OK, I tried...Paleo is not for me. Parts of it I am adapting into my diet but I am still having a problem with the meat. I am just not a meat eater, never have been, quite frankly I am an animal lover. I still buy meat on occasion but I only will buy meat from farmers who farm organic.
Organic meat is free of antibiotics and added hormones. These animals are raised more ethically and humanely, meaning they are allowed to range freely and not confined to pens. In addition, the land that they eat from and live on uses no or less chemicals as well. I have found a source for organic meat from a local farmer and I suggest you do the same. Go to your local food co-op or health food store and they can help you make the safest decisions when it comes to your food choices.
I love these! So many morning we are running late for school and I quick throw in the instant oatmeal into the microwave...no more! My kids LOVE these and they can choose whatever toppings/flavors they want. You can store in the freezer, take one out the night before to thaw in the fridge, microwave for about a minute in the morning and stir in a little milk.
