Amanda Love, the Barefoot CookIn the trenches at a Nourishing Foods Workshop
Amanda Love is a nutritionist that offers workshops, makes nutrient dense tea and speaks around the country about nourishing foods. From her website: "Every bite of food we take has already created an impact on our mother earth, our fellow human, animal and plant friends and on our air, soil and water. What we put into our bodies becomes the foundation of our health. When we nourish ourselves with organic, local, seasonal, fresh, nutrient dense food that has been lovingly and consciously raised and prepared we are making a choice to nourish not only our bodies, but also our minds, our spirits, our communities and our future generations."
She discussed with us at the workshop the findings on Weston A. Price who did studies about tooth health and malnutrition. From their website: "The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price, whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats."
