You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when you consider a can of sardines to be fast food! I want to attend the conference this year to see the presentation on traditional diets and the rest of the line up! I have never been before and am excited for this opportunity. I am also interested in the focus on children and pregnancy. I’d love to eat nourishing foods without having to bring my own salt!
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie Family when your 9 year old son says “bone marrow…now that’s something to fight over!”.
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie family when your 5 little kids start crying because the chicken bones are all gone.
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie family when your babies first word is “bucha”.
Oh man I can’t even describe in words how much I would love to take my family to this conference! I am only alive today because of turning to healing foods and natural medicine. I want my 5 children to grow up helping to change the world through the knowledge of good nutrition. Their life is already different then mine and as we continue to spur on the children of this next generation we will see the world change.
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie when you can’t go out to eat with kids or by yourself and peacefully enjoy the meals at restaurants. I have 2 kids, and they look at the children’s menus. I feel like the kids are being held captive to SAD diet and forced to make bad choices at every restaurant. Even the restaurants that serve lots of fish, serve no fish on kids menus. Why is it that way, and what would it take to make a change? Once I went to a big fancy buffet style brunch about 10 years ago when my first child was just born and saw lots of fancy food around us in a huge room full of ice sculptures and colors. When I looked at where the kids were going, my heart sank – many were lining up by a table that had stuff all in one color, beige, and above it was a big font label stating it was a children’s table. I can not forget that moment since I realized what I will be up against with my kids growing up. I still often talk to most restaurant waiters and managers about improving kids menus or at least adding fish as an option, not just everything fried&beige on the kids menu. I would like to learn more among the like minded people at a conference and beyond and somehow help to start or continue making the change in the world of public eating and schools (I know it is an uphill battle with the forces involved in school nutrition). Maybe somebody already is working on this? How can I join in and help our children eat well in public places? What would it look like? Maybe it is this way only in Midwest? I am not a nurse or dietitian, I am a simple human being and a mom who tries to nourish the family and live a healthy life. I feel that adults are having more and more choices now at the restaurants, still not enough, but there has been some positive change since 10 years ago when I had to carry an avocado with me to every restaurant and event. You are what you eat – so simple and so profound.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you’re drinking Kombucha, eating sprouted einkorn wheat bread with raw butter and honey spread, while signing up for the conference!
My husband and I have been so excited about the conference. I’m a midwife student and he is a big into gardening. We both see so much on the schedule that will help us on our current journey we are on! This will be our first conference and we are so glad that it is coming to Alabama!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you serve butter like it’s cheese to your toddler.
I’ve only attended one conference before, but am looking to up my game in the traditional foods and cooking sphere. We have five young children who could all benefit from nourishing foods. My hope is to provide that for our family without losing my sanity or sacrificing relationships in the process. Thank you for the chance to win a trip to Alabama!
Hi Nicole, I just wanted to be sure it was clear that they are offering the full registration, but the travel is not included.
That’s fine, I wouldn’t complain! :)
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you see a food you have never tried and imagine how to picle it! I wish I was kidding! I would like to attemnd because we never have, and we have ignored our health and our diet for financial reasons this year. I think attending and getting info and connecting with other people prioritizing their food would helo me get inspired.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you carry raw butter around in your purse!
I would like to attend the conference this year because I love the community, I’m inspired by all the like minded people, the food is amazing, and of course the great speakers!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you are powdering your amazing biodynamic, pasture raised egg shells and adding them to your sourdough, and when you stick a big kefir grain in your vagina in early labour, and when you make kefir with your own breast milk, and when you are always using all the bones from every meal you make to make stock then giving them to the dog and your back yard looks like a grave site!
I would love to come to the conference because I have wanted to go every year, and still haven’t made it. I am wanting to open a Sauerkraut business focusing on foraged weeds and NZ natives.
I love the “big kefir grain in your vagina in early labour” … that is the first time I’ve heard that one!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you go after bones and drink your broth!
I would love to go to the conference since all the teachings of Weston A. Price and the WAPF have helped me tremendously in regaining (most of) my health and in turn trying to help others accomplish that as well!
1. You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you drive 200 km each Wednesday to pick-up your raw milk for the week.
2. My family attended each exceptionally valuable annual WAPF conference since we became members 5 years ago. We were saddened to realize that our budget does not allow it this year. It would be a blessing if I was surprised with the free full conference registration for this year. I found every WAPF conference enormously valuable. They give us the opportunity to expend our knowledge, visit with the known and new exhibitors and reconnect with like minded WAPF “family” members from all over the world while savoring a great conference meals together.
My daughters always enjoyed the children program and since the older one already “worked” as a helper with younger children last year she was hoping to repeat the experience this year.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when Fast Food is thought of as an avocado or cold, baked sweet potato.
