If you are not already concerned about the amount of time your children may be spending with their electronics, our Recent Health News article discusses a study that links early in the day light exposure to weight gain.

Last call for the Paleo-Primal-Price Foundation inaugural event November 21-22 in Southbridge, MA.  We think the agenda is a surgical strike to the heart of health and wellness. The event combines paleo, primal and Price principles in democratic harmony with the abundance from healthy soil, robust streams, ocean life, and vibrant consumers.  Last minute registration here!

Artificial Light Exposure
Light Exposure Linked to Weight Gain in Children

Source:  Queensland University of Technology

Summary:  A world-first study has revealed pre-schoolers exposed to more light earlier in day tend to weigh more.   She says the research suggests light exposure, artificial and natural, needs to be part of the conversation about the weight of children, along with calorie intake, decreased physical activity and sleep patterns.  

Customer Feedback
Kid enjoying US Wellness Beef Jerky!
We Agree ____

"Awesome Ingredients"   

I know of no where else you can get jerky with only two ingredients.  Almost impossible even to find one without sugar.  I love this and the other sugar/free jerky (I've had spicy and medium too--all very good.)

Sugarless Cranberry Sauce
Sugarless Cranberry Sauce    
Author: Wellness Mama

Prep Time:  15 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Serves 8

Ingredients for Filling:
  • 2 bags of fresh cranberries (they are usually 12 ounce bags)
  • cup pineapple juice or orange juice (I recommend pineapple!)
  • cup of applesauce (no sugar added)
  • cup of water
  • juice and zest of one orange
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of honey or to taste (optional)
  1. Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce pan and and bring to a boil.
  2. Keep on medium heat, stirring constantly until the cranberries start to explode (about 10-15 minutes).
  3. Reduce to a simmer and pour the juice and zest over the cranberry mixture.
  4. Simmer 10-15 minutes and remove from heat.
  5. Cool completely and store in fridge at least 4 hours but preferably overnight before serving.
NOTE: This is not as sweet as store versions! Taste at the end of cooking. It is naturally sweet from the fruit juice and applesauce but you can add more honey or stevia to taste if needed.
