Where’s The Beef?

Where's The Beef? 1 I am sure by now many of you have heard  the reports that Taco Bell's beef is less than 35% beef and 65% other stuff. This alarmed many and did not surprise most. The latest reports say that this is a bogus report.

The President of the company recently issued a statement disputing it all.

The statement states  “Our recipe for seasoned beef includes ingredients you'd find in your home or in the supermarket aisle today:

88% USDA-inspected quality beef

3-5% water for moisture

3-5% spices

3-5% oats, starch, sugar, yeast, citric acid, and other ingredients that contribute to the quality of our product

Whenever you buy food that is massed produced do you honestly expect to get 100%. This is one of the reasons why I try to avoid fast-food and another reason why we are trying to eat a clean diet. I have even researched buying into a CSA- Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA would allow me to buy fresh veggies, fruit and meats directly from the farmer. This process  helps the farmer focus on their job and less on their cash flow. It is also a great way to teach the children about different fruits and vegetables while getting to know the farmer. Sounds like a win-win for all.  I am researching which one will work best for my family now. Check out http://www.LocalHarvest.org for more information.
