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.
