Action Alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation: Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines
Deadline for comments April 8, 2015
The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has released its draft proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines, and they go even further than the previous ones in attacking nutritious foods like full-fat dairy, red meat, and any food with saturated fat.
The Dietary Guidelines form the basis of federal nutrition policy and food assistance programs, so the effects can be very far-reaching.

What you will learn about traditional diets:
–What kinds of foods are necessary for a nutrient-dense diet
–What kinds of foods should be avoided for the best health
–Which nutrients are essential
We hope you will join us for this year’s Farm & Food Leadership Conference on September 15-16 in Bastrop, Texas.

The Last Organic 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.

Houston is lucky this year! The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) has chosen Houston to be the location of one of their two regional conferences for 2014. The WAPF has one major international conference each year (last one was in Atlanta, November 2013) and two regional conferences. We don’t need to travel far to hear national speakers and learn more about eating traditional foods to promote good health.
Although there is much more to come, here is the information we have now about the program and the speakers.