I would like to go to the conference to be with like minded people. I would also enjoy learning new things on the topics I love. I have fond memories when Sally came to Denver (I helped organize and did a talk on fermentation) in 2006. And best of all I would get to meet Sandrine, who has been an online friend for a long time. Not to mention the food, there will be food – right? :)
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you convert people in the checkout line to buy pastured raised eggs.
I’m a natural chef in Northern California and honor the principles of Weston A. Price to the core. As I grow my business I want to stay current on the literature and meet a community of people who share the same food values. Attending the Wise Traditions conference would be a powerful tool and a huge growth opportunity for me personally and professionally, and will allow me to spread the good word more effectively to my people.
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when…the first thing that comes out of your mouth when someone asks you something food related, and you ask, “Have you ever heard of Dr. Weston A. Price?!” I’m not kidding!
I echo the comments of many of my like-minded countrymen above: I have never been to a WAPF conference, even though I received the monumental book for my 21st birthday (I guess trying to finish my undergraduate, graduate, and dietetic internship schooling got in the way a bit)…and I would love to go to make many, many connections with people who value very similar things and see what I can offer to our cause! I am ESPECIALLY interested in the vaccination track, after having seen the movie Vaxxed several times, and having met Del Bigtree, Alan Phillips and Polly in person. I’d be excited to meet Andrew Wakefield in person as well!
I’m also very interested in the Pregnancy track; one of my most passionate areas of study is pre-, during, and post-pregnancy, and what can be done to ensure children grow up healthy and strong.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you render your own lard.
I work in the food industry and I would love to attend the WAPF conference so that I can bring new knowledge learned at the conference to a wider audience. I love attending local WAPF chapter meetings so I can only imagine the energy, knowledge and resources available at the national conference. Attending would fulfill a longtime dream.
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when you make your own tallow and eat the fat crunchies left behind 😄
I would LOVE to be considered as I am pregnant with my third child and feel like I have so much to learn! My husband has been on the gaps diet the past year and my little one is dealing with eczema. I would love to learn how we can nourish and heal our family even more. 💙
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when the person in front of you at the fish counter is having the skin removed from their wild caught salmon and ask for it for your next batch of broth. And it doesn’t seem a strange thing to do.
I would like to attend Wise Traditions this year because it has been a number of years since I have attended one. It’s a good time to catch up with fellow WAP’ers, try some great food, and learn some new things. I love that vaccines are getting a lot of exposure this year. The vendors are always amazing. I would love to attend Wise Traditions just to share space with like minded people. It gets tiresome always being the odd one.
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie family when your children assume that milk should be shaken before drinking.
I’m particularly intrigued with the weight loss/diabetes class. I was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I have a pretty good diet (not perfect) but need to lose some weight. I’d like to investigate this more and learn more about how to eat great and lose the weight.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when your baby eats liver like it’s ice cream.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when your dog’s food raises its own pasture-raised chickens.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you use LSD: Lard, Starters, and (raw) Dairy!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when spring comes: Maple Syrup, Butter, and Eggs, oh my!
I’ve never been to a WAPF conference, but I’d love to attend since I am starting a pregnancy & birth coaching business based around spiritual connection & organic traditional foods. In college I discovered Weston A. Price after researching about George Catlin and his time living with the Native Americans, and since then I have been fascinated by traditional diets and self-care. When I became pregnant, with my now 17-month old, I felt the dramatic positive impact of upping my adherence to a traditional foods diet, now that I was caring more for myself as I carried another–which led to a whole new relationship to caring for myself, as well!
I always tell other mothers how I loved being pregnant because I felt like a powerful fertility goddess, and the reaction I get the most is, “You’re crazy! I felt like crap during MY pregnancy!” I really think my traditional foods diet is what kept me feeling so good, like nothing much was different, which allowed me to tap into an emotional and spiritual transformation of pregnancy. And I even have hypothyroidism, which usually creates complications to conceive and during pregnancy, but I had none, and you can thank heaven but you also have to thank my more traditional diet! I ate so much liverwurst while pregnant that my midwife remarked on how I had the best iron levels of anyone she had ever seen!
But I think a lot of women miss out on this spiritual connection & emotionally transformative part of pregnancy, because their bodies are driving them crazy, trying to tell them what they need by giving them strange cravings and symptoms. With the knowledge of traditional diets like WAP, you eliminate a lot of deficiencies, and thus, because your body is nourished, you have the energy and awareness to connect within on a deeper emotional & spiritual level with your little one.
While I feel that this is a passionate calling for me, I’ve really only just realized it in the time since giving birth, so I’m right at the beginning of my career journey. I would love to attend the WAP conference to meet other like-minded individuals to inspire, enlighten, and teach me as I piece together a program to help women understand the power of traditional nutrition for their babies, their pregnancies, and themselves! <3
You know you are a wise traditions foodie when you get excited about your children asking for more butter on their bread, or if they can drink a cup of raw cream. I would love to go to the conference this year because I have never been to one before. After having struggled to apply GAPS in our home for years, I have realized that our bodies are craving more diversity in our diets and am trying to implement Weston’s principles of nutrition into our daily lives without feeling like I am stuck in the kitchen all day. I want to meet some like minded parents who can share some tips and new recipes.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you go through 10 lbs of butter a month. I would love to attend the conference because I teach nutrition at a major university and I’m working against the tide to change the status quo on campus!
