Dr. Weston A. Price, who is he and what is the Weston Price Foundation?
The other day I did an interview with Jimmy Moore for his podcast (it won’t be up for a while, I’ll let you know), and he asked about how I started down the road of healthier eating. As I explained my “food conversion” story to him, I was reminded again at just how much the Weston Price Foundation means to me.
In the beginning…
I owe a huge thank you to my friend, Kathy, who first told me about Dr. Weston A. Price and the Weston Price Foundation back in early 2004. When I began reading their website something in me “clicked” and I haven’t been the same since! I’ve always been drawn to finding the Truth, and what makes sense with whatever it is that I’m researching at the time, and at that time in my life I was curious about dieting and how best to go about it. Below are some of the wild and crazy things I learned that day…
- Butter is actually good for me?
- Red meat is nutritious if you buy from a farmer who knows what he’s doing?
- Dieting should not include “fat-free sugar-free” (FAKE) foods?
- Soy is not a health food?
Those topics and all the “politically incorrect” information there blew me away. It made sense and I knew I’d found what I was looking for.
Why I hope you’ll become a Weston Price Foundation member, if you’re not already…
(By the way, I do not receive any compensation if you do sign up, I’m just trying to bring more awareness to this great organization.)
Since that day when I first found the Weston Price Foundation site, that is where I go first when researching any topic. Their articles are highly referenced and researched. As a member you get the WAPF quarterly journal, Wise Traditions, which I happily read cover to cover. (Here’s a pic of Ann Marie & I on the beach reading them when I went to see her last spring. Yes, that’s how we relax!) By becoming a member you also help support all they do and help them to continue. For us Real Foodies, this is no small thing. (Read more about the man, Weston Price.)
Now I hope you’ll tell us what the WAPF means to you!
