Eating Right and Feeling Good in 2020

This post is sponsored by Perdue Farms but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.  Post may contain affiliate links.  

It’s a new year, so it’s time to up your game and make the upcoming year bigger and better than last year in any and all ways possible. One of the main things I’m looking for is more organic food, like organic chicken, and generally more natural food. 2020 is a year to eat right and to feel good in what you are eating. I am a huge fan of food. Food in general and food of all kinds. From chicken parmigiana to burgers to pizza, I’m an any-and-all-of-the-above kind of person. One thing I generally do insist on is that the food is of high quality, preferably coming from a company that I trust and admire. I like knowing where the food is coming from and how good a product it is, but I also like to know that that company making it is also something I know and support. I also love companies that innovate with new and different products and services offered. This is where Perdue Farms comes in.

Perdue Farms Natural Food

Perdue Farms is a brand that I know and trust since I was a kid. This is an amazing family owned-and operated brand with products that my family and I have enjoyed for decades. In fact, for 100 years, the company has worked with small family farmers to raise animals with care. I was lucky enough to meet these farmers and hear how much they loved working with Perdue over the years. It was awesome to see them work and even better knowing how good a company Perdue is. It made me feel great about all those purchases my family has made over all the years. You can really tell Perdue Farms is passionate about farming, land preservation and healthy and nutritious food.

Family Bundles

This is a great bundle for me because I love the pork and I’m a huge fan of Niman Ranch and it’s natural food products. Any time of the day is a good time for pork, and this bundle proves that, baby.

Breakfast starts with Niman Ranch’s all-time favorite: center-cut uncured bacon, which is slow smoked over applewood, and breakfast sausage, which can also be used to flavor savory sauces, soups and stews. The kids go mad for Perdue’s dino nuggets, chicken breast strips and chicken breast tenderloins, which cook up in minutes for all of those hungry mouths you are looking to feed.  The cherry on the cake has to be Niman Ranch’s succulent bacon-wrapped pork chop and Perdue’s whole chicken – perfect for weeknight meals or a more formal Sunday sit-down dinner. These are some awesome products that are just never a bad idea. Ever.

Consider all of your dinners planned for the week. Perdue Farms has everything you need to get through the week. Place your order today and get this pack delivered straight to your doorstep!

Gathering Bundles

For occasions when friends and family swing by with little notice, think about stocking your freezer with Perdue Farms’ most popular heat-and-serve items. I’m talking about awesome stuff with little prep work, including Niman Ranch’s Memphis-style pulled pork and amber ale-infused ribs!! Sick. How about Perdue’s herbed olive oil-tossed chicken wings and breaded organic chicken breast tenders?? These are so good and ready to heat and eat. Bing, bang, party. It’s just that easy, man.

In the event that you are a planner and you have more responsible, less spontaneous friends and family members, you can do some big-time work with a Sonoma Red pasture-raised certified organic whole chicken, which is air chilled to lock in flavor, and Niman Ranch’s heritage pork kielbasa, made with ground pork and a special blend of spices and slow smoked over applewood. Did I just say pork kielbasa? Why yes, yes I did.

Need a solution for a quick impromptu gathering or a formal sit-down feast? This collection has everything to keep your freezer packed with party foods that are perfect for any entertaining occasion! Order on Perdue Farms today.

Cheesy Egg & Fresh Pork Scramble

Pork, Pork, Pork

Have I mentioned how much I love pork? If you know me, then you know that this is just so very true. Pork is just amazing food. The versatility, flavor, and just pure awesomeness of it is almost too much to understand. That’s why I’m so pleased to be partnering with Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork on this post. I love to share my love with you!!! I mean, what animal can produce fresh pork loin, ham, chops, ribs, sausage, and bacon? What meat product is prominently featured in such wide range of cuisines, all the way from Asian to American Barbecue??

Go ahead, I’ll give you a second.

The answer is pork. See?

A Twist on Your Typical Dish

Ok, so now we are on the same page, I hope. The cool thing about my beloved pork is that aside from being versatile, it’s also pretty darn delicious. I guess the two qualities go hand-in-hand, really. You almost can’t have one without the other. The really cool thing is that you can put a twist on a classic, traditional dish. Simply swap out all of the same-old chicken or beef with some delicious, high-quality, all-natural fresh pork for a new, flavorful twist on classic dishes. Think tacos, roasts, and even egg scrambles. It makes for some flavorful and satisfying meals every night or on special nights! Make the holidays a little more spicy, or just make Tuesday night at home more spicy!! Why not??

While I really love to make (and eat) pork in so many ways, one of my favorites right now has to be with eggs. Egg Scramble to be exact. This is a great pair and really good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The flavor of the pork is perfect for the richness of eggs, especially when there is ample cheese and plenty of veggies involved. It’s just a really filling and satisfying meal that I seem to go to more and more. Let me share my Cheesy Egg & Fresh Pork Scramble recipe with you right now to show you what I mean!!

Cheesy Egg & Pork Scramble - cooking

Cheesy Egg & Fresh Pork Scramble

When talking about pork and eggs, there are just so many ways to do it – Smithfield bacon, ham, and sausage are all so common and work really well. But I also love to shake it up. Often times, I really love to mix in some Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork with my eggs. It really gives it a great flavor and adds texture to the dish. Plus, if you cut the pork loin into smaller slices or cubes, you can save so much time in the kitchen – which is a great tip for busy weeknights or last-minute holiday gatherings.

When I’m looking for fresh pork, Smithfield Primeis my go-to for any style of dish, because it’s high-quality, all-natural and versatile. When you start with a premium cut of meat, you don’t have to do too much to make a restaurant-quality meal, so it’s especially great during the holiday season!!

This dish is perfect for a special-occasion breakfasts, everyday meals, or holiday brunch!! This easy egg scramble is warm and hearty, with potatoes, fresh pork, cheese and sweet red and green peppers, and more. You can pick and choose what ingredients you’d like to put in it, and serve it for a casual supper, too. It’s all about you and how you want to enjoy!

Let me know what you think!!!

  5. Add half of the Smithfield Prime Fresh Pork and potatoes; saute 7-10 minutes longer.

  6. Meanwhile, combine the eggs, sour cream, and milk. You can use a blender or whisk. I like to make sure it's very light and bubbly. The more air incorporated, the lighter the eggs.
