Great Children’s Book: The Adventures of Andrew Price!

 

Andrew-Price-Plane-2

Love traditional food? (You must, if you are reading my blog!) Ever wonder how to explain the importance of nutrient-dense food to children in a way that is fun and informative? Here’s the answer! The Adventures of Andrew Price is a wonderful children’s book that does just that. In this book, the fictitious great-great-nephew of Dr. Weston A. Price follows in his footsteps and discovers how traditional societies nourished themselves for optimal health. Sandrine Love, founder of Nourishing Our Children, collaborated with Mohammad Naser to publish the book. Simply Being Well is a proud sponsor of the book because I love the idea of helping to spread the importance of nourishing, traditional food to children.

Full Circle!

I was so thrilled to hear that The Adventures of Andrew Price went to Africa! Feels like the teaching has come full circle! The book (the great-great-nephew) followed in his great-great-uncle Weston A. Price’s footsteps, returning to the place where much of Weston Price’s research about traditional diets was done. How cool is that?! I think it is very cool. Read on to hear how Andrew Price got to Africa!

Hilda Labrada Gore, host of the Weston A. Price Foundation’s podcast series and a local chapter leader, has made two trips to Africa thus far on behalf of the Foundation. Her intention has been to inspire those she met to take an interest in their own traditional diets and to teach about what Dr. Price observed when he traveled to Africa himself.

While in Kenya, Hilda visited an orphanage and school called By Grace. Those she visited have cows and drink raw milk from the cows. Their diet is a mix of traditional and so-called modern foods. Hilda read The Adventures of Andrew Price with the intention to teach the students and teachers about the value of their traditional diet. Above is a photo of Hilda at the school with the book.

Book Review

Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, and author of several books, including Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats has purchased copies of The Adventures of Andrew Price for her grandchildren and written a Thumbs Up Book Review of the book!

Check out these Testimonials!

“The minute The Adventures of Andrew Price arrived, we opened it right away and began to read it. It’s my son’s new favorite book and has opened a lot of discussion of grassfed milk and how we want to protect ourselves against cavities. So happy about this book, I hope more are to come … maybe a story about kids who eat their liver and cod liver oil! I could use a book like that! My son is five. When his friend came over to play, he was excited to show him the gallon of grass-fed milk we had in the fridge!” – Erika

“What a wonderful book. I pre-ordered this book before it was written and was thrilled to pick up my copy at the Weston A Price Foundation’s annual conference in November.  I was not disappointed!   It’s a beautifully bound hard cover book that is colorful and engaging.  It is a great way to introduce the next generation to the timeless principles discovered by Dr. Price.   It is not easy taking on such a in-depth volume, such as Dr. Price’s Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, and succinctly summarizing the important points in a way that is relevant and understandable to children, yet the author, Sandrine Love, does just that.  She not only summarized the diets of traditional people that Dr. Price studied, but also the consequences of not eating a traditional diet.  I highly recommend this book for children of all ages.

Combine it with the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children and you have the ultimate duo for beginners of all ages to not only understand, but to implement a traditional foods lifestyle.” – Barbara Geatches

“I read The Adventures of Andrew Price to my 4 year old boy, and was very impressed with the book – it’s beautifully illustrated, and the story is both entertaining and instructive. While reading about the dietary changes that occurred to various cultures as they became more modern, I asked my son what he thought happened to the people. He immediately said: “They got cavities!” I was so proud of him for making the connection, and grateful for such a beautiful book. It speaks to children a lot more than all the lectures we parents can give them!” – Joanna Leyla

5 Stars

“The story told by Andrew Price is appealing to both young and old.  My 3 year old is now very concerned with unnatural ‘holes in his teeth’, or cavities, and reading it gives me a great opportunity to teach him about the importance of eating real food.  We have read it many times over.  My husband also learned new information from the book!  It is a darling book with fantastic illustrations.” – Jenny Moreland

5 Stars

I was at the Wise Traditions conference in Anaheim and this book was selling like hotcakes! I understand why. It is a perfect way to educated children (and adults) about Weston A. Price’s travels and discoveries. And it’s inspiring! When you turn the last page, you are ready to go out and eat well to be well (and to tell others about nourishing foods, to boot)! – Hilda Labrada Gore

