Saturday Morning: ACHIEVING OPTIMAL HEALTH THROUGH NOURISHING TRADITIONAL DIETS 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 you need these foods too. Beginning with a presentation of Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Sally explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets that conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Participants will learn about: Butter, the number one health food Vital role of high cholesterol foods Dangers of modern soy foods and soy infant formula The conspiracy to promote vegetable oils and hydrogenated fats Foods that help babies grow up smart and strong Old fashioned foods that give limitless energy and vibrant health The unfortunate consequences of modern farming methods Saturday Afternoon: A Campaign for Real Milk According to the FDA, raw milk is inherently dangerous and should not be consumed by anyone, especially children, at any time or for any reason. Nothing could be further from the truth. Raw milk is inherently safe and the perfect food for almost everyone — especially growing children! The Oiling of America How the false cholesterol theory caused Americans to abandon traditional whole foods and created an epidemic of chronic disease. Participants will learn about: The history of the diet-heart theory of heart disease Fraud and manipulation in medical research The vital role of cholesterol in human health Other theories of heart disease Sunday Morning: How to Change Your Diet for the Better 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! Sunday Afternoon: Healthy Pregnancy A healthy pregnancy requires a nutrient-dense diet, avoidance of all drugs and medical interventions, and a bit of pampering. Special emphasis on the dangers of ultra-sound and pre-natal vaccinations. Strategies for Healthy Eating for those who like to cook and those who never cook Even if you don’t like to cook, you can still eat a healthy diet; and if you do like to cook, you’ll find it much more fun when you use the principles of nourishing traditional diets! Course Instructor Sally Fallon Morell is founding president of The Weston A. Price Foundation (westonaprice.org), a non-profit nutrition education foundation dedicated to returning nutrient-dense food to American tables. She is also the founder of A Campaign for Real Milk (realmilk.com), which has as its goal universal access to clean raw milk from pasture-fed animals. She is the author of the best-selling cookbook Nourishing Traditions (with Mary G. Enig, PhD); The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care (with Thomas S. Cowan, MD); Nourishing Broth (with Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN); and Nourishing Fats. Visit her blog at nourishingtraditions.com.
