    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I never buy any low fat milk.
    Whole milk is the best for us.

    Learn to hunt and fish. You'll have the freshest leanest cleanest meat you could possibly eat. Take for instance venison, 99 percent lean with no growth hormones or chemicals to worry about. It'll also save you big bucks at the store not to mention the hiking involved to get to the good hunting/fishing spots is good exercise.

    Yeah but bumpers are expensive and I hate having to powerwash the gore off my truck just to make some jerky.

    Animals and fish are still affected by the environment that they live in. Not all of us have access to pristine waters and land from which we can hunt/fish. There are places near NYC, and I'm guessing Boston as well, where eating locally-caught fish are harmful. And if those waters are so polluted that I can't eat the fish, would I chance it to eat the animals who eat/drink from those same waters?

    I realize that you are writing from Williamsburg, MO and not Williamsburg, BK.

    That's true however you don't have to go far from a big city to get to better grounds either. A decent sized deer will yield around a 100 pounds of meat so a few hours drive to upstate NY would be well worth it. Fishing is a bit more tricky. I live in the middle of nowhere but if you eat the fish from a pond that has runoff from a crop field you'll eat a lot of poison. The thing is you are in control of the when, how and from where factors which is way better than most store bought items.

    What he said. I kill 2 or 3 deer a year and never have to buy red meat, which is nice considering I don't like factory farms and try not to support them.

    Not sure if you saw this, Señor Crane, but this is what I got in November.

    Other than that, it's O.J., Purple Stuff, Soda, and Sunny D.

    Even better tip; for all you single people, just buy what you are going to eat that day, especially if you live near a WF or TJ, or even better.

    When you buy a whole truck load of shit, by the time you get to some of it, it isn't that fresh anymore. I think it's very important to go buy things every day, because it makes you conscious of what you're eating, and makes it a bit more fun. Even when I'm trying to eat very lean and strict, I still like standing in front of the produce section and the meat counter and thinking what can I do with what's in front of me? You'll always have fresh stuff, and you'll probably save money. If it's anything like in my house as a kid, or the like many of my friends, you end up buying a lot of stuff you never really end up eating.
