Foundations of Health – Class One

Class One: The Foundations

What Constitutes a Healthy Diet?

Food fads come and go, leaving many people confused about nutrition. Dr. Weston Price found that traditional cultures worldwide share fundamental dietary principles that establish and maintain health. When people understand the science behind traditional wisdom, they can make educated decisions.

Educate Your Friends and Family

Does your sister not understand Weston A. Price cooking principles? Does Uncle Harry ask “Why do you guys eat so much butter?” Or Aunt Minn ask you “Why go to all the trouble to make sauerkraut when you can just buy it in a jar?” Now’s your chance!!

The Foundations of Health Series starts soon and they can all come! Download the attached flyer and trifold brochure for the Foundations of health class series.  Encourage your friends and relatives to attend!

Something for Everyone!

The prices have been kept deliberately low to encourage more participation.  Only $7.50/hr for all 16 hours of education, tasting, and demonstrations!  Where can you beat that bargain?!  Even if you think you know this stuff, come anyway.  There will be plenty of great samples and demonstrations of new recipes we have never offered before.
