That’s me in the left-hand corner of your screen, all cheery and eager and blissful. And that’s Ann Marie of Cheeseslave, Kelly of Kelly the Kitchen Kop and Kimberly of Harkeisonline, too – the real food blogs you should be reading if you aren’t already. You long-time real food lovers may remember that last year, I attended the conference with these gals. This year, not only will we be blogging the Weston A Price Foundation conference live, but we’ll also be speaking on one of my favorite topics: food activism through social media. Better yet, there’s plenty of opportunity to connect with real food lovers at the conference’s many breakfasts, lunches and dinners. So if you’ve been itching to have a sit-down, heart-to-heart or with some of your favorite real food bloggers or meet the cooks, moms and activists behind the screens, now is the time to make that happen – you can register for the conference online.
It’s about real food, plain and simple. It’s also about connection, and education and, of course, activism which is why leaders in the real and traditional foods movement will be speaking at the conference. Famed farmer Joel Salatin will be speak on the politics of food, while Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, will discuss traditional diets. Drs. Kaayla Daniel and Natasha Campbell-McBride will also speak, joining over forty other experts in traditional foods, real food and food politics as they come together for the three-day conference.
Nearly two thousand real food lovers are expected for the conference – doctors, nutritionists, holistic health practitioners, moms who want to feed their families well, farmers, ranchers, teachers, dentists, people who want to conceive healthy babies, people who want answers, people who just really dig good food and, of course, food bloggers will be attending. Wise Traditions provides this fantastic union of real food lovers; most importantly, those that may have felt isolated by their adherence to traditional foods can find common ground with other attendees. Farmers can learn about herd health, minimizing pathogenic risk and marketing opportunities. Food activists can reach one another, and we can all learn from the discussions, presentations and educational opportunities offered by the Weston A Price Foundation. This not-for-profit organization changed my life, as I know it can do for you if it hasn’t already.
I loved attending the conference last year, am honored to join fellow real food bloggers in speaking at it this year, and I urge you to register – for the full conference if you can, for even a day. But even if you can’t attend due to finances, know that you can still visit the exhibiting sponsors for free and that all of the recordings will be available after the conference.
