Prepping for the holidays can be super hectic and unhealthy. Thankfully, there are some natural, nutritious and tasty options that can make you feel better about feasting over Thanksgiving. Check out some of our favorites and check us out on Daybreak this Thursday to hear us talk about them!
Red Bird Farms
Red Bird Farms has been providing fresh and natural chicken to the people of Colorado since the 1940s. Since it’s inception, Red Bird Farms has grown to a regional brand with plants in both Phoenix and Denver. As they have grown, Red Bird Farms has maintained its commitment to quality and integrity and has forged a commitment to raising chickens without the use of antibiotics or animal byproducts. For the holiday season, look for Red Bird Turkeys that are free of added hormones or steroids. www.redbirdchicken.com
Frontier and Simply Organic
Spice up your holidays with organic, high-quality herbs and seasoning from Frontier and Simply Organic. Good spices can make a dish or a dessert, or even a entire meal, really pop. This time of year people who go “all in” and start using different spices to make a special meal. Frontier and Simply Organic are different because spices are not irradiated like all the other brands. In fact, spices are steam sterilized, which involves sterilizing them in a vacuum chamber which allows sterilization to happen at lower temperatures. In turn, this process ensures quality, preserves natural flavor and provides maximum effect on your meal. www.frontiercoop.com
