What is WAPF You Ask?
It's an organization that literally put my family's health back together!
Hal and I just got back from the WAPF conference (WAPF = Weston A. Price Foundation) a week ago and we are still on FIRE. It was absolutely AMAZING and re-invigorating. For instance: last year’s conference in Dallas had 1100 attendees. This year there were 1500, almost ONE THIRD MORE people. Wow. Word is getting out :)
We discovered WAPF when living in Costa Rica. We were low-fatters thinking that was healthy, ignoring the fact we were fatter than we’d ever been. Talk about cognitive dissonance, right? In 2009, we happened upon a gringo ice cream store and there was a brochure on table that said “Butter is a Superfood”. That was all it took: permission to eat butter! Our diets and lives took a complete 180 and here were are today, 100 pounds lighter between us, no meds (the average American our age takes 7+ meds a day) and upright. The only real difference between then and now is the quality of our food!
The WAPF is dedicated to teaching people about real food grown/raised as close to nature as possible. The 3 days of the conference were overflowing with like-minded people and so much good information. The vendor area was overflowing with info and fascinating healing products.
Catherine Austin Fitts was the keynote speaker, Dr. Kelly Brogan, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride (created the GAPS healing diet), Dr. Andrew Kaufman, Dr. Tom Cowan, Chris Masterjohn… well, click here to read up on the speakers. I plan to play the recordings at future meetups so YOU can get lit up too!!!
PS. Courtney Byron and I are the only WAPF KY chapter leaders at the moment and we are always looking for more of you. If you might want to be one, it’s SO EASY! Hit reply and I can fill you in!
PSS. When you join WAPF for $30/year, you get 4 quarterly journals, each over 100 pages, full of scientific and historical health information.
Is it FINALLY time to buy a freezer?
I don’t know about you but I’ve been “warned” about the coming TEOTWAKI food shortages so many times over the past couple of years, I’m NUMB. But here’s the thing: FOOD SHORTAGES COULD HAPPEN. So maybe it’s time to buy a freezer?
You can still get a good size one used at Mako Appliances in Lexington at 1995 Harrodsburg Rd or Danville. I have never regretted a freezer purchase. Then, each week, buy an extra pound or 2 of burger or sausage or a broiler. If you are looking for a 1/4-1/2-whole beef or hog, let me know and I can help you find it!
Food Club News
FRIDAY delivery this week — don’t forget! If you are picking up at Newton’s Attic, it’s a crazy Keeneland weekend so be prepared for traffic on that 2 mile stretch!
Where’s the Beef? Sorry I could not resist. Just updated our beef inventory so take a look and get an order in. Her beef goes fast at market (there are still a few going on) so please order asap and I can reserve for next week’s delivery!
Turkey Time! If you pre-ordered a turkey, we are almost there. When you placed your order, you paid for 12 pounds but they will likely be BIGGER. Last year they were 15 to 21 lbs and there’s just no way to know ahead of time… you can’t tell turkeys to stop growing. (Butterball can process anytime so manage weights that way.) But they were a huge hit — DELICIOUS! If you haven’t ordered, NOW is the time!
Delivery Thanksgiving week:
Turkeys will be delivered Thursday the 17th.
Thanksgiving orders are due Saturday before because…
Thanksgiving food delivery is Tues the 22nd!
PRICES - S’all good! All freeze-dried foods are marked down 20%. PLUS some prices have been adjusted DOWN over the last couple of weeks so take a look at your favs.
