Happy 4th of July! We hope everyone is having a relaxing holiday weekend. We are going to fire up the grill today to grill steaks and kabobs over all-natural Ono Charcoal. Please remember to keep our troops in mind this weekend - those still serving overseas and the wounded warriors here at home. We want to thank them for their continued service and dedication to protecting our freedom.
Looking for unique grilling ideas? Visit our 4th of July blog for recipes, pictures and a delicious strawberry lemonade! Now is a great time to stock up on Ono Charcoal, ribeye steaks, and Beef Back Ribs - both are on sale this week!
Butter is back! We have finally been able to restock our salted, grass-fed butter. We have been getting phone calls and emails daily, asking about its return. So if you haven't tried the butter yet - now is a great time to see what you've been missing! We expect unsalted butter to restock next Friday, July 9.

EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: email@example.com
This week my accupuncturist said I will probably have a battle with constipation the rest of my life as one of the by-products of chemo and that I should avoid beef as it is hard to digest. Fish and chicken were recommended as the predominant protein choice. Do you agree?
I eat low carb so I do not eat fruits, I also avoid all gluten foods due to sensitivity that developed and because of the carbs. She is using a method called NAET to clear me of food sensitivities.
Thank you for any insight you may have to share.
(P.S. I think chemo is generally not the way to go. But did not have better information at the time to work from.)
With my appreciation,
When you are in the situation that you are, you don't have to explain to me your choices, sometimes we are forced to make choices in a nick of time, and as you know they are hard. I am going to apologize for the hard to digest situation and yes, you can eat meat, but it must be organic if you are going to eat any.
Meat is not harder to digest if you have your stomach acid working well and if it is organic. The only reason I would make you stop eating meat is if you were allergic to it on a blood test, or you have severe pain every time you eat it.
Go ahead and continue eating meat if you don't have pain, bloating or any other complaints, but make sure is organic.
One more thing, if you do have a deficiency in Lipase then you might have a hard time digesting meat. That only happens if you don't have your gallbladder or your pancreas is not working well and you didn't mention that you suffer from either.
Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
- 4 lamb chops
- 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup minced shallots
- 1/3 cup aged balsamic vinegar
- 3/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a small bowl or cup, mix together the rosemary, basil, thyme, salt and pepper. Rub this mixture onto the lamb chops on both sides. Place them on a plate, cover and set aside for 15 minutes to absorb the flavors.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place lamb chops in the skillet, and cook for about 3 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare, or continue to cook to your desired doneness. Remove from the skillet, and keep warm on a serving platter.
- Add shallots to the skillet, and cook for a few minutes, just until browned. Stir in vinegar, scraping any bits of lamb from the bottom of the skillet, then stir in the chicken broth.
- Continue to cook and stir over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced by half. If you don't, the sauce will be too runny. Remove from heat, and stir in the butter. Pour over the lamb chops, and serve.

|What Our Customers Are Saying
This is Jorge from San Juan, Puerto Rico. This was my first order from you - I got my meat in less than 24 hours after it shipped.
I'm 34 and I have never ordered meat through the internet! I was a bit skeptical about shipment and refrigeration in-transit but when I got the package today I was impressed how SUPERB the meat was packed (in all senses: cooling,vacuum, etc).
I just had a chance to taste the meat and it's incredibly delicious! This is my very first time eating grass-fed beef!
I wish you huge success with your business and you now have a loyal customer down here.
All the best,