What nutrition class do you teach at what major university!? :)
I teach intro nutrition at the University of Oklahoma
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when your children’s favorite snack is fermented pickles and creamy, chicken liver pate!
I would LOVE the opportunity to attend the conference this November to help me gather more information to share with my parent community. Working as an educator in the Calgary separate school district has made me realize the lack of knowledge families have when it comes to nourishing their children’s bodies. My heart aches when I see children open their lunch kits to snack on fruit roll ups, lunchables, wagon wheels and juice boxes! When we talk about the different food groups the children look at me like I’m from another planet because their fruit cup doesn’t fit into the fruits and vegetables group. I am appalled at the behaviors that come through my classroom door, each year doubling the year before. I want my own children to grow up understanding what their bodies need to be “healthy and strong” but I am so worried that all our efforts are for nothing for as they enter into the world of public education the external influences may be to great:(
Is there hope for my children to be healthy and strong? for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren to understand? I pray for hope!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your Standard American Diet family looks at your groceries and says you only have ingredients. I’d love to go because it has been a really rough year and sometimes I feel alone in my natural health lifestyle choices and I’d love to connect with other like-minded people.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you mention Weston A Price whenever anyone asks you about nutrition and you know more about nutrition than most people especially all your docs. I also can’t wait for the wonderful food at the (November) conference — whichever year’s conference, the food is amazing. That’s not the only reason I want to attend. I want to hear many of the talks, especially listen to and meet Del Bigtree and Dr. Andrew Wakefield, see Vaxxzd with like-minded people. I want to purchase some of the great food in the food court to take home.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you save veggie scraps and bone scraps to make an amazing and healthy broth. I have never attended a WAPF conference and would love the chance to spend the weekend with like minded people. Learning in person as opposed to reading it on blogs would be an amazing experience. It would also be so fun to taste someone elses WAPF like food rather than always only eating my own. We are a military family so we are always moving around and this year the conference is close but right now in life the cost is a bit prohibitive. To win a ticket would be amazing!!
You know you are a wise traditions foodie when you can’t resist buying “just a few” more jars to support your sprouting/fermentation habit. Friends think you are conducting wild experiments in your kitchen, garage, cabinet — anywhere with a flat surface! Colorful jars full of bubbling brine and sprouting grains are constantly rotating through the countertops to your belly. I would like to attend this year primarily for the vaccination talks. As a native Californian, I am horrified at the new law that mandates vaccination without consent. My three kids are going to be kicked out of school in a couple of years due to the law and I would like to learn more about my options. Of course, the food is a big draw for me as well!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your friends ask “whats that smell?” and you proudly start describing this awesome recipe you are trying for your new and improved Kimchi.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you stopped looking at coupons since none of real food can be found there.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you serve bone broth to your family in the morning instead of a coffee!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you tell them no on children’s menu at the restaurants and go directly to wild caught fish and extra serving of veggies on the menu, extra plates, and share it with kids!
I would love love love to go to conference, since I love learning and real food is my passion. But many times there is no support at all, I would love to meet likeminded people and bring them into my Wise inner circle. Thank you so much
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your family call with orders for bone broth at the beginning of “cold and flu” season.
I attended the Wise Traditions conference in Indianapolis and it absolutely changed my life. I am now pregnant and understanding that the path for a Wise Traditions Foodie in mainstream Alabama can feel like a lonely one. It is wonderful to be surrounded by like-minded people who are nourishing themselves and their families without giving in to outside pressures. Vaccination is a topic that ways heavily on my mind and I want to be well educated and ready when the time comes to have these conversations with my doctor about my choices for myself and my baby. The schedule for this year’s conference is incredible and so relevant for moms and moms-to-be. It would be an honor to attend.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you carry your own salt and saiad dressing with you.
I can’t imagine not attending the WAPF conference. I learn so much every year. It feels much like a family reunion as I reconnect with like minded people every year. I would love to win a registration as this year the cost is a bit overwhelming…. my 16 year old daughter has decided she would like to attend the conference with me. How can I say no to that?!?! I think it will be a bit overwhelming for her (at least it was for me the first couple of years) but I know she is going to get such a great foundation and learn so much (from someone other than mom!). And it looks like another amazing year of incredible speakers!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you buy smoked salmon collars and eat them whole for the omega-3s (meat, skin) and minerals (bones).
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you try to turn random strangers onto pasture-raised eggs, duck fat, and pork skins in the market aisles.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you slather your dry skin with the same tallow that sautéed your veggies.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you have a small city of mason jars in your pantry, waiting for the next fermentation project.
