How to make your Stew thicker……………

Cornstarch, potato starch, and chickpea flour are a couple of pantry-friendly ways to thicken soups, stews, and sauces in the slow cooker. Just a tablespoon or two of any, added towards the end of cooking will thicken sauces especially well.

Preheat that Cast Iron Skillet…….

Preheat your cast iron skillet for the best cooking results. To ensure the quality of cooking and durability of the pan, always preheat. Despite its many benefits, these skillets heat slow. However, once it starts heating, it keeps heating. Heat it slowly, going from low to medium levels, letting the cast iron do its thing. And since the pan is excellent at emitting heat, you can cook the food over low-medium heat.

Dry Cast Iron Skillets on the stovetop………..

Don’t worry about drying a wet skillet with a towel, just place the skillet back on a burner on low heat. Allow it to sit until all moisture evaporates from the inside, the outside, and even on handles. Allow the skillet to cool before handling again.

No Shop Monday……………..

Never buy meat from the supermarket on Monday Morning. It’s likely that those packages for sale were not sold over the weekend, and most shipments of fresh meat arrive on Monday afternoon or on Tuesday.

Yum, leftover Chicken…………

Cold chicken is safe to eat, if it’s been kept cold. If your chicken is cooked place it into the refrigerator in a closed container, or remove the cooked meat from the bones and then refrigerate it of course it will be safe to eat. But you should eat the leftovers within 2–4 days. It should be safe.

Choosing the best Broccoli………….

 

Choose broccoli heads with tight, green florets and firm stalks. The broccoli should feel heavy for its size. The cut ends of the stalks should be fresh and moist looking. Avoid broccoli with dried out or browning stem ends or yellowing florets.

 

Then to store that great looking Broccoli forgo the plastic bag and loosely wrap your broccoli in a damp paper towel before storing it in the refrigerator. This provides a healthy and moist (but breathable) environment for your broccoli. Make sure not to wash the broccoli beforehand, as too much moisture might encourage mold growth.

Storing Carrots………………

Carrots do not need to be kept in the fridge, but this is certainly the best place for them. Storing carrots that are fresh here will make them last for 3-4 weeks. If you have leftover cooked carrots, they can be stored in here, too. Put them inside an airtight container, and make sure they’re used within 3-5 days.

Keep a lid on this one……….

No Peeking. Resist the urge to remove the lid and peek at your meal. Opening the slow cooker lets heat and moisture escape, and it slows the cooking process. Once you put the lid on, leave it there until your dish reaches the low end of the recipe’s cooking range.

HEART HEALTH

HEART HEALTH
It’s true – you are what you eat, and you are what you eat, eats too. With this in mind and in celebration of February’s American Heart Month, we’d like to share some important heart-health facts on grass-fed meat.

Grass-fed meat has:

Lower total fat content & health-promoting fats such as;
Omega-3 fatty acids – key component to heart health
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) – a fat that has been shown to reduce heart disease and cancer risks
More antioxidant vitamins (health boosters) such as; Vitamin E
Beta-carotene and; Vitamin C

“Specifically, bison contains an increased ratio of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) to saturated fatty acids (SFA), 3–4 times more anti-inflammatory omega-3 PUFA and is particularly high in alpha linolenic acid. In addition, ruminants such as bison are a major contributor of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to the human diet, providing significantly more CLA than other non-ruminant meat sources such as pork, fish, chicken, and turkey. The dietary inclusion of a specifically rich source of CLA may be advantageous as CLA is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, and may have an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.”

When it comes to omega-3 fatty acids (which our body does not make on its own) – it’s important that we turn to foods that include this essential fat, which has been shown to prevent heart disease. Consuming our native, grass-fed buffalo meat that delivers 3.5x more omega-3s – is a not only a good choice but a go-to choice for a healthy heart.

“Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to significantly reduce the risk for sudden death caused by cardiac arrhythmias and all-cause mortality in patients with known coronary heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are also used to treat hyperlipidemia and hypertension.”

Evidence has also shown that “some antioxidant vitamins appear to be important in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD).” With the power-packed antioxidant vitamins found in grass-fed meat, these healthy, can-do substances protect a person’s cells, keeping us free from “oxidative stress” and boosting overall health.

Besides the known health benefits of grass-fed meat, it’s also important to consider its role in weight health, which directly correlates to heart health. Being overweight leads to many conditions such as, high blood pressure or diabetes that lead to heart disease. Consuming a healthy, balanced diet of 100% grass-fed/finished bison with other whole plant-based foods, play a critical role in maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Our nutrient dense, lower calorie and higher protein grass-fed buffalo meat is not just beneficial for your heart health, but for the heart of our planet. New studies show that one in five global deaths are caused by pollution, and our food supply can either be a part of that pollution or a part of the solution.

As always, we believe, that eating less meat, but of a higher more nutrient rich and sustainable quality is not just in the best interest of our health, but of our planet’s health too.
