How to Shop the Meat Department of Your Grocery Store - Thomas DeLauer

I'm going to teach you how to shop the meat department in a way that you haven't been taught before. I'm going to show you the ins, the outs, the nutritional pieces, and just teach you a little bit about specific cuts, and different kinds of fat ribboning, and marbling and everything like that, so you can make a healthy, low carb, high fat choice, whether you're keto or not. It's Sunday morning, which means that we should take the hot rod out and have a little fun, and do this the right way. Let's head on to the grocery store and get us some meat.

The purpose of this video is to be able to go in a little bit more detail in a specific area of the grocery store. I do these videos all the time where I do grocery hauls and I go, a lot of times they end up being an hour and that's a long time. It's a lot of time for people to really commit to watching a video. I figure, okay, let's break them down into little sections of the grocery store where you can understand a little bit more about shopping healthily and doing keto and what kind of cuts of meat and things like that. Anyhow, that's what we're going to do today. We're going to just an Albertsons, which is just a regular neighborhood style, grocery store, supermarket, nothing crazy. Normally I'll do a Costco or an ALDI and kind of play up on the brand, but in this case it's more just about helping you.

All right, so we'll start at the poultry section just so we can get this out of the way. First and foremost on keto, if you're doing any kind of low carb or keto stuff, if you're going to go for a white meat, go for a leaner white meat. Hard part is with the fat that's in poultry, it's a low quality fatty acid profile. Because chicken is normally fed so much in the way of soy, so much in the way of just estrogenic stuff, it all ends up getting stored in their fat.

Beef isn't nearly as bad as chicken in this sense, like chicken and turkey. It makes it tough because you want to eat the fattier cut of meat. You want to eat the thigh, you want to eat the full drumsticks and stuff like that and in moderation, that's okay, but you have to remember if you're going to be eating a lot of it, you're going to be taking in a lot of omega 6's. We want that balance of omega 3 to omega 6 to be much better than that. I usually recommend staying away from this and if you can, if you're going to get this kind of stuff, try to get at least an organic form of the chicken thigh and drumsticks and stuff like that.

Now I want to pick a quick mention on turkey. If you're looking at turkey versus chicken, chicken is generally better than turkey. Turkey is loaded with a bunch of hormones and loaded with a bunch of antibiotics. The conditions in which they raise turkey is much worse than chicken, generally speaking. You're going to be better off getting some chicken than you are turkey, even with the leaner cuts. The other thing that's important to note is people don't always realize this and this stuff, it looks gross for people, but you can get the the livers and the organs and stuff and it's actually pretty darn inexpensive. Chicken liver, beef liver is going to be a little higher quality, but it's important to know this stuff because if you're looking, if you're doing keto, if you're doing any kind of fasting, this is going to be probably one of the healthiest ways for you to get minerals, but I don't want to gross you out on this video. We'll do a whole separate video on that at some point

Got ourselves a little meat. Hopefully got a little education out of this. Try to keep it simple. Again, if you have ideas for future videos like this where we just do little sections of the grocery store, please do put them down in the comment section below because it's really nice to do these quick little digestible pieces where I can go into a little bit more depth without boring someone for four hours on a full grocery haul video. In fact, if you want more information, just on specific cuts of meat and things like that too, put them down in the comment section below. As always, make sure you're keeping it locked in here on my channel. I'll see you in the next video.