I would be so thrilled to attend WT again, having volunteered at Santa Clara 2012 (closer to home) and derived incredible insights and inspiration for my health recovery (hypothyroidism, HPA Axis dysregulation, eating disorder). Thanks so much for being advocates for TRUE nourishment!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you put a SCOBY in your vitamix and feed it to your plants and your dog..
As a new WAPF Chapter Leader and having never attended a conference before, I would absolutely love to meet the people I have been corresponding with via the internet as well as be surrounded by people with similar interests. How often is it that you can actually talk about smearing lard on a piece of sourdough bread that just came out of the oven!! Also, the lineup of speakers is mind-blowing!! Lastly, as a new grandma, I would love to learn more about how to nourish my granddaughter with nutrient-dense foods..
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you went from being a 25 year long vegeterian to consuming grass fed sources of meat and dairy after hearing a presentation by Sally Fallon Morrell and then immediately buying two of her books.
I would like to attend your conference this year because I’m a hospital nurse and have so much more to learn about nutrition. Slowly I am repairing my own health and have hopes and dreams of helping others repair theirs too.
I know I am a wise traditions foody when blue ice royal unflavored gel started to taste good. I have already started drinking well sourced raw milk and providing myself and my family with blue ice royal as staples of our diet. I woul like to attend the conference to get a concentrated dose of everything that goes in to these wise traditions. WAPF has provided me with a lot of knowledge regarding vaccines. Attending one of your conferences would provide me and my family with a solid foundation going forward. Thanks
Adam Boone BSN, RN
Yay!!! Another nurse!!!
“You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie, when you actually do cry over spilled [raw] milk.”
The reason I would love to attend the conference is because I am just starting my family. I have been absorbing as much information about healthy living as I possibly can. I wanna to make sure I do the best I can to provide a healthy home and healthy meals for my family for many years to come!
“You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie, when you ditch the coffee in the morning and just have a mug full of raw cream instead!”
“You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie, when the local butcher knows you by name and already has ten pounds of grass fed beef fat set aside for you.”
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when your youngest begs to have his favorite milk in the big jars where we pick yummy Asian pears…when you give your child his own bowl of butter, for anytime he wants it because you are so tired of his finger marks in it, every time you go to use it…when people say “What’s ghee?” in the middle of your conversation…when you love the smell of broth simmering all day and it permeates the house…when you stand in the store and make your children wait “forever” because you have the opportunity to talk to someone about how good fat is and why your slim, healthy kids eat full fat all the time…and when you’re blatantly shocked by someone who would skim the cream off the top of the milk and not treat it like it’s liquid gold. 😩 I wanted so badly to go to the conference last year in CA, but couldn’t make it happen, maybe this time! 😀👊
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you panic if you run out of raw milk. I’ve never attended the conference but every year I wish I was attending. I worry about the danger my grandchildren are in because of poor food habits. I wish I could take all my kids to learn the truth about the critical importance of what they put in their bodies. I also grieve with all the young couples I know who struggle with infertility and miscarriage. We only have a short time to change before it’s too late.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you plan every meal around butter. I would live to go to the conference because I am moving to a town where there is no weston a price chapter nearby. Because the more you know, the more you can teach. Because I can’t get enough knowledge on how to nourish my family and heal through nutrition. Because there are so many out there suffering the from the toxins of processed foods. And because I want to help those people learn how we have the God given ability and resources to heal ourselves and to live fully for our children and our children’s children. So, yes I want to go to learn more to teach more and to change more people’s lives with this incredible foundation!
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie when your kid your 5 year old reminds you that she hasn’t had her cod liver oil today. I would love to go to the conference because knowledge is power. Our society has forgotten how to nourish and care for our bodies naturally through food and holistic means. My job as a mother is to learn this and teach it to my children so they can teach it to their children. Thank you for all you do!
You know your a wise tradition foodie when your children 9 & 6 check books out from the library about the dangers of GMO’s! I would absolutely love to go to the confrence to LEARN more! Investing in my children with the knowledge I have will give them the opportunity to be world changers. I am passionate about whole foods and health and it is definitely trickling down to my children! Pick me so I can continue to share what I know with others!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you view a cracker as a delivery system for butter. I went to my first conference last year and was amazed by the caliber of speakers. Be forewarned – the food is so good that you will not lose weight at this conference. How wonderful to eat out knowing that everything was good for me. I would love to go to this year’s conference to learn more about vaccinations for the sake of my grandchildren. I wish I could bring my daughters with me!
You know you are wise tradition foodie when your conversations with other mamas at the kindergarton are about bones, meat and raw milk. When I think about diet and gut flora immediately when considering children’s challenges or ailments, or when discussing truly important education with other healthcare professionals. I would absolutely love to attend the conference this year. I am a California Licensed Midwife with two young children and dairy goats.
