most meals are one or the other. Geek doesn't care for most seafood, so I only get those at restaurants or when he's out of town. Neither of use cares for turkey or pork that's not bacon or sausage, so that never hits our menu. Lamb, buffalo, and goat occasionally make an appearance if they're on sale or I'm making chili. Shrimp gets on the menu when it's on sale. Sushi/ sashimi is about an once every couple month splurge.

    I have a 12 yr old daughter who is VERY picky (and a major carbavore) and a wife who only came around to primal in the last 6 months. We don’t want to force the primal food on our daughter all at once. However, we consistently eat a primal dinner whether my daughter likes it or not. Beef, chicken, and pork are in regular rotation in my house for family dinners (mostly conventional - we just can't afford the grass fed organic stuff right now). Fish, Turkey, lamb, and duck make an appearance once in a while if they’re on sale (just got some lamb stew meat on sale last week).

    I would love to get my hands on some wild game. Someday I’ll take up hunting.

    I personally eat some form of canned fish for lunch at least 3-4 days per week (clams, oysters, sardines, salmon, mackerel or tuna) for lunch. I also eat organic grass fed beef liver and heart at least once per week (Cheaper due to the” yuck” factor); usually liver with eggs for breakfast and heart with my lunch.
