Animal fats, properly prepared whole grains, enzyme-enriched foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why these are vital factors for maintaining good health today. She explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets which conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Ms. Fallon Morell presents a plan to put nourishing traditional foods—foods that your family will actually eat—back into your diet, and will share her shopping and cooking tips for those with a busy life.
10:00 - 12:00 Morning talk - Nourishing Traditional Diets--The Key to Vibrant Health
Based on the pioneering work of Dr. Weston A. Price, this talk will explain the eleven basic principles of healthy traditional diets from around the world. Learn about the role of the fat-soluble vitamins, the dangers of veganism, the health benefits of raw milk, how to prepare grains for maximum digestibility, the importance of lacto-fermented foods and gelatinous bone broths, and the human need for salt. These principles can be applied to any diet based on food availability, your budget, the time you have for food preparation and whether or not your children will actually eat these foods!
