Dear John, 

Despite the mild weather here in Northeast Missouri, Christmas season is in full swing. And we are here to make your holiday shopping as easy as possible!  Pair a US Wellness gift certificate with one of our best selling cookbooks and give the gift of good health.  Even for the grass-fed cooking newbie, these cookbooks are a great place to start and a handy reference for any kitchen!

One of our most popular items this time of year is the Wild Caught Maine Lobster.  Paired with any of our grass-fed beef steaks, these make an unforgettable surf 'n' turf holiday feast!

We have several restocks this week, many of which would make a great holiday meal centerpiece.  Both of the 6 oz and 9oz tenderloin filets, the 4-rib and 6-rib standing roasts, and our rack of lamb loin roast all restocked just in time for your holiday celebrations. 

Fresh Chilled Beef Orders!!!  Fresh Grass-Fed Beef shipped right to your door!  This never frozen beef product will arrive fresh and cool to the touch.  We have several different packages available, please visit our special fresh chilled blog for more information and answers to all of your fresh beef questions!  Please have your order in by 12:00 noon CST this Friday, December 11th to ensure shipping on Wednesday, December 16th.

The transition to our new building continues.  Tomorrow afternoon at 3:00pm CST we are moving our phone service to the new facility.  Our vendor does not expect any issues so our fingers are crossed that it will be a smooth transition.  If you do experience trouble contacting us by phone, please try again later or email us  We will be here ... we just might not be able to take your call.

Do you want to avoid gaining weight through this month long celebration of rich foods and plentiful drinks?  Read Scott Mendelson's article, and join Carol in getting a jump start on looking great for her Spring beach vacation despite the holiday festivities.

Getting caught up in the craziness of the hustle and bustle this time of year is easy to do.  If you have a minute check out this "Gratitude" video.  It is a great reminder that today is the only day we have and we can make it a good day by the attitude with which we choose to approach it. 

Hoping you are enjoying this holiday season,

Athlete's Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A
Quick Body Weight Sessions to Accelerate Fat Burning and Boost Energy
Scott- I want to get ahead of the fat burning game before this year ends so that I have good habits in place for the New Year.  I need to lose between 15 and 20 pounds of body fat to look good in a bathing suit and my husband is in the same situation.  We have a vacation planned for Key West in Late March and want to look our best!  We both battle low energy at about 6 pm each day which can lead to bad food choices and low productivity.  Our energy levels are very good up until that time and we exercise first thing in the morning.  Ideas? 

I agree with your mindset.  You do not want to wake up January 1 with a ton of regret
and new body fat. Putting off success until the New Year is a failed strategy and ends up
piling on body fat fast especially when many days of poor eating and low activity are strung together.  Take a look at these important strategies for finishing the year strong.  Fat
storing momentum builds quickly during December and can take many weeks or months to reverse...

Honey Bourbon Balsamic Chicken Wings
Author: Allyson Meyler, Reclaiming Yesterday
Difficulty: Moderate
Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 2     
  • 3.5 lbs chicken wings
  • salt & pepper
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 3 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
  1. Remove chicken wings from refrigerator to take off the chill. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Rinse chicken wings and pat dry. Arrange in one layer on a baking sheet, use a metal rack if you prefer crispy chicken wings. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Bake wings for 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
  4. While wings bake, add all ingredients for sauce into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil,
    reduce heat, and allow to simmer until sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 15 minutes) Sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
  5. After 30 minutes of baking, remove chicken wings and transfer to mixing bowl. Pour 3/4 of sauce over wings, using tongs to toss and coat. Return to oven for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer wings to serving dish and drizzle with remaining sauce.

Purchasing Information
Order Minimums
  • All orders must weigh at least 7 pounds in order to ship, to ensure everything stays frozen during transit.
  • $75 minimum purchase requirement, since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of each product.
  • You will never be charged extra for shipping.
  • There is a $7.50 handling fee upon checkout.
  • The South Carolina Chicken Bundles, BBQ Sauce, produce and cookbooks ship from separate locations, so they are not included in the 7 lb weight minimum.  The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if your order is under the 7 lb limit.
