I'm a big fan of Nora Gedgaudas and her book Primal Body Primal Mind. I've been looking forward to seeing her speak in person, so thank you to Jennifer Eidahl for the tip on this event. If anyone attending is up for it, maybe we can grab some coffee or tea afterward and chat.
Here's the New Renaissance Bookshop description on this event: "Dietary fat has been treated like a villain for the better part of the last century by medical authorities, the USDA and other mainstream nutritional authorities. Instead, dietary carbohydrates have been lauded as foundational to human dietary needs largely without question and now makes up the majority of mainstream dietary intake. Dietary fat is demonstrably central to our most basic energy, metabolic, neurological and physiologic needs and by restricting its intake we foster a much less healthy and unnatural dependence upon dietary sources of sugar and starch. Nora Gedgaudas is the author of the critically acclaimed international best-selling book, Primal Body, Primal Mind. She maintains a private practice in Portland, Oregon as both a Board-Certified nutritional consultant and a Board-Certified clinical Neurofeedback Specialist. Primalbody-primalmind.com/"
