Omega-3 Rich Wild Caught Salmon
Dear John, 
For those of us who have survived another "Hallows Eve" it is fitting that we consider a topic that has tremendous benefit for your health and may even extend your life.  For the last several years many health experts have been touting the importance of omega-3 fatty acids.  Omega-3 deficiency has been linked to over 60 chronic illnesses.  Our friends at Vital Choice recently posted an inspirational video that beautifully illustrates the importance of omega-3 & omega-6 balance for experiencing a healthy life. 

At US Wellness we have many products to help you increase your intake of essential omega-3s.  Wild caught salmon, shelf stable pouched salmon, sablefish, shrimp, scallops, and halibut are great tasting ways to maximize the healing effects of omega 3s. 

In tribute to the outstanding 'Out of Balance' video, US wellness is featuring the wild caught seafood category this week.  Use the promo code SEAFOOD, and receive 15% off anything in the seafood category through Tuesday November 3rd 12:00 Midnight CST.

 We briefly discussed the Foundation for Nutritional Wisdom two weeks ago in this space.  Due to issues with the Patent & Trademark Office, the name has been changed to Paleo-Primal-Price Foundation or PPP Foundation for brevity.  The mission statement is 'Bringing Real Food Communities Together'. To be a part of inaugural history, take advantage of the early bird special ending Tuesday, November 3rd.  Open here for all information on the first ever gathering on November 21-22, 2015 at the Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center in Southbridge, MA.  Sunday agenda will surprise everyone.

Browser issues have cropped up across the web in the last two weeks with new changes in PCI compliance which is the latest technology to keep hackers at a safe distance.  The following notes will correct some issues that our users encountered in the last ten days:
  • Firefox - using the newest version will eliminate all checkout issues
  • Chrome -using the newest version will eliminate all checkout issues
  • Internet Explorer - requires version 11 or Edge.... version 10 will not work
  • Safari - requires version 7 or newer version ...... there are still some issues on Safari and suggest you call if you are having difficulty so we can place order by phone if necessary

All the changes above are for your protection as the browser industry works to stay ahead of hacking technology.   We have seen many improvements in the last couple of years and this trend will continue.   

 

Whey protein prices have been discounted 15% for the foreseeable future.   

 

As the days continue to shorten, we are reminded to say thank you for a good growing season, and your continued support of our company through sales, word of mouth and the many forms of social media.   

 
Haunted Hallows Eve Best,

Low Fat Diet
Forget the Low-Fat Diet

Source:  Brigham & Women's Hospital

Summary: 

The effectiveness of low-fat diet on weight-loss has been debated for decades, and hundreds of randomized clinical trials aimed at evaluating this issue have been conducted with mixed results. New research finds that low-fat interventions were no more successful than higher-fat interventions in achieving and maintaining weight loss for periods longer than one year.

Salmon with Strawberry Salsa
Grilled Salmon with Strawberry Ginger Salsa 
Author: Eileen Laird 

Ingredients for Salsa:
  • 1 cups diced strawberries
  • cup diced red onion
  • 1 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger  
  • Juice from orange
  • Juice from lemon
     
Ingredients for Salmon: 
  • 1 lb. salmon (cut into 2 pieces)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • sea salt
Directions: 
  1. Make the salsa first: combine strawberries, red onion, grated ginger, orange juice and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir to blend and let flavors combine as the grill preheats.
  2. Preheat gas grill on high for 10 minutes.
  3. Place each piece of salmon, skin-side down, on a piece of tin foil large enough to enclose it in a packet. Sprinkle salmon generously with sea salt and lay lemon slices on top. Wrap it loosely in the foil and then pinch the edges of the foil closed.
  4. Turn grill heat down to medium. Close grill cover, and cook 15 minutes. They're done when the flesh flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Open salmon packets carefully to let the steam escape, and discard the lemon slices.  The salmon skin will stick to the foil, so gently insert a spatula between the salmon and its skin, and transfer to plates.
  6. Serve topped with strawberry salsa.
