With today’s hurried lifestyles, we don’t always find it easy to eat as well as we could if we had more time. At Marrow and Spice we strive to help our customers optimize their nutrition by always having frozen entrees you can take home for healthy eating.
All of our entrees are made using nutritious whole ingredients without artificial colours, preservatives, or flavours. We also carry kombucha, grass-fed yogurt, organic cheese, curtido, sauerkraut, kimchi, and other lacto-fermented foods because of their wonderful health benefits.
Lacto-fermented foods are some of the oldest and healthiest on the planet. They promote the growth of friendly intestinal flora, aiding digestion and immune function. These foods balance the acidity of the stomach, help break down proteins and aid in the intake of iron. They contain large quantities of choline, which lowers blood pressure, increases the bio-availability of nutrients, and aids in the metabolism of fats. Lacto-fermented vegetables also contain acetylcholine, known to help reduce blood pressure and promote calmness and sleep.
Our local meats are drug and antibiotic free. If you are trying to cut back on calories or follow a Paleo diet, do yourself the favour of buying the best meats for protein and flavour without extra calories. Our pepperettes and salami are crowd favourites, made with lean old breed beef and pork.
Stop in today to add some of these healthful and tasty treats to your daily diet. While you are here, place your order for your holiday tourtiere or frozen entrees to stock in your freezer. If you prefer to cook your own, Marrow & Spice offers local pastured beef or pork roasts, traditional smoked ham, and free-range artisanal chicken as well as bone broths and traditionally rendered lard to use in your own recipes.
