These days there is a War on Meat. Vegetarians and Vegans have made their points very clear. And I have to say they have some good points. I don’t believe in CAFO’s (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation). They are harmful to the environment and cruel & crowded for the animals. When I purchase meat, I strive to get meats from humanely raised meats that are organic, and grass-fed in open fields. Now, I don’t have all the answers to the debate and I can acknowledge a well constructed point of view even if I don’t agree with it. I do believe, however, that if you’re going to eat meat support companies/farms that do it in the best ways possible to provide quality meats of the highest kind with the most humane protocols. And Yes it’s worth the extra money…..
Also, I do believe red meat should be eaten no more than 1 – 2x per week. Plus, wild caught fish is an excellent source of protein & healthy fats. Seek a variety of fresh meats – turkey, chicken, grass fed beef, etc. I don’t generally recommend lunch meat as it is processed, however, there are some good organic brands.
