I just wanted to counter that by saying that with a little bit of planning and preparation you can eat grass fed beef and organic produce, even on a tight budget. No, you won’t be grilling grass fed New York Strip Steaks, but with inexpensive cuts like our meaty grass fed beef Soup Bones, you can easily delight the whole family and feel good about the health benefits you’re providing.
Last week I made a pot of soup from one of our Shank Soup Bones, and one pound of our Ground Chuck (which isn’t necessary because our Soup Bones are so meaty, but we already had the Ground Chuck thawed), along with all organic; onions, garlic, celery, carrots, mushrooms (expensive shitake mushrooms - you can use the less expensive white button variety), kale, broccoli, and frozen peas. I of course also added some sea salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and celery seed. (Normally I would have added a little red wine but we didn’t have any on hand that day). And of course I used a few tablespoons of extra virgin, organic olive oil in which to sauté the vegetables.
I totaled up the cost of all the ingredients, including the retail price of our Soup Bones and Ground Chuck, and figured that the entire pot cost about $25.00 to make, and it yielded a full 15 man-sized servings. (We’re talking big man). That comes to $1.67 per serving for a filling, fulfilling, and delicious meal that provides all the nutrients you need for an active and busy lifestyle.
If you haven’t already you can access our recipe for healthy grass fed beef stock. And of course, if you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know all about the innumerable health benefits of bone broth.
Even though winter is technically over in the Northern Hemisphere, it is currently snowing here as I write this so we are leaving our Winter Soup Bone Special in place for a few more weeks until it officially looks like Spring.
