Grass fed (and other fancy) beef

So *this* is how you're going to manage to spend $200,000 a year in retirement... it makes sense now! :D


:dead:

On the upside, between the 15% off code (SRF1519 if you all want to try it as per the screenshot) and that each ribeye is 1.2 lbs or more on average this works out to about $55/lb.

Given that I and the kids both prefer it strongly to "regular" beefs… well, there ya go.

The 2 steaks I have had from Snake River Farms have been topnotch. The Strip steak was by far the best. Silverskin in the Ribeye was only a limited detriment. I just cut around it. My friend Aaron buys the Waygu. His wife is an excellent chef also.

We had them for Lunch today. Went to his Moms Tiny House in the woods. All sorts of religious stuff laying around. Inscribed Tablets and shit. Just a little much. Tiny Houses are just small very expensive Studio Apartments somewhere inconvenient to get to in the Winter.

For more on this WTF topic, I think I'll do an experiment involving eating steaks or not eating them:

Both arms of the study: Alternate day fasting. Testing lipids once per day at a certain time, like 10 PM. On feed days try to stick to 50 grams of carbs per day and similar foods. The difference will be in dinner.

One group will test steaks, and thus saturated fat's effect. For that I'll weigh out 12 oz of wagyu hybrid ribeye--I'll make this sacrifice for science. This indicates a non-wagyu ribeye has 660 cal, 45 g fat (21 g saturated), 150 mg cholesterol, 66 g protein in that amount. This indicates wagyu hybrid cattle have about 41% more fat, at least in the non-ribeye cut they tested. I have no better data, though, so I'll assume that means 63 g fat of which 30 g will be saturated, and 212 mg cholesterol.

So what would I have to eat to hit 63 g fat, 30 g saturated, 212 mg cholesterol, 66 g protein to match (roughly) with the non-steak group? I want to maximize MUFAs in this group, so almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, macademias, pecans, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, avocados, dark chocolate.

80 g dark chocolate + 54 g macadamia nuts would give 60 g fat, 28 g saturated fat, and about 10 grams of protein. 2 scoops of whey protein isolate would take that to 60 grams protein. No cholesterol in this comparison but not sure what I can do about that.

Both arms of my test sound quite delicious, now that I think of it.

:D

Wife has vetoed my plan for chocolate + macadamia nut testing as a bad example for the kids. Science, people!

:D

Ordered myself some more steaks because I'm down to 2 left from my last order, one of which will be eaten tomorrow. In addition to the ribeye note the bavette and flat iron. (I also separately ordered some other wagyu ribeyes to be sent to my parents as a gift because I am a gracious child of theirs. I think they'll like 'em.)
