These Recipe eCards are prepared and designed by Anji Sandage, Weston A. Price chapter leader in Salt Lake City. Kids of all ages should be getting into the kitchen with mom or dad and cooking together . . . with farm fresh foods. But children need to LEARN HOW . . . and cooking makes a wonderful teaching time for measuring, arithmetic, science, health and learning a little about the nutritional science behind their creations. Now they can with the new Healthy Kids Recipe eCards featuring nutrient-dense recipes by Anji Sandage. (She told me on the phone that she spent fifteen years collecting and perfecting the recipes for her children and all of her nieces and nephews—and recently upgraded them to natural food ingredients.) 

They will love you more for giving them the opportunity to cook real food a few times a week. Kids (and adults) need structure and direction and like being an important part of a functional family. A sense of accomplishment gives them the self esteem that only truly comes by earning it through achievement with the blessing of the entire family. They crave this stuff.

It is far more important to make time for this useful learning activity than in practicing soccer during the week for that game on Sunday, or worse, wasting time on video games, television and other such temporary gratification devices.

International Nutrition Conference to Explore The Politics of Food

October 12, 2010-WASHINGTON, D.C.— The intense debate generated by proposed food safety legislation, ongoing government opposition to raw milk, and raids by agents with guns drawn on private food clubs in California and Ohio, has vaulted the subject of food politics into the eye of consumers and policy makers.  Should small farms be regulated? Are the USDA dietary guidelines improving health or causing disease? Do citizens have a right to the foods of their choice?

Food activists, raw milk advocates, nutritionists, farmers and consumers will explore these issues at Wise Traditions 2010, the 11th annual international conference of the Weston A. Price Foundation, November 12-15 in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. With over 136 licensed raw dairy farms and forty applications pending, Pennsylvania leads the nation in preserving traditional dairy farming methods and providing access to raw milk for consumers.

The Weston A. Price Foundation, a nonprofit nutrition education foundation, will host more than twelve hundred participants for the four-day event of presentations, seminars, food preparation demonstrations and farm tours, in addition to showcasing delicious traditional foods.  Attendees will include health and nutrition professionals, farmers, activists and wellness-oriented citizens from around the world. The event is open to the public and Continuing Education Credits are available for some health professionals.

Several experts will address the subject of raw milk, including Tim Wightman, dairy and soil expert, Ted Beals, MD, physician and dairy safety consultant, and Mark McAfee, owner of the largest raw dairy in California.

At the general session on Saturday, November 13, Geoffrey Smith will discuss the politics of genetically modified organisms, Judith McGeary will explore the pitfalls in proposed food safety legislation, and Sally Fallon Morell will present insights into the negative effects of the USDA dietary guidelines on foods served at school lunch programs and in institutions like prisons and hospitals.

Other topics on the menu include dental health, heart disease, soil and livestock fertility, cancer alternatives and native diets. The exhibit hall, featuring over one hundred vendors of whole foods, supplements, body care products and crafts, will be open on Saturday and Sunday

The conference will feature several full day seminars on Friday, November 12: Traditional Diets by Sally Fallon Morell; Holistic Cancer Therapy with Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, MD;  Gut and Psychology Syndrome by autism specialist, Natasha Campbell McBride; Soil Health and Fertility with Will Winter, DVM, and Jerry Brunetti, soil health expert; and Milk Quality, Testing, and Continuing Education for Dairy Farmers with Mark McAfee, Dr. Ted Beals, and Tim Wightman, author of the Raw Milk Production Handbook.

Other partial day tracks will cover the topics of cooking, wellness, hormones, environmental hazards,  fitness and weight loss.

The conference will feature delicious traditional meals, with much of the food donated by sustainable small farmers from around the country.

Why Don’t They Get It? Maureen Diaz on God’s Food and Medicine

Maureen Diaz is a Weston A. Price chapter leader up near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. I met her last month at their annual conference and Annie has her traditional cooking video (you really have to see her new DVD featured below!) She wrote an article called “Why Don’t They Get It?” over at Liberation Wellness, posted yesterday. She writes about when she is at church fellowships where the ladies talk about all the diseases going around as they serve the folks junk food: cookies, cakes and other industrially processed food. Here is my favorite part:

God has supplied us with everything we need to live an abundant life upon this earth. We just need to recognize and return to His nourishing and healing ways! Let’s return to His garden, His pasture. Let us embrace His healing ways; the herbs, oils, foods, and prayer which are our sources of health and healing. God’s medicine cabinet is full of good things! These medicines are not quackery or the delusions of fanatical, misguided people. They are God’s ways, and His ways are always good. Even Hippocrates understood these principles when he declared, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”.

You can read Why Don’t They Get It? at Liberation Wellness.

She has brought to mind that I have not yet put out Part II of Spiritual Meaning of Natural Food and Drink. (Part I is here) Maureen has produced another nutritious cooking DVD. I have only seen one segment– but based on her first video that Annie and I bought two years ago– you will want to have both.

Now, sample her new DVD production call Liberation Cooking.
