Dr Sears- "Coconut Oil~ Is There Anything It Can't Do?!" 

Kelley Herring - Could These Fat-Laden French Foods Boost Your Health?

Recipe Corner - Black Bean BBQ Chili Lasagna 
Dear Atlanta 

This week we ran across this "Mutual Rescue" story and were so touched that we felt compelled to get involved.  

Eric weighed over 300 pounds, had Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and his doctor told him he would be dead in 5 years unless he changed. His nutritionist suggested a dog might help. So Eric went to the Humane Society in Silicon Valley and said he wanted an obese, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common.  What happened next transformed their lives.  

Visit our Facebook page to see Eric & Peety's magical story.  Then if you feel like it enter your local animal shelter in our giveaway and give them a chance to win a $200.00 USWM gift certificate.   

Preparing for the upcoming Easter Holiday?  Our Whole Leg of Lamb is on sale this week.  Also on sale are our Pre-Cooked BBQ Short Ribs and Thai Center Cut Sirloin Butt Steak if you need something easy on hand for house guests.  We also have Beef Tri-Tip Steak and Duck Stock.

We all know that real butter, cream, cheese, and high fat grass-fed meats TASTE better, but Kelley Herring blogs about how they actually ARE better for us!

This week Dr. Sears shares about the many wondrous uses and benefits of Coconut Oil~ when you read his article you will feel as though there is almost nothing it cannot do!  Remember to retrieve the 15% off red letter discount code embedded in the article.

Our featured recipe this week is sure to bring a smile to your face and happiness to your table.

I've seen the health benefits of coconut among numerous traditional cultures in Bali, India, Peru, Jamaica and various parts of Africa. They use it for almost everything - from lip balm and skin moisturizer to cooking oil and a remedy for stomach complaints.

For years, coconut fat was demonized as the enemy of heart health - until multiple studies revealed that it's chock full of antioxidants and vitamin E. It also contains a unique kind of fat called medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs - and these are extremely good for your heart....

When it comes to health, it seems the French hold a secret that Americans don't know.

While we have the highest rates of heart disease in the world, the French have one of the lowest. And it's not just heart disease. Our European friends also weigh in with lower rates
of obesity and diabetes. And to add insult to injury...

The French are heavy consumers of all those calorie-laden things that are supposed to bad for us - red wine, butter, cream, meat and cheese. In fact, they're the largest consumers of cheese in the world, at an impressive annual average of 58 pounds per person.

So impressive are the health outcomes of the French, with high levels of fat and alcohol in their diet, that it has become known as the 'French Paradox.'  It just doesn't seem fair!
