    I don't even think I'd know where to find free-range whatnot lol. None of the meat I buy says it, except hotmone free which i guess its better than nothing

    Yeah, I don't eat grass fed either, unless someone somewhere is feeding it to me without my knowledge. I just have other places that need my fiscal attention at the moment. Things like "saving my cash so I'm not homeless or completely dependant on my boyfriend when I get laid off". That kind of stuff.

    Anyway, this thread reminded me about a photo shoot my non-primal boyfriend did this week. It was with a couple of fairly prominant chefs (best-selling books, TV shows) and he told me they were discussing trends in their line of work. According to these chefs, local sourcing and quality, seasonal foods are becoming more and more of a big deal with some of the better restaurants. And that's pretty impressive, especially considering this is Vegas, and almost nothing grows here. But they still find local sources for fish (NOT from Lake Mead, thank you), beef and vegetables.

    Vegas? I wonder where those Brazillian style restaurants get their meat~ love the variety, would be great if it was grass fed too!

    Just getting into this topic now, but I do know that vegetarian diet includes 'bedding material' from a diff species. As in industrial chickens & cows are fed pig shit & bedding, cows & pigs are fed chicken shit & bedding, etc. Vegetarian also means factory waste like spent oils, rotten crops, and past date junk food.

    Storebought & restaurant quality meat (unless you read otherwise on the menu/packaging) has been pumped full of about 10% brine to make it soft and salty, and mask the garbage flavor in the fats.

    Nothing I willingly eat. When I do want the treat of restaurant food, I vote with my dollars in places that use quality ingredients. Even then, I find homegrown is better.

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 think I'm a food-nazi, being that I don't judge others more highly coz they can afford or choose organic grass fed meat, or wild seafood, conversely I don't think less of anyone that cannot afford to eat meat other than CAFO. I just can afford it most of the time, but there certainly have been many times I couldn't & I ate whatever I could afford.

    Don't sweat it. Just avoiding grains & processed junk & sugar, those are HUGE. Bless your foods, no need to believe in a sky deity or a higher power. Just send some love into it, while chopping, cooking, mixing & eating whatever it is you have for your daily meal. It certainly can't hurt you to do so...

    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...
    Realistically it wouldn't come to eating soy cooked in soy oil because most restaurants serve some decent vegetarian options or meals with fish. I couldn't really care less if fish is farmed although most of it isn't locally. I don't eat expensive grass fed meat that much because I can't afford it, most of the meat I eat is game which is pretty cheap, even cheaper than CR meat. My brother hunts as well so I get venison for free a few times a year if I'm lucky.
