Tyson® (no antibiotics EVER) Chicken Products

My husband, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my husband. We’ve known each other for 14 years. We dated for 5 of those years, and have been married for 6 of them. The time has totally flown by, namely because we love to laugh. A LOT. It’s all we do. (…most of this laughter stems from us making fun of each other but hey, it works). But I’ve gotta say, the hubs has really cranked it up a notch in the whole, making-fun-of-me thing over the last 17 months. Why, you ask? That’s precisely how long I’ve been a mom.

It’s really weird how being a mom has transformed me into a completely different person. I mean, I’m the same, but different. It’s a phenomenon, I’ll tell you that.

I think one of the most obvious and understandable ways that I’ve changed since motherhood struck me is the way that I think about food. I truly wonder if I ever looked at a label in my life before baby Taylor was born. But as soon as it came time to start giving her food, labels were all I looked at. If I was going to buy anything that was already prepared for me, like chicken, I had to be pretty sure it was something I felt good about giving her. Chicken can mean many different things these days….

One of my biggest concerns was giving her chicken that had been raised with antibiotics. This girl didn’t need an antibiotic until she was well into her first year (when an ear infection finally got her)…so I sure as HECK wasn’t going to willingly feed her chicken that had been raised on them!

No no no. Not today, not ever.

Enter my friend Sarah. My best friend Sarah, that is. She is full of great advice, (she’s the one who suggested that I start a food blog, I mean helloo….)- so I pretty much always listen to what this girl says. I remember her recommending specially marked Tyson® chicken products with the No Antibiotic Ever seal to me when I was complaining about scrambling to figure out what to feed Taylor, and quickly, after work. That baby Tay comes home hangry. However, Sarah and I were college roommates, so I knew she used to pay as much attention to labels as I used to (which is none). So imagine my surprise when she pointed out that Tyson chicken products have a variety of chicken with no antibiotics ever, a label that is proudly displayed on the front of specially marked packages (I guess the “mom transformation” affected Sarah as well). She went on to explain that Tyson chicken has a long standing dedication to quality (since 1935 I later learned), and is made with 100% all-natural ingredients (no artificial ingredients, and minimally processed). That is precisely what I had been looking for.

Welp, fast-forward to my next Walmart visit. I proudly texted Sarah a picture of about 5 different Tyson chicken products in my cart, all with the gorgeous label that I had been longing for: no antibiotics ever. We’re talking chicken strips, fresh chicken, chicken nuggets, drumsticks…. (See? Dreams really do come true!)

This doesn’t just help me feed Taylor, but my husband and I love topping our salads with this chicken, eating it in a wrap, and dipping it into different sweet and savory sauces. This chicken…it saved my life. *Cue the violin music*

(Okay, a bit dramatic maybe, but I swear I really could shed a tear over this. I can shed a tear over a soap commercial if I want to. It’s part of the mom transformation people.)

So, the next time you’re at Walmart look for the specially marked, no antibiotics ever, packages of Tyson chicken products. You can feel good about serving it to your family!
