    Hi Kelly,

    I wanted to say that I just read your “Real Food Ingredient Guide” from cover to cover — given to me my friend (Hilary), who is also my co-chair of a grassroots organization we’re running to help change the school food in our town. Hilary started this movement in our town and follows Weston Price, has been to conferences, etc. and is going to start teaching classes. I have been eating local/organic and unprocessed for the last 5 years or so and have been learning more about WP etc. from her this past year. And, we both feed our families this way. This is all to say that I LOVE this guide and think what you’ve put together is fantastic, and a great way to help educate others. My only “complaint,” is that I just wish it was not called Kelly the “Kitchen Kop.” I know that this is your entire website and brand, but as a person who is trying to implement change in our town and schools (and even extended families so our kids are not eating garbage at the grandparents’ houses), it’s hard enough to avoid the “food police” label as it is. While I love the information IN the guide, I do feel the label “Kitchen Kop” makes people kind of tune it out if they’re not inclined to want to learn about it. I know you can’t change everyone, but my suggestion is to try to come up with a name that is more approachable and positive with the exact same information. If so, I feel like I could hand this guide out to everyone I know — it’s great information!

    I hope this does not feel insulting to you in any way — my only intent is to point out another perspective that would (I think) enable you to really reach a wider audience — which, I think any of us who are passionate about this topic would like to see happen!


    p.s. Not sure if this email will be public, so would prefer not to put my full name, but I’d welcome an email back directly if you would like to discuss further.

    Hi Karen,

    Gosh I never thought about that, I guess I’d hoped that the “humor” in the name would draw people in, I certainly don’t want it to push people away!

    I appreciate your feedback though and I’m not offended. :)

    Kelly p.s. Your comment goes public right away, but I’ll edit it for you to take out your last name!
