Athlete's Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A

We are very confused regarding carbohydrate consumption and body fat loss. Some say they are good and most say they are bad. We have done very well with a 0-carb ketogenic plan, but after a few weeks the progress becomes so slow with fat loss. Do we need carbs and how do we use them to keep fat loss going fast?
~ Tina and Joe
Customer Feedback

"Restaurant Quality Pork Belly at Home with the Instant Pot!"
"I've always loved pork belly, but shied away from making it at home. Traditional recipes take a lot of time (6 hours). Since I've become an Instant Pot devotee, I decided to try my hand at Pork Belly in the Instant Pot. WOW! I added 2 ounces of sherry and 1/2 cup bone broth along with some fresh garlic and spices (smoked paprika). I set the time to 80 minutes and the pressure to HIGH.

When the time was just about up, I added a liberal amount of duck fat to a large cast iron pan and put it in a 400 F oven to heat. When the Instant Pot timer went off, I placed the pork belly, fat side down into my preheated duck fat pan and roasted for 30 minutes. I removed it from the pan, sprinkled with some Maldon sea salt and cut into chunks.

This pork belly was nothing short of perfection - flavorful, tender, fatty and meaty!

Thank you US Wellness Meats!!!"

Finding a way to include healthy organ meats into your diet can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. For many, liverwurst is delicious solution to that dilemma. Liverwurst is an amazing superfood that includes a trifecta of organ meats: liver, kidney, and heart. For conservative or picky eaters, this dish from Celeste Longacre makes organ meats much more palatable. 

Our thanks to Past USWM Featured Chef Celeste Longacre for this tasty fried liverwurst treat. Visit Celeste's site for more recipes and her cookbook, 'Celeste's Garden Delights'.
Farm Photos  
Our cattle are enjoying Utopia conditions along the Gulf Coast. Nearly all heads are down in the active grazing mode.  The animal impact in this environment is benefiting billions of critters below the soil surface. Carbon is being stored daily in this unique environment.  

Nearly all of these cattle are contentedly turning sunlight, healthy plants, and healthy soil into nutritious high quality meats. This cycle harkens back to centuries old sustainable farming traditions. 

Purchasing Information
Order Minimums
  • All orders must weigh at least 7 pounds in order to ship, to ensure everything stays frozen during transit.
  • $75 minimum purchase requirement, since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of each product.
  • You will never be charged extra for shipping.
  • There is a $7.50 handling fee upon checkout.
  • The South Carolina Chicken Bundles, BBQ Sauce, produce and cookbooks ship from separate locations, so they are not included in the 7 lb weight minimum.  The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if your order is under the 7 lb limit.   
Weight Discount
  • Receive a $25 discount for every 40 pounds you order. This offer excludes items that ship separate such as the South Carolina Chicken, produce and fresh bundles.
  • This is our way of saying thank-you for purchasing in bulk!
  • This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category.  Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount - for example, order 80 pounds and we'll take $50 off!
