Weston A. Price Foundation Seminar

August 29 | 2020

Seminar on Healthy Traditional Diets

with Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation

 

Sally Fallon Morell is the author of the best-selling cookbook Nourishing Tra­ditions: The Cookbook That Challenges Political­ly Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats, with Mary Enig, PhD, a world-­renowned expert in the field of lipids and human nutri­tion. This well-researched, thought-provoking guide contains a startling message: Animal fats and cholesterol are not villains but vital factors in a healthy diet, necessary for normal growth, proper functioning of the brain and nervous system, protection from disease and optimum energy levels.

In 1999, Fallon Morell helped found the Weston A. Price Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the diet through education, research and activism. The Foundation supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies.

 

Fallon Morell is also founder of A Campaign for Real Milk, dedicated to restoring consumer access to unprocessed milk products from pasture-fed cows. She is a frequent contributor to holistic health publications and serves as editor of JiVise Traditions, the quarterly magazine of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

She is noted for sorting out fact from fiction in the complicated subject of human nutrition, and for making difficult concepts easy to understand. Her seminars are both inspiring and practical.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn about the principles of healthy diets for your friends and family!
