Why It's Worth It:
Choosing organic meat, fish and poultry products helps to minimize your family's exposure to synthetic growth hormones, genetic engineering, and artificial preservatives, among other things. Plus, it ensures that the animals from which these products are made were raised in a sustainable fashion that establishes their health and welfare as top priorities.
What to look for:
- Look for the USDA seal. This indicates that the product is made of at least 95% organic ingredients.
- Look for information on the certifier (i.e.: the certifier's name or logo).
Beef It Up:
Whether you're packing your kids' lunches, putting on a pot luck for friends, or hosting a tailgate party in your backyard, be sure to add organic meat, poultry or seafood to the menu. With everything from buffalo wings to braised beef to choose from, organic is sure to score you, your family, and your guests a home run.
