Do you know what is in the meat you buy and serve your family? The labels might say all the right things, but is the label accurate? Last summer, news broke that smuggled frozen meat had been seized in China, and some of it dated back to the 1970s! It is shocking in our modern world that this could happen, and it is a reminder that we need to be conscious of what we buy to feed our families. You never really know what is lurking right in your own grocery store.

When it comes to the meat you buy, what do you look for? Do you prefer grass fed beef? Compared to grain-fed, cattle that is only grass-fed has healthier overall meat which is higher in antioxidants, certain vitamins and even omega-3 levels. It also has less fat and a cleaner, more natural taste. This healthy option is what encouraged Mike Salguero to create ButcherBox. After being introduced to grass-fed cattle from a local farmer, Mike preferred the more natural taste and discovered the many health benefits it offered. Yet, he was surprised to find that not everyone has access to it, and those that do, don’t have a wide variety to choose from. This is why only 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States is 100% grass-fed. He decided to make grass-fed beef more accessible with the idea of ButcherBox

Working with small farms, ButcherBox can purchase large quantities of meat and offer them to their customers at an affordable price. The beef is 100% grass fed with no hormones or antibiotics, and their chicken is all free range and organic. They also offer pork that is heritage breed and without hormones or antibiotics. When you join, you get 8 to 11 pounds of meat each month that arrive in eco-friendly packaging and offer healthy, unique cuts of meat. It breaks down to about $6.00 per meal! ButcherBox is making it affordable and easier to get healthier cuts of meat to serve your family.

Savory Bacon and Spinach Danish Recipe

Make this delicious savory Bacon and Spinach Danish Recipe in just 20 minutes. Perfect for lunch, snacking, parties or even a light dinner.

Ingredients

a few pieces of crispy bacon crumbled
1 pre made puff pastry sheet (typically in the freezer section)
½ cup fresh spinach, we had more for salads with the pastries
¼ cup shredded cheese
dash of Himalayan salt
fresh thyme
optional: a few drops per pastry of pure maple syrup

Directions

Cut the (thawed) pastry sheet into six pieces. Then use the tip of the knife to cut a smaller rectangle about ½ an inch in from the edges. Try not to cut all the way through and instead just the top layers. This will allow the edges to puff around the filling and not create a dome.

Place clean, dry spinach in the center of this inner rectangle, then add in the crumbled crispy bacon and sprinkle with the shredded cheese, thyme and salt (along with the optional maple syrup).

Also optional, spread a little of the left over bacon fat on the outer pastry not covered with filling, this will add more flavor and help the edges turn golden brown.
