I love meat. (Take that as you will.)
No, I am not one of those people who is going to eat a steak in front of a vegetarian and laugh. I don’t care what you choose to eat and that is just stupid. Simply, I really enjoy eating meat. That said, I really enjoy quality meat and this past week I made two ridiculously awesome food purchases. Time to share:
It includes some really tasty snacks I’ve been nomming on since I got mine in the mail. I haven’t tried anything that I have disliked so far (okay I have really liked it all!) and I think the “Krunch” (in the tub) might be my favorite.
One of the best things about these snacks (aside from ease), is that 15% of the proceeds go towards “Steve’s National Program“. A program designed to educate at-risk youth in healthful eating and getting them moving. How friggin’ cool is that? I have seen all kinds of pre-made, paleo snack thingers on the interwebs, but Steve’s Original caught my eye from a blog post of Neghar Fonooni’s.
If I am going to purchase a pre-packaged food, of any variety, at least a portion of my money is going towards something great.
Purchase #2: 20 lbs of local, grassfed beef
I ordered this online and picked it up after work today. It seriously took me all of an extra ~10 min to pick it up and get home? The box included eye of round roast, skirt steak, ribeye steak, london broil, 2 NY strip steaks, brisket, and 10 one-pound packages of ground beef.
With tax, it ran me about $170… which is a bit expensive at one blow but that will last me a good while and is worth it. (I actually don’t think it’s that bad considering what I got, either.)
BONUS: Christina’s Macaroons (originally Carla’s?)
I…need some practice with these…
The taste is AMAZING. Seriously, guys, crack. BUT! They’re still goopey and they’ve been dehydrating for a while. I’m going to just leave them in there indefinitely and hope they cookie-ize.
If not, I’ll just eat them goopey because they’re damn delicious (did I mention that yet?). I know they’re good because I taste-tested a few as a quality control check. See the missing spots in my dehydrator?
