Ostrich Nourish Bowl

A wholesome nourishing bowl to keep up with those health goals. The You First Ostrich is lean (less than 2% fat), locally farmed and free-range. Ostrich is an iron-rich protein, and a few slivers a top of a fresh veggie & grain bowl makes for a nourishing salad.⁠ Ostrich is best cooked rare or medium-rare.
