That's funny, I think I've heard Michelle Obama say pretty much that.

Mark Zuckerberg Says He’s Only Eating Meat He Kills
By NICK FOX

Mark Zuckerberg has certainly been called cutthroat before, but nobody meant it literally. Yet Mr. Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has told Fortune that he is only eating meat he kills himself. This news apparently came to light when he told his Facebook friends on May 4, “I just killed a pig and a goat.”

“He cut the throat of the goat with a knife, which is the most kind way to do it,” said the Silicon Valley chef Jesse Cool, who’s been working with Mr. Zuckerberg on his new endeavor.

“I’m eating a lot healthier foods,” Mr. Zuckerberg told Fortune. “And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals,” he says. “It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”

I don't know that slitting a throat is the most kind.

We were offered the chance to help kill sheep in Mongolia. They put a small slit in the chest/throat area and then reach in and pinch the aorta until the sheep passes out (seconds), then they sever the aorta. Very humane.

I admire people who can do that. If you are going to eat meat, you should know everything involved in it.
A client who is an avid hunter only eats meat from animals he kills and butchers himself (unless he is traveling or a guest--obs). It's quite impressive. He has at least 3 chest freezers at home, and you don't get to leave his house w/o taking some frozen meat of some type. (I have deer bacon and sausages, an elk roast and a bull roast in my freezer right now from him.)

we've been contemplating buying a "share" of a cow on a farm out in Virginia, which seems quite healthy and human (and not cheap).

but then, we eat so little beef that it probably isn't worth it. i wish the same thing existed for fish and chicken.

Wonder if Zuckerberg has hired help dressing and putting up the meat. I've seen a family go through the complete process with a freshly slaughtered pig before; it's an incredible amount of work.

I drink whole milk in the corner of my basement in a fetal position, fearing that the food police are hanging by my windows, waiting for me to make a mistake.

Illinois is up to its neck in debt (unlike Indiana I might add). If their government has bureaucrats with time enough on their hands to worry about the dangers of whole milk on school kiddies might this Hoosier suggest they look no further for areas to cut their budget.

What's that? Government union workers can't be fired solely for incompetence. Escape the madness Illini and head East to a state with common sense.

AND WE LOVE WHOLE MILK !!

You lied then, and you're confused now.

That forum post is over 5 years old and wrong.

Seriously? What is wrong with you two?

Wow, the lady in the hair net at my cafeteria hardly knew how to make a decent turkey and dressing let alone how to roll sushi.

Ridiculous.

Corndogs and nuggets shouldn't even be considered real food, but there's a lot of room between that and sushi.

I am not sure what the nutritional value of a California roll really is. A bunch of white rice...then again it's at least not deep fried.

It probably could be argued that ketchup is healthier than soy sauce, but fried stuff should not be everyday food for kids.

It's pretty low fat, low calorie...but nutrition facts aside, I'm not sure I would be in a hurry to try LA Unified SD sushi
