I am on a budget and do not have access to grass fed beef. I in fact even have to eat a decent amount of pork/chicken because of this and I try to go for the leaner cuts of meat. I know that that most of the issues with conventional meats are in the fat, so how does this translate to ground beef? Aren't ruminants the best choice?
Main question is: How bad is it to eat 90% lean ground beef from conventional cows due to the fact that ground beef is fat/muscle mixed throughout and there is no way to "trim the fat" here? Would I be better off eating the chicken/pork cuts due to being able to cut off the n6-heavy fat?
Edit: The meats I get come from wegmans and this link shows how they treat their animals. http://www.wegmans.com/pdf/AnimalWelfareChart.pdf
It seems my best bet would be to get the "food you feel good about" beef. I will do some looking around next time I am in the store.