I would love to gather even more information up to date and pertinant to this day and age to share with my clients and our community as a whole! Thanks, Olympia
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when…you keep running out of shelf space in your fridge because it’s so full of bone broth. You know it when you’re so addicted to fermented foods that it takes up a sizable chunk of your budget. You know it when that addiction leads you to start making all kinds of crazy cultures like ginger bugs and kombucha at home because you can’t afford both raw milk and endless store bought traditionally fermented pickles. You know it when you start a study group of ladies in your home from WAPF to learn more about nutrition and homeopathy because it is so much more fun to learn in community. I would love to join some of those ladies I study with each week at the conference this year, but I simply don’t have the finances to go. This year in particular, I’d love to hear Cilla Willcox speak since I’ve heard so much about her phenomenal teachings from her book “The Solution: the Vaccine Alternative” on homeoprophlaxis. Thanks! Anne
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when…you start your day with a cup of organic coffee blended with coconut oil and butter (from grass fed cows) and reading a Wise Traditions publication. I am 73 years old and continue to learn every day about improving ones health through nutrition and exercise. Thanks to Sally Fallon and Wise Traditions! I hope to start a Wise Traditions Group on the Island I live on.
Just as a point of clarification, we don’t recommend coffee! It isn’t served at the conferences being that is on the list of dietary avoids.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when: 1) Your milk comes in a mason jar. 2) Your bread is sour. 3) You have chickens free ranging your grass. 4) Local hunters know to deliver you liver. 5) Your children eat food they’ve proudly grown themselves.
I would love! to attend the WAPF Wise Traditions conference specifically to attend the vaccination classes. I REALLY want to learn more about this and hopefully about homeoprophylaxis. I appreciate the hope that the WAPF brings to mothers and I believe that it will be mothers who change the future. :)
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you haven’t legally obtained milk in years. You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when half of your dishes are mason jars. I’d love to go to the conference this year to get back on track. I need some inspiring and informative talks and to be around people that make me a better version of me. The vaccination track will be helpful in future conversations.
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when you are addicted to kombucha. Seriously. My husband is a minister and we have a very tight budget, but we live close to this year’s convention and I desperately want to go! I had cancer as a child and have all the health problems that come from having chemo and radiation that young. (But thank God I survived!) So we try to live as cleanly as possible, for me and our children. Some things we already practice, but some I am just learning! I would treasure the knowledge and pass it on to others!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when: (1) Your 1 year old uses sign language for “more” Fermented Cod liver oil (2) When you get that “look” from your friends at a restaurant as you lovingly layer a 1 inch slab of butter on your toast. (3) When you sneak a jar of bone broth into a movie theatre (no joke) (4) You’re kids munch on sardines and sauerkraut like most kids chow down a corndog.
I could go on and on, we are a die hard Weston Price family and the first conference I went to (with my then 4 month old baby in tow) changed our lives. We are facing some challenges with one of our children, the education and support this conference will provide would help us and our community in so many ways. Thank you for this opportunity, and may the most deserving families be awarded this invaluable educational experience!
Thank you so much for your entry, Caitlyn! I wanted to clarify that we do choose randomly. I consider everyone who would like to attend deserving of the experience and wish it was sustainable for the Foundation to open the doors to everyone who has submitted an entry.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you spend the week after butchering day cooking and simmering and preserving broth for the next few months. I would love to attend this conference to expand my knowledge of traditional foods and how to prepare them. I have never been at a WAP conference and I know it would be hugely encouraging. My family enjoys a real food diet and I’m always looking for new ways to do things the old fashioned way. Some of the best input I received from WAP in the past has been info on the subject of dental health and how to maintain it.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you would rather skip a meal than eat something that is WAP unapproved and unhealthy for you and your family. When no butter is better than anything but raw, grass fed and organic butter. When no red meat is better than meat that is not grass fed, grass finished, pastured and organic. When no milk is better than anything but raw, grass fed, pastured and organic milk. And when you would rearrange all other obligations to attend the WAP conference this year! 😂😀🤓.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your kitchen counters look like a science lab.
I would love to go to Wise Traditions because I’ve been a foodie for the last 8 years and would love to meet some like minded people. My youngest son was diagnosed with cancer at 6 months of age, so to ensure the best recovery we became avid followers of Weston A. Price. Our diet and lifestyle have done a 360. So besides owning our own food truck, being a mother and cooking traditionally life is so busy. I would see going to Wise Traditions as an amazing get away vacation, but we’re I could still enjoy eating amazing nutrient dense food.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you count the days until Saturday when your local co-op has their bone broth bar! and when you celebrate major days not primarily with wine but Kombucha. When sauerkraut gets you excited and you connect with others over your mutual love for Celtic sea salt. When you send Wise Traditions educational placemats as baby shower gifts and invite neighbors to your kitchen to see the “bean-soaking” chart on your cabinet. When you drive across town to buy raw milk and swap international fermented recipes (Go Salvadoran curtido!) with a buddy! I would *love* to go to this conference as my husband and I are a newly-married couple gettting in line with Weston A. Price principles and the nourishing traditions not only for our own health but for the sake of the children we want to welcome as we grow our family. We have much to learn, and this would quickly put us firmly on the right road!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you walk into a ‘ traditional grocery store’ and can’t find anything you consider food.
