Dear John,    

Our apologies for delayed delivery after power failure associated with torrential rains overnight created another round of flash floods in the continuing rain drama afflicting Northeast Missouri. 

The large French ribeye steak continues to win friends nation wide.  Let them rest for several minutes after pulling from the grill to let the goodness of the bone spread its magic into the steak.

Interested in learning how grass meats are produced, how soil is created, and how grasslands are one of the best storage reservoirs on the plants?  We kindly invite you to the the 2015 Grassfed Exchange Conference which will be held in Mt. Pleasant, MI September 16 through September 18.  Day 1 is dedicated to hands on tours with Day 2 and 3 complimented with an impressive speaker list and a 100% sold out trade show. The theme is "Generations of Opportunity. Sun and Water, Sons and Daughters."  Register here before July 31st and save $20.

My personal 11 year old lab collie cross Buck,  is a huge fan of US Wellness large dog bones; especially, the smoked knuckle bones  on sale this week.  It is amazing  how he can work this large  bone for several days, and end with just a small amount of hard bone at the center of the joint.  The local vet comments on how good bones are for teeth and gums via chewing action.  Not to mention the minerals extracted.  Buck's ability to run and play are atypical for a dog of his age and size.

Walking an extra two minutes each hour may offset
hazards of sitting too long

Source:  University of Utah Health Sciences    
A new study suggests that engaging in low intensity activities such as standing may not be enough to offset the health hazards of s
itting for long periods of time. On the bright side, adding two minutes of walking each hour to your routine just might do the trick. These findings were published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN).

Numerous studies have shown that sitting for extended periods of time each day leads to increased risk for early death, as well as heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. Considering that 80 percent of Americans fall short of completing the recommended amount of exercise, 2.5 hours of moderate activity each week ...

Shrimp Carbonara "Pasta"

An easy pasta on a sweet potato noodle base

Author: Wellness Mama

  •     3-4 medium sweet potatoes
  •     1 pound wild-caught shrimp
  •     4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  •     6 slices of bacon
  •     1 cup of peas or chopped asparagus spears
  •     cup parmesan cheese (optional)
  •     cup heavy cream or coconut milk
  •     1 onion

Spices to taste: I used 1 tsp each garlic powder, Italian Seasoning, Salt and Pepper



  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and using a peeler or food processor that can julienne (if you have one) thinly slice it into thin, noodle-like strips. This will take a while with a peeler, but is a good job for an older child to help with. Once all the sweet potatoes are peeled, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter or coconut oil in a large skillet and add the sweet potato "noodles." Sprinkle lightly with sea salt or Himalayan Salt.
  2. Cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring constantly, until noodles are starting to get tender but are not mushy yet. Remove from pan. Add the bacon and cook until crispy. Remove from pan and add onion, peas/asparagus and the remaining tablespoon of butter or oil if needed. Cook 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent and peas are bright green and tender. Add the shrimp (tails and skins removed) and saute another 5-6 minutes until shrimp is cooked (less time if shrimp is pre-cooked). Add the parmesan and cream/coconut milk and desired spices to taste. Stir 1-2 minutes to thicken. (can completely omit the parmesan and cream/coconut milk if you don't want a creamy pasta and prefer a stir-fry type taste)

Serve by topping the sweet potato noodles with the shrimp sauce and crumbled bacon.   Enjoy!
