    ^^this.

    i realize some places are just choked to death with chain-chain-chchchchch-chain, but for those of us who live elsewise, patronize small businesses. that means local, indie restaurants.

    i have worked in fine-dining all my life. the chefs are intense fanatics. they have spawned many chefs with equal passion, but smaller wallets. (at least to start, lol.) they are the main reason for the serious snout-to-tail movement in my city. they buy a whole organic heritage pig and use every bit. some chefs will chip in and split a cow. it's AWESOME!! and we get to eat stuff i will never have the patience to make.

    2nd to that is farm-to-table. but it is real. i've met lots of the farmers, both of land and sea, and it's super cool.

    eat at applebee's at your own risk, but there are plenty of other dining options for real food.

    speak with your wallet. keep your health.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I'm just the opposite - I'll take cheap turkey over tofurkey every single time! Glad those are not my choices, though.

    You are aware that there are restaurants that serve good meat right?

    Locally we have a restaurant that serves wild boar, bison, elk, grass fed beef, grass fed lamb, quail, duck, and rabbit...
    Actually there are several places local that offer grass fed beef, it's just NOT that hard to find.
    Plus lots of places that serve fish/shell fish that is wild caught.

    Seriously... going out for dinner doesn't have to have "gross meat" involved.
    Just stay away from chains mostly.
    Though I don't mind a Chipotle bowl on occasion... sometimes it's the best option if away from home (traveling, appointments and won't be home in time to cook, etc)... steak, rice, peppers/onions, tomato pico, hot sauce, and guac! Not bad at all.

Part of being aware means you can't cheat without guilt. Even so, I strive to be more aware of what I put in my body every day.
    By "people" I'm guessing you mean your friends and family...
    Wow, you sound FUN to socialize with.
    I'd seriously stop inviting you... and I actually agree about meat quality. But ranting is juvenile and uncalled for. Period.

    And as far as the idea that someone had rather eat a soyvegmeatsubstitute cooked in soybean oil... Whatever!
    Even if a real turkey was fed soy in it's grain mix, it wouldn't be as bad for you... birds are meant to digest grains.
    But we all make our own choices.

    In theory, I agree. I'd intellectually chose the soy crap before the battery chicken. But faced with the IRL choice, I will always opt for the meat or fish, no matter the source, if I'm genuinely hungry when I place my order.

    Now would I eat tainted pork or spoiled seafood, or fish with lots of heavy metal?, hell no. I got REALLY sick once in Bangkok from eating bad prawns. Never again, if I can help it...

    I'm sorry, I just ate so much tofu & chickpea/wheat burgers, soy burgers in the 90s that I'm just done & if I never eat another fake burger in my life, great. I'll take commercial meat over a fake burger any day. Just not every day...

    Wow, this whole thread just made me feel like a piece of Paleo-poop. I don't eat any "organic, grain free meat" just because it's too expensive and it's rather difficult to obtain it where I live. So I just live off of commercial meat then. I know it's not the greatest and I shudder when I think of the conditions those animals are forced to live in, but I make the best of it anyway.

    I don't always eat grass fed because I can't drive.
    And not driving means not making long trips to the butcher when husband is working... but quick trips to the local grocery.

    Don't sweat what some crazy food-nazi thinks.
    Husband and I prefer the little privately owned places that serve the grass-fed/wild game and stuff mostly because we prefer to support the local business owners when we go out instead of the big Chain places... that's all.
