|Ground raw food, IMO, is better than commercial processed formulas (kibble or wet food), but it is still processed to the extent it is, and though a better conference of nutrients on the whole, not an equal to a diet of whole chunks and parts. I really believe the loss of nutrient synergy will impact health over time (i.e. mineral binding of vitamins), and if a ground homogenized diet is fed without RMBs at least a couple times a week, the spirit and practice of a raw diet is pretty much lost and you really need to start considering all the factors inherent in feeding a processed food diet.
So, in other words, ground raw is OK, but parts is better. I think a lot of the fear or idea of convenience is merely a learning curve. Remember the mantra balance over time. Even when feeding bigger parts and pieces, a meal plan is actually really easy when you're not obsessing over minute details that in the end don't really factor in when you're feeding with the "prey model" in mind.
