SISSFiT Pick of the Week: Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey!

We often stuggle to find healthy, lean animal protein which is why we were so excited when we discovered Foster Farms Organic Free Range Ground Turkey!!  Not only is this one of the most versatile proteins we have found (burgers, pasta sauces, meatloaf, meatballs, stir frys, lettuce wraps, casseroles, etc.), but it’s also one of the healthiest.  Locally grown in California, certified organic and raised free-range with no antibiotics ever, while being fed a vegetarian diet…we’re sold!  And, it’s affordable!  We have already come up with so many fun and creative ways to incorporate this lean protein into our diets (see some of our old Instagram posts) and will definitely be continuing.  Check it out, let us know what you think, and be sure to share your recipes with us on Instagram!
