I am happy to announce that the next meeting of Houston Real Food Nutrition on August 16th will be a discussion about the research of Dr. Weston A. Price and the Principles of Nourishing Traditional Diets.
Dr. Weston A. Price was a dentist and nutrition researcher who studied and analyzed the diets of isolated groups of people who were still eating their traditional diets. To find such groups was still possible in the 1930’s when he traveled but would probably not be done today.
The topic is An Overview of the Nutrition Research of Dr. Weston A. Price and The Principles of Nourishing Traditional Diets. Amy Robison and I will be leading the discussion. We are both co-leaders of the Houston-Galveston Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).
Sally Fallon Morrell, president of the WAPF, gave a much more extensive talk on this subject at the recent Houston Regional Wise Traditions Conference in March. If you missed her presentation or want to refresh your knowledge, please join us. However, if you ever get a chance to hear her talk about traditional diets, don’t miss it. She is an excellent speaker and her knowledge on the subject is phenomenal.
At our meeting we will show a short video about Dr. Price’s research followed by a slide show and discussion of the underlying characteristics of nourishing traditional diets.
Here are some of the things you will learn about traditional diets which could improve your family’s health:
–The kinds of foods that are necessary for a nutrient-dense diet
–The kinds of foods that should be avoided for the best health
–Which nutrients are essential
–The benefits of cooked versus raw foods
–How to prepare foods to make them more nutritious
and much more. . .
There will be giveaways and plenty of time for questions and answers both during and after the presentation. The meeting should last about 1-1/2 to 2 hours depending on the number of questions.
Join us for a great time, win prizes, all while learning how you and your family can improve your health through better nutrition!
There will be handouts providing sources for more information about Dr. Price’s research and traditional diets.

We hope to see you there!