I don’t want to be negative, but I live in an organic food dessert. We moved this year to a more agricultural area, so that we might produce our own grassfed milk, meat and eggs and allow our children to grow up with traditional rural family values – and found that we can’t sell our organic corn-soy free pastured eggs, we can’t find true grass fed milk, or buy real grass fed pork, buy organic vegetables in any but 4 months of the year – or find any but a very few people that understand these foods’ values.
We’ve moved away from the bigger cities of our state – to find a vast expanse of ignorance; where cheap still equals the defining goal for food value. My neighbor encourages me to price my eggs 75 cents lower than the competition in order to sell them. That wouldn’t pay 1/2 of my feed bill, and it would just play into the ‘cheap is best’ mentality. The nearest WAP chapter is 2 hrs away in a city too expensive to find arable farm land. There is a natural grocery store here, but it stocks, primarily, processed items, local non-organic eggs, nonorganic pasteurized dairy, and has a freezer of local grass fed beef, that I can get directly from the producer at a fraction of the cost. The farmer’s market has exactly one organic vendor, and is open 4 months a year. Our growing season is 3 months at 8,000 ft, so our main garden will await our year round green house, being built for next year. Our raised beds percolate now with our organic compost, and wait until next spring’s planting.
It was a breath of fresh air to drive the 4 hrs north back to my old farmer’s market last weekend, visit with all my old foodie friends, and buy, for less cost, healthier food. Prices here are so high for what organic items are trucked into this community, that it’s cheaper to wait to buy my produce 1 1/2 hrs away in the nearest city, where, luckily, I go for work anyway. Their farmer’s market has zero organic vegetables or fruits. There IS one organic vendor here at our farmer’s market, which has closed after it’s 4 month long season. I’ll buy whatever I can from them, which is a very limited selection and quantity. The other organic vendor gave up in despair 3 months in because it simply wasn’t worth their effort. They’ve gone back to the bigger city’s farmer’s market 2 hrs away.
So, what hope keeps us going, working two full time jobs to produce our own healthy foods? What positive things can we do while we wait a decade or two for the organic movement to come our way? Well, my old farmer’s market buddies 4 hrs north of here are screaming for our corn-soy free organic pastured eggs. I may commit to borrowing a fridge and making an absurd drive up there every month, perhaps getting my other organic farm up here involved with their eggs. Our garden will be ready for planting in the spring. My neighbor has offered us space for starts in his greenhouse, until ours is built next year. We’re getting milk goats next spring, so can rely on our not-quite grass fed local cows milk to make our raw butter, but start producing our own milk and cheese. There may be a few customers to buy our milk, but mostly it will go to feed our grass and whey fed pigs. We build the soil with our organically raised animals’ compost. I hope my WAP children; tall, healthy, beautiful and talented, will act as spokes people for our life style. I hope that we can trade the popular old folks gossip regarding ‘which friend has been diagnosed with what’ to one of ‘which greens produce over the winter best’. I hope that we can pass our farm to one of our children; that their childhood can be repeated for many other generations.
It will obviously take a lot more time, and an increase in our community wealth, for people around here to desire organic, whole foods and be willing to pay the farmer a living wage for whole foods. Meanwhile, we continue the tradition of parent’s working two full time jobs, while growing whole foods for their family, and hoping that their community members might be willing to contribute to our life’s work. I am thankful daily for my job that allows me to buy organic livestock feeds, until one day, when we might receive enough local buyers demand, to have the farm paying for itself again; something the animals were doing until we moved to such an organic foods dessert.
It would be a great joy to be able to spend time among other Wise Tradition’s followers, to spend some time picking up Continuing Education that isn’t sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, where it wouldn’t be unnatural to ask the Taekwando instructor if he has any good Kimchi recipes. I hope we win the contest, so that my daughter and I can go hang out with other’s who don’t think our food choices are absurd, or our values a product of some yuppie visionary. Rather, those who understand that our health left us as a society when we left healthy farming practices behind. And that our national health can be reclaimed, by re-embracing the lifestyles and farming practices of our great-grandparents. Dad and son will have to stay home on the farm to keep things running until we return, but we would come back refreshed, and motivated again to continue to do the work that sustains us, literally, in health.

