Exactly Kuno1chi. Texan, I may be young enough to be your kid but I am living on federal student loans, trying to get through grad school independently. During the summer I am required by my program to work full time for no pay. Every dollar I spend today will have to be paid back at 8.25% interest over 10 years. When I am making an income, I look forward to being able to do things like take care of my local economy and environment but for now my priority is the health of my body and my future finances.
I'm in Virginia and was very disappointed my local TJs discontinued their line of grass fed flank steaks. Last weekend I was happy to see them offering grass fed ground beef. What disturbs me though, is the "product of Australia and Uruguay" Which is it? Are they using muscle meat from one continent and fat from another? Sounds suspicious to me. Costco also has grassfed ground beef for $4/lb, but they also label "product of country x,y, and z".
I get grass fed 85/15 at Whole Foods for $5.99 lb.
