Organic, Natural or Grass-Fed: what’s the difference?

When it comes to choosing meat for your family, you usually want the best you can get at the price you can afford. But, what do those labels really mean? Let’s explore…

Organic – Organically raised livestock must be in compliance with the National Organic program rules beginning in the last 1/3 of gestation .They must be fed only organic feed and allowed to graze only organically-managed pastures. They are not to be given hormones or any other growth-promoting agents and only allowed to be administered vaccines when they are not sick. Additionally, they must be allowed access to the outdoors. All of these regulations are certified by agencies accredited through the USDA. In order to place the organic sticker on the label of a product, it must be made with 95% or greater organic ingredients. Typically, meat labeled “organic” is much more expensive because its more expensive to produce.

Natural – A lot of people think that natural and organic and natural are the same…they’re not. Natural labeled products must be…a product containing no artificial ingredient or added color and is only minimally processed. Minimal processing means that he product was processed in a manner that does not fundamentally alter the product. The label must include a statement explaining the meaning of the term natural (such as “no artificial ingredients or minimally processed”.)

So, natural is fairly open-ended, usually accompanying a claim like “no antibiotics added or maybe grass-fed.” Keep in mind, if the label doesn’t say “grass fed” or “no antibiotics”, chances are they’re not.

Grass-Fed – Most cattle producers feed their cattle grain for the last 3-4 months of their life. This is an efficient way to fatten the cattle to the point where consumers like to eat beef. Grass-fed beef is usually leaner and with a stronger flavor than grain-fed beef. Grass-feeding take longer to get the cattle large enough to slaughter, producing not as much meat, resulting in higher cost.

Why Are Burgers and Fries Commonly Served Together?th2

I’ve asked myself the same question a while back. There isn’t much literature on the subject (the well documented ones already build on a culture of burgers and fries) but a number of reasons come to mind.

Burgers are finger-food. To serve something with them that requires utensils would be counterproductive to the idea of “on-the-go eating.” So, in the starch group, only fried potatoes remain.

Fries go well with the condiments and sauces used on burgers. Ketchup, mayonnaise, even mustard, are commonly used with fries; in the UK, vinegar based sauces are also in heavy rotation.

Fries are easily made and – like the burger – are low-involvement finishers. That means they can be pre-made to a close proximity of finish and take about as long to be done as a meat patty on the grill.

Burger Restaurants | Value of Fresh Lettuce and Tomatoes | Vicky’s Burger

Fresh Lettuce and Tomatoes

Lettuce and tomatoes both help you reach your weekly veggie intake — 21 cups for men or 17.5 cups for women, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They offer some nutritional differences — for instance, tomatoes contain the cancer-fighting compound lycopene, a nutrient not found in lettuce. However, lettuce and tomatoes also share a few common essential nutrients that help maintain your health.

Fiber

Tomatoes and lettuce both provide you with fiber. Fiber aids in healthy digestion. A cup of chopped tomatoes provides 2.2 grams of fiber toward this goal. Romaine, butter lettuce and iceberg lettuce contain 2, 1.2 or 1.8 grams of fiber, respectively, per two-cup serving.

Vitamin C

Incorporating tomatoes and lettuce into your diet also helps you reach your recommended daily intake of vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid. Tomatoes serve as a rich source of ascorbic acid. A cup of chopped tomatoes contains 25 milligrams of vitamin C — one-third of the 75 milligrams required daily for women and 28 percent of the 90 milligrams needed for men, according to the NYU Langone Medical Center. Lettuce contains smaller amounts of vitamin C, with a 2-cup serving of romaine, butter lettuce or iceberg lettuce each providing approximately 4 milligrams of ascorbic acid. Your body uses this vitamin C to nourish your immune system, aid in wound healing and promote healthy brain function.

Vitamin A

Tomatoes and lettuce — particularly romaine lettuce — boost your intake of vitamin A. Your body uses vitamin A to aid in cell communication and the vitamin A in your system helps to guide cell development. Vitamin A also helps your body for rhodopsin, a chemical important to vision. Men need 3,000 international units of vitamin A daily to maintain good health, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements, while women need 2,333 IU. A two-cup serving of either romaine or butter lettuce provides your entire daily intake of vitamin A, containing 8,188 IU or 3,644 IU of vitamin A, respectively. Tomatoes contain 1,499 IU of vitamin A per cup, and a two-cup serving of iceberg lettuce provides 722 IU of vitamin A.

Vickys-fresh-ingredients-burgers-inland-empire-restaurantFreshness First – The Importance of Using Fresh Ingredients in Cooking

Every time you cook, you automatically reach for that can of veggies, fruits or preserved meat for your dish. Whether it is for yourself and your family, or your guests, your cooking almost always includes processed ingredients straight from the freezer or sealed packet. The fault of using processed or frozen ingredients lies not in the cooking style, but in the lifestyle. We simply do not have the time to search for and buy fresh ingredients every day.

In that process, we are jeopardizing our health and wealth. If you are a fan of canned food or eating out of the box, here are a few reasons that will make you choose fresh ingredients over processed ones.

Freshness for health

Fresh ingredients are always better for preparing healthy food, when compared to processed ingredients. Fresh ingredients are basically those that haven’t been exposed to chemicals or processed in any way to increase their shelf life. They have to be consumed on the same day or within a day or two. Fresh ingredients, including fresh vegetables, meat, spices like basil, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic also retain their nutritious value when you cook them right. Unlike processed foods, they are pure and not adulterated in any way, by exposure to preservatives and other such chemicals.

Food cooked with fresh ingredients is healthier than food cooked with processed ingredients or those stored using preservatives.

Fresh ingredients for better tasting food

When it comes to taste, nothing can beat fresh ingredients. The flavor in the food you cook is best when you use fresh ingredients – whether it is succulent meat, fresh produce, basil that is freshly grown in your own yard, ripe tomatoes from the plant you grew in your window – all of them taste a lot better fresh than preserved. At Vicky’s Restaurants we use fresh ingredients, come try us out and you will agree that food tastes better with fresh ingredients.
