I’ve finally found a great place to buy meat that I can trust. And it’s affordable, thanks to groupon! Yay! This place sells local meat only, and you can visit the farms they buy from to ask questions! I’m planning to do that with my friends and our kids soon. I haven’t always bought organic, grass-fed, all that good stuff products. Yes, I have bought conventional beef, chicken, etc. sometimes that was all that was available to me. And even when I thought I was eating the best product at the grocery store that wasn’t always the case. Like this article that truly angers me. This is actually one of the places I shop. Sometimes it’s hard to know what we are truly getting unless we go to the source. It can be frustrating. However, I don’t want anyone to think that they can’t eat Paleo if they are buying conventional meat. Do what you can. We all don’t have access, time to seek out, or finances to buy certain products. However, personally buying better quality meats is becoming more and more important to me. I’m just happy I found a place to support my local farmers! Is this an important issue for you?
