I have been trying to fill our house with more natural produce, meats and snacks after hearing all those horror stories of genetically mutated organisms in most of our foods. It freaked me out enough to start incorporating non-hormone, pesticide-free, no additive stuff in our meals and shopping for more organic produce & products. That can definitely add on the monthly expenses but I believe in the end it will be worth every penny!
I was more than happy when approached by the NatureRaised Farms team to review one of their products because it falls right in this category! NatureRaised Farms prides themselves on working with independent family farmers that raise all-natural fresh chickens who enjoy a 100% vegetarian diet. Yup-you read that correctly! The chicken’s raised on these farms are total vegetarians, being fed just veggies, grains, vitamins and minerals. They are all hormone and steroid free! After reading that, it made me happy and I couldn’t wait to try out some of their products.
NatureRaised Farms offers both fresh and frozen chicken products, including boneless chicken breasts, tenders and drumsticks. They even have a frozen, fully cooked line of meats including whole-grain breaded breast nuggets, gluten free grilled strips, gluten free grilled breast fillets and breaded crispy strips. These products are available in grocers probably just around your corner too – like: Publix, Super Target, Walmart, Food City, HEB and Marsh.
one of the many awesome products from NatureRaised Farms
So I hit up Publix the other day in search of some of these NatureRaised Farms products and came across their fully cooked meats. (My store didn’t carry their fresh products, I was bummed but will try again!) I purchased their gluten free grilled breast fillets. I was a little skeptical at first because I never purchased pre-cooked meat products before but with all the care these farmers give the chickens, how bad could it be, right?
the goods! come about 6-7 fillets in a bag
They actually were really tasty! And it made a perfect, quick and nutritious dinner for us in less than 30 minutes. Which, as some of you ladies know, being 9 months pregnant the last thing you want to do is slave over a stove or grill making dinner! I whipped up some Chicken Quesadillas full of fresh veggies and low fat cheese. The chicken was juicy and moist-definitely not dried out what so ever, which I was afraid of!
All you have to do is heat up the chicken in the microwave or oven and you’re ready for dinner, lunch-whatever! It has come in handy for my husband, who works from home and is trying to eat better. He just heats up a chicken breast and throws in it a salad for a great lunch. Love it! NatureRaised Farms doesn’t break the bank either. I paid $7.99 for that bag of chicken-not too shabby! 8 bucks for over 7 great meals for my husband and I!
