SUNDAY, APRIL 22 1-5 PM
Sally Fallon, Workshop on Traditional Diets
Animal fats, properly prepared whole grains, enzyme-enriched foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why you need these foods too. Beginning with a presentation of Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Sally delineates the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets that conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods–foods that your family will actually eat–back into your diet including easy breakfast cereals, soups, snack foods, high-enzyme condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you!
- Butter, the number one health food
- Vital role of high cholesterol foods
- Dangers of modern soy foods
- Foods that help babies grow smart and strong
- Why our animal foods should be pasture-fed
- Old-fashioned foods that give limitless energy and vibrant health
Sally Fallon, author of Nourishing Traditions and president of The Weston A. Price Foundation, is a frequent speaker at conferences and seminars on whole foods and nutrition. Her interest in the subject of diet and human health began in the 1970s when she read Nutrition & Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston A. Price. This pioneering study of healthy indigenous peoples presents compelling evidence that the basis of good health is found in nutrient-dense whole foods, particularly animal fats rich in vitamin A, vitamin D and the Price Factor. This includes sea food, organ meats, eggs and butterfat from grass-fed animals. Her experience in applying Dr. Price’s findings to the feeding of her own family, and her work with Dr. Mary Enig, led her to write Nourishing Traditions.
