I recently found a small shop in Kyle that sells Grass Fed Beef from local Farmers as well as Produce grown locally! Char and I stopped in after Shoeless Sean Norton had recommended it! As you know I’m a big fan of Paleo, and have had a great deal of success with Paleo and eating a more Ketogenic diet. I’m always looking for good locally grown food and since moving to Kyle I usually shop when I’m in Austin. We stopped by Cross Plants and Produce the other day and it was amazing! We met Jennifer Cross who is the co-owner with her husband Nathan. We were met at the door by their Black Lab, Duke and Jennifer who was wearing a Crossfit tank so we knew we were in the right place!
Meeting people who are like minded, and are trying to educate folks on healthy, fresh foods and understand how very important food is on an epigenetic level is always great! And like Char and I, they also understand sometimes a pizza just tastes great too! I say this because they understand being fanatical about any style of eating and never allowing any deviation from a food philosophy is just too much! They’re regular, super cool folks following their passion and helping people.
The grass fed meat including beef, pork, bacon, cured and uncured, and bones for making bone broth all come from Farms in the area! They can also do a larger order of grass fed beef if you want to! They offer classes and their web site gives you all the information you need to see the upcoming events.
If you live in Kyle or are down that way, check it out! Super cool people and an awesome vibe! And in the interest of full disclosure, I don’t get any kickbacks or anything for me talking about the place. I just like to support likeminded people following their passion and doing something positive in the world and I shop there now! http://crossplantsandproduce.com/
