About

We’re the Houston-Galveston TX chapter of The Weston A. Price Foundation®, a 501(c)(3) nutrition education foundation with the mission of disseminating accurate, science-based information on diet and health. Named after nutrition pioneer Weston A. Price, DDS, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.

Chapter Leaders

Carolyn and Brice Biggerstaff began the chapter in January 2010.  They live in the Clear Lake City area of Houston. In addition to being co-leaders of the Houston WAPF chapter, they are members of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA), Farm   to Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and the Price-Pottenger   Nutrition Foundation (PPNF).  They enjoy eating grass-fed beef, meat from pastured animals, eggs from pastured chickens, local farmers’ market vegetables  and fruits, and, of course, raw milk, raw cream, and raw milk cheeses.  Read more about Carolyn . . .

Amy Robison was added as a co-leader in 2013.  She found the Weston A. Price Foundation and  learned how to heal herself from digestive and reflux health problems.  She has completed certification as a Holistic Nutrition Consultant at Hawthorne University.  Read more about Amy . . .

    Thanks for the information.
    Do you hold monthly meetings?
    Co you have an events calendar?

      Michael,

      We don’t have regular meetings although that’s a possibility for the future. Adding an events calendar is a good idea. I’ll look into that. The only chapter event currently scheduled is the Houston Gluten-Free Expo February 4 where we will have a booth.

    This is fniicaatsng!!! I seem to have issues with pasteurized milk but am not officially lactose intolerant because cheese doesn’t make me sick. Recently, I stayed at a dairy farm and I could drink the milk. What is it in pasteurized milk that makes me sick?Also, until reading this, I always thought that unpasteurized milk was unsafe to drink. Thanks so much for including the statistics here on the safety of raw milk and enlightening me.Best of luck to y’all in your fight to protect your natural, unpolluted sources of milk. Go Team Farmers!!!

  3. This seems quite interesting. We’ll be sure to follow. Do you ever host events in Houston?

    • Carolyn says:

      Thanks for the interest. The next scheduled event will be a seminar at the Great Oaks School in early November–more details to come. Others are in works and will be posted on the website. I will be contacting you for more information about your organic restaurant.

  8. There have been several comments submitted promoting FoodSniffr which probably indicates that they are spam. Since FoodSniffr claims to have healthy snack foods, I wanted to list some problems with the website. Although some of the foods listed on FoodSniffr would be acceptable in a nutritious, whole food diet, some very important nutrient dense foods are not included.

    Foods are nutrient-dense when they contain lots of fat soluble vitamins, like A, D, E, and K, plus protein and minerals. My first choices for nutrient-dense foods would probably be liver, followed by eggs and whole milk. Read here for more information about the nutrients in liver. For more information about the nutrients in eggs, especially the yolks, read here.

    It seems that all of the listings on FoodSniffr are vegan or vegetarian. For more information about the health risks of a vegetarian diet, read here.
