Secrets Behind the Wise Traditions Conference with Maureen Diaz
Recently my longtime friend Maureen and I sat down for a chat and covered all sorts of ground. She shared some secrets behind the Wise Traditions conference (Weston A. Price foundation), she talks about the early days of her real food journey, and tells about her new business venture too. Maureen, and her daughters Erin and Abby, hope to reach more Christians:
For years, we have watched Christians struggle with their health. For years, we have also struggled with our own health issues. As we have searched for answers, we realize that the answers to our questions lay not in pills, surgeries and injections; but in God’s word.
Join us as we share the knowledge we have learned and follow the principles laid out in scripture, demonstrated throughout history, and validated by science – one meal at a time!
Check out their site here: GodsGoodTable.com. And wait 'til you hear about the events they're planning at Polyface Farm and at Rory Feek's homestead!

This kitchen experimentation was inspired by Maureen's delicious dessert at the chapter leader meeting on the first day of the conference.
