Makes sense.

I've started keeping a bag of meal replacement powder, particularly for traveling. It compares poorly to a full English breakfast, but four scoops plus water keeps me filled past lunch, and as long as it isn't consumed too frequently, it's not half bad.
The most frequent meal replacement for me is a bag of peanuts, and once in a while some whole-grain bread too. And when I say whole-grain- it's the real stuff, not some sort of grey-dyed Wonder bread... Whole-grain bread is often pointed out as providing satiety more effectively than white bread.

Back in the last Century, I traveled to computer trade shows in San Francisco*, Las Vegas and New Orleans. I could live for a day (and a half) on a mix of nuts and raisins I could carry in a pocket.

*I tried VR goggles there in the mid-1990s. Definitely not ready for prime time.

I went for a day and a half in Hawaii (Kawaii) on a $2 Costco polish dogs and what I thought at the time were bargain priced beef sticks. Turns out they were beef (hearts). You get hungry enough and you eat it. Hiked 26 miles (water fall detour included) on the kalalau trail in jeans, a tee shirt, a water pump, and beef hearts. Slept in the open which fortunately didn't rain, because I had no shelter or waterproof clothing. Rained the whole hike out though, which was still miserably hot.

With some trail jogging, I made it back in time to pick my friends up from the airport, despite some lowlife siphoning my mostly full fuel tank of most of its fuel.

A few weeks ago, talking with a guy who works at an Uruguayan-style parrilla steakhouse, I mentioned that offal seems to be much more appreciated in former Spanish colonies than in Brazil, even though chicken giblets are quite commonly eaten here. But we'll most likely never know whichever "mistery meat" is found on hamburger patties and other processed meat products.

It's probably cultural preference. I only read that I was eating beef hearts after tasting them and thinking it was awful. If they had tasted fine to me, I'd never had read the package.

I'll eat ground beef all day, every day. I'm mostly ground beef powered. Sometimes I accidentally eat what food eats.

Well we did have a certain scottish chain being sucessfully sued for not being a specified type of bovine make up in their products, along with tallow being used in the fryer. Fries used to taste much better

If you want to want to try a meal kit, look up the menu, order the ingredients from your local grocer,

and have them bring them to your car!

I don't remember having seen any similar situation in my country, yet it had recently been enforced a prohibition on adding offal to minced meat, unless it's intended for "industrial" usage. But it might not being enough to prevent unlabelled offal to make its way into processed meat items such as burgers, meatballs or kibbehs.

AFAIK some followers of certain religions sued McDonald's for advertising the usage of 100% veg oils, while some tallow was still added to enhance flavor.

I have already used tallow for frying, and it does taste great.
