I won't give it up, but I have switched over to grass-fed beef. It's more expensive, but certainly no more expensive than junk food, and with planning and shopping the sales, it is a nutrition benefit I'm willing to pay for. I get both 96% lean and 92% lean when I get it ground, depending on what I use it for, and we never did have red meat more than once a week anyway, for the most part. Extra omega-3 fatty acids are only one of the benefits, and I tend to flirt with anemia, so red meat was recommended to stay in my diet. My cholesterol is 151, triglycerides are 56, so, nope, no plans to eliminate it.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
