My friend, Anne, was one of the first “freaks” I got to know. You know, one of “those people” who buy raw milk, make their own butter, drink Kombucha, and cook most meals at home… and that's only a very small part of the list. I remember the first time she showed some other friends & I around her kitchen and everything seemed so foreign. Well, as you know, now I'm considered a freak as well (although I still have quite a ways to go before I cook as healthy as she does), and she has taught me a lot through the years!
If you aren't a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation, then you probably haven't seen this article Anne wrote for the fall issue of their quarterly publication, Wise Traditions. (Or maybe you've got a whole stack of them in your closet that you haven't been able to get to yet, like someone I know…)
It is 11 pages long, but WAIT! Before you hit your little red x up in the corner because you don't have time to read it, keep in mind that there are some interesting pictures and some GREAT charts that take up a good share of that space.
VERY USEFUL CHARTS:
- The first chart is, “Annual Medical Costs for our Family of Six“
- The second chart is, “A Week of Meals for our Family, the Weston A. Price Way“
- The third chart is, “The High Cost of the Standard American Diet“
