When buying GF ground beef (I usually buy other cuts) and I have a choice of "lean" percentage, I divide the price per pound by the lean percent and then buy the "cheapest" one. I figure I'm buying the protein. This seems like a good value... (more)

I've started paleo recently, and find that I'm eating 3/4 lbs of 75% lean grass fed ground beef a day, with about 1/4 lb of grass fed organ meat ( heart, in this case.) Is this too much meat? Too much protein? Thanks

If you're going for serious bone broth, add a little vinegar, a lot of water, and let them simmer 24 to 72 hours. Don't add vegetables early in the process; they tend to get bitter. You won't really need a base (you mentioned tallow) it will take... (more)

grass-fed beef is naturally leaner, as grains are used to fatten up cattle, as it is not part of their natural diet. You can get leaner grain-fed if you have too, but the fat in grass-fed is healthy with higher concentrations of Omega-3 and CLA... (more)

Meatloaf. You can slice it and individually freeze the slices. Make the seasoning fairly neutral and use different sauces when you eat it so as not to get bored. I, however, would never get bored eating meatloaf.
