MEAT & SEAFOOD EXOTIC VARIETIES HIGHEST QUALITY SELECTIONS A STORY OF Quality

PRIORITIZING OUR PLANET IS THE WAY WE DO FOOD

AFFORDABLE PRICES, U.S. FAMILY FARMS, AND MORE VARIETY We emphasize freshness, preventing food waste, local products, and transparency, not fancy display cases and ambiguous standards. Instead of display counters, with previously frozen products, we just have the best selection at the best prices— with sustainability as our guiding principle. In addition to the assortment of highest quality cuts, grinds, bacons, and sausages in our fresh cases, we carry both traditional and exotic varieties of meat and seafood in our frozen section. Find protein with a purpose when you shop our wide variety and boring will never describe your menu

We believe the wellbeing of our communities and our planet prospers when our food is humanely raised and sustainably sourced. We can create a healthy future by what we choose to put on our plates. That’s why we partner with local farmers, ranchers and fishermen who protect our waterways, regenerate our grasslands, reverse soil erosion and preserve habitats for future generations. When the health of all living things is the foundation for farming practices, we promote economic viability and environmental harmony. Our Meat and Seafood Departments are unique. We only offer selections produced in ways that nurture the health of animals, our communities, and the planet.

again—unless it’s boar you’re after. A healthier tomorrow begins today.

Heterocyclic Amines (HCAs) are what the Art of Grilling is NOT about! These carcinogenic compounds form when proteins, sugars, and creatine in meat react at high temperatures, but the upside is—we have some great good4u tips to help reduce their formation. We want you to showcase your skills at the grill in the most mouthwatering style while keeping your menu rooted in health! HEALTHY GRILLING Tips

Beer aficionados, this one’s for you! A 2015 study tested the effect of three types of beer— pilsner, non-alcoholic pilsner, and dark beer— used as marinades on the formation of HCAs in charcoal-grilled pork, compared to pork that has not been marinated. While all three beers resulted in a significant decrease in HCAs, the dark beer was most effective, resulting in 90% less HCAs forming compared to the non marinated pork. A previous study found similar results with beer and beef.

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kale contain compounds that specifically inhibit the toxicity associated with HCAs during the body’s detoxification process. In vitro studies have shown that green tea, red wine, blueberries, blackberries, red grapes, watermelon, and spinach can also protect against the toxicity of certain HCAs.

The final step in mastering the art of healthy grilling is to pair your meat entrée with sides and condiments that can minimize the harmful effects of HCAs in your body. One exceptional way to do this is to include fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, and yogurt to your meals with grilled meat (a burger topped with sauerkraut or kimchi? Yes, please!). Beneficial

The art of grilling demands finesse. Temperature, time, and even how often you wield the spatula matters. Healthier burgers aren’t flame-broiled or well done—they’re cooked at lower temps, flipped frequently, and served without charred black edges. Once temps begin to reach 400°F, HCA formation increases, and well-done meat has significantly more of them, so keep it low and juicy.

bacteria found in fermented foods, such as Lactobacilli and Streptococcus

thermophiles , have been shown to bind to HCAs in the intestines and inhibit their absorption.

GRILLED CHICKEN SALAD with Blackberry Balsamic Dressing

Serves: 4 | Total Time: 40 Minutes

Indulge in the delectable flavors of our Grilled Chicken Salad with Blackberry Balsamic Dressing. Crisp veggies, creamy avocado, crunchy pecans, and plump organic blackberries generously coated in a sweet and savory dressing. This salad is an ideal warm-weather dinner, inviting you to savor the vibrant tastes of summer.

FOR THE CHICKEN 1.5-pounds organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs Natural Grocers ® Brand Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to brush the chicken Natural Grocers Brand Bulk: 1 teaspoon Organic Thyme ½ teaspoon Real Salt ½ teaspoon Organic Ground Black Pepper FOR THE DRESSING

FOR THE SALAD 1 (5-ounce) container organic mixed baby greens 1 medium organic red pepper, diced 1 small organic cucumber, sliced ¼-1/2 cup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Pecan Halves or Pieces 1 ripe organic avocado, cubed ½ cup fresh organic blackberries INSTRUCTIONS 1. Place the chicken on a plate, pat dry with paper towels, brush with olive oil, and season both sides with salt, pepper, and thyme. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (~400° F). Once hot, place the chicken on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 6-10 minutes per side, depending on thickness, or until the internal temperature reads 170º F. Remove from grill and allow chicken to rest for 5-10 minutes. Cut into ½-inch strips (or as desired) for serving. 2. While the grill is heating up, make the dressing. Add the blackberries and water to a high-speed blender and process until smooth. Pour mixture into a mesh strainer set over a bowl. With the bottom of a ladle or a spatula, swirl the fruit in a circular motion against the strainer, pushing the purée through the strainer, leaving the seeds in the strainer basket. Scrape the pulp on the underside of the strainer into the bowl. Add the olive oil, Dijon mustard, vinegar, coconut aminos, maple syrup, salt, pepper, and thyme and whisk until well combined. Set it aside. 3. While the chicken is cooking, chop the veggies. Arrange the salad greens, vegetables, pecans, avocado, and blackberries in bowls. Top with sliced chicken breast and drizzle generously with the dressing. Serve immediately.

½ cup organic blackberries 2 tablespoons filtered water Natural Grocers Brand:

¼ cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 teaspoon Organic Dijon Mustard

2 tablespoons Organic Balsamic Vinegar 2 tablespoons Organic Coconut Aminos 2 teaspoons Organic Grade A Dark Maple Syrup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk: ½ teaspoon Real Salt ½ teaspoon Organic Ground Black Pepper ½ teaspoon Organic Thyme

CAESAR SALAD Wraps A new twist on Caesar salad! This plant-based wrap highlights summer’s freshest lettuce, tossed in a premade Caesar dressing topped with crunchy roasted garbanzo beans, all rolled up in a gluten-free wrap. Perfect for a light lunch or dinner, it’s on the table in 30 minutes or less. Serves: 4 | Total Time: 30 Minutes

INGREDIENTS 1 (16-ounce) can Natural Grocers ® Brand Organic Garbanzo Beans 2 tablespoons Natural Grocers Brand Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided ½ teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Real Salt, divided 1 tablespoon organic lemon juice 1 tablespoon organic tahini 4 tablespoons plant-based organic Caesar dressing, divided 1 head organic romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces 4-8 organic gluten-free tortillas (depending on size)

INSTRUCTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 450°F and place a baking sheet into the oven to heat. 2. Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans under cold water, reserving a few tablespoons of the liquid (aquafaba), then place half of the chickpeas on a clean kitchen towel. Cover with a second clean kitchen towel and rub the peas between the towels to dry them. For a crispier roasted chickpea remove the skins by gently pinching them off each garbanzo. 3. Toss the dry chickpeas with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt then carefully place them on the preheated baking sheet. Roast the beans for 10-12 minutes, or until crisp, shaking occasionally. Remove from the oven once crisp and allow to cool while making the rest of the wrap. The chickpeas will continue to crisp up as they cool. 4. While the chickpeas are roasting place the remaining chickpeas into a blender or food processor with the lemon juice, tahini, remaining salt and olive oil, and 2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing. Blend to create a smooth hummus. May add a little water or aquafaba for a smooth consistency. 5. Add the lettuce and remaining 2 tablespoons of Caesar dressing to a large bowl and toss to coat the lettuce. 5. Create the wraps by dividing the hummus, crispy chickpeas, and lettuce among the tortillas. Roll each into a wrap and serve immediately.
