Super Burger Recipe

April 19, 2015 
Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,    

Apologies are in order for many who have signed up for re-stock notification since the new system went live January 28th.  A gremlin was finally discovered in the basement of the operating system that was not engaging emails as we entered new inventory.   This software glitch was corrected on April 16th, and will never be an issue again.  A special thank you to those who brought this to our attention.

For the first time in many months, 75% burger is on sale this week. The sale is a bit unique with our new system.  Purchases up through 24 pounds will be discounted 10%.  Purchase of 25 - 39 pounds will be discounted 15%, and purchase of 40+ pounds will be discounted 17.5%. 

During burger grilling season, your flavor assistants are US Wellness all natural BBQ sauce, seasoning salt, and raw Amish cheeses.  For the super creative, much fun can be had with items in the weekly organic produce baskets!

14 oz NY Strips, Italian Breakfast Sliders, Fresh Cut Pork Chops and Whole Rabbits flank the 75% burger on the sale list this week.  Grilling season is off to the races with our first 80 degree plus day in Missouri this past Friday.

Please scroll down and wet your appetite on The Paleo Best Burger in the recipe section below.  Please take time to open the Civilized Caveman link and read an inspiring story of weight loss and near loss of legs on Mr. George Bryant's remarkable military story.  His success along side Juli Bauer in the paleo cooking blog world, has earned NY Times cookbook honors for Paleo Kitchen.

On the way down the page, ladies in the reading audience receive high compliments  in the  men's world of 10K runs.  Many are heeding the advise of too much sitting is very detrimental to longevity.

No Longer A Man's Race

Men might be faster, but women are stronger in numbers in the nation's largest 10-kilometer road running races, according to a Northwestern Medicine® study. 

Researchers analyzed data from more than 400,000 runners who participated in 10 of the largest 10km (6.2 mile) races in the U.S. from as early as 2002 through 2011.

Other findings from the study, the first to analyze performance trends among the nation's 10km runners, include:

    1. The top groups of men and women appear to be getting faster
    2. The fastest men are also increasingly younger
    3. There are more sub-hour finishers, with increasingly more women accomplishing this feat compared to men
    4. An increasing percentage of finishers, however, are completing races in more than one hour

The study was published online in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

"It seems that as these large races have more people participating, we have slower runners, but I see that as a positive thing," said Dan Cushman, M.D., lead author of the study.

"It's not just elite runners or former high school athletes running today's 10km races, there are more everyday people running this distance," Cushman said. "One of the best things we can do to improve our health is exercise and taking on a 10km race is a great goal."

Cushman is a clinical instructor in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and chief resident at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

Ten-kilometer races have become increasingly popular in the U.S. over the past decade with 1.3 million people participating in such races in 2010. Women began outnumbering men in the 2006 and 2007 time frame and today make up the majority of runners who participate in these 10 large 10km races in the U.S., Cushman said.

"Coaches and trainers can use this information to develop more women-specific 10km training programs to accommodate this surge of female middle-distance runners," Cushman said.

Perfect Paleo Burger


For the burgers:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 medium red onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic salt and pepper, to taste

The shoestring parsnip fries:

  • 2 medium parsnips, peeled
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

Garnish with:

  • sliced red onions
  • 3/4 cup Avocado Mousse
  • romaine hearts
  • shoestring parsnip fries (from above


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the burgers without overworking the meat.
  2. Divide meat into 3 equal portions and form into ½-inch (12-mm)-thick patties. Use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of each burger. Set aside.
  3. Using a spiral slicer or julienne slicer, cut the parsnips into strings.
  4. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat, and preheat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  5. Once grill is hot, place the burgers on the grill and close the lid. Cook 6 minutes.
  6. While the burgers are cooking, add the coconut oil to the saucepan. Test the oil by placing one parsnip shoestring in the oil to ensure the oil bubbles. Add the parsnips to the oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown. When the parsnips finish cooking, place them on a paper towel−lined plate to drain.
  7. Flip the burgers and cook for 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Remove the burgers from grill and let rest for 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. To assemble the burgers, place each on a bed of lettuce and top with sliced red onions, ¼ cup (60 mL) avocado mousse, and parsnip fries.
