    Try not to eat ground meat. It's way bad for you. Prime cuts of meat are better all the way around.

    Cumin is a spice, it will give you a Taco/chili type taste to your wholesome and healthy ground beef! My advice would be to look for it in like the ethnic section of the grocery store though because it is usually a lot cheaper when you buy a bag of it in the ethnic isle compared to buying a little shaker of it from McCormick....

    Too long. LOL.

    I started and followed pretty closely when I logged shred matrix. Since then I've been low carbing, but refeeds are loosely followed. I would be having much better results if I actually tried

    I'm also moving towards a bulk. This week I started 2800 calories up from 2200 and I'll keep going up until I hit about 3600 and then I'll adjust.

    Sautee some Garlic, Onions, and then some crushed chilies if you like spice. Also add some cumin, coriander and oregano.

    Here are my suggestions. mix and match with these:
    - Lots of cumin.
    - Chipotle flavored Tabasco hot sauce (awesome with or without the cumin)
    - a little bit of onion powder
    - Worcestershire sauce
    - black pepper
    - salt (mixed into the meat before cooking)

    Taco/burrito seasoning mix, mexican style tomato puree and low fat sour cream. Thats my combo.
    You could just use the seasoning if you dont want the few carbs from the puree and sour cream, or eat it raw.

    Maybe you've never been to a slaughterhouse or worked in a meat processing plant, perhaps you have'nt heard of "Mad Cow Disease" then again maybe you are raising your own cattle, hogs and chicken and have absolutely no concern about what they are fed and how they are treated.
    Yes the government did make public the fact that SOME infected cattle from canada and mexico entered our commercial food supply, but that there werent enough INFECTED head to "really be concerned about"! Hey, somebody give that guy a cheeseburger!

    Mix italian sausage taken out of the case and mixed with hamburger, one or two egg, some ketchup, worstischshire sauce, pepper, minnced garlic, minnced bell pepper, minced raw bacon, some blended whole wheat bread, garlic salt mix and shape as meatloaf. Put some ketchup rubb it over the loaf layer bacon and then bake. Go for a good consistency not two watery. You could also subtract the bread maybe with a little cheese.

    I have been thinking about a recipe for some kind of curry meatloaf.

    Mixing italian sausage in to hamburger adds a different flavor even with just straight burgers.

    I like to eat steak and eggs sometimes I eat a burger, two fried eggs, a bit of mayo and a bit of a1 steak sauce. Poor mans steak and eggs.

    Off subject but I like hot dogs with a slit down the middle, stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon then baked. Its like low carb junk food.

    okay, first off mad cow disease is not an issue in the states....even the english havent had probs in years. and for another thing, if a cow was infected the meat would be tainted whether it was ground or in a "prime cut". and on top of that, i dont know how it is where u live but heres a suprise.....99.5% of the people on earth have never worked in a slaughterhouse.

    and i prefer garlic powder, pepper and tony cacheres cajun seasoning for my beef.

    the more you chew it the harder it is to digest. ground is easier to get down, better digestion, and more nutrients due to increased surface area. its hard enough eating all the time let alone chewing everything extra just to get it broken up good.

    there is such a thing as lean ground beef and my favorite is having the butcher grind up my lean cuts and whole broils even. this all is dependant on price of course since i only by cheap marked down meat!

    The only seasoning I ever use with my ground beef is curry. Most people I know don't like it, but it's the way to go.

    Mrs. Dash is always nice to have, especially if your sodium intake is high, which mine tends to be on CKD.

    I was looking over my spice rack and I noticed that Chile Powder doesn't have any cals, carbs or anything. Also, only 10mg of sodium per tsp. I might try this myself later.

    I love wors sauce. I hardly ever eat roast beef without it, I use some on my steaks too if I accidentally cook them too long.

    So the wors will help the steaks be less dry if you over cook them...

    Same. But I'm getting in about 2 gallons of water a day, so I honestly disregard it. Especially since ketones have a dieuretic effect, the extra salt isn't such a bad thing
