Dear John,
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2011!  We hope everyone had an enjoyable New Year's weekend.  US Wellness Meats is excited for the new year and to the rewards and challenges it will surely bring.  We would like to thank our loyal and dedicated customers for your continued patronage and support, and we look forward to serving you and your health needs in 2011.

With the New Year, comes New Year's resolutions.  We make them every year, and most do not stick.  Getting in better shape is a goal for thousands of Americans every year, and eating healthier is an essential part of that resolution.  The typical American diet is contributing to obesity and heart disease at alarming rates.  However, once people become educated about the dangers of their diet, and learn about grass-fed, nutrient-dense foods and how fat can be good for you, they will not return to their old way of eating.  Our resolution this year is to help as many as possible see the dangers of their dieting ways.  Organizations such as the Weston A. Price Foundation, Underground Wellness and Mark's Daily Apple are great resources for those looking to improve their diet.

If you are new to grass-fed eating and not sure where to start, visit our Best Sellers section online, to see what everyone else is buying.  Our ground beef, beef franks, and snack sticks are all proven favorites your family will enjoy.  One of the best things you can do for your health is to add more organ meats to your diet.  An easy (and tasty!) way to do this is by trying organ sausages.  Our Braunschweiger, Liverwurst and Headcheese are all fully cooked and make a perfect snack with raw, grass-fed cheese.  Try author Stan Fishman's recipe for a Festive Liverloaf for a unique way trick your family into eating organ meats. 

Have you tried our new Whey Protein powder yet? Still have questions?  Visit our blog for serving suggestions, nutrition facts, and to find out why it is so good for you!

US Wellness Trivia Contest! 

We will randomly draw 30 winners who email the correct answer on Sunday, January 2.  Promo codes will be emailed on Monday morning and will be active for 30 days. 

This week's question: "The name January comes from the Roman god Janus.  What was he the god of?"  Please email your answers to blog@grasslandbeef.com.

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests! In the last news alert, we asked: How many inches in diameter was the largest snowflake ever recorded?   The answer was: 15 inches.

Happy Holidays, 

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

Question and Answer Column

Dear Dr. Serrano,

What are your thoughts on superfoods such as pine pollen, bee pollen, colostrum and deer antler velvet extract?

Also, is it safe to take Muscle Synthesis and Muscle Recovery along with Innate Response Multi Food IV?  Also would it be safe to mix colostrum powder with Muscle Synthesis and Muscle Recovery?

Thanks in advance,

Dear George,

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I do believe in some of the superfoods you mention including bee pollen, colostrum, and deer antler velvet extract and yes you can mix them with Muscle Synthesis and Muscle Recovery.  Many years ago I used to say that velvet extract was a myth but a friend of mine showed me research, and when I say research, I mean a lot, and the key to it is to buy from a real company.
Now my question to you is why are you taking all these super foods?  The antler extract is very specific to certain conditions and not for everything, colostrum is just plain awesome and I use it in a protein shake called Get Lean, but make sure is not cooked, and from organic sources like ours, because if it is not then is not worth it. We have our own bee pollen because we have bees at home, and my kids do all the work so go for it if you can get it also. Ours is sweet.  Again colostrum is awesome, so go for it.

Good luck,

Dr. Serrano

Customer Feedback

RibeyesDear U.S. Wellness,

I just got my order today.  I decided to stop eating beef a few years ago after learning how the lipid profile of grain-fed animals are changed due to grain diet.

Consequently, I haven't had any beef for years,  I just had a fabulous steak and I feel like a queen, no make that a king.  Although I don't eat much meat, I was tired of eating organic, free-range chicken and nitrate-free turkey bacon.  I was very happy with the taste of my beef and can't wait to try the cheese.
