Over the past month, I’ve been trying my best to support local farmers by purchasing as many of my fruits, veggies and meats as possible from local farmers markets and grocers, instead of getting them from big box stores. And, truthfully - it’s been one of the best things I’ve ever done!
Not only has this little experiment forced me to get outside and explore all of the local markets in my area, but it’s also helped me to discover the incredible difference in taste & quality of local foods… all while saving me some money in the long run! (Seriously, the countless benefits wildly outweigh the convenience of big box stores!)
But, I get it. Sometimes it’s just easier to shop at a big box store - and that’s why my new friends at West Side Beef are determined to change that.
West Side Beef is a local meat company that expertly sources, butchers, vacuum seals and ships high-quality cuts of meat directly to your door. These meats are delivered fresh, not frozen, and are truly some of the best quality I’ve ever had.
When they heard I was on a mission to try more local food products, they instantly contacted me so I could get my hands on a few samples of their most popular cuts of meats for my next grocery haul. (And they couldn’t have come at a better time!)
With the weather getting a little sunnier and the patios starting to open up, my mind instantly goes to tacos and margaritas. (Is that just me!?)
As you already know, I’m a huge lover of Mexican food on a sunny day, which is why these Spicy Steak Tacos with Lime Yogurt is literally the PERFECT meal to enjoy on whether you’re on a patio, on your balcony, or in your backyard.
Margaritas are optional, but highly recommended!
