Join Us for “WAPF-Wednesday” Potluck & Grains Demo!

Hi all,

This is a reminder that our December potluck is this Wednesday!  The snow was fun, but I am glad we can get back to driving easily and carry on with our events as planned, and here is our next event:

Wednesday, December 18, 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)

Phone:  Jan’s number is 541-343-4404

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.

Bring a vegetarian friend!

Although the potluck will hopefully have several non-vegetarian dishes (made with nutrient-dense meats, bone broth and animal fats), this would be a great topic to introduce to your vegetarian friends.  People who avoid the use of animal foods in particular need to make sure they are maximizing their nutrition from the grains, nuts, seeds and legumes they eat, as they tend to rely more heavily on these foods.

Foundations of Health – Class 4 – Healthy Grains

Is Gluten the real “Bad Guy” or is it phytates?  Anti-nutrients found in all grains, nuts, seeds and legumes can wreak havoc on your digestive tract and de-mineralize bones; yet popular nutritional advice ignores this problem.    Here in the Willamette Valley, there is a growing movement to grow more local grains and beans, but how do we safely consume them?  Come learn how important this is to your health and the health of your family.

We will be sampling and showing how to make:

  • Traditional Sourdough bread
  • English Muffins
  • Yogurt Dough for pastries
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Crispy nuts
  • Nut milks
  • and more…

For those that are gluten-free we are including an awesome seed crackers, grain free brownies and cheesecake recipe. O’boy, what a treat!
