Since yesterday was labor day... I thought I review a food that I just recently tried for the first time (that a lot of people chow down on labor day) after a long time of always walking by it in the store telling myself... "you should really try those"....
Want to know what I tried?
Well even if you could care less I am going to tell you anyways... Applegate Farms Grass-Fed Hot Dogs!!
So think of the last hot dog you ate... did you like it... or did you just think... "holy moly I am eating a lot of unhealthy calories for something so small"... well now you NO LONGER have to think that way because these hot dogs I found are SPOT ON (in taste) to the real thing but are actually HEALTHY FOR YOU!
Grass-Fed & Grass-Finished Red Meat (including hot dogs) is by far superior to grain-fed & grain-finished red meats... check out why at EatWild.com... that website explains it so much better than I ever can!
Really though... I am sure you want to know just how these suckers taste: well let's just say I was dying (of happiness) when I was eating them because man, were they good! They taste just like the originals and with a mix of mustard and ketchup (yes, my Heinz Sugar Free Ketchup does the trick, no doubt)... my taste buds start doing the tango!
Since I don't eat bread, I wrapped these puppies (ha ha, pun intended) in lettuce boats which worked out incredibly well...
In fact I liked these hot dogs so much, I bought 2 more packages at the store today: they were on sale for $3.99 per package... each package holding 8 dogs...
Each dog has 110 calories... so if you ate 5 dogs, you would be eating just 550 calories... well I'm no sure if you think that is a lot or not but for me that's definitely something I will be doing in the near future! ha ha.
As for the ingredients... each dog is packed with: Organic Grass-Fed Beef, Water, Contains Less Than 2% Of The Following: Sea Salt, Organic Spices, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Paprika, Celery Powder, Organic Onion, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (Not From Milk). --> Looks like a WINNER in my mind: no sugar or any other "kookie" ingredients that might RUIN my hot dog loving experience!
Even though hot dog season is coming to a close... I will most definitely be buying these suckers through the winter because they could always be used in stews, scrambled eggs, salads... just use your imagination!
Honestly though, if you were apprehensive about trying these dogs out like I was... push that curiosity aside and buy a package the next time you seem em'- well work your money, hands down!
**PS: These hot dogs are ALREADY cooked so they are extremely easy & quick for when you or your family is on the go but need a protein packed snack/meal!**
