This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken. I only share brands that I truly love.

Chicken is a staple protein used in many of the recipes I create that are not only delicious but good for you, so I was pleased as punch to share one of my favorite brands – Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken.

I love how versatile chicken is and how delicious Foster Farms chicken tastes. Foster Farms’ Simply Raised Chicken is all-natural, antibiotic-free, and locally grown in the Pacific Northwest. Each year, they are independently audited and certified by the American Humane Association. They also put all their employees through an animal welfare training program that is one of the most comprehensive in the poultry industry.

It’s so reassuring to know that Foster Farms raises all their chickens without any antibiotics, hormones or steroids and are fed 100% vegetarian fed.

Their promise: “Foster Farms is actively committed to responsible growing practices that help preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics for human health and medicine. We share a common goal with medical, veterinary and government leaders in working to curb antibiotic-resistance in humans that may be linked to livestock production. Foster Farms is working toward a goal of eliminating the use of all antibiotics that are used in human medicine, except in those instances where the clinical health of a flock is at risk.”

Foster Farms’ Deep-Rooted History

Foster Farms was founded by Max and Verda Foster way back in 1939. They invested in an 80-acre farm near Modesto, California, and started raising turkeys. Then, they raised chickens, built a feed silo, and kept expanding their business over the years. When their three sons were grown, they took over the family business and built new facilities and added new product lines.

Since 1987, Foster Farms has worked with more than 30 family-owned farms in Washington and Oregon to produce locally raised chickens. In 2009, they acquired a poultry production plant in Louisiana, which save more than a thousand plant jobs and renewed contracts with over 100 local poultry farms.

They just celebrated their 75th anniversary in 2014 on the very farm where Max and Verda started it all.

The New Comfort Food Campaign

As people are becoming more health-conscious these days and their tastes and preferences are changing, Foster Farms has committed to serving its communities with locally raised, high-quality products.

This new campaign is helping people evolve their perceptions when they think about comfort foods. Usually, you may think about heavy, rich foods, like meatloaf and mac ‘n cheese, spaghetti, pizza, or burger and fries. Foster Farms wants to help shift our thinking to a more healthful, mindful way of eating.

Today’s feel-good meals don’t have to be laden with bad fats, high in calories and loaded with unhealthy ingredients that you eat only on special occasions or certain nights of the week. You can still eat delicious, healthy comfort meals with premium quality ingredients. And, it no longer has to be an indulgence – since it’s healthy, you can eat it every day of the week.

For me, when I want comfort food, I don’t want to sacrifice taste, feel guilty or ashamed for eating the dish, or worry how it will affect my health. I want it to taste delicious without the unhealthy side effects. When I use Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken in my new comfort food dishes, I feel great about feeding it to myself and my family.

You can learn more about Foster Farms’ “New Comfort Food” campaign and grab some tasty new recipes to try here.
