If you eat a lot meat, there is a good way to save money on it. Buy an entire pig or cow. It does cost an extreme amount of money to buy, but it lasts about a year and in the end you actually save a large amount of money because you don't need to buy meat for that entire year.
Just know you need a large freezer!

I have not eaten red meat in 37 years. I was a vegetarian for 20 years of that and vegan for 15 years. I also am the 'genetic nightmare' of my family, which means I have every inherited illness or condition, including cholesterol issues, that the elders in my family had. When someone starts telling me that I should consider not eating meat, I just politely tell them "my secret" and start walking away.
Healthy eating through the decades has probably helped with all of my ailments, including MS. This SparkPeople site is a wonderful tool. Just the awareness and information provided is inspiring and supportive.
