I always spend some time dressing up whatever meat alternative roast I decided on that year. I don't eat too many "mock meat" products and try to go pretty natural with fresh vegetables, holiday times are a time to indulge! In addition to some of my favorite fresh vegetables, you can never go wrong with the cranberry sauce. Cranberry sauce has always been a welcome and tasteful addition to my vegetable plates. The sweet and tart flavor pairs well with hearty and rich vegetables, fake turkey, or even the real stuff for my carnivorous family members. Pacific Foods Organic Jellied Cranberry Sauce, has definitely become the right choice, that can make me feel good bringing it to the table. The ingredient list is short enough for you to know its quality. It's taste is supreme without all the added preservatives and other junk. Most of all, the packaging is simple and sustainable. Using 1/3 of the packaging compared to a can, Pacific Foods Organic Jellied Cranberry Sauce comes in a Tetra Pak® carton, that is made of 70% paper, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees and its entirely recyclable. If you aren't feeling the love now, you might never!
Cartons help save space, they are easy to store and you don't even need a can opener. I know that the last thing I want to fool with on Thanksgiving day are my faulty can openers. Yes, I have more than one that doesn't work well, what can I say?
When we are considering the things that we are thankful for, I like to leave the world with a little thank you as well. I try and keep it clean, live sustainably, recycle, and eat healthy for myself and for our earth. Pacific Foods is making it awfully easy for me to do just that.
