Dec 18: Potluck – Grains & Seeds Demo

6:00 to 8:00 PM

Location:

At the home of Jan
1389 Washington St, Eugene
yellow house, east side of Washington
(access 13th, 15th, 18th)

Topic & Demo: Preparation of Grains, Nuts, Seeds and Legumes

One of the key principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation principles is the proper preparation of grains, nuts, seeds and legumes.  Traditional people took great care with the preparation of grains and seeds.  The seeds of plants naturally contain “anti-nutrients”.  By neutralizing these before consuming them we can improve their digestion and absorption.

Gluten containing grains (such as wheat and rye), gluten-free grains (such as rice, and corn), as well as nuts, and seeds that are used in place of grains (such as quinoa, amaranth, and teff) all need careful preparation in order to maximize nutrition.

November 20: Potluck and Sweets Demo

Wednesday, Nov 20, 2013
6:00 to 8:00 PM

Location:
At the home of Jan
1389 Washington St, Eugene
yellow house, east side of Washington
(access 13th, 15th, 18th)

Topic & Demo:
Our topic for this month is Natural Sweeteners. Since we are now in the midst of the “season of sugar” (from Halloween through Valentine’s Day!) it seems like a good time to discuss natural sweeteners.  The Weston Price diet is not one of deprivation, but quality does count.  How can you enjoy natural sweetness without the awful refined sweeteners, artificial colors and flavors that they put into commercial sweets?  Make your own or know how to find quality sweets.  Discussion will include: What are the natural sweeteners, which are available locally, which ones to use and what to avoid?  For our demo I (Lisa) will make a natural candy.
