As we move deeper into the heart of summer, many of us are spending as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying the simple pleasures of the season. What could be simpler than a summer picnic? Pack up some fresh food, grab your loved ones, and find a tranquil corner of the world where you can roll out that iconic checkered blanket. Simple Truth® is now offering a variety of pre-sliced deli meats and cheeses to make your picnic menu quick to prepare and naturally delicious. Carnivores can choose from oven-roasted turkey and chicken, smoked turkey and ham, and top round roast beef. As always, no of antibiotics or added nitrates/nitrites! Cheese lovers will be delighted by sliced Muenster, provolone, and Gouda. The possibilities are endless, but we’ve outlined a few ideas to get your picnic started!
Let us do the work for you! Now available are not only Simple Truth dry red and white quinoas, but four varieties of pre-cooked frozen quinoa in your favorite brand with the little green circle. Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wa”, has gained momentum in the last couple years as one of our new favorite foods. Quinoa is an ancient “pseudo-cereal”, originating from South America (one of the areas we also source our quinoa) a few thousand years ago. Believe it or not, quinoa is a closer relative to vegetables and herbs than grains, making its way to our plates from a plant in the “goosefoot” family. “Simple Truth Organic White Quinoa & Barley” is a tasty, convenient (read: only your microwave is needed if serving warm!), and more adaptable quinoa, worth talking about.
Beyond its well-known designation as “the other white meat,” pork offers an affordable and versatile option for your summer grill-outs. Packed with protein and B vitamins, lean cuts of pork, such as chops and loins, provide top-notch options for health-conscious meat lovers. Though most of us are familiar with sizzling, pan-fried bacon or slow-roasted pork shoulder, firing up the grill to cook pork is a lesser-known method of preparation that can impart incredible flavor and contribute to that “summertime vibe.” Simple Truth® is your best source for fresh, natural pork that is free of antibiotics and added hormones. Grab a package of natural pork chops, country ribs, or pork tenderloin and remember these three tips for grilling succulent, juicy pork delights.
Do you spoil your pet? Most of us do. Often our pets become like a member of the family. They have a name, special place to sleep, routine, show us affection and like to eat certain items. My dog is now 14 years old and still greets me with bright eyes and a wagging tail in anticipation of treats. Our pets show us unconditional love and protection. They lift our spirits and always listen to stories of our day. Shouldn’t we treat them to some homemade, organic treats?
