Brilliant Omega 6:3 Clip in 2nd Paragraph
Recent US Dietary Guidelines Called Into Question

Cajun Gumbolaya Recipe from Wellness Mama 

October 4, 2015 
Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,    
Rolling the clock back 10,000 years ago we have to admire the tenacity of our paleo ancestors in their quest for survival. It was a daily ritual to hunt for meat, fruits, roots, and vegetables prior to the dawn of agriculture 10,000 years ago.  Can you imagine the challenges they endured and what we take for granted when we open a package of sugar free pork bacon.

The Paleo Category is a very active section of the US Wellness website.  The Paleo Diet in our opinion is one of the most enthusiastic trends in the food industry in the past ten years.  The paleo success stories just keep on rolling as more consumers understand the health virtues of this diet. Prior to 1900, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease created a fraction of the havoc we see today.  Click here for a brilliant 15 minute clip produced by our friends at Vital Choice on why the proper balance of omega 3 to omega 6 is so critical to the discussion above.

As September comes to a close and we say goodbye to summer, many of us will turn to favorite fall recipes to warm us.  In the Recipe Corner this week, we feature one of our favorites from Katie, the "Wellness Mama".  Take advantage of the sale on Wild Caught Shrimp and this week's restock on pork sausage and give Katie's Cajun Gumbolaya recipe a try. 

In the health article this week, experts call into question the methods used to produce the report that establishes US Dietary Guidelines.  The article's author expresses her concern that the report has been influenced from outside agendas and commercial interests.  And believe it or not, Congress also agrees with a special hearing on the report this month.

Latest US Dietary Guidelines
Called Into Question 

BMJ (formerly British Medical Journal)
Healthy Eating Image  
The expert report underpinning the latest dietary guidelines for Americans fails to reflect much relevant scientific literature in its reviews of crucial topics and therefore risks giving a misleading picture, an investigation by The BMJ has found.

Concern about the report has prompted the US Congress to schedule a hearing on the guidelines in October, when two cabinet secretaries are scheduled to testify, writes journalist Nina Teicholz in an article published today.

 Customer Feedback

Wild Caught Raw Shrimp M-mmmmmm good shrimp!

Order received in a matter of days, packed very well.  The shrimp are a nice large size and the taste is beyond delicious.  Deveined nicely with only the small tail end as waste.  I have shared my new find "US Wellness Meats" with friends.

Cajun Gumbolaya


Author:  Wellness Mama

Serves: 4-6
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

  • 1-2 pieces of cooked chicken, chopped into pieces
  • 1 lb of sliced sausage (spicy sausage works well)
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled, tails removed(optional)
  • 2-3 bell peppers, color of choice
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 bags frozen cauliflower (defrosted)
  • 1 bag frozen okra (not breaded)
  • Spices of choice (salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, parsley, basil, oregano, etc.)
  • Hot sauce (optional)

  1. In large skillet, cook sliced sausage until browned, remove from pan
  2. Sauté chopped onions, garlic and peppers in skillet until soft, season to taste while cooking.
  3. While onions, garlic and peppers are cooking, put cauliflower into food processor and pulse until it is in small pieces like rice. Can also chop with knife, though this takes longer.
  4. When onion mix is done softening, add can of diced onions, okra and other spices to taste.
  5. Add chicken, sausage, shrimp and cauliflower and simmer another 10-15 minutes until cauliflower is soft and shrimp is cooked. Alternatively, you can cook the cauliflower separately in some butter in another skillet and serve the gumbo over it.
  6. Serve hot (also great cold or reheated for leftovers)

Note: This recipe should not be made in a cast iron skillet, as the acid in the tomatoes takes on a strange flavor from cast iron.
