    quality meat

    Primal Fuel
    I know the point of all this is health. Therefore, I do not want to be eating meat the isn't of high quality. Ideally my beef would be organic, grass fed, my chicken wouldn't contain antibiotics or hormones, and so on. However, I live on a small Caribbean island and finding quality meat is very difficult. What to doooooo?

    Buy the best that is available. That's your only choice.

    Lots of seafood!! And what about goat meat? Local is probably your best bet.

    I think that a good rule of thumb is to get meat (all food really) with as short a supply chain as possible. Ideally, farmer -> you.

    Absolutely this. Fish > red meat (despite how it might seem around here sometimes).

    Do the best you can. It's not always possible or feasible to stick to a pure form of primal in which one eats only organic, grass-fed, free-range...etc. It seems to be that your small island can offer a lot more nutritious, local foods than most of us can get anyway. And seafood's gotta be cheaper. I would do some research on the safer types of fish to eat that contains little contaminants and heavy metals, and supplement your diet with local produce, of which there's bound to be plenty.

    I heard that a lot of the selenium in fish negate most of the effects of the mercury you would be absorbing.
