When grocery shopping, it helps to walk directly to the meat section and fill your cart or basket! You will find that there are so many choices within the meat section – different cuts and beautiful pieces you have yet to try!
It is exciting to be able to spend your grocery time and money exploring the meat section. Choose different cuts or types of meat. You’ll be resetting your palate and relearning (or possibly even learning for the first time) how these meats taste. It is a fun adventure and exploration.
I like to purchase large cuts (like roasts) because they tend to be less costly, and then I cut it up into smaller pieces at home. I put those smaller cuts in my broiler. If you have a pressure cooker, you might consider purchasing tougher cuts of meat to pressure cook. Family packs of meat can be a great option and are often sold at a discount.
Some people recommend checking online or in the store’s ad for sales. However, if researching sales feels time-consuming, it can be most helpful to avoid complications and just go directly to the store. Buy meat that looks delicious to you and fits within your budget. Peruse, find what’s appetizing, and experiment by coach trying different cuts and types of meat. Remember to also peruse the seafood section, if you can tolerate seafood.
The frozen food section often has packages of ground beef burgers, which are great to keep in the freezer for quick, easy meals. You can mix and match – such as enjoying a delicious plate of scallops, with butter and sea salt, alongside your steak! It is exciting to try new meats! That excitement will keep you motivated for your next grocery shopping trip!
Most importantly when shopping, go directly to the butcher area/meat/seafood section. Ignore the other sections that are filled with cardboard and cans. Who wants to eat cardboard or cans? Yuck! Proceed directly to the meat department and don’t look back. You’ll find many fresh, beautiful choices of real food in the meat department.
