Local grass fed butter vs coconut oil from the other side of the globe? Is local always the best way to go?

I prefer coconut oil for high heat applications like searing meat. I prefer butter for taste though.

One option might be to get something like 23andMe done and figure out where your genes fall, then try to eat according to the heaviest regions that comprise your DNA. Might be false logic, but seems like it would be interesting.

Beef bones are not small like fish or rabbit bones. I don't see any reason why you should have bone shards in your meat. Or {shudder} plastic in your venison. I'd call and complain--for a couple of reasons: First, the farm needs to know that... (more)

It's not cheap, but Trader Joe's carries grass fed and finished ground beef for $6.95 a pound. I like that we can buy it when we do our regular shopping--no special trip, mail order, etc. That's worth a few dollars a pound, IMHO.

Pigs are omnivores, they'll eat just about anything. Ask him if the grain is non-GMO, which is about as important in a pig as grass-feeding a cow.

Try it! (Unless you have to buy a side of it at once?) 85/15 is the lowest I go with ground beef, so you could add some fat or skip it. Steaks depend on the breed and pasture. We had 3 local producers where we used to live and I only liked... (more)
