We have made it through another busy month here at US Wellness Meats! September is a month we have been looking forward to for awhile, as we will be celebrating our 10-Year Anniversary! In honor of this feat and to thank our loyal customers who have supported us for 10 years, we are having a different give-a-way/contest/sale each week in September!
To kick off our Anniversary month, we got together and talked about our favorite products. We decided our first prize should include our Top 10 Favorites! Once lucky winner will get to take home some of our personal favorites and best kept secrets here at US Wellness. Winning is easy - simply visit our blog and leave a comment. That's it. The winner will be drawn next Friday, September 3. Stay tuned to the newsletter, our blog, Twitter and Facebook for more chances to win!
Speaking of winning, we wrapped up the Blue Ribbon Recipe Contest this week. Fair season is coming to a close here in Missouri, and fair food has been on our minds all summer! With that in mind, we decided that Mustard-Garlic Grilled Beef Skewers were our favorite summer recipe treat! Congratulations to Mark C. for submitting the winning recipe! We also decided we couldn't leave fair season behind without dessert, so an honorable mention goes out to Sarah D. for her Oatmeal Gogi Berry Cookies. See our recipe section below for the easy Beef Skewers recipe, and our blog for both recipes and photos!
We are always looking for an excuse to use the grill here at US Wellness. Labor Day is fast approaching, and while we are sad summer is coming to an end, we look forward to another grilling holiday! If you order before this Wednesday at 10:00 am CST we can ensure your order will arrive in time for weekend grilling. Need steaks to grill? Now is a perfect time to try our NY Strips and Delmonicos, both are on sale this week! Our featured volume discount items this week are all ready to be thrown on the grill: Sugar Free Beef Franks, Chicken Cutlets, and Butterfly Boneless Pork Chops. Stock up, because the more you buy the more you save!
If you are in the Lehi, UT area, be sure and stop by Sliders Gourmet, a new restaurant that just opened this month. They are using our grass-fed beef tallow to fry all their french fries in. Hopefully more restaurants will catch onto this healthy-fry idea!
Pork Update: Due the pork shortage in the US, the price of raw pork products has continued to climb in the last year. Unfortunately, we have no choice but to also raise the price of our pork products. As of September 3, you will see an 8% increase in pork prices.
US Wellness Trivia Contest!

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests! In the last news alert, we asked: When
Dr. Weston A. Price was in Africa studying the diets of primitive
tribes, which group considered animal liver so sacred 'that it may not
be touched by human hands...it is eaten both raw and cooked'?
The answer was: The Neurs Tribe.

EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: email@example.com
Dear Dr. Serrano,
No, I am not a vegetarian but I was recently reading a book by Dr. Fhurman called "Eat To Live".
In short he made mention that the China Project is the longest and most extensive study ever done. He says that meat added to one's diet causes cancer and chicken seems to be highly cancerous, even organic. Please help!
I only have one thing to say- you will have to move to China to make this book a reality show. The author took studies and research and twisted them. The oldest book in history is the bible and the people ate meat, this China book is actually annoying.
In my office, I see some vegetarians and my wife sees a bunch and I can tell you 100% of them have a lot of problems. Now, if you want to be a vegetarian make sure you are a vegetarian and not a grainian (yes I made this word up, but I also made up the definition: a race that supposedly is vegetarian but in reality they eat grains all the time such as pasta, breads, cereals, rice, corn, and the occasional vegetable).
You can eat low fat if you want to, and some people need to eat that way, but make sure you get the essential fatty acids and fats that you need for your brain, digestive system, heart, skin and nervous system.
Sorry, the biggest study? How did he do it? How did he come to the conclusions and what kind of chicken and meat was consumed? Was it contaminated? Was it true chicken and was it organic?
Mustard-Garlic Grilled Beef Skewers
Garlic Mustard Glaze:
- 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup grainy mustard
- 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons Spanish paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce*
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
*See our soy sauce substitute
- Whisk together all glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before using.
- Heat grill to high. Skewer 2 pieces of the beef onto 2 skewers so that the meat lies flat.
- Brush the meat liberally on both sides with the Garlic-Mustard Glaze.
- Grill the meat for 2 to 3 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked to medium-rare doneness, brushing with the remaining glaze while grilling.
Remove from grill and serve.

|What Our Customers Are Saying
Thanks for the information. I fed my dogs some of the partially thawed bison
today and they were saying "hey we missed this stuff!" (I ran out almost a week ago and they are used to eating it about 3 times a week.)
My 11-year-old dog really enjoyed the knuckle bone
the day before he had some surgery. You should have seen him, and his teeth are a lot cleaner. He loved it. He got a real workout. I cannot get him interested in chews at all but both times I gave him one of your bones he never lost interest. I offered it to the younger dog but the older dog wanted it more. I have another one left for him when he recovers. Both dogs also love the Turkey Jerky
