When it comes to the chicken you buy, it is always a good idea to purchase free range or organic if you can. Free range and organic chicken are more expensive than conventional but a good thing to support. Free range is the method of farming where the chickens for at least part of the day, can roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined in an enclosure for the entire day. On many farms, the outdoors area where the chickens range is fenced, which technically makes it an enclosure, but the free range systems usually offer the opportunity for the birds to get plenty of locomotion and sunlight that would otherwise be prevented by indoor housing systems. Free range may apply to meat, eggs or dairy farming. The United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) requires that any chickens that are raised for their meat have access to the outdoors to receive the certification of free-range. There is no requirement for what sort of access to pasture the chickens have, and it might just be access to only dirt or gravel. You can feel good about eating free range chickens knowing that they had access to fresh air and sunshine.
The addition of diced avocado in simple and easy salads is the perfect compliment to a variety of recipe ideas. Avocados are a fruit that has plenty of avocado nutrients and healthy fats that are good for you. When it comes to purchasing avocados you want to get them when they are perfectly ripe if you want to use them the same day. Otherwise, avocados that are too hard will need to be further ripened which can be done on a countertop, and for avocados that are already ripe and ready to eat, you can also place avocados in the fridge until you are ready to use. Avocado nutrients you will find include vitamin K, B vitamins, and dietary fiber, with amounts of vitamin E and vitamin C, and lesser amounts of iron and calcium. About three-quarters of and avocados energy comes from monosaturated fat as oleic acid.