You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you spend a day of your summer vacation in Greece in a 100-year-old yogurt shop to learn the secrets of how they make yogurt from raw sheep’s milk fresh every day. I am an educator and lawyer who represents parents and their children with disabilities in special education matters. I’ve come to believe that a good education starts with a nourished child. And while we have free breakfast and free lunch for our underprivileged children, I am shocked at the lack of nutrition and amount of sugars (in various forms) in our school breakfast and lunch. I would love to learn more about how to nourish our children and how it can help children with disabilities. I already work hard at ensuring my own 2 boys have healthy food at every meal and I would love to be able to share this information with parents and school districts.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when Your morning text to your 7-month-old’s daycare provider looks like this:
‘He gets the grated liver for lunch, along with the egg yolk! You can mix the liver, the yolk, and some milk, and I bet he’ll love it! He liked the plain liver last night.m
I am a first time mama who has followed ancestral eating for the past few years, but would really like to learn more and incorporate more things like fermented foods into our daily lives!
1. You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when … (a) you make your own toothpaste, deodorant, soap and/or laundry detergent and all the ingredients you use come from your kitchen. (b) you look at someone’s teeth and want to give them your fermented cod liver oil with a chaser of raw milk (c) your child calls bone broth “yummy juice”
2. I’d like to go to link to others and learn from others who are changing the world and the economy from the ground up (one cow at a time 😜).
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when you keep all leftover bones in your freezer for stock. Or when you keep all veggie scraps for stock. Or when you refuse to eat processed or packaged foods. Or if you constantly ask yourself WWGE (what would grandma eat). Or if you really really really want to go to the conference!
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when at a children’s birthday party your 6-year old son does not touch any of the sweets stuff but says: “daddy, can I have bone soup instead?” As a parent, it is really important for me to teach the foundations to my children of the principles for a healthy life. In turn they teach their friends… The information generated at Wise Traditions is most precious against the tidal waves of misinformation! Attending would allow me to network with one of the most interesting and loving groups on the planet!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you carry your own sea salt in your purse!
I would like to attend this year’s conference to hear all the great speakers and catch up with the community on the events of this past year. If I attended I’d help at the Free and Healthy Children International exhibit table, too, to help spread the word about homeoprophylaxis for educating the immune system. Of course the wonderful food is the best of any conference one would ever attend. I always look forward to that as well. Thanks, Sandrine. Good luck to everyone in the giveaway!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you read the labels on your food. Ask where you food comes from? Is this grass fed beef, wild caught Salmon, raw milk, non-GMO, etc? You spend the better part of two days making organic French Onion soup right down to the glazing of veggies and roasting of shanks.
I would love to attend as I am trying to get my health back. I need all the help I can get. Thank you.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you make Kombucha every week to keep up with supply and demand for your children and grandchildren who come through your door wanting “buchy” instead of a glass of water. You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when making Keifer, Ghee, butter and yogurt from raw milk are your priority each week. You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your passion is to teach young moms a better way to feed and care for their children.
As a mother and grandmother it is my passion and my ministry to work with the young moms in our community teaching them the Wise Traditions Way to raise their children. I have formed a group of young moms who desire to know more about the Wise Traditions way, including nutrition, vaccines, herbal medicines, natural ways to clean, benefits of grounding and so much more. I depend on your monthly magazine for valuable information and education. The research of Dr. Price has been transformational for me and my family! There is so much to learn so I seek out every opportunity to educated myself, to be mentored by others and, then, to be a mentor to others as I pass along Wise Traditions information. I have longed to come to this conference for years and this year I am so excited my husband has worked to make it a reality for me! However, receiving a complementary registration would really benefit our budget and allow me to use the funds to further the education I desire to share with others. Thank you for the opportunity to share these thoughts with you!
You know you are Wise Traditions Foodie when latest food recall means nothing to you.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you start preparing Friday’s dinner on Monday evening.
My husband and I attended the conference 2 years ago and had a wonderful time. It was like coming home to a family. The sense of community was unbelievable. It is so hard sometimes to be surrounded by people who just don’t get what Real Food is all about. It was the first time that I didn’t feel like I needed to pack a cooler of food just to go out of town. We are from Indiana so it was easy for us to make it to the Indianapolis convention. Winning tickets would make the trip to Alabama so much more affordable for us as I would love to be able to bring our children (7 and 3) this year so they can begin to learn and appreciate just how blessed they are to eat the foods that they do!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you wait patiently for someone to throw you a bone … that is for making broth then on to the dogs of course.
We have never been to a conference before. A wonderful friend/ neighbor told me about Wise Traditions about 1 & 1/2 years ago and I have been following everyday since. I absolutely love all the great information and pass it along to everyone I know.
I would be so greatful to attend this conference mainly for the much valuable information on our children and their food intake. I am a single mother of two young children and have been teaching them about quality of food and making better choices even if it sounds or looks weird. Both my children and I would absolutely be so happy to have the opportunity to come learn about such valuable information that Weston A Price has to offer. Even though my children are still young, 8 & 5, they notice the difference between “real” food and that other stuff that’s around. Thank you for this opportunity!!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you add gelatin and grass fed butter to every meal possible when your son comes home from college to nourish him.

