Dear John,

With a stroke of good luck,  Father's Day coincides with the Summer Solstice on June 21 at 12:38 EDT.  We wish the father's of the world a very sunny Father's Day. 

They say that good things come in small packages...Maureen Quinn might say that about the US Wellness Meat shipments that she gets as she's training. We definitely say that about her! Featherweight competitor, Maureen will be representing US Wellness Meats in the United States Strongman National Championships next weekend. We are very excited to have her on board with the US Wellness Meats team, and wish her the best of luck as she competes for a National Championship!  Blog Link

Ms. Quinn had a major boost in strength when she cleaned up her diet, and jumped into the grass-fed world of many new food choices.  Organ sausages, burgers, raw cheese, butter, pemmican, tallow, and beef cheek meat quickly elevated Ms. Quinn to #6 in the USA in the under 120 pounds class.

Ms. Quinn's success ties into Kelley Herring's article below about the importance of removing gluten from the diet for those who do not suffer noticeably from gluten consumption.  Dr. Sears has a great primer on using smart diet choices to wage war on cancer cells that are very simple and non- invasive. 

For the salad connoisseurs, please scroll below to a unique combination of duck breasts and pork bacon ends.  This simple to prepare recipe would be a great served while the NY Strips are simmering on the grill!  On a serious note, be sure and read the last thread on the recipe regarding recipe author Russ Crandall's recent rank upgrade in the US Navy.  Master Chief Cryptologic Technician Interpretive Crandall is the Mt. Everest in his field of endeavor.  We are honored to call him a friend of the company, and sleep better at night knowing MC Crandall is protecting freedom with his unique language skills.

A Nutty Approach to Beating Cancer


 By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


Are you getting enough omega-3 essential fatty acids? Probably not ... but you should be.

Most people don't know that omega-3s are necessary for almost every part of your body to function properly - including your heart, lungs, nerves, joints, eyes and brain.

And as I've told my patients for years, omega-3s are also effective at keeping cancer away.

That's not something you'll ever hear from your doctor.  




Editors Note:  Dr. Al Sears, M.D. is a board-certified clinical nutrition specialist. His practice, Dr. Sears' Health & Wellness Center in Royal Palm Beach, Fla., specializes in alternative medicine. He is the author of seven books in the fields of alternative medicine, anti-aging, and nutritional supplementation, including The Doctor's Heart Cure. To get his free special report on the proven anti-aging strategies for building a vibrant, disease-free life, go here now. You'll learn how to stop Father Time without giving up the foods you love.

How Gluten Promotes Chronic Disease (Even if You are Not Gluten Sensitive)

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



If you are a student of health and nutrition, then you've certainly heard a lot about the benefits of a gluten-free diet over the last several years. In fact, there is a good chance that you have made the choice to eliminate grains and gluten from your own diet.

But you're probably also familiar with the backlash against this way of eating from a few vocal bloggers, journalists, doctors and possibly even your own friends and family. I recently came across an article in Time, with the title, "Eat More Gluten, The Fad Must Die." The same day, I received an email with the subject line, "99% of People Should Stop Eating Gluten Free."

Eating Fish, Chicken, and Nuts May Lower Risk Of Alzheimer's Disease 

Source: American Academy of Neurology  sockey salmon filet small


A new study suggests that eating foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, chicken, salad dressing and nuts, may be associated with lower blood levels of a protein related to Alzheimer's disease and memory problems. 

"While it's not easy to measure the level of beta-amyloid deposits in the brain in this type of study, it is relatively easy to measure the levels of beta-amyloid in the blood, which, to a certain degree, relates to the level in the brain," said study author Nikolaos Scarmeas, MD, MS, with Columbia University Medical Center in New York and a member of the American Academy of Neurology.

For the study, 1,219 people older than age 65, free of dementia, provided information about their diet for an average of 1.2 years before their blood was tested for the beta-amyloid. Researchers looked specifically at 10 nutrients, including saturated fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, mono-unsaturated fatty acid, vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin B12, folate and vitamin D.

The study found that the more omega-3 fatty acids a person took in, the lower their blood beta-amyloid levels. Consuming one gram of omega-3 per day (equal to approximately half a fillet of salmon per week) more than the average omega-3 consumed by people in the study is associated with 20 to 30 percent lower blood beta-amyloid levels.

Other nutrients were not associated with plasma beta-amyloid levels. The results stayed the same after adjusting for age, education, gender, ethnicity, amount of calories consumed and whether a participant had the APOE gene, a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.

"Determining through further research whether omega-3 fatty acids or other nutrients relate to spinal fluid or brain beta-amyloid levels or levels of other Alzheimer's disease related proteins can strengthen our confidence on beneficial effects of parts of our diet in preventing dementia," said Scarmeas.

Advanced Nutrition and Training Strategies to Improve Definition and Show Off a Six Pack 


By:  Scott Mendelson



I need to lose 10-15 more pounds of body fat for overall definition to improve and to show a six pack.  I am getting bored with my diet which in the past has taken me off course.  My training sessions are 90 minutes- is that too long? What advanced nutrition and training strategies do you suggest so I can reach these goals before the peak of Summer?  Jeff


Great question, as you get leaner the nutrition and training strategies become more important to break into very low levels of body fat.  Many very successful people are highly regimented with their nutrition and training plans, but this begins to work against them over time as the methods get stale.  Dr. Serrano and I discuss advanced nutrition techniques during a recent video that you can see on the Blog along with several powerful nutrition tactics.

Apple, Bacon, and Duck Breast Salad


Author: Domestic Man

Basic Vinaigrette:  
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 dashes salt, more to taste

 Additional Ingredients:  


  1. Combine the vinaigrette ingredients and stir until well-mixed, then set aside. Score the duck's fat in a crisscross pattern, being careful not to pierce the meat. Season the duck breasts with salt and pepper, then set aside. Cook the bacon until crispy, about 8 minutes, then set aside to drain on paper towels.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the duck breasts skin-side-down in a cold skillet, then turn the heat on to med/high. Sauté until the skin is crispy and golden, about 10 minutes, reducing heat as needed to prevent splattering. Flip and sear for one more minute, then transfer the skillet and breasts to the oven and roast until cooked to your liking, about 4 minutes for medium and 7 minutes for medium-well (see note below about doneness). Remove from the oven and skillet, and set aside to rest while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  3. Re-stir the vinaigrette then toss it with the lettuce. Divide the lettuce into four bowls then divide the bacon and apple sliced into the bowls. Thinly slice the duck breasts then distribute the breast pieces onto the salads, then serve.

       **  The USDA recommends cooking duck to 165F (medium-well), but      about 145F (medium) yields a better texture and more tender meat. Your call! 

       **  Feel free to add any other salad ingredients you'd like: grapes, dried cranberries, walnuts, carrots. Sky's the limit.  

Serves: 4


Time:  30 minutes 


Difficulty: Easy 


Mr. Russ Crandall, aka The Domestic Man, has created a super paleo whole30 salad above with an ingenious mix of duck breasts, bacon ends and apples.  We suggest you explore Russ's most recent recipe additions here.   Many more Domestic Man recipes can be discovered in The Ancestral Table.
