Default Best meat options when we can't eat grass-fed...

What do you do when you are eating at someone else's house? eating out? at an event?

If you had to pick your poison what would it be?

Fish?
Seafood?
Steak?
Chicken?

I personally don't worry about it.

I suppose I'd pick chicken because it is illegal to raise them with antibiotics and hormones, but I don't worry that much about it for a single meal.

Whatever is closest to my mouth....but I like steak anyways...so I'll have to go with that tops. Mmmmmmm......swallow some fish oil....you'll be fine. Farmed fish is highest in AA pro-inflammatory Omega 6s...so I would put that on the bottom of the list.

I assumed from a pro-inflammatory stand point you would want the piece of meat that had the lowest % of fat since that is what's really hurting in grain fed vs. grass fed? Is this logical? So say, boneless/skinless chicken breast or wild salmon vs. steak ?

grain fed anything will have more omega 6s...but if it's lean cuts then really there's no need to sweat over it on occasion. Farmed salmon by far is the worst. I really don't crave chicken...so I would go for wild fish or steak....unless it was chicken wings with hot sauce and a Guinness and then this whole discussion is pretty much went out the window....probably of a bar.....
