Food brand recommendations
These are some of my favorite food brands and products (and though it would be awesome, I’m not getting paid by anyone to endorse them).
Grass Fed/Pasture Raised Meats and Eggs:
U.S. Wellness Meats, my favorite online resource for meat (best overall quality, selection & prices).
el Sachichero, local Santa Cruz butcher with tons of pastured meats, poultry, sausages, tallow, and more.
