Is conventional organ meat good vs grass-fed

Hi guys,

I am from montreal quebec in canada and I am tight on the budget. I wanted to know if it is Ok for my health to eat conventionnal organ/offals/liver meat from chicken and Beef(cattle).

I am afraid that organ meat or liver coming from a conventional cow is worst than the muscle, I feel that if the cow as been fed antibiotic that all the bad stuff will be in the liver and the organ, am I wrong?

What is better eating conventional muscle meat or conventional organ meats? Which is better.

Because for grass-fed obviously the organ is better than the muscle.

And if you guys have eatan conventional organ meat, as your health been okey for the last year or 2 years? I could make my diet half offals from conventional and half offals from grass-fed this way I save lots of money but if conventionnal offals/organ is bad for me than I should not get it

Conventional offal is fine. Don't overthink it. Don't justify eating crap because you somehow think perfection isn't attainable. (i.e. I can't eat grass-fed unicorn liver, so I'll just eat frosted flakes with yoohoo.)

Organ meat is one of the rich sources of every nutrient. Rich in minerals, Rich in vitamins, essential amino acids and healthy fats. One of the important points is that organ meat even from grass-fed animals can be very cheap as compared to muscle meat. Organ meats from grass-fed animals are even higher in nutrients than organs from grain-fed animals.

I like living on a low budget, and it's all optional. I don't turn my pc on that much anymore (a source of distractions,) I don't take buses to go to Uni even if I'm late (I have to program myself and my sleep schedule,) and all the money I save goes to food and clothes.

Personally, I don't miss going to fancy restos and I'd rather cook and eat my paleo food at home. I think you learn so much more on a tight budget because you almost always have/opt to take the hard way. Finding cheap clothing somewhefe in Rio is my next step.

So at the end of the day can I eat organ meats from conventional meat or should I just avoid it. Im somewhat on a budget. the 2 things that cost me the most is exercise/coachs etc and food, I had to sacrifice buying cool cloths etc and eating super nice restaurants. but If I can save money by buying conventional organ meats that is cool but if it is really bad for me than I would avoid it.

One thing I know is people say that conventional muscle meat is fine as long as I eat lean.

Not really a significant difference between the two. Don't sweat it.

so organ meat is only superior when it comes to grass-fed meat right? and in the case of conventional meat organ meats is inferior to muscle. In a way the cheaper the meat is for conventional stuff, the worst it is. but for grass-fed everything is good

I think from reading your question you pretty much already know the answer but just looking for someone to confirm your thoughts. If you are on a budget... .eat what you can meat and produce... stay away from the easier to avoid processed junk...
