Basic Sausage is a Health Food
Home Made Sausage for Healthy Eating
My daddy Told me if I want good sausage–make my own. I don’t need flavorings and seasonings. “Jerry, just add some salt, pepper and a little sage.)
Sage will help prevent Diabetes. Sage can calm intestinal spasms and treat gas problems. Sage has antimicrobial benefits, and is also a brain food.
Pork is a health food
Although red meat has had a lot of bad press over the last 50-years, pork has many health benefits. It is loaded with nutrients that we need–and haven’t been getting in our diets. Pork contains Iron, Magnesium, Omega 3s, and Protein; this meat is a body builder’s delight. I sleep well when I eat unprocessed pork for supper.
Cooking Pork for Healthy Eating
I bought three pounds of good, basic pork sausage and fried it for snacks. Big problem: I added too much of my beloved SEA SALT, and too much plain old SAGE. I decided to save the week’s food supply; I added three flavorful yellow onions, a pound of green peppers from my freezer, and quart of tomato sauce (tomato, basil and garlic) from Sam’s.
Making Meals for the Troops
I placed the whole mess into my favorite stainless steel, three-ply-bottom cooking pot and simmered for an hour. This diluted the salt and the sage. Made a wonderfully flavorful pot of “Stew.”
Packaging and Freezing for Future Meals
I partial out the “King’s Feast”, into freezer bags, three meals per bag. Now I can keep this in the freezer for at least a month or two. When I thaw this food, I can dine for a week on each package.
