Not everyone loves meat…many people choose to be vegetarian or vegan based on principle. I, however, am a meat lover. I eat protein in some form at every meal 4-6 times a day. Today on Get Fit Portland we talked with Bruce the main butcher at Zupan’s, a local specialty grocer in Portland OR. Zupan’s which has been open for 35 years, is dedicated to providing high quality products, quite often from local producers.

We got a lot of great information about different cuts and types of meat as well as cooking methods. We learned that Zupan’s not only provides high quality local products but that they display that information for the consumer and help you purchase and pair products that will compliment each other. If you are in Portland go say “hi” to Bruce at the Burnside location and pick up some quality local meats, then stop by and meet Susan who runs the salt bar to find out how to better prepare and season your foods.

Zupan’s would like you to become a Facebook fan as well, once you do, you are automatically entered to win FREE gift cards to their store.

Upcoming event this weekend July 24/25 at the Zupan’s on Macadam, they will be hosting a Farmer’s Market with many exciting things to see and taste.

My final thought on today’s show was that “food is fuel”. I am very passionate about that concept. Even more important, the type of fuel you consume defines your efficiency.

What should you look for?
high quality
organic products
free of pesticides and antibiotics
minimally processed
and locally produced

Follow these guidelines as much as possible and you will find yourself feeling better in no time.

Have a happy and healthy day and don’t forget to eat your meat!
