We've been discussing some St. Patrick's Day traditions. While the potato famine brought nearly 1 million Irish immigrants to the shores of the U.S. in the mid-1800's, many of the traditions developed here. Corned Beef and cabbage have become traditional St. Patrick's Day fare, but this came from necessity. In Ireland, people primarily ate ham and cabbage. Immigrants in America found it much more affordable to buy leftover rations from ships sailing into port. These were heavily salted for long journeys and required them to boil the meat multiple times to remove the brine and make it more appealing. This is also where the term "corned" beef comes from. It has nothing to do with corn. It was the large corn sized rock salt used to preserve the beef on sea voyages. Most corned beef recipes today include nitrates as a preservative. That's what gives the meat a pinkish color. Since there is concern regarding the health effects of nitrates, US Wellness corned beef has a special all-natural recipe brine that is nitrate/nitrite free. Our clean recipe has the following ingredients: beef, water, sea salt, garlic powder, nutmeg, coriander, citric acid, natural spices (clove, cinnamon, allspice).

Sacred Cow | Film & Book By Diana Rodgers and Robb Wolf
Today, there are competing interests between natural food and factory or lab produced processed food-like substances. Big money players are promoting ultra-processed fake foods and continue to spend a fortune trying to convince the public that it's the next big thing to solve the world’s problems. Our friends Diana Rodgers and Robb Wolf have produced a fantastic new film, Sacred Cow: The Case For Better Meat along with a companion book. For years there has been a persistent debate over the future of the food system. In this eye opening video Diana and Robb dig into the big questions surrounding the debate.
