All Fats Are Not Created Equally
Fats are an important part of a healthy diet, but when comparing fats for cooking and consumption, remember: all fats are not created equal. Conjugated Linoleic Acid or (CLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid (naturally occurring trans fat) found primarily in Beef and Dairy. Studies have shown these fats may provide a whole host of health benefits. These are very different from the trans fats found in manufactured hydrogenated vegetable oils which have been linked to inflammation, cardiovascular disease, and obesity.
Why is this important? The concentration of CLA present depends on what the animals eat. By most estimates, grass-fed and grass-finished beef and dairy can be 300-500% richer in CLA than grain-fed animals. That's significant! This is primarily because grass is what nature intended as a diet for cattle. Grass-fed and finished animals also tend to be happier, and healthier and have not been compromised by antibiotics, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or GMOs. Our farms are dedicated to preserving a legacy of good stewardship and care for our animals, land, and ultimately the food we offer at USWellnessMeats.com.
This week, fitness expert Scott Mendelson shares some tips for Rapid Fat Loss to get ready for summer vacations.

As more and more people are discovering the many health and nutritional benefits of grass-fed beef and other grass-fed and pastured meats, the demand is growing rapidly. Unfortunately, the costs involved in maintaining farms and small businesses — pasture lands, fuel, shipping, etc. — are also rising dramatically. We work hard to keep our prices reasonable and affordable for everyone and are happy to share some of our best money-saving suggestions with you.

Lifestyle Feature | Eat More Meat to Live Longer & Healthier
Whether the message comes from the government, the media, environmental organizations, or mainstream medicine, it is hard to miss the constant directives to “Eat Less Meat!”
Instead of nutrient-dense, deeply nourishing animal foods, you are told to fill your plate with highly-processed plant proteins and nutrient-poor (and anti-nutrient rich!) vegetables. Factories are even making plant burgers that “bleed”, thanks to a genetically engineered compound, called leghemoglobin.
As we age, protein becomes even more vital, as it is directly related to the quality of life and health. Learn why this macronutrient is foundational.
