oh no not again

about 5 years ago i wrote these two blogs
whats for lunch mom

here is an excerpt from those blogs

whats pink slime
its the rejected fat blood left overs  sinew  left over bits from carcasses
that come from slaughter houses
thought that was what bologna was

all this junk is thrown into a machine spun around and whats left is
this stuff called pink slime

its also treated with ammonia then processed as an additive to
hamburger meat

makes me what a veggie burger

its then used in burgers at restaurants supermarkets and yes even
your kids cafeterias
well many fast food restaurants have quit using this stuff as the
word is out now

why dont they just microvave it and serve it on a cone and call
it hamburger cone like the famous chicken cone sold in austin
well the chicken cone is better and uses good parts of the chicken

now after writing this i didnt really think much
about it anymore
since this pink slime stuff got so much publicity
that hamburger folks and hamburger joints said
they quit using this left over pink slime in our burgers

since my diagnosis 6 years ago
i got pretty aggressive with my diet
i always tell folks
i am a 90% vegetarian

i dont eat a lot of meat
when i want a hamburger
i want a full 100% hamburger
with none of this pink slime stuff
squirted amongst all that meat

when we are going to eat a hamburger
at home
i go to the grocery store
get 100% free range grass fed no added stuff
hamburger meat
i want the best for my occasionally indulgence
in a good old juicy hamburger

as an aside
i follow the mind diet
heres my blog on it that gives a good explanation of what is in it

on the diet it says to limit red meat to 2-3 servings
a week
now i rarely ever eat red meat that often
but for those who do that limitation is not too bad

so now this pink slime
is oozing back again in our beef

the meat folks have fancy names for it
so when you shop for meat look for these secret words
so you wont get slimed

lean finely textured beef or lftb
textured beef
finely textured beef
boneless lean beef trimmings or blbt

those words look like something that would be on
the side of a dog food bag

i think legislation should be passed that they have to
call a spade a spade
it should say on the package
pink slime

truth in advertising for sure

so if you dont want to get slimed
buy good beef from a source that doesnt add all that
slimey slippery wet pink soft ice cream stuff to your

that said
if congress cant fix medicare social security health care
infrastructure sex trafficking of teenagers etc etc
its doubtful they will get rid of pink slime

but you have the power to not eat it
dont buy the stuff that has been slimed

i am ready for a good juicy 100% hamburger with jalepeno cheese
