A group for those interested in leading a healthy and enjoyable life! Real whole food is delicious and good for you, and it should be fun to prepare and eat with friends and family. Learn about what "real food" is and why it is so important for our health.
We are focused on helping people eat fresh whole foods on a local and sustainable scale as much as possible. We will help you to avoid foods that are not good for you such as highly-processed foods, sugary foods, refined carbohydrates, and bad oils, among others. Thus following the basic principals of Dr. Weston A. Price.
This is a journey for all of us so whatever the goals are all are welcome. Whether you are looking to lose weight in a healthy, sustainable and enjoyable way or trying to feed your children a more nutrient-dense diet or even just trying to eat less fast food, this group is for you.
Our goal is health in a realistic and holistic sense. We are always trying to find ways to make eating real food more economical, more convenient and more fun. We welcome those faced with time and financial constraints and those who have come up with creative solutions for eliminating barriers to eating a healthy diet.
We hold regular informational meetings and hands-on food preparation workshops. Also, we sometimes hold film-screenings or have guest speakers on the topics of real foods, sustainable agriculture, seasonal and local eating, food politics, and nutrition. Potlucks, farm visits and community volunteer projects are also on the calendar.
Our goal is to create a dynamic community of lovers of food, health and life who are willing to grow and learn and share with others looking for happiness and holistic health in our homes and in the greater community.
