For most of my adult life I did not like chicken. I kept hearing about how healthy it is if you have to eat meat, but it did not taste like the chicken my Mom used to make. And not because I couldn’t cook. . . . I also avoided chicken legs and only ate boneless breast.
A few years ago I found natural, free range chicken with no anti-biotics on sale and tried it. I never looked back. I purchase the same brand all the time. And I even like the boneless thighs. Of course, we do stock up when the price drops.
Did you ever wonder if what you are eating is labelled honestly, and if it is really as healthy as proclaimed on the label? I recently found the Environmental Working Group Website. They now have a rate your plate feature – the good news is my favorite brand of chicken came in at 1.9 on a scale of 1 to 10 where less is more. That is, a rating of 1 is great and a rating of 10 is, lets just be polite and say, not desirable.
