U.S. Wellness September 2006 Newsletter
September 30, 2006

Dear John,

Thank you for your support during the first 3 quarters of 2006. The farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats sincerely appreciate the patronage demonstrated in 2006. With your support we have been able to branch into raw Amish cheese, raw goat cheese, neutraceuticals, delmonico steaks, minute steaks, lamb marrow bones, lamb nutrient rich tallow, rodeo rise and shine breakfast sausage, beef/pork franks, natural beef tallow enriched soaps and new burger fabrication technology which should eliminate any bone chips in the future.

We are proud to announce the edition of grass-fed free range goat and tri tip roasts in a 1.5 pound format to cover requests for smaller roasts and place the popular West Coast trendy roast in the store. Thank you for making these requests, we really do listen to our customers.

Lastly, we give thanks to mother nature for August rains which gave our pastures a much needed drink after one of the warmest and driest May, June and July’s on record in Northeast Missouri.

Again, your patronage is sincerely appreciated as we strive to be the best.

Best regards,

John, Nan, Lee Ann & Julie on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats.

    Inventory Highlights - Grass-fed Goat Introduced
    NY strip small

    We are excited to note the inclusion of 11 cuts of grass-fed goat plus liver, heart and rocky mountain oysters. Goat is a very lean meat with the same health properties as grass-fed beef, lamb and biso n. However, if you are looking for lean meat the grass- fed goat is very low fat and rivals our gourmet rabbit.

    We apologize for supply issues 10 days ago leaving voids in 87% burger, 6 ounce filets, London broils, large top sirloin, beef liver, Italian beef sausage and ribeye primal. All items are restocked with only the large top sirloin in critical low status. We intend to have sirloin tips restocked by mid October at the latest.

    Several beef cuts could experience short term shortages as demand continues to surge.

    On the horizon, look for USDA certified organic shrimp to appear by mid October. The farm families sampled both pre-cooked and raw shrimp and it was off the chart for taste and texture. The pre-cooked shrimp was so good direct from the package, no dipping sauce was necessary.

    Strongmen Corner
    Jesse Marunde

    Good news and bad news form Met-Rx Strongest Man Contest completed in China in mid September. For the first time since the early 80's an American came away with the victory. Phil Phister age 35 from Pennsylvania took the honors. Jesse Marunde put up a valiant fight but was hindered with a muscle injury that progressed in severity from event to event. Knowing Jesse, he will come back like a true champion and compete for the top spot on 2007. The contest was held on a very scenic beach in SE China near North Vietnam with day time highs in the upper 90's and lower 100's! Again . . . hats off to Jesse for the gallant effort he put forth with a bad "wheel".

    Protect You and Your Family from E. Coli
    Lemon &Ginger GF

    According to the CDC, an estimated 73,000 cases of E. coli infection and 61 deaths occur in the United States each year. What can we do to protect ourselves? Incorporate more friendly bacteria into our diets. Having a healthy population of beneficial microorganisms in our gut have many benefits, which includes protection from harmful bacteria. Also known as probiotics which can be obtained not only through supplements but also a variety of specific foods.

    There are many beneficial probiotic foods and supplements and today we will focus on Grainfield's Wholegrain Liquid and Lemon and Ginger. These refreshing effervescent liquids are an active source of friendly lactobacillus bacteria, a natural source of vitamins, amino acids and enzymes. These high quality probiotic liquids are fermented to achieve high, active levels of probiotic bacteria sustained in a ready, liquid medium immediately available for use within the digestive system.

    These liquids can also be used to make your own fermented or cultured foods. A quick and simple recipe would be to fill up a Ball canning jar with organic baby carrots. Then add Lemon and Ginger to the top of the jar, close the lid and let set on the counter for five days. You now have some tasty fermented baby carrots. You can munch on these healthy snacks and also drink the liquid to get double benefits.

    If you would like to learn more about these powerful healthy, friendly, life-supporting bacteria, please review the following article, probiotic faq. We will continue this series on probiotics each month, which will include a variety of articles on probiotic foods and supplements, recipes, benefits, and the latest news. Please join us in building healthier lives.

    What's Up Doc - by: Dr. Al Sears, MD
    Dr. Al Sears

    U.S. Wellness Meats is pleased to feature Dr. Al Sears and his intriguing book, The Doctor's Heart Cure. Today Dr. Sears discusses
    Beat the “National Eating Disorder” .

    Americans jump from one diet trend to the next – whether it vilifies a nutrient category like fat or deifies a single food as the savior. But just where has obsession with healthy eating gotten us? Obesity has continued to rise now affecting one in five Americans. And incredibly, over 60% of American adults are now overweight.1

    Somehow, what I call our “national eating disorder” has turned us into the fattest people in history. We’ve also seen an explosion of other diet- related problems. And, so many of my new patients just can't figure out why they’re so tired.

    Americans want so badly to be healthy, but they're clearly missing out on something when it comes to what to eat.

    Minimum Purchase Reminder

    Our new format enacted in April 2005 requires a $75 minimum purchase and a 7 pound minimum combined purchase of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese, single piece poultry, and butter.

    The issue is the bulk chicken and ten pound cheese bundles originate from separate cold storage centers where those products are produced. It is not efficient to ship one package of beef as a stand alone item when the balance of the order originates 400 miles away.

    The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if you are under the 7 pound limit for a combination of beef, lamb, pork, raw cheese and butter purchases. Red font will appear under the shopping cart if you are under the minimum price or pound requirements
