Not to be a downer BUT "Fukushima Radiation More Than 10 Times The Normal Level Is Detected On California Beaches". I hate to be an alarmist but the fact of the matter is Cesium 137 has a half life of 30 years. It is cumulative concerning your diet. I'm not too keen on adding that to my diet. Watch where canned fish are caught (read labels/check websites). I'll stick with Brunswick brand canned fish for now. I can't afford the 10X price of Atlantic vs Pacific salmon right now. My body can't afford the extra radiation for the next 30 years either.

With apologies to the west coast fishermen, it sucks to be down stream from Japan but don't expect me to sacrifice my health for your income.

Where was that fish caught again?

The new one here in my town, they had that sale going for the last week as well. Stocked up on celery, carrots, onions and more. Been making soups, doing dehyrating and getting ready for some canning. Love those deals.

No Frills, packs of 15 water bottles for $1 (ok, it's more with taxes and deposit fee, but still a decent deal).

Tomorrow is 10% Tuesdays at Safeway. First Tuesday of the month. Noticed they had pasta and sauces on sale as well as cereals.
Their not the cheapest place in town but it is always clean, good for Airmiles and I can't stand supporting Walmart on general principle.

Not on sale, in fact far from it BUT Calgary COOP has introduced a new line of pork and beef product called Perfect Pork and Perfect (Alberta) Beef. The advantage of these products is the lack of hormones and antibiotics used in raising the animals. That said, boneless sirloin tip roast runs $16.90 per KG and T bone steaks run :shock: $48.26 per KG. A hefty price to pay but a convenient supply of organic meat.

know where they get that beef. i work at a feed lot that supplies beef to a very large slaughter house that supplies beef to most fast food restaurants, one in particular that says the same thing. and i know for a fact all the cattle we feed have aditives. hell we have even started feeding them tallow (rendered beef fat) again. all i am saying is do not trust what they tell you.

Not that I know much...but u r 100% correct on that 86. Ha,ha,haaaaa...and that's just what the animal eats (in the feedlot). There are also the upstream processes to consider (well, maybe not...ignorance is bliss???)...the processing + mixing of the feed...where the components of the feed originated...etc. And last but not least...the types of processes and manner that the slaughter, processing, and storage of the meat that u buy at the store (and is either cryovac'd or in a tray pack with a soaker)...... Let's just say that I'm much more comfortable dropping my deer loin on the garage floor then on the kitchen floor (and at most wiping it on my jeans) before tossing it on the BBQ....just sayin'.

Some people would beg to differ. The source of this beef is http://www.heritageangus.ca/en/index.php It costs more because it is NOT production line feed lot beef. You can see the difference in the beef sitting on the shelf next to feed lot beef. Far less fat marbling and the meat is darker as well.

Really, there is more than one way to raise beef.

Sorry phrased that wrong, nice to know you can get good beef still. I will pay extra for good beef, I haven't really consumed beef since working here, with all the additives and crap they are feeding them.
