A lot of you all are downing the vegans and such, but I have to tell you, I spent 16 years in that lifestyle because of the horrible conditions of MOST meat. We transitioned to WEston A Price two -three years ago and then I read Mark's book. I told my kids we would eat meat when we knew where it was coming from and it wasn't being fed corn since almost all government (sold to the military) meat is corn fed, corn finished, same as McDonalds.

Here I am this week, we traveled from RI to OH then to MO and I could not find grass fed beef (It's too lean and tough to handle one abbatoir said), don't even think about pasture raised chicken, Tyson is king here. I resorted yesterday to eating one of those roasted at the store chickens just so I could eat. And what do you tell people in restaurants? They just don't get it.
It's depressing. I want to make this easier as a transition for my family and yet all I get is "Are you sure you don't want pasta, (canned) beans, noodles, bread, something with that?" "Nope, just a salad and a steak will do."
I do care where the meat comes from, how it's been raised, how it's been finished. I do care what we eat.
Any suggestions for traveling? I had cooked some chicken and hamburgers for the trip, but well, they're getting rangy, if you know what I mean. I can buy stuff, but here in the midwest, it's hard to find.
Very hard to find.
