Dear John,
"A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take." ~Cardinal Mermillod

Mothers hold a special place in our lives and hearts.  To all moms reading this, we wish you a very special Mother's Day. 

In Northeast Missouri the spring phlox are usually in full bloom for Mother's Day, and will equal any bouquet purchased from a local florist.  It is always a sad reminder of how many farmsteads that have disappeared in rural America. The perennial flowers are the only reminders of farmsteads past, and those Mothers' who produced the greatest generation that American will honor in two weeks.

This will be the last red letter promo code before Memorial Day weekend.  If you need, burgers, steaks, kabobs, franks, chicken or chops, now is a great time to stock up and save 15%.  Fed Ex will be closed on Monday, May 25th.

Cook Like A Caveman


 By: Dr. Al Sears, MD


I've been talking to my patients a lot recently about my new nutritional pyramid. At the base is what I call primal nutrition, and it's all about the diet our species evolved to eat.

Of course, I'm not suggesting we go back to living in the Stone Age. You don't have to go around spearing woolly mammoths in the middle of Chicago.

But we can go back to getting the basic amounts of protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants our ancient ancestors got before farming came along. After the Agricultural Revolution, our diets became based on low-protein, low-fat and low-nutrient foods.

And that's when human health started to decline...  




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.

Flavor Your Meals With These Low-Carb Paleo Sauces

By: Kelley Herring, Healing Gourmet 



If you've been eating a Paleo diet for some time, you may find that your usual meal rotations of meat and vegetables can become... well, a little boring.

But there's a fast and easy way to dress up all of your favorite meals without much extra effort: Sauces.

As you probably know, most store-bought sauces and dressings should be avoided. These usually contain corn syrup or other hidden sugars, as well as unhealthy fats and oils (ie. Corn, soybean, vegetable oils, etc.). Of course, many folks shy away from making sauces at home. They think sauce-making is complicated, time-consuming and best left to classically-trained chefs.

But the truth is there are many simple sauces you can whip up in less than five minutes that will add extraordinary flavor, healthy fats and nutrients to all of your favorite standbys.

Today I'm going to share five Paleo-friendly, low-glycemic, no-cook sauces that will transform your everyday meals into restaurant-quality creations:

Threats to Soil Productivity Threaten Food Security

Lead Author: 
Donald L. Sparks


In a review of recent scientific literature, the article, titled "Soil and Human Security in the 21st Century," outlines threats to soil productivity -- and, in turn, food production -- due to soil erosion, nutrient exhaustion, urbanization and climate change.

"Soil is our planet's epidermis," said Sparks, echoing the opening line of the article. "It's only about a meter thick, on average, but it plays an absolutely crucial life-support role that we often take for granted."

Specialized Shoulder Development and Rapid Fat Loss for Summer         


By: Scott Mendelson



I need to lose 20 pounds of body fat ASAP.  I know this cannot be done overnight, but the sooner the better.  My shoulders have never responded well to training.  What program would you suggest?  My wife is scared of weight training because she thinks she will gain a lot of muscle.  What can I tell her to deal with that concern?  Terry Madison - WI.


The 8-8-8 specialized shoulder training routine is great for body fat loss and improving shoulder development.  The routine is short, yet highly intense which is great for increasing fat burning hormones.  I suggest you perform this routine at the start of your arm training

Gas-Grilled Beef Back Ribs




  1. Combine all the dry ingredients, then take a pretty picture of the dry rub to show your friends
  2. Sprinkle the dry rub over both sides of the ribs and let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes
  3. As the ribs are hanging out, take a large handful of mesquite wood chips and soak them in water for 30 minutes
  4. To get a good amount of smoke going, add the soaked chips to a smoker box and place the box under the grill grates on one side of the grill (directly under a burner)
  5. Preheat your grill for about 10 minutes, then leave only the burner under the smoke box running
  6. Place the ribs on the opposite end of the smoker box (the cool side of the grill) and cover
  7. Adjust the burner's intensity to get a grill temperature of as close to 265 degrees as possible
  8. Grill the ribs using this indirect method for three hours, or until the rib's internal temperature reaches 180 degrees
  9. After three hours, the ribs should look slightly crispy on the outside and most of the fat should have cooked off the meat
  10. Turn the burners up to medium heat and grill the ribs on direct heat for a couple minutes, to burn off the remaining fat.......this should only take a few moments once the heat is going
  11. Brush on some barbecue sauce and remove the ribs from the grill
  12. Slice the ribs into singles using some kitchen shears and enjoy


Mr. Russ Crandall, aka The Domestic Man had much fun perfecting several US Wellness back rib recipes.  We suggest you explore additional back rib manifestos in the link above.   Many more Domestic Man recipes can be discovered in The Ancestral Table.

  • 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.
