Sally Fallon Morell, author of “Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats” will be in Vermont for three days of programs that focus on the importance of organic farming, pasture-fed livestock and a diet of traditional foods. Morell is the founding president of The Weston A. Price Foundation and a founder of A Campaign for Real Milk.
On Thursday, June 7 at 7 pm., Morell will give a lecture called “The Oiling of America/The Cholesterol Myths” at Main Street Landing Theater in Burlington. She will address the consequences of abandoning a traditional foods diet and the connection with chronic disease.
On Friday, June 8 there will be a workshop on the subject of “REAL Milk” at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School on Harbor Road in Shelburne from 9 to 11 am. Morell will lead an interactive workshop on the safety, health benefits, and economics of raw milk as the cornerstone of a traditional diet. An open discussion will welcome questions from milk producers, people making products from raw milk and those wanting to know more about this versatile food.
On Friday afternoon from 1 to 5 pm, there will be a seminar on “Traditional Diets” at the Coach Barn at Shelburne Farms. This will be an exploration of the importance of animal fats and other elements for a healthy traditional diet, based on the pioneering work of Dr. Weston A. Price.
Saturday’s lecture by Morell will be at Burlington High School from 9 am to 2 pm. Entitled “Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner,” the program will focus on getting started with a traditional diet including suggestions for no-fuss, economical meals. In the afternoon there will be hands-on demonstrations by local producers and chefs.
