Saturday: Myths and Truths about Vegan Diets
Think a vegan diet is the ticket to personal and planetary health? Then it’s time the hear The Naughty Nutritionist™ scuttle the wishful thinking that fuels vegan myths. In this lecture, Dr. Daniel will reveal the evidence supporting diets rich in animal products, the true causes of the diseases of modern civilization, the vitamin and mineral deficiencies found frequently in vegans, and ways to recover from vegan and soy-based diets.

Sunday: Empowering Fertility
One in seven American couples now suffers from infertility. Within the next decade, that figure is predicted to move up to one in three. Menstrual distress, mood disorders and depressed libidos add to the heartbreak. Although Father Technology has waged war on infertility using drugs, hormones and surgery, Mother Nature offers instead a cornucopia of sacred foods, herbs and aphrodisiacs. In this lecture, Dr. Kaayla Daniel will show why those who would be “fruitful and multiply” will not only avoid processed, packaged and fast foods but spurn politically correct, lowfat, high-soy, plant-based diets. And that’s not only the secret to fertility but to optimum health for men, women and children.

Real food requires real work… and once you add kids into the mix, the challenges can be really big at times. But kids, far from being merely another mouth to feed, can be a real asset in the home and kitchen, and by incorporating rather than excluding them from the daily tasks of cooking and cleaning, we can give them an appreciation not just for the food they eat, but the traditional skills, tools, artistry and community that goes into producing each meal, and enrich our relationship with them at each stage of their growing.
