Holiday Gifts – Day 6
Over the next couple days I’m going to share with you some healthy living
gift ideas for the holidays!
I’ll try to keep the posts brief because we all need more simplicity at this time of year,
so if you have additional questions, be sure to ask. I’m happy to answer!
I‘m highlighting gifts from another company I love: US Wellness Meats. There’s a reason they are on the TWD Things I Love page. US Wellness Meats is owned and run by family farmers in the Midwest who raise their animals on pasture, using rotational grazing practices which are great the earth, good for the animals, and healthy for us!
They share the following on their site:
For thousands of years, bison thrived in abundance on lush North American grassland. Millions of animals lived in harmony with the land by continuously moving from one grazing area to the next, allowing grassland to regularly renew itself. The relationship was good for the animals and good for the planet. By applying these same practices, US Wellness Meats farmers have introduced the same thriving balance to our own farms. Our animals don’t need antibiotics or growth hormones to grow big and healthy. Our land doesn’t need pesticides or artificial irrigation systems to develop rich, fertile biodiversity.
Their pasture raised meats are full of nutrients that can only come from a fully grass-fed diet—omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin E, and CLA—and are free of all the pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics that are found in grain-fed beef. Their offerings include: grass-fed beef, lamb, and bison; pasture-raised poultry and pork; even wild-caught seafood; and other offerings.
If you or someone you are buying for has an eye toward sustainability,
respect for animals, and eating a healthy diet,
this is the gift idea for you!
I do HIGHLY recommend purchasing from local farmers raising their animals on pasture with sustainable practices as often as you can! That being said, I love the great variety of offerings from US Wellness Meats and the flexibility to get what you want, when you need it. All meats are shipped and arrive frozen. Purchasing an E-Gift Card allows the receiver to take advantage of all of that! Again, this is another gift with which our family would be THRILLED!!
Use the links throughout this post to shop the US Wellness Meats site,
or use the links below to purchase E-Gift Cards.
I hope you’re enjoying this series of gift ideas.
I’ll be back again tomorrow with more!
