3 Reasons You Should Be Eating Lard

Despite what misguided opinion and conglomerate “food” manufacturers have tried to drill into our heads over the last 80 years or so, lard is actually far more healthy than any of the test-tube alternatives on grocery store shelves.

The pods can grow up to 20 inches long and are a gorgeous deep purple color with pale green tips.
