- Shop directly from a rancher or farmer. Many resources can be found on Revero resources.
- There are several apps or even websites depending on your location which will help you navigate sales.
- Shop ethnic stores.
- Ask for fat trimmings directly from the butcher. Sometimes they will just give this to you or sell it at a low rate.

- If purchasing processed animal foods, be sure to read the labels.
- Let someone else do the shopping if they can also be supportive and not return with garbage food.
