This doesn't happen all the time, but I'm in college and had to go to the closest grocery store the other day to pick up enough meat to last me a couple of days. All the meat was conventional, of course, but there were also no lean meats. I've been trying to lower my Omega-6 intake, so I wanted to avoid poultry/pork products and go for the beef. But since the fat is "toxic" (according to Whole9 guidelines), I should get the leanest meat available, which was a turkey product (8g fat per serving vs. 17g fat in the beef product). So what's more important to prioritize in this situation? Quantity or type of fat, when choosing from among conventional meat products? Thanks

Drain off the fat when you cook it.
