Congratulations also goes out to the submitters of: Cheesy Turkey Portobello Burgers submitted by Terry D., White Sangria-Poached Salmon with Summer Fruit Salad by Mary B. and Beef Fajitas by Ellen M.
The winning recipe is featured in our recipe section this week, and the winning chef will be our next Featured Home Chef. Stay tuned to the next couple newsletters to view the delicious runner-up recipes also.

US Wellness Meats was proud to sponsor Strongman Steve during the local Ewing, Missouri Park Days. At only 5 feet 10 inches and weighing in at 225, 53-year-old Steve Schmidt doesn't look like the typical strongman competitor, but wait until you see what he did this weekend!
From Leslie, Missouri, Steve has turned an old chicken coop on his farm into his gym, where he lifts and bends metal with his teeth. This unassuming hero holds many world records and national championships and we were fortunate to be able to witness his strength this weekend.
Back-to-school season is fast approaching! We have tried to ease the transition by providing a Back to School Sampler - perfect for packing lunches or to send with college students as they head back to the dorms. This handy sale package is stocked with pre-cooked, ready to cook, and ready-to-eat products that will leave students more time to study!

QUESTIONS TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Dr. Serrano,
We had a speaker here on our wellness plan who spoke about grass-fed beef: "Fat is fat. It's a little better for you but you still get cholesterol." Is grass-fed any help in lowering cholesterol?
Wow, I hope he eats fat because fat is not fat. If that is true why eat fish and chicken and not meat?
There are four types of fats: saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and hydrogenated fats. I will not go into details but fat is not fat. Also, recent research shows that the more "brown" fat we have the less fat we are.
I have touched this subject before but I will discuss it again. Fat is the biggest storage component in our system and the fourth filter of the body, meaning the body cleans itself by the liver, kidneys, bones, and finally the fat, which is where we store toxins, drugs, etc.
When the liver cleanses your body, it has to make the toxin either water soluble or fat soluble. Then the kidneys get rid of the water soluble toxins and the gall bladder gets rid of the fat soluble toxins. That is, if they are not overwhelmed. Because of our diets, sometimes the filters are not able to do it, so the second best way is to put it away, is when fat cells become full of toxins.
Phil, the same thing happens to animals. If you feed toxins constantly to the animals, and they do, then the fat areas in the chicken, fish, or meat will have the toxins in it. Fat is not fat. Why are lard and olive oil so different, why are canola oil and olive oil so different?
Do not listen to the speaker.
Also, cholesterol is cholesterol but did you know that your body makes 60% of the cholesterol in your body and if you don't eat enough it will make more? Cholesterol is the most abundant component in your cells, it is necessary for you to be alive and all the sex hormones are made out of cholesterol.
No Phil, fat is not fat. Only one man came from death and his name was Jesus and he ate the fattiest meat there was- sheep, fish, and goats, and drank wine and I think I will do as HE did.
Phil your brain is 63% fat and why is that? Ask your speaker.
Grilled Thai Chicken Skewers
Grilled Thai Chicken Skewers
- ½ cup low-fat Sesame Ginger dressing (such as Newman's Own)
- 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce*
- 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 serrano chile, stemmed and chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, some reserved for garnish
- 1/3 cup fresh basil
- 1/3 cup fresh mint
- 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce*
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Chopped cilantro for garnish
* Many of our readers and customers prefer to avoid soy sauce, if you choose to avoid it, try this recipe:
- Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). If using bamboo skewers soak in water at least 30 minutes.
- Combine all marinade ingredients in a blender and pulse until well blended. Pour marinade over chicken and refrigerate at least 45 minutes, up to 5 hours.
- Thread chicken onto metal or bamboo skewers. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 6-8 minutes.
- Sprinkle with reserved cilantro.
- For the dipping sauce mix all ingredients, sprinkle with cilantro and serve in individual bowls on the side.
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together all ingredients. Boil gently until liquid is reduced to about 1 cup, about 15 minutes.
- 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons dark molasses
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 pinch white pepper
- 1 pinch garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cups beef stock
