US Wellness Reviews & Praise

well done, praise, reviews

We hate to toot our own horn, so we’ll let others do it for us. We have been blessed over the years to have relationships with so many fine people who have dedicated themselves and their message to encouraging and teaching folks to appreciate sustainably raised, healthy food sources. If you’re looking for US Wellness Reviews, you’ve come to the right place. This is just a few of the nice things said about US Wellness over the years.

All beef is a great source of iron, B vitamins and zinc—three nutrients many Americans don’t get enough of. About 50 years ago, farmers started to fatten cattle on grain instead of grass. But grass-fed beef has so many virtues. According to Loren Cordain, a professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University, grass-fed beef resembles the wild game our ancestors ate. It contains less fat, less saturated fat, more CLA (an anti-cancer fat) and more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef. Overall the nutrient profile of grass-fed beef is far and away better for the animal’s health and likewise our own.

The New York Times:

“It has taken me three years to find a piece of grass-fed beef that is tender, juicy, meaty and available online… the steaks from Grassland Beef [now U.S. Wellness Meats] are satisfyingly delicious.”
— Marian Burros, Food Columnist New York Times [11.26.2003]

“Four of the ribeye steaks; including one from U.S. Wellness Meats, brought back memories of the beef flavor meat had before cattle were stuffed with grain in feedlots.”
— Marian Burros, Food Columnist New York Times

Chicago Daily Herald:

“A little less than a year ago I found a terrific company from which I get grass-fed, grass-finished beef: US Wellness Meats, located in Canton, Missouri (population 2,377). Contact them at”
Don Mauer, Food Columnist Chicago Daily Herald [01.24.2018]  Read the original article.

“How were my beef short ribs? Amazing. Even though grass-finished beef is much leaner than CAFO beef, my ribs were moist and full of flavor; almost difficult to stop eating. My beef and barley soup had a big beef flavor from the bones.”  See Don Mauer’s recipe for mouthwatering short ribs.

“The quality, taste, and healthfulness of grass-fed meat and sustainably-caught fish are unsurpassed. When I cook with these premium proteins, I try to highlight their flavors and not overcomplicate the preparations because the ingredients speak for themselves.”

“I learned about grass-fed meat from reading every Paleo and Primal book I could get my hands on. The book that changed my life was the Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf and that’s where it all started. After that, a quick google search, and I immersed myself in every bit of research I could find. Once I made the change and the health benefits became apparent by experiencing them I was hooked for life. Don’t believe me, you can come check the deep freezer in my garage stocked to the rim with grass-fed meat.”

“These pork chops I got from US Wellness Meats are ridiculous. They are so stupid good. It took a lot of self control to not eat the entire package I had bought. If you haven’t checked out their meats yet, do it. DO IT NOW.”

– Juli Bauer, PaleOMG, US Wellness Feature Chef


US Wellness Review

“US Wellness Meats is a meat delivery service that goes beyond just selling organic meat door to door. It is so much more than this. Think of every butcher shop product you would want for the Keto, Paleo or general healthy diet and they have it.” Opinion: We recommend that if you are fussy over what meat you eat then you MUST try out US Wellness Meats. The prices and the quality of the produce is truly spectacular and for a company that has been providing Paleo and Primal meats for 19 years, they are trusted by many too.

Barbecued Beef Chuck Short Ribs — A Nice Treat That You Don’t Want to Share

The barbecued ribs were so soft and tender, melt in your mouth delicious. I told my husband that we were probably way over our limit in portion size and could have shared it a little, but as we scarfed it down, we didn’t really care. I made campanelle and pancetta in a smoky goat cheese, and cooked up some orange cauliflower that I froze at the end of the summer.

“The US Wellness bacon took our Saturday morning breakfast to another level! The texture was perfectly crisp while still remaining tender and melt-in-your-mouth. I love that it’s free of MSG, nitrates, and dyes like bacon you find at the store. The ingredients are simple: pork, sea salt (hickory smoked). Isn’t that how bacon is supposed to be?”

– Paleo Magazine, Feb/March 2013

“Every meat is Paleo, but quality makes a difference. Buy grass-fed, wild, and pastured when applicable and possible. Also, ignore any sites that tell you to eat only lean meats – that advice is based on 20-year old research and beliefs. If you have trouble getting good quality meats in the US, then check out US Wellness Meats here and get it delivered to your door!

Also, while chicken is included in this “meats” category, please don’t just eat chicken as your protein! Eat a variety of meats (including organ meats and fish and seafood) to ensure you get all your nutrients.”

The recipes in this book are typically easy, require few ingredients, and are perfect for newcomers to Paleo (or cooking in general).

Tender Grassfed Meat

By: Stanley Fishman

“So far, I have only found such (organ) sausages at US Wellness Meats.  They sell liverwurst, braunschweiger ,and headcheese that are full of healthy grassfed organ meats, and meet all my other requirements.  These sausages work well in my recipes, and are delicious on their own.”

Tender Grassfed Barbecue

By: Stanley Fishman

“I finally learned how to cook by studying and adapting traditional cooking methods.  I finally realized that traditional coking methods might work for barbecue as well.  I also realized that traiditional barbecue methods must have produced safe food, beacuse all of the traditional people barbecued, and all of them were free of chronic illness when they ate their traditional diet.”
