Physiotru Reviews

by Jency William (2019-04-29)

I spend a little extra on organic vegetables, Physiotru so I want to get the most out of them. I waste no usable part. I keep a large freezer safe container in the freezer and use it for my vegetable "waste." Onion peels, garlic peels, carrot tips and parsley stems all have loads of flavor. I put these into the container and use them for making stock. I keep two containers in the freezer for meat "waste." One container is for chicken, the other for beef. Organic bone-in meat is always cheaper than boneless. I cut the bones out myself and save them for stock. Any part that needs to be trimmed off of meat goes into the containers. When the containers are full, I make stock. It isn't as exact as making stock with a precise recipe: it always ends up a little different. But the stock is always good (better than store-bought) and close to free. There are countless reasons to eat organic food. It is the best choice for your health and the health of the environment. So why doesn't everyone go organic? There is a higher cost associated with organic food. It costs more to produce food naturally and that cost is passed on to the consumer. There are things that you can do to make the switch to organic less costly. There are four basic things you can do: grow what you can, spend your food dollars wisely, make most of your food from scratch and don't waste anything. Each article in this series will address one specific change you can make in the four areas. There is a herb that can be easily grown in most areas that packs a culinary double punch. Cilantro is commonly used in Asian, Latin and Indian cuisines. When the leafy green herb goes to seed it gives you the popular spice coriander.
