BBC News - Calories busted by cafe culture
Holy cow! Who knew that cakes and milkshakes had loads of calories in?!
Where in Missouri are you? If you're in St. Louis, there are farmers markets that sell grassfed, or did two years ago when I was living there.
Farmers Markets in the St. Louis Area
The Clayton Farmers market and I suspect the one at Schlafly will have grassfed/free-range eats. I do not remember Soulard having any, but that may have changed since I left.
US Wellness Meats is located there, so maybe call them up?
Lara Bars are my emergency backup food when I'm heading into parts unknown. I am admittedly NOT as fastidious about my meat sources when I'm traveling; I look for steak or pork unadulterated and consider it "good enough" for a trip. If I had to stock up a family, I'd probably invest in a cooler and make sure wherever I was going to had a kitchen.
Is seafood a valid option for you? What about lamb?
For shopping, either the local hippymart or farmers markets may be your best, most reliable bet. Good luck.
My Primal Meanderings
A few days ago, (after an evening of not inconsiderable drinking) I crashed at a friend’s place. The next morning we opted to make breakfast rather than go out. She asked me how many eggs I wanted. Not wanting to eat ALL of her food I replied, “Three.”
Cue look of abject horror. “Three!” she said, “Oh my god, that is a LOT of eggs!” I meekly replied that it really wasn’t and I often eat four egg omelets, (or six egg omelets but there was no way I was going to say THAT). “Oh no, that is too many eggs. Girls our size should only eat one or two eggs.”
Um, one egg and half a grapefruit is not a meal thankyouverymuch. I ate a real meal once I got home.
Me: So, that's that new thing I'm doing.
Girlfriend: Sounds like you're eating a lot of meat, and it's fattening...
Girlfriend: I'm going to have Coco Pebbles for breakfast...
Down from 275 to 250!

Some fact, a lot of fiction! Keep track of my progress there!
To continue on the St. Louis Missouri theme.....
The Tower Grove Farmer's Market definitely has grass fed beef. The folks who run the market also have a small grocery store and restaurant called Local Harvest (Local Harvest Grocery, LLC - Purveyors of Local and Organic Groceries in St Louis, Missouri) and I know they carry lots of good stuff as well.
Trying a journal. We'll see how long that lasts....
