Paleo-Approved Thanksgiving Recipes ~
Steps to Avoid Heart Disease

Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,    


We have had a busy week here catching up from another successful Weston A. Price Conference.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to sample organ sausages, snack sticks and jerky!  This is one of our favorite conferences - we always learn so much and it is always a pleasure meeting new friends and customers.  For a full conference report visit our  blog, and for more pictures and feedback, visit us on Facebook.


We would like to wish all of our readers and customers a happy early Thanksgiving!  Here at US Wellness we are truly thankful for being able to serve you for another year and are proud to be your source for quality proteins year round.  We wish everyone reading a blessed and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend.


Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our shipping schedule will be disrupted this week.  We will not ship on Wednesday, since FedEx cannot deliver on Thanksgiving.  We will only ship Monday and Tuesday this week, so if you need an order to ship please have your order in by 10:00 am CST on Tuesday, November 22.  


If you are still wondering what to serve this week, our friends at the Primal Palate have put together an amazing menu of Thanksgiving favorites from the main course to dessert - all paleo approved!  Fore more amazing recipe ideas and mouth-watering photos add the Make It Paleo cookbook to your next order.  Check out our recipe section below for a turkey and stuffing recipe that Hayley & Bill enjoyed a few weeks ago!


Northwestern University Feinburg School of Medicine has released an alarming new report, indicating the heart disease epidemic is not only getting worse, but is now attacking people at much younger ages.  Our youth are at a much higher risk of facing early death because of heart disease, due to a number of symptoms that are all very avoidable with a healthy diet and lifestyle:  

  • Terrible Diets
  • High Blood Sugar
  • Overweight or Obese
  • Low Physical Activity
  • High Cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Blood Pressure

For more details on this study read the full report here.  A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids and low in processed foods, sugar and salt would help alleviate most of the problems.  Following a paleo lifestyle wouldn't be a bad idea either as they promote physical activity and improving sleep quality.     


One of our unique steak cuts is on sale this week - the Flat Irons are a great buy for the price.  If you haven't tried one yet we highly recommend this coffee marinated recipe


US Wellness has been very proud to work with Paleo Magazine on their Fueling the Fire project, which is sending paleo care packages to troops stationed overseas.  We are huge supporters of our military and making sure they have access to clean food sources is very important to us.  For more information and details on how to get involved visit Fueling the Fire


Once again we wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving week and we truly appreciate your continued patronage and support. 


Happy Thanksgiving, 

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

Question and Answer Column

Dr. Eric Serrano


Hello Dr. Serrano,    


What did you mean by the amino acids MS and MR?  I would like to get clarification on the cellulite portion of last answer.   






Dear Susan,


My apologies, what I meant was Muscle Synthesis, which is a formula based on the ratio of amino acids for optimal lean body mass gain and fat loss.  MR 100 means a 100% muscle recovery before a workout.  This formula prevents muscle breakdown.

Basically they work together to gain muscle and lose fat, and they are on the simplest form your body needs so it is easily absorbed without causing stomach upset or digestive problems. 

Thank You,   


Dr. Serrano

The Primal Palate's Thanksgiving
Turkey & Stuffing

We wanted to feature a turkey recipe for those of you still wondering how you are going to attack the bird on Thanksgiving.  Recipe and photo courtesy of our friends at the Primal Palate.  Find more paleo-friendly recipes in their new cookbook - Make It Paleo!

Thanksgiving Turkey Stuffing Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground pork  
  • 1 onion, chopped  
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped  
  • 2 packs of button mushrooms, chopped  
  • 1 cup celery, chopped  
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic, minced  
  • 2 tablespoons each, rosemary, thyme, and sage, minced  
  • Salt and pepper to taste  
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper  
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp each, fennel seeds, anise, and paprika  
  • NOTE: Adjust stuffing measurements accordingly depending on amount of people being served. This stuffing filled a 16 lb turkey, as well as a 5 qt braising pan.   
Stuffing Directions:
  1. Heat coconut oil in a large skillet on medium heat.  
  2. Place bell pepper, mushrooms, and celery into skillet and saute.  
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground pork, onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage, fennel seeds, anise, paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  
  4. Add ground pork mixture to skillet, and cook until pork is browned slightly.  
  5. Remove from heat, and discard any liquid in the pan.  

Ingredients for Turkey:
  • 1 pastured turkey
  • Duck fat
  • Salt and pepper 
To prep, stuff and cook the turkey:
  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Place turkey in a roasting pan.
  • Season turkey with salt and pepper, including the body cavity.
  • Stuff turkey with pork stuffing.
  • Place any remaining stuffing into a baking dish, cover and place in the fridge.
  • Rub turkey with duck fat.
  • Tuck wings under the breast, and tie the legs together with kitchen twine.
  • Tent turkey with aluminum foil, and place in the oven.
  • Roast turkey 20 minutes per pound at 325 degrees, this will be about 5 hours for a 16 lb turkey.
  • Place outside stuffing in the oven, uncovered for the last 20-30 minutes of cooking, or until the stuffing is crispy on the tops, and the pork is cooked through.  
Simple Thanksgiving Gravy Recipe:
  • Pour all turkey drippings and scraps from the bottom of the roasting pan into a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until smooth and pour into a gravy boat.

Customer Feedback
I just had a US Wellness ground lamb burger for lunch, and it was so amazing that I needed to make sure I stocked up! I am such a huge fan of your company, and only buy my meats/cheeses/etc from you. I'm looking forward to your beef bone broth to be back in stock!

You guys are absolutely wonderful- from your customer service, to your efficient delivery, to the products themselves. I've only had great experiences shopping with you, and that's saying a lot considering how so many companies today are incompetent.
