Grass fed meat
Hey folks. I'm new to the community. I read the free ebooks and now I'm reading The Primal Blueprint. Great stuff and I'm looking forward to starting everything. I have a question though. With grass fed meat being more expensive,is there maybe a second place runner up for a cheaper meat? I've tried searching ,but can't seem to find anything out. I figured someone on here might have an answer to this. Thanks in advance.
Yeah grass fed and hormone free can definitely be expensive. I got resourceful and found a local farm that delivers to my place. It cost me about 250 every time I order for one person. This last me about a month and a half mind you I'm a small person. I calculated this to be about less than 10 dollars a day for me to eat meat. To answer your question if you can't afford good quality meat then stick with the leaner cuts of conventional ones. I read somewhere that animals tend to store toxins in the fat. Don't quote me on that one though. I mean for myself I eat conventional meat from time to time ie. at work, going out to dinner and family gatherings. I don't worry too much about it. I figured I eat a lot better with the rest of society.

Are you familiar with Eat Wild .com and American Grass-Fed .com? What state are you in?
Yes, I am familiar with both. I live in Memphis, TN

If you really can't afford grass fed/hormone free meat, then pick leaner cuts of other meat, and cut away visible fat. That is where the nasties are.
