A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh cuts of beef, pork, and lamb at Mizzou Meat Market, located on the University of Missouri campus.
Students in the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources open the Mizzou Meat Market's doors each Wednesday and Friday to serve up USDA-approved meats from university-raised livestock. A large selection of fresh meats includes beef, pork, lamb, and other prepared items. Aristocratic alphabet enthusiasts can cast off stores of proletarian SpaghettiOs for a T-bone steak upgrade ($6.99 per pound). A pound of bacon ($2.89 per pound) wakes weekend tailgaters with a satisfying sizzle, prepping palates for an afternoon of applying grill stripes to newly ground cheeseburger patties ($2.49). Carnivorous spuds munch on flaky fish to offer pescetarians a potato-crusted-cod option ($7.99 per pound). The market is open Wednesday and Friday from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., though customers can order by phone or appointment throughout the week.
The Mizzou Meat Market assures skeptics that care for all livestock exceeds that of most other meat sources and meets all USDA requirements. Starving scholars can pay with student charge for any amount they spend over the value of this Groupon by making special-order arrangements in advance.
