Applegate Feature, Perfect for Holiday Platters and Snacks! #sponsored #RealFoodHasAStory

Are you prepared for unexpected visitors this time of year?  It seems to be the time when friends, neighbors and family pop in for one reason or another.  I've learned to keep the refrigerator a little extra full this time of year just for that reason!  First, a confession: I used to keep some not-so-healthy things stocked in my freezer for when guests came by. This was right after I got married when food quality wasn't at the top of my priorities. It wasn't until my aunt brought to my attention that the little quiches were filled with preservatives and things I couldn't pronounce, I realized I could just make my own and have products on hand that would be convenient and good for us. Applegate products are a great option to have on hand because they are protein packed, delicious options for party platters, quick snack lunches on the go, and impromptu guests. We've been big Applegate connoisseurs for years now because they offer natural and organic meat and cheese options our whole family loves. I like to be able to actually pronounce the ingredients in my family's food.  Luckily, Applegate makes that possible!  Here, I created a quick meat and cheese platter, including their delicious Natural Cheddar Cheese, Turkey Breast and Ham.  Made with whole cuts of humanely raised turkey and pork, these make the perfect addition to your holiday platters and beyond!  Pair with some delicious crackers and fruit and you're good to go! 
Applegate products are carefully packaged in resealable packages to ensure freshness!  
We also enjoy quick, protein filled lunches and snack plates with these delicious meats from Applegate naturals! 
This season, Applegate has launched a holiday campaign that you guys will love! They're asking all their fans to share their favorite holiday food story for your chance to win one of five $1,000 grants to give to the food charity of their choice! Do you have a time when you and your family gathered around the food table and the conversation led to an "aha moment"? Was there a time when you realized those little cocktail meatballs you love so much might not be packed with healthy stuff?  Share your store at Real Food has A Story and be entered to win one of five $1000 grants to the food charity of your choice!  Tis the season to give with Applegate and get the conversation going!

*Please note, I did receive products to review but all opinions, as always are my own!*
