Happy Father's Day! There are approximately 70 million fathers in the U.S. Like moms, dads make a difference in the lives of children everday! On a historical note, Father's Day was inspired by moms. According to History.com, Ann Reeves Jarvis is credited with organizing the first Mother's Day celebration during a post-Civil War campaign to reunite war-torn families and communities. Her efforts, in the 1860's and later the continued support of her daughter led to a day dedicated to moms clear back in 1914. The first statewide event honoring fathers was held in 1910, due to the work of Sonora Smart Dodd. It took a bit longer to catch on as it wasn't recognized as a national holiday until much later in 1972. Today, fathers have their special day on the third Sunday of June.
We hope you're able to celebrate with dad this weekend. Nothing says celebration like a loaded grill. If dad is at the grill this weekend, then rest assured there will be plenty of good food for everyone. If you're the grill master this weekend, here's some helpful tips for grilling grass-fed, grass-finished meats.
If you've waited to get dad something special, consider an e-Gift card from US Wellness. Dad will love the option of ordering a bundle of grass-fed steaks, roasts, chops, sausages, or his choice of over 350 all-natural foods. These are available in a variety of denominations and it's never too late to send. Order now and they arrive seconds later in dad's email box.
Product Feature | 15 Keto Recipes: Hamburgers & Beyond
In the world of keto, the fewer carbs, the better. Most people are aiming for between 20g and 50g a day, so you have to be very careful about what you choose to eat. Without anything added, ground beef is completely keto-friendly. This means that ground beef’s natural carbohydrate count is 0g. That’s standard across all-natural meats, including chicken, turkey, pork, etc. It gets tricky when you start to look at recipes that use ground beef. Lots of common ground beef recipes have high carbohydrate counts. See our Discover Blog for Hamburgers & Beyond Keto Recipes.
