Naturally raised meat...what's all the hype?
It's about our health people! Whether gluten free or not, the quality of the food we eat is über important!
So, here's a great article from our friends at Kettle Cuisine, that explains more about quality meat. Also, not to be biased or anything, but Crosby and I think the "good" stuff tastes better too!! ;-)
The Importance of Selecting Naturally Raised Proteins
If you walk into any Chipotle Mexican Grill (Have you seen their new commercial?) and check out their ingredient messaging, their commitment to naturally raised pork, beef and chicken is abundantly clear. If you walk into any Panera Bread and check out their salad offerings, you will see that all of the chicken used in their salads is all natural and antibiotic free. And when you purchase any (non-vegetarian) Kettle Cuisine soup, you can always expect naturally raised chicken or beef. So….why are all three of our companies committing to pay more (sometimes significantly more) for naturally raised proteins? I can assure you that it’s not just for added marketing hype.
There are many benefits associated with cooking with and eating naturally raised proteins. They taste better and more importantly they taste like they should. They are free of antibiotics that pose long term biological and environmental threats. They are free of growth hormones that pose questionable health risks. And, the animals are raised by humane standards and in a way that is truly sustainable.
