Dee–after I watched Food INC, something connected in my tiny little brain. If Tyson is injecting all their chicken with penicillin, why am I giving it to my daughters that are allergic to penicillin? If they get hives, vomiting, and diarrhea when they take that antibiotic, why aren’t they getting physically sick from eating that chicken? Well, they are-by eating very small doses regularly they don’t immediately have a reaction because they are young and healthy. However, if I keep feeding them that for the next 10 years–they are going to be sick! They will develop diabetes, heart disease, arthritis or even worse, an autoimmune disease. That inflammation created at my dinner table is eventually going to make my babies sick! Ignorance is bliss, until you educate yourself and find out you are poisoning your own kids!
Dee tried organic chicken and lived! Read today’s post—
A few months ago, I was on my way home from work and had to stop for something for dinner. The grocery is not on my direct route home, but a natural food store is so I stopped to find something. I bought a package of organic chicken that looked disgusting. It was vacuum-sealed so the packaging was wrinkled and the chicken itself was darker than what I usually buy, and smaller. When I cut it up, I noticed that the texture was strange, it was much more tender and didn’t need trimming. I decided to put it in a skillet with no oil and just salt and pepper. Even though the chicken breasts were smaller, they didn’t shrivel up like other chicken. I later learned that it’s because most chickens are plumped with water that cooks off when heated. The taste is like nothing you’ve ever tasted, it’s delicious! I have since taken the time to spread the word to people about the difference in the taste of chicken without hormones or antibiotics. One time (sorry in advance for the insensitive remark) someone rolled their eyes and said, “but it’s so expensive” and I replied “so is chemo.”
