Every Thursday, beginning this week through Aug. 23, health-conscious cooks are invited to Noble Breads to view a free online class presented by Sally Fallon Morell, "Nourishing Traditional Diets: The Key to Vibrant Health."
The class lasts from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
According to the class' release, "Animal fats, properly prepared whole grains, enzyme-enriched foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of "Nourishing Traditions," explains why you need these foods, too. Beginning with a presentation of Dr. Weston Price's unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Sally explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets that conferred beauty, strength and complete freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods - foods that your family will actually eat - back into your diet, including easy breakfast cereals, soups, snack foods, high enzyme condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you."
