U.S. Wellness News Alert

Best Baby Diet, Ways to Prevent Heart Disease, Rib Sales, Trivia Discount

March 28, 2010
Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,

March has flown by here at US Wellness Meats!  We have been very busy this month and would like to thank our dedicated customers for their continued support!

We are very excited to introduce some new products this week: GoodOnYa Bars.  We were lucky enough to receive a few samples, which were quickly devoured by the US Wellness Staff, and we knew we had to share them with our customers!  They are just as healthy as they are delicious - full of nutrient dense, organic and raw ingredients.  Not only are the bars perfect, but the company is amazing as well - they care about the environment just as much as we do!  They live on the motto that "Every Ingredient Matters", and this includes everything - from the oats and seeds to the wrapper they are packaged in.  We are excited to introduce 3 flavors this week: the Breakfast Bar, Peanut Butter Honey, and Peanut Butter Chocolate.  Better stock up while you can because these will disappear quickly!

Are you looking for an easy way to prevent heart disease?  Do you eat nuts?  According to Jonny Bowden in The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, "People who eat nuts regularly are less likely to have heart attacks or to die from heart disease than those who don't."  He goes on to explain the reason for this may be that nuts contain arginine, which is an amino acid that helps protect the inner lining of arterial walls, thus helping prevent plaque from forming in arteries. 

You can find some of the healthiest nuts right here at US Wellness Meats: Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Cashews, Pecans, Walnuts, all of which are "better than roasted."  This means they have been soaked, sprouted and dehydrated, making them easier to digest since this process removes phytates, which have been known to inhibit digestion.  These make the perfect mid-day snack, are excellent in lunchboxes and are handy travel snacks. 

We have all heard how cows are bad for the environment because of all the methane gas they produce.  Well, Dr. Mercola has a different take on that.  Read his informative article to find out why grass-fed cattle are better for the environment and learn how much of a carbon footprint cattle actually leave. 

Have you become a fan on Facebook yet?  It's not too late!  Visit our Facebook page to hear author Stanley Fishman talk about grass-fed beef, and keep up with all the latest US Wellness news.  Our Blog this week has special Easter recipes, as well as all-natural Easter egg dyes!

To get ready for spring grilling season, we have an Easy Kabob recipe featured in the recipe section this week.  Tender cuts of NY Strip Steak make the perfect kabobs and now is the perfect time to stock up because they are on sale this week!

US Wellness Trivia Contest! 
The first 30 responders who email the answer to the following trivia question will receive a 15% discount code via email on Monday morning, which is good for 30 days.  "Approximately how many Marshmallow Peeps are sold each Easter?"  Please email your answers to blog@grasslandbeef.com.

If you are looking for a healthier treat to stock Easter baskets this year - check out our Raw Organic Chocolate Bars, GoodOnYa Bars, or one of our delicious Trail Mixes!

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests!  In the last news alert, we asked: What US city is considering a tax on soda and what are your thoughts on this?  Turns out there are several cities in the U.S. currently proposing taxes on soda, those making the news recently are New York City and Chicago.  It was very interesting reading the feedback!  Many readers thought it was a good idea, others worried that diet soda would not be taxed, which is not much better than regular sodas.  Other readers thought this is just another example of too much control by the government, and that it is not educating people on the dangers of soda consumption.  There are pros and cons to every situation.  We do our best to avoid soda, and think that the public needs to be better educated on the dangers of this addicting drink.  Thanks for your thoughts!

Best March Regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Tressa, and Jennifer, on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: eathealthy@grasslandbeef.com


Hi Dr. Serrano,
I have been VERY surprised at the limited amount of information out there about feeding babies. We all know to breast feed but beyond that parents are left wondering what to feed their 6, 9 or 12 month old. I have one-year-old twins and have had to devise my own diet for them, much to the admonishment of relatives and friends. Under pressure and against my better judgement, I started them at 4 months with rice cereal and jarred bananas. Luckily that only lasted a couple of weeks! Now I make almost all their food with fresh, organic ingredients.
Their diet now consists of: fish (salmon and cod), grass-fed beef, chicken, eggs (one daily), chicken livers (once a week), whole milk yogurt, pumpkin seeds, wild blueberries, green vegetables with butter and a porridge of organic multi-grains, beans and brewer's yeast. I also supplement with cod liver oil and a bit of coconut oil. I have built up to 3 meals a day starting at 11 months. They are also now on formula, about 25 ounces a day.

