Price of beef – how high can it go?


Is that why “red meat” is bad for you?

When’s the last time you ate a fast food burger?  Are you waiting for ground beef to go on sale at the grocery?  Did your kiddos eat at the school cafeteria , have you checked the menu lately?

“Pink Slime” is whats being served in most school districts.  The slime is essentially the glue holding the meat together.  Its not really glue but it can’t be much worse!!

Saving THREE CENTS a pound off production costs and making $440 million/year in revenue the FDA has allowed the beef industry use fatty slaughterhouse trimmings treated with ammonia as a filler in ground beef.

Is that why some critics say that “red meat” is bad for you?

In January fast food restaurants stopped serving pink slime, I wonder what Bowling Green schools serve, does anybody know?

Here is a quick newscast from Denver I found about the pink slime zqak7r04

It’s my Blog, I’ll Post if I want to

My favorite time of year is here bc everyone is mindful of getting the year started on a positive note with new year resolutions and fitness memberships.  My personal training studio doesnt peak this time of year but traffic increases significantly and we start to have more fun when we workout.

I haven’t been active posting on my blog lately but today I wanted to after this mornings Robin Shea Show and talking with the “beef industry” suits.  I wanted to get this down on my blog so I can always refer to it when I talk with people and specific body types.

“Every diet, every organic food, every frozen vegetable, fried tomatoes, grain-fed beef, farm raised fish, pesticide free crop will nourish your body, but not all is of good quality to eat.  Each human being on Earth will lose weight if they eat less than the day before, just like every book is a children’s book if the kid can read. “

I always choose Quality over Quantity and tell all my clients “EAT to LIVE not LIVE to EAT”
