Enhance your purchase
It wasn't that many years ago that I didn't have a clue how to feed my family well. To be honest, it wasn't even on my radar to pay much attention to what I was feeding them, I just didn't think food made that big of a difference. It was all about what was cheap, what tasted good, and what was fast and convenient to throw together. Even though we struggled helping our kids in school, and there were behavioral issues that had us under constant stress, I still didn't make the connection.
Ironically, it wasn't until 2004 when I started to gain weight that I was led to what I now call my "food conversion", and all because a friend introduced me to the Weston Price Foundation. I clicked onto the WAPF website and as I started reading, the light bulbs in my brain clicked on, too. I learned that food is powerful. It can make us sick and miserable, or it can nourish us and give us energy and vitality!
It wasn't easy getting the family switched over.
There were many food flops and some complaining, but I eventually learned how to take our family favorite recipes and adapt them into much better-for-you versions. They TASTE so much better now too!
I also learned where to find the right foods—it was difficult for many years, but sourcing real food from the farm or finding the best foods at the grocery store is easier now, as long as you know what to look for.
I want to help you learn more quickly and without feeling overwhelmed like I did!