I am using Enfamil Premium formula and have begun adding a bit of local organic milk to it recently. My pediatrician advocates discontinuing formula completely at one year and I disagree. They eat solids fairly well but I am not fond of such an abrupt change, not to mention they have begun to get just a bit picky with all foods. Do you think I should continue formula for a few more months? My thinking was to continue "some" formula and the local milk until 18-24 months.
Also I have had my vitamin D levels checked and they are good. I will ask my pediatrician to check the babies. One final question: I began the babies on egg yolk pureed in their milk at 3 1/2 months. Do you think this is too early for such a food? What are the consequences of feeding such a dense food too early? I want to learn from our mistakes and successes for future children.

Does this sound appropriate for such young children? I should mention they have yet to be sick - not even a stuffy nose. We are planning on having another child and I plan to follow the same basic principles. The problem is that I have felt conflicted since beginning them on solid food. When is the right time to introduce certain foods? What foods are too taxing on their immature system? Should I wait longer than 4 months to begin solid food? Should I stay away from grains completely?
I am so very grateful for your response, thank you for any help you can give me.


Dear K.C.,

Wow, I am impressed.  That is so awesome that you are spending that much time with your children and the dedication you display. 
Your diet is awesome, but remember what you eat makes your breast milk, so make sure you also supplement yourself, especially with a good multivitamin.  I recommend Food Multi by Innate, you can call (800) 634-6342 and use code SER030 so you get a discount.  

Your fats are excellent. I would introduce vegetables, seafood, fowl, eggs, fruits, and dairy in that order and leave grains for the end.  Make sure that you cook or consume these foods in different ways.  For example, sometimes cooked, other times pureed, etc.  Try to breast feed for at least 6 to 8 months and if possible 12 months. I know it is hard but with your dedication you can do anything.

I am so proud of you, mothers are always right, and you are right.  You can go ahead and stop the formula, your babies will be okay.  Keep doing what you are doing: organic milk, eggs, (make sure you feed the eggs cooked in different ways) and no, the way you are feeding is not too dense at all. 

Actually, humans are made to adapt to any situation so they can survive, and what you are doing is so advanced that your babies are going to be healthy, and ahead of any other babies.  So congratulations, stop the formula, and let's eat.
God bless you.
Again, congratulations.

Dr. Serrano

  Easy Kabobs

We are so anxious for summer and grilling season and are finally seeing some warmer days, so we decided to feature an easy kabob recipe to kick off spring grilling! 

NY Strip KabobsIngredients:
  • 2 lbs NY Kabobs
  • 2 bell peppers, red and yellow chopped in large pieces
  • 1 sweet onion chopped in large pieces
  • 1 summer squash, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 cup organic catsup
  • 2 tsp organic mustard
  • Dash hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  1. Mix the sauce ingredients above and brush on beef and veggies after skewered.
  2. Brush remaining marinade on kabobs as they cook.
  3. Cook over medium hot grill.

Kabobs will cook best when cooked over All-Natural Ono Charcoal as the natural wood smoke helps bring out the full flavors and juices in the meat.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I just wanted to let you guys know I read your article on Fox News.com and got on your site as quickly as I could and ordered about $250 worth of beef, burgers, and hot dogs

WOW, was that the best decision I've made in a while.  Due to bad weather and my ridiculous need to try your burgers, I actually cooked two burgers up inside on the stove (first time I had ever done that), and those were GREAT!  Two days later the weather improved, so the wifey and I grilled out some burgers, and we were both so impressed! 

I don't know if it's a mental thing knowing that the meat is a billion times healthier, and that the cows are treated soooo much more humanely both in life and death, but there was a definite difference in every bite.  Thank you!

Beef FranksTonight is going to be the beef hot dogs, and I can't wait!  Thank you for doing what you guys do, both for our health, and our animals!  You now have two more converted members to your family!! 

Oh, and more of those to come...I actually gave two burger patties to a friend for her birthday...they're getting healthier...so I thought it would be a good touch...kinda funny!
