Hey there! Happy December people! I hope everyone’s holiday season has been a great one so far. I can’t believe the 2015 year is coming to an end. Too fast, always.
With the holidays here, I always seem to over indulge just a tad during Christmas parties and family get togethers. This means it’s even more important for me to really be eating clean during the week at least about 80% of the time.
Andy and I recently switched up where we are purchasing our meat. For the past two years we have spent about $150-$200 a week on food shopping at Whole Foods. We try to get grass fed, organic, and/or local meat whenever we can. At Whole Foods this costs a pretty penny for sure.
Last month I came across a post on CTBites about Stuart Family Farm here in Connecticut. The farm, located in Bridgewater, Connecticut, raises 100% grass-fed Red Angus cattle on 600 acres of land. They also have pastured pork and poultry. The farm is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays so Andy and I decided to take the hour long scenic drive north a few weekends ago. We met the wonderful staff and also the little piggies. It was a really cool experience to actually see where your food is coming from.