“Real Food 101″, aka,”Real Food for Dummies” or Top 5 Things You Can Do for Your Health

I have been meeting many people along the way on our trip across the country from Maryland to Wyoming and Colorado and back again. We have passed through Maryland, PA, WV, OH,  IN, IL, IO, NE, WY, CO, SD, MN, WI, and now we are on our way to IN and MI. In addition to everyone I met and had the privilege of teaching at my Cooking for Well-Being conference in Colorado, I am having wonderful conversations with folks about real food and good health. All sorts of people are being introduced to Nourishing Traditions and the Weston A. Price Foundation, realmilk.com, the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund and the Nourishing Our Children Campaign. Makes me so happy to be spreading the good word about all this good food!

My husband Franklin Taggart calls me an “inspirer”: someone who calls people to realize what they are capable of…and shows them that they “have the goods to do what they need to do”. I must say I love to inspire people to good health, good food, and help to provide them with the tools, techniques and resources to “take their power back”: their power to eat well and be well…to decide where they purchase their food and from whom (from the Food Industrial Complex with all of its implications for the health of the people and the Earth or from farmers, farmers markets, CSAs, etc etc) …(Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm has been reminding us that we “vote with our pocketbooks” when we choose our food. Who are you/we voting for today?!)

So along the way I have had questions from friends, family and acquaintances which are really  the same question: “what can I do that would be easy *and* high impact?” So I have come up with the top 5 things anyone can do that are simply a “switcheroo”, involve no training or classes, or menu changes. Just swap what you are using now with the following, and the nutrient density of your food will go up. In my private practice with clients of all ages and in my own life, I have seen hunger decrease,  thought become less foggy, children become more focused, weight drop off, and cholesterol levels beautify. (For information on the cholesterol myth, see Uffe Ravnskov, The Cholesterol Myth as well as Dr. Mercola’s Huffington Post article on the same.)

And so, the top five:

1. Use real salt. Throw out that Morton’s salt and purchase some salt that is high in trace minerals. Celtic Sea Salt from the Grain and Salt Society is highest in trace minerals, so I use that. Just check out the label…all “sea salt” is not the same. If they can tell you about the trace mineral content on the label, you’ve got a good one.

2. Use pastured eggs. Swap out supermarket eggs, free range eggs, organic eggs, or eggs fed “vegetarian feed” for eggs from hens *on pasture*. Buy them from a farmer or the farmer’s market, or from your CSA. Chickens are omnivores; the most nutritious eggs will be those from hens that eat a good amount of bugs! (Just check the color of the yolks…eggs from chickens that eat bugs are bright, deep orange…if your yolks are light yellow or the whites runny, they *are not* nutrient dense eggs!)

3. Use pastured butter, aka, butter from cows that eat grass. Don’t rest on your laurels and think the term “organic butter” is enough. “Organic” says nothing about whether the cows ate grass. Look for “pasture butter” from Organic Valley, or Trickling Springs Farm in the DC metro area. Look for butter at the farmers market , or get some *real cream* and make your own. (Butter has the perfect fatty acid profile. Stop slurping that fish oil and pile on the good old fashioned grass-fed butter!)

4. (If you eat bread at all) Eat sprouted bread or a true sourdough bread. There are several brands on the market that make sprouted bread, sprouted bagels, sprouted English muffins. Find a baker that makes real sourdough, or make it yourself! (Be sure you slather on the pastured butter, as it will help to neutralize the rest of the phytic acid that has not been neutralized by sprouting. For more on phytic acid, see  Living with Phytic Acid)

5.Eat grass-fed meat and poultry. The nutrient profile is very different for meat and poultry that is raised on pasture. Far more nutritious for you, better for the animal and for the planet. (All meat is not the same–comparing meat from animals raised in the Food Industrial Complex with meat from animals raised on pasture is like comparing apples and oranges–)

Okay, that’s the beginning. We’ll call it  “real food for dummies” or, “real food 101”. I am not going to go into fresh, raw milk at this time, as so many people in our country do not have access to it. (To find out about the state of raw milk in your state, check out the map on the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund’s website or check out www.realmilk.com) I am not going to go into fermentation or soaking your beans and grains, or making your own stock. That’s for level 2. Take it easy. Go slowly. One step at a time.
