Know Your Farmer ... Know Your Food
As your gut goes, so goes your body and your brain. This week's Dr. Mercola article emphasizing the importance of a healthy gut.
"Know your farmer, know your food" is one of the founding principles of US Wellness Meats. In 2003 after three years of producing and selling only grass-beef, US Wellness tapped a Minnesota grass-fed butter company and a South Carolina free range chicken company as additions to US Wellness Meats. Both small farm producers had stellar credentials and shared the same zeal for high quality, healthy foods.
Since then we have added more complementary partners, and each of them is personally vetted to ensure they share our passion, capability, and standards for excellence. US Wellness avoids hormones, antibiotics, and GMO's. The lamb, bison, dairy, and beef were grass-fed and grass finished. To learn more, view the story of our partners and how our products make it to your table. These partnerships are constantly nurtured to keep production practices razor sharp, and on the cutting edge of smart food. This model has been a winner for the farmers, fishermen, and families in all 50 states of the USA.
Speaking of quality producers, our heritage pork is raised in Missouri and it has become one of the most popular categories in our store over the years. The Sugar-Free Bacon, and Sugar-Free Breakfast Sausage consistently top the list of customer favorites. To learn more about our pork products check out our pork blog article, then add a couple items to your cart and take advantage of this week's Featured Category discount. (See below for details)

The quality, quantity, and composition of the bacteria in your gut have enormous influence on your brain. Dr. David Perlmutter explores this phenomenon in great detail in his new book, Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain-for Life.
Certainly, most neurologists fail to consider how lifestyle impacts the neurological disorders they diagnose and treat every day, and prevention is an area of utmost importance as we still do not have effective treatments for many of the most common brain disorders. "We're now recognizing from research at our most well-respected institutions from around the globe that the gut bacteria are wielding this very powerful sword of Damocles," he says.
Follow Dr. Mercola's advice and try to include more fermented foods into your diet. Thank you to Katie of Wellness Mama for sharing this recipe for homemade sauerkraut. It has all the benefits of traditional fermented foods, including the abundance of natural probiotics, and tastes better than anything you can buy in the store. AND it's the perfect accompaniment to any of our delicious all natural sausages!
