For today's show I was joined by the fabulous Liam Pelot, CFO of Dick's Kitchen and Dick's Primal Burger. Liam is a wealth of knowledge and demonstrated how seriously Dick's Kitchen takes the health and sourcing of their ingredients. In this episode you'll learn about:
- The long list of local meat and produce farmer sources that supply Dick's Kitchen.
- Why rice bran oil is the best compromise for frying oil between nutrition and what customers will order.
- When push comes to shove, choosing local over organic can provide the same health benefits for a lower cost, and support farmers transitioning to organic.
What does Liam think is the ONE thing you can do to improve your eating or food purchasing habits to benefit their health, the environment, and our community? Switch your red meat purchasing to local, grass fed beef. Your health will be improved by adding healthy fats, proteins, and other nutrients, and you'll support your local economy.
