Dear Atlanta,
Depending on where you live, winters can be hazardous for more than one reason. The lack of sunshine can wreak havoc on a body and mind. This week's article on Vitamin D is a timely reminder to get some sunshine. Your body craves it.

Are you getting enough Vitamin D?
  • Winter blues are often associated with lack of sunshine.
  • Are you experiencing body aches?
  • Older adults need more because the body works less efficiently at making vitamin D.
  • Digestive issues? Pay attention to your gut, it might be telling you to get more Vitamin D in your diet.
These are just a few things to consider. If you're experiencing a long winter, add a little sunshine into your diet. Our Wild-Caught Seafood is a healthy, natural Vitamin D source. It's loaded with Vitamin D and more nutrients your body needs. Our Beef Liver is also rich in Vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals.

Our Salmon Burger is back in stock and just in time for Lent. Stock up now while we have supply.

Customer Feedback

"Very good! First time trying these shrimp. We made a shrimp scampi dip with about a pound of these shrimp and they were delicious. Will be buying these again!" 
~ Kim B. of Divide, CO

"Excellent!!! Love this product. Pulled out 10 from the bag last night, defrosted quickly and then sautéed them up simply with garlic and butter. They were delicious. Read about brown shrimp having a stronger flavor, but it wasn't noticeable at all to us, just regular shrimpy goodness. I can see this being a future staple in our freezer going forward. (Yeah surf and turf!)"
~ Dee H. of San Mateo, CA
