So how do you define real food. . . unprocessed?  organic?   local?  natural?  Yes, it’s all of that, and more.  I want to promote real food for the Houston area.  I’m Carolyn Biggerstaff, and I live in Clear Lake City, Houston, TX.  My nutrition and health views follow those of The Weston A. Price Foundation and the Nutritional Therapy Association.  I love the movie Fresh–the black, composted soil full of wriggly earth worms and the glorious Joel Salatin Polyface farm.  I eat local farmers’ market produce and local grassfed beef, pastured chickens and eggs, and, of course, raw cow milk, raw cream, and raw milk kefir.  I am a member and co- leader of the Houston-Galveston Chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation, and a member of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, and the Nutritional Therapy Association.

I am not a health practitioner.  The nutritional and other information on this website are not intended to be and do not constitute health care or medical advice.  You are advised to read widely and well, and, for specific medical issues, to consult your qualified health care provider to determine what is best for your health.

By the way, the photograph in the header was taken in the summer of 2010 at Stryk’s Dairy Farm in Schulenberg, TX.  Doesn’t it look like a great place to get your milk?

    I look forward to seeing a dialog here about healthy eating in Houston. Thanks to the farmers’ markets and Whole Foods we have access to a great variety of fresh raw organic produce and meats. I would like to know any suggestions fellow bloggers have as to where such foods are available in restaurants in the Houston area. We patronize Ta’fia and Ruggles Green. Are there others? Thank you!

    That’s my hope also.

  3. I’m looking forward to it as well! Thanks Carolyn! Although its quite expensive, Feast on Westheimer serves local, traditional fare and it looks like their website posts their daily menu as well as the farms where the food is from- awesome! http://sites.google.com/site/feasthouston/
