My DH and I went to Arby's for lunch the other day. The sign that greeted us as we walked in the door said something to the effect of: "Now offering 100% All Natural chicken".
Cool, I thought - - the mainstream is finally getting it. Then I read a little more from the propaganda at each table: "no water, salt, or phospates injected." Oh . . . so that's it.
Granted, I'll give Arby's credit for going this far. But, I want happy chickens, too. Not chickens that have spent their entire lives in cramped, dirty, dark confinement. I want chickens who have free run of the yard, who aren't de-beaked, who aren't chock full of antibiotics and growth hormones.
I had the french dip instead...do you think those sandwiches are made from happy cows?
