  2. Laree Kline says:

    Oh so many that are already listed — especially Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. But want to a couple new favorites of mine to the list:
    Nora Gedgaudas: PrimalBody-PrimalMind.com
    The Nutritional Therapist Association (follow WAP principles)

  3. 1.Meg and Arden of Windsor Dairy in Windsor, Colorado are heroes. They own an organic dairy where I get my raw dairy, oxtail, organ meats, eggs and whole chickens.
    2. Sally Fallon is my hero.

    The more I learn about eating traditionally, the more I’m sure to have!

  4. Particularly helpful to me in trying to transition to real food are the bloggers. To name just a few, Hartke (of course), Kelly the Kitchen Kop, Cheeseslave, Food Renegade, Kitchen Stewardship, and Naturally Knocked Up.

    I’ve found Nina Planck’s books to be inspirational and a good guide to how to move through the beginning stages of finding and eating real food. I should also credit Barbara Kingsolver and Michael Pollan, since I never would have known about real food without their books.

  5. Kimberly Hartke says:

    My Daily Reading List - Real Food Media
    First Resource Checked in an Emergency - Shonda Parker and “Naturally Healthy”
    Membership - La Leche League
    Membership - American Farmland Trust

    .-= Local Nourishment´s last blog ..Million Pound Beef Recall =-.

  7. My local farmers.

  8. Hero - Christine Solem of Charlottesville, Va, who never takes any credit but has donated cash and enormous amounts of time to VICFA, NICFA and farms in trouble with the authorities.

    Hero - Dick Stevens, who has donated a lot of time quietly to fighting NAIS.

    Heros, more public - Walter Jeffries and Joel Salatin, who aren’t afraid to write about the government stepping on the privacy and property rights of ordinary citizens who are doing nothing wrong.

    Resource - Nourishing Traditions, which has more good information packed in the sidebars than many books have cover to cover!

  9. I forgot a couple!

    Heros: Greg Niewendorp of Michigan and Linda Faillace of Vermont, both of whom faced USDA and State Ag agents with dignity and have used the experience to constructively educate others on how our government works. Linda, especially, could be a very bitter woman, but she’s not and her book Mad Sheep is an eloquent testimonial to the power of a good marriage and a community support to help one recover from incomprehensible injustice.
