I watched Food Inc. and I was ruined. My heart and my stomach and conscience wouldn't let me consume another bite of meat until I knew that what I was eating was well cared for. I'd drive by chicken trucks and wince at the poor featherless birds. I discovered our local co-op and I was able to return back to my meat eating ways. My co-op offered humanely cared for animal meat. The thing is, my co-op is 45 mins away. Which means I use Harp's to fill in the gaps between my bi-weekly grocery trips. Because we are so picky about the animal products we use (we want them to be organic, all natural, and well cared for) we can't always buy meat at Harp's. Thankfully Harp's started carrying beef from our neighbor who is a natural beef farmer. Harp's has all kinds of organic and natural hidden treasures! One treasure I recently discovered was Smart Chicken®.
I found Smart Chicken® and there was much rejoicing! We have options, people! I decided to partner up with Collective Bias® to try one of the recipes from the Smart Chicken® site. Check out my path to purchase HERE
