A few weeks ago I came home and Kyle was watching Food Inc. It’s a documentary that shows where our meat comes from and how it makes it to our grocery stores and restaurants. I saw maybe two minutes of it before I left the room and decided that I could never buy mass produced chicken again. The Revolution began, Viva la free range chicken!!!
Knowing what we now know, and trying to treat our bodies with more respect, we started the quest of only buying organic, treated well, chicken. The few places that we know of to find this kind of chicken is the farmer’s market, Whole Foods, or Trader Joes. We picked Trader Joes because the farmer’s market wasn’t open last night and it was close to Kyle’s office. Fifteen dollars and eighty eight cents later we had five small, clean chicken breasts. With taxes it came to over $17. Now we are all for chicken's rights, but almost $20 is a little steep for a few breasts. I was curious as to how our humane food would taste so we fired them up. We both agreed that it was way more flavorful and far from your average chewy bird. However, I think this weekend we will try the farmer’s market for a little price comparison!
Here are some pics of our healthy, expensive, chicken dinner. I chopped the onions, garlic, chicken, and green peppers. Kyle seasoned and sautéed it all to tasty perfection. A side of brown rice (that takes 30 min. to cook) and presto, a healthy dinner! What a team we make!
The tasty after!
