Browsing the "KOL Foods" Category →

Grass fed animals have eaten nothing but their mother’s milk and fresh grass from the time they were born. Organic certification means the meat is hormone free which makes it much better for you. I am proud to partner with KOL Foods to create recipes using their high quality meat, chicken and fish and support the vision of an honest and sustainable food chain. If you have questions about the recipes in this category, feel free to reach out to me; @ysilver on Twitter.
