    you need to include nutritional info with your recipes, ESPECIALLY sodium content –

    how do i know whether this recipe is or is not “HEALTHY”

    • Anna Soref says:

      I will ask our recipe developer about doing nutrition facts. All of our recipes are healthy or healthier options of indulgences.

    Great recipie, but factory farmed chicken, (along with all meats from these animals, in the grocery stores) are shot up with antibiotics, hormones, and are fed GMO (genetically modified organisms) grain. Everyone needs to either stop eating all meat (and diary), or (better idea) switch to clean meats (grassfed, no shots, no gmo’s). And for diary, please either buy organic almond milk, or go to youtube, and learn how to make you own nut milks, using only organic nuts. Much healthier and tastier! Many stores, have organic dairy products now, along with many other organic products. Your only homework is to study up on organic companies, as some are in bed with the evilest corporation around, Monsanto.

      Thank you for your comment, Joan. We don’t indicate organic as we intend for ALL ingredients to be sourced organic, free-range and local whenever possible!
