Last Organic Outpost Event – Get Fermented!

The Last OrganCAM00504ic Outpost is a hidden gem in the 5th ward of North Houston.  As you drive into the small neighborhood there is nothing to prepare you as you turn into this 2 acre lot full of warm, healthy soil, budding plants, thriving bees and caring hands. Walking into this place is like walking into a different world leaving the hustle and bustle of the city on your heals, awaiting your return. But for at least a little while, you are a farmer. Caring for your crops, clearing weeds, tending to the bees, cleaning and organizing the property, and preparing for another harvest.  You’re greeted with smiles and handshakes from Joe, the head farmer, and appreciation from all the other volunteers that keep this amazing place going.

Dr. Weston A. Price’s Research and Traditional Diets Presented at Great Oak School

Meeting at Great Oak SchoolHouston Real Food Nutrition, our new Meetup Group, had its first meeting Saturday, November 3, at the Great Oak School in Tomball, TX.  We were glad to see how interested the attendees were in improving their health through nutrition.  There were lots of questions and a very lively discussion of many topics, ranging from raw milk to fermented foods to dietary mineral absorption.  The meeting featured a video overview about the nutrition research of Dr. Weston A. Price (from the Nourishing Our Children series) and a slide show summary of the principles of traditional diets.  Dr. Price spent ten years traveling around the world to study the health and nutrition of people who were still eating their traditional diet.  He wanted to know if they were healthy and what they were eating.  He found a wide variety of diets that all included high levels of essential nutrients not found in the diets of ‘civilization.’   Read more (including more photos) at Real Food Houston.
