Scott Mendelson - 7 Easy Steps for Healthier Holiday Season 


Happy Thanksgiving John,      
  
We are grateful for you.  Our passion is sustainably raising healthy animals and then providing you with high quality grass-fed, wild-caught, and pasture raised meats.  Because you trust us with your business we get the chance to do this every day. We do not take that for granted.  To express our gratitude we are extending a Special 15% Storewide Discount Code through the end of the day, Monday November 28th.  Just enter the code "THANKS" in your cart when you place your order.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your families.
 
The current Thanksgiving meal looks very different from the first one at Plymouth colony in the Fall of 1621.  The meals for the earliest celebrations would have most likely included wild fowl like duck, goose, and turkey, as well as other wild meats like venison and rabbit, and for those near the coasts maybe even wild seafood.   

If you are still looking for a turkey recipe for tomorrow then check out Russ Crandall's Perfect Smoked Turkey recipe in our Recipe Corner.  There is a little bit of preparation involved but it promises to be worth the effort.   

For many of us the holiday season is a time of body fat accumulation and muscle wasting.  This week Scott Mendelson provides seven steps you can start tomorrow to avoid the extra holiday pounds this year, and still enjoy your Thanksgiving feast.

Athlete's Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A
Dr. Serrano and Scott~ What can we do as a family to avoid packing on the holiday pounds while still enjoying some holiday meals?   Last year I gained 14 pounds of body fat from November 1 to January 1.  I fought very hard to get rid of the body fat this year and do not want to relapse!  ~ Michael, Chicago IL 
 
Michael- We can implement the right strategies to prevent body fat accumulation while spiking metabolism.   The right Cheat Meal Strategies must be in place to prevent disaster during the holidays which in my opinion start with Halloween.  Leftover candy, cold weather, holiday meals, busy work schedules and more can make bad food choices pile up quickly.  Do not let the last 6-8 weeks of the year destroy months of hard work!   

Customer Feedback
beef patties

"Fattiest cut of grass fed grass finish beef that I've found anywhere online or otherwise. Tastes amazing! Perfect fat-protein ratio for my ketogenic lifestyle. I can't go back to conventional meats anymore. The taste and smell is so damn good!"

If you're still trying to decide how to prepare your Thanksgiving turkey, you won't be disappointed with this recipe from Russ Crandall of The Domestic Man. It's slightly more labor intensive than just sticking your bird in the oven, but its delicious flavors are definitely worth it!

Happy cattle grazing into the setting November sun.  Cattle foraging as much as possible as they instinctively prepare for the colder days ahead.   

Last good grazing days in the 2016 season are winding down in North Missouri.  Mother Nature usually changes the landscape after December 6th.  
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.
