Fab {Real} Foodie Finds…US Wellness Meats; Bring the Farm to Your Door

Working with our nutritional therapy clients and spreading the real food message of sourcing QUALITY foods, there’s something we hear quite often…” I want to eat healthy real foods, but there’s no store or farm near me that has {insert real food here}”

Grassfed beef, pastured chicken and pork, raw milk cheese from grassfed cows, bacon or sausages made from pastured animals and without nitrates/nitrites, etc. are all healthful foods that can be very difficult to locate in the typical supermarket. It’s true that, in many places it’s difficult to find any of these products even at a local farm, much less ALL from one location. And with our busy lifestyles, it can be hard to find time to go to 5 or 6 different places.

Enter U.S. Wellness Meats.

This fantastic family-run business started back in 2000, with just one goal- to provide high quality grass-fed (and grass-finished) beef to consumers. They succeeded. U.S. Wellness Meats grass-fed beef is recognized for its exceptional taste, quality and health benefits by chefs,  professional athletes, and health and nutrition experts, including yours truly.

Today, eleven years later, U.S. Wellness Meats has joined with like-minded small family farms across the country to expand its offerings to include grass-fed lamb, bison, and goat, as well as grass-fed butter and cheese, free-range poultry, pork products, honey, organic nuts and condiments as well as kitchen and personal care products.  When you order from U.S. Wellness Meats you know you are getting the high-quality products you want to provide for your family.

We recently had the opportunity to try some more delicious and healthy products from their awesome line-up, and we can’t wait to share our reviews with you:

U.S. Wellness Meats GrassFed Beef Sliders
This is a new product from USWM and we love them!  Each package contains 6) 2.5 oz patties. They are so cute! It was easy to just pop these in a pan, season with unrefined sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and dinner was done in no time. Because we’re gluten-free (and mostly grain-free), I served these on onion nests and topped them with raw cheese, with a side of veggies sauteed in butter and a little fermented ketchup for dipping. Delish!

U.S. Wellness Meats GrassFed Tender Filet Mignon
This was 6oz. of deliciousness! A tender, flavorful cut of succulent grassfed beef that I marinated in olive oil and garlic, with plenty of freshly ground black pepper and unrefined sea salt before it took a trip out to the grill until it was just on the rare side of medium rare.  Paired with our sauteed swiss chard and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, this was the perfect Saturday night dinner.

U.S. Wellness Meats Free-Range Chicken Breasts 
Free from hormones and antibiotics and raised on pasture, this chicken is tasty and healthy. I made one of our favorite chicken dishes, Quick Indian Spiced Chicken, and it was absolutely fantastic 🙂

U.S. Wellness Meats Raw Milk Havarti
This rich, creamy grass-fed cheese is produced from Jersey cows at an Amish grass-fed dairy. It might be a new favorite around here. Perfect texture, buttery taste- it did not last long!

U.S. Wellness Meats Beef Bacon
This was the first time I’d ever tried beef bacon. From grass-fed beef, this bacon contains only beef, water, salt, brown sugar, spices (cinnamon, clove, and red pepper) without the harmful nitrates/nitrites found in commercial bacon. It was very good- thick pieces with a very beefy flavor. While I still prefer pastured pork bacon, this was a nice way to change things up and vary the nutrition!

U.S. Wellness Meats GrassFed Ground Beef
How could you not love this? Quality ground beef that is easy to use in all your favorite recipes. Excellent flavor, wonderfully nutritious!

U.S. Wellness Meats GrassFed Petite Top Sirloin
This meaty cut was sliced into strips, marinated in naturally fermented tamari, minced garlic and ginger and stir fried in coconut oil along with some organic carrots, broccoli, onions, mushrooms and snow peas. Excellent!

U.S. Wellness Meats GrassFed Slow Roasted Shredded Beef
It’s not often that you find healthy prepared food. This is one of those rare gifts to busy people everywhere.  Precooked without any additives of any kind, this mouthwatering beef met up with some cumin, chili powder, salsa and warmed organic sprouted corn tortillas for a weeknight taco dinner that everybody loved! A cool note on this, recent lab analysis has shown this beef to have an omega 6:3 ratio better than 1:1 and CLA over 2% of the lipid content! That’s fantastic news in a world with rampant fatty acid imbalance!

Overall, our culinary tour of U.S. Wellness Meats was a smashing success and each product I would order again. There are so many more options in their line that I want to try as well- different varieties of raw milk cheeses, rabbit, bison (which I love!) and all the different sausages. There is also an impressive array of organ meats, sourced from healthy animals, and those are nutrient-dense superstars that I am working hard to incorporate into our diet.

The customer service that we’ve received has always been outstanding and the shipping was fast, with extreme care taken to package everything so that it stays protected and fresh during shipping. All of my items were still frozen solid! If you haven’t checked out U.S. Wellness Meats, we highly suggest that you do so- you won’t be disappointed!
