Meat, Milk, and Medicare

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

What a stew! Today’s ingredients: secrets you might not know about meat, the government crackdown on “criminal” raw milk farmers (aren’t there terrorists to find?), and the latest health care progress in Washington, D.C.

Where’s the Beef?

Swimming in saline, that’s where. A great article highlights ten secrets of meat you may not be aware of. To wit: many (most) packaged meats are injected with saline solutions to make them plumper, tastier and longer-lasting. No wonder we have blood pressure problems!

The great thing: with a little questioning, it’s easy to find quality meat. Don’t be shy!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
