Find Nutrient-Dense Foods

If you take our Dietary Dangers and Dietary Guidelines to heart, you may be wondering where to find the nutrient-dense foods we recommend. Take one or more of the following steps to start your quest:

Ask a Local Chapter Leader. These volunteers have done the leg-work for you. Contact one in your area to obtain their list of readily available nutrient-dense foods.

Visit RealMilk.comOn our special project site, you’ll find farmers who sell or distribute through herdshares raw milk and raw dairy products (cream, butter, cheese, yogurt, kefir). These farms often provide other nutrient-dense foods in addition to raw dairy, such as pastured meat, eggs, honey, and produce.

Buy an Annual Shopping Guide. Every year we research hundreds of recommendations for commercial vendors for this no-advertisements shopping guide and categorize them as “Best,” “Good,” or “Avoid.” Buy one or more here. (You’ll also receive one annually with your membership in the Weston A. Price Foundation!)

Peruse the advertisements in the Wise Traditions Journal. Our quarterly journal is a benefit of membership. A popular section is “The Shop Heard Round the World,” 20+ pages of carefully vetted, high-quality food vendor advertisements.  Join now to receive your first issue or buy a single issue ($10 value) from the shopping cart.

Read Healthy 4 Life This short nutrition primer with recipes is a great introduction to nutrient-density, organized around four basic “food groups” to simplify meal planning and help you maximize nutrients for robust good health. You can download a PDF version from the Healthy 4 Life page, or order your own printed copy from the shopping cart.

      I too am in the valley! I’ve been looking tirelessly for raw milk close to us but about 1 1/2-2 hours away is the closest I can find (Denver or Grand Junction). I would love to make contact with you… maybe we can hook up a raw milk ride share? Other than that, I’ve been buying my meat online from Alderspring ranch but would really, really like to source that closer to home as well.

      Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Part of the last election in my state of OR. was a opportunity for the citizens to pass a law makeing food producers selling their food in OR. to label them as having GMO ingredients. It failed but only by a small margin. My question is who is driving the interest in labeling food as having GMO ingredients, what is in it for them and where does their funding come from.
    I am not a scientist do have a business degree.
    Thanks for your response.

  19. Brandi S says:

    When I take Nordic natural cod liver oil even at only 1 tsp I notice my hair starts falling out. That is the only supplement I take. I do think it helps some with depression but I don’t like to take it when I notice my hair falls out more. What could be the problem? Nordic naturals seems to be a good brand.

  20. Joy H. says:

    I’d love to know where to buy locally grown organic produce, kefir, raw honey and pasture raised grassfed chicken, turkey and beef in Metrowest County Massachusetts. It’s hard for me to find trustworthy sources in my area.

  21. john says:

    I love the philosoggy of WAPF but was just curious about something, why isn’t cod liver promoted? I came across a tin of cod liver packed in its own oil and it was awesome! Not fishy at all and tasted like pate. Is there a BPA concern with all the oil and lining of the can (like a sardine can)?
