Correction: I was just informed Harvestland is not organic. From my experience with other brands, my family have found harvestland to have a better taste and texture.
The other day I was watching the Doctors, they gave me a lot of helpful information that will help me in my journey to be a skinnier me. I found out what pink slime is, and I have to say we will rarely eat red meat again, we have also cut out most of the pork from our diet. On this episode it was showing how they not only prepare ground beef, but also chicken. Organic
I discovered they use chlorine to clean the chicken, then inject the chicken with a salt bath so cover up the chlorine taste/smell. I decided to look into going organic, and I was amazed with the prices. I would have thought organic chicken would have been insanely expensive.
I do most my shopping at Walmart, they have three different brands for chicken breasts. Chefs Choice, Harvestland, and Tyson, out of these three brands chefs choice is the cheaper one, then harvestland, and tyson to follow. Harvestland is the organic chicken, yet it’s about 20 cents cheaper per pound than the tysons. Chefs choice is the cheaper chicken, however, it has all sorts of additives.
Take a look…
Look at the difference! In the chefs choice you can see all the additives that is put into this chicken, sure it is 1.97 a pound, but look at the ingredients. I would much rather pay the $4.98 a pound and know I am getting nothing but chicken. The tyson brand doesn’t have as many additives, however it still has those added ingredients.
I have learned a lot from this, I will be checking those labels now.
How many of you have bought the cheaper meat?
I am guilty of that, from looking at the labels above, the cheaper meat, is not really cheaper, you are buying more additives then actual meat product. That is something to keep in mind the next time you go shopping. Organic also has a better flavor.
