Memorial Day is a somber holiday on one hand, and a joyful celebration of graduations and the kickoff to summer on the other. Originally known as Decoration Day, it was started as a way to honor those who died while serving in the Civil War. Since then the name has changed, and the day is now dedicated to all Americans who died while serving our great nation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all mourning the loss of a loved one this weekend, and to all of those presently serving both at home and abroad.
School is out, Summer is here, and for many of us that means we spend a lot more time away from our kitchens. Do you struggle to find convenience foods that work with your food plan? If so, you'll want to explore this week's featured category Healthy Snacks which has over 40 handy options!
Want more ideas? The Paleo Mom created a fantastic list too. With all these snack suggestions, your next road trip, vacation, or even staycation just got easier!
For many of us, Summer also means that mosquitoes and other biting insects are back. Now more than ever, it can be challenging to know the best way to keep those pesky bugs at bay and still avoid all the chemicals in typical sprays and lotions. Read Dr. Mendelson's article this week to learn some natural ways (supported by Consumer Reports research!) to keep the mosquitoes away.

All Gave Some ... Some Gave All
Remembering Them All,
John, Lee Ann, Tressa, Laura, Deric, and Courtney on behalf of the farm families of US Wellness Meats.
Biting insects can put a damper on your summer fun, not to mention potentially transmit diseases like Lyme disease and West Nile Virus... People also told Consumer Reports that safety is important when choosing an insect repellent, and only one-third believe products on the market are safe for adults (and only 23 percent considered them safe for kids). Concern is well-justified, as DEET (N,N-diethyl- meta-toluamide) is used in hundreds of products, in concentrations of up to an astounding 100 percent.
"Just wanted to thank you again for the May Chef's package. Everything arrived (as usual) in record time and still frozen. Thanks, too, for substituting the pork bacon with beef.
I made the Primal Chili using the two packages of 75% ground beef and have to say I was amazed at how little fat there was in the pan. The chili was delicious--we had two meals of it with leftovers. We've sampled the Raw Jalapeno Cheddar and it is superb! Next up Bone Broth and the Bolognaise. I'll be writing reviews for each item in the package.
Love your company and all the wonderful grass-fed items. (We've been customers for the Sugar-Free Beef Bacon for some time.)
Again, thank you for a wonderful surprise and cooking/dining experience.
Thank you to Katie of Wellness Mama for sharing this recipe that easily falls into our "healthy snacks" focus of this week.
"My kids really like beef jerky, and actually I do too. For a long time, we never had it in the house because a) it's expensive and b) unless its full of sugars and nitrates, it is really expensive!
When a road trip left me desperate for some kind of portable protein, I tried an idea a friend had recommended: making jerky from ground beef. It was surprisingly easy, much cheaper, and the kids loved it. I now keep this on hand for daily snacks and make big batches for trips."
