I Love Meat!! An Applegate Review and Giveaway!!
Today instead of talking about what I did to the outside of the sandwich and the "cute" factor, I am going to discuss what I put inside my sandwiches. For the past year I have posted about ideas, lunchboxes, picks,etc.. But I rarely discuss what I actually made the sandwich or wrap with. Mostly this is because you come to my blog for ideas on cute lunches and not on how to make a sandwich,lol. I figure you probably already know that ;)
I do love meat ( sorry my veggie friends) but I do not eat it daily and I am very conscious of where it came from. For my regular dinner type stuff like chicken or beef I use a local farmer who offers all natural hormone free meats and his animals are humanely treated. These things are important to me. But when it came to lunch meat it got trickier. I started looking around for something organic or all natural. I needed it to be free of nitrates,antibiotics and other artificial and unhealthy ingredients. And I wanted a company that believed in making sure that in the process the animals were being humanely raised. I found all of this in Applegate Organic and Natural meats.
Recently Moms Meet asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing Applegate products and of course I said YES!! While I was already using some of their products this gave me a great opportunity try more of them and learn more about the company. And I am so glad they allowed me to do it!
If you are worried about taste you shouldn't be!! In fact I found Applegate products to be tastier than their less than natural competitors and my daughter even notices when I use a different brand and she's never very happy about it,lol! I was also concerned that the selection wouldn't be great, but they offer many many choices, of meats, cheeses, hot dogs and more!! And I am finding many of my local stores are now carrying a wider variety of their products.
So next time you look at one of my lunches you will know that there is some tasty Applegate meat and cheese tucked inside :) Like in yesterday's Detroit Tigers lunch or the Frog from last week, we use Applegate often and you should try them too!
Would you like to try them for FREE??? Of course you would!! Thanks to Applegate and Moms Meet, 2 lucky winners will get to do just that! Contest is open to US residents only and ends October 23rd.
