My Beef With Beef


I’m a meat eater. I always have been and would put my money on me always being one in the future. I crave it. Red meat especially. And I think that probably has to due with my difficulty to store iron. But lately, I have been VERY disappointing in beef. It seems so fake.

My fiance and I are very passionate about food and it being real. The less antibiotics, chemicals and other harmful substances used on it, the more we like it. In the summer we try to shop at farmers markets and buy local produce as much as possible. And we are very blessed to be able to more expenses around so that this doesn’t break us financially.

But lately, even the good beef just seems to blah!

This is why we have decided to find, meet, talk to and buy from a local farmer who we feel we can build a trusting relationship with. In the future, we will be moving out of state and our intention is to do the same thing there (wherever that may be) as well.

Al (my fiance) and I came to this conclusion after reading many articles about this topic, so I thought I would pass this information along to you. And quite frankly, this information only confirmed what our taste buds were telling us, which was simply that we had some serious beef with beef.
