Moving Your Family Toward Weston A. Price Diet
by Kimberly Hartke, Publicist Weston A. Price Foundation
After speaking at a farm this weekend, I got a call today from a mom who wants to improve her family’s diet. She asked for advice on baby steps her busy family can take to begin following the Weston A. Price Foundation dietary guidelines .
Here is what I came up with (just off the top of my head), but I would love to have reader comments on this, because I hope she will check out the blog!
Ten Baby Steps to a Healthier Family Diet
Step 1: Nix cereal and switch to eggs, Canadian bacon or homemade lamb sausage for breakfast
Step 2: Soaked granola, oatmeal, pancakes on occasion for variety (extra pancake batter makes wonderful homemade crackers)
Step 3: Find a source for unhomogenized whole milk and butter (you are looking for a local product here, sometimes farmers markets will have this) or, better yet, raw milk
Step 4: Make your own salad dressings using olive oil, ditch the store-bought
Step 5: Everywhere you go pack healthy snacks, such as, raw cheese, crispy nuts, beef sticks, fresh fruit–no more fast food drive thru’s!
Step 6: Substitute herbal ice teas for sodas –make in large quantities and put in bottles for travel
Step 7: Don’t allow any more processed foods in the front door
Step 8: Clean out your pantry, trash or donate to a food shelter all the things you know are on the Foods to Avoid list
Step 9: Cook all meals from scratch using whole ingredients–your crockpot will be your best friend!
Step 10: Subscribe to (or follow on facebook or twitter) http://realfoodmedia.com, the traditional foods blogging network.
