Why You Should Eat Rabbit

Why You Should Eat Rabbit

Often overlooked, rabbit is an environmentally-friendly, easy-to-produce, yummy-to-eat local meat. Yet most of us shy away from it.

That’s because it’s not one of the Big Four (beef, chicken, pork, turkey) that we casually find in almost every supermarket. Why isn’t rabbit in your supermarket? Having tasted the succulent meat, it’s not because it doesn’t taste good.

The truth is, it’s not being mass-produced in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), so it’s just not going to find its way into major grocery stores.

But if you’re trying to source your meats from local farmers and ranchers, you’ll want to give rabbit a try.

Tex Mex Layered Salad

Tex Mex Layered Salad

Yes, summer may be winding down and Fall may be in full swing — but there is nothing like a delicious Tex Mex Layered side salad no matter what time of year! I make this bean salad when I am in a pinch and want something that is easy but also nutritious. Serve on a bed of rice or in a tortilla, or just as side dish with any meal.

The will literally come together in 10 minutes and is ready to serve immediately. The flavors are fresh and bright!

Win An Alaskan Adventure For Two With Me (over $4000 value)

Win An Alaskan Adventure

I have always wanted to go to Alaska. When I lived in Oregon, I met a number of Alaskan natives who would say things like “Alaska is Oregon on steroids.”

Considering how gorgeous my part of southern Oregon was, I could only respond with awe. My imagination had a hard time picturing the Alaskan wilderness.

It still does.

Next July, I’ll be going to Alaska. And I’ll be taking one of you lucky readers (and a guest of your choosing) with me.