I would love to attend this conference to absorb all the nourishing knowledge possible. I would invite my nephew, who is a chef, to go with me. He is currently working in a raw restaurant. He’d love it and so would I. THANKS
You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie when your teenagers go to the dentist and have never had a cavity. You know your a Wise Traditions Foodie when your out of raw milk and it’s panic mode.
I would enjoy the opportunity to learn and absorb at this fabulous conference because I’ve based by whole life/motherhood around the principles, from breastfeeding, vaccinations, food, to anything and everything me and my family let in our lives. Aajonus Vonderplanitz’s book, ” We Want To Live”, led me to Weston A Price 15 years ago and I will forever be greatful. I’ve enjoyed watching the raw food movement grow and blossom. Cheers!
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when that smell in your kitchen comes from fermenting your own cod livers. Or when your entire counter space is filled with fermenting jars and crocks.

You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when a glass of Raw milk and a slice of sourdough make for a snack.
I’d love to attend and soak up more knowledge on vaccinations and wise tradions ways. With a 15 month old I want to be as informed as possible so I can share with friends and family through educating. I’d also love to meet more likeminded folks. These events get me so energized and it would most likely guarantee my participation at future events! One day I will get there!
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when your son asks, “Mom, which jar of white creamy stuff is the yogurt?” Or when your husband accidentally blends up your kefir pearls in his banana smoothie and you have to facebook all your friends to find some new pearls. Or when you take a sack lunch consisting of sourdough bread, with raw butter, a jar of kimchi, & a jar of kefir to work.
i would love to attend the conference and soak up some more info about healthy foods and cooking! Also, to enjoy the company of like minded people!

I went to last year’s conference in Anaheim. The conference’s food was fantastic and the chefs received a prolonged standing ovation! The speakers were great and what I learned propelled me further down the road to becoming a Wise Traditions Foodie. The change in diet worked wonders. I tell everyone who has an listening ear about the benefits of Wise Traditions. The healthier I get, the more I learn, the more I think I can bring my son around. It would be great to go again.

We have been faithfully following a WAP diet since my oldest was a baby, 7 years ago, but have never been able to attend a conference-it would be a dream! We have 5 young kids and have moved to a farm to be able to raise as much nourishing food as we can for our family- I would love to be able to hear the talks about farming and vaccines. Thank you for offering this out for someone to win!!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you meet someone who’s pregnant and want to give them your business card after scribling “westonaprice.org” on the back.
I have wanted to take along or send my niece for several years now to a Wise Traditions conference. She had a bout with anorexia in her teens leaving her with ulcerative colitis, damaged menstrual cycle, and weakened thyroid. Now that she is in her mid-twenties, engaged, and soon to be married and thinking about having kids, she has decided (finally – hallelujah!) to consider her Aunt Deb’s advice and look into changing her diet and healing her gut. I think (know) a conference like this would motivate her in this healthy direction.
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when you overhear two teenage girls at church talking about you: “She’d be a good one to teach a class on health… When I babysit for her I have to bring my own snacks because there’s only health food there!”
I have a dream to open my home to elderly people in my community to come during the day for healthy meals. I would serve them rich bone broths and other Nourishing Traditions foods. My heart aches for our elderly who are wasting away at home, lonely and malnourished. They are usually too tired to take the time to cook a nutritious meal for just themselves. And then they suffer from dementia-like symptoms, which often are vitamin- and mineral deficiencies.
I’ve had an impact on my children’s health, and on their friends, who ask for a bite of my kids’ nutritious foods instead of their own unhealthy meals. My oldest son is now married and he and his wife love and use the Nourishing Traditions book I gave them. Their one-year-old son if destined to be the healthiest child yet!
Now that my children are older and I’ve taught them well, I’d love to attend this conference and learn how I can be of help to as many of our forgotten elderly people as possible.
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when fermenting new foods is thrilling.
I would love the opportunity to attend this conference as we are just beginning our real food journey. I’m due with my first baby in December, and having a child has opened my eyes to the importance of nourishing our bodies through food. I’m trying to learn all I can so my kids will be raised knowing how to enjoy food. I know this conference would be a great experience!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when you eat lunch with your child at school and spend the entire time answering this question about the foods in your lunchboxes: “What is THAT?!
I would love the opportunity to attend the conference because I have never been before. I have really enjoyed my local chapter meetings and have learned so much, that I think the conference would be very valuable. I also feel very fortunate to live close to one of the speakers, and I would be grateful to show him my support. The Weston A. Price Foundation has helped me tremendously in my journey toward health, and I value sharing information, ideas, and thoughts with others who appreciate learning as much as I do.
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when the word kvass makes your mouth water.
I would love to attend this conference I’ve been on the real good journey for the last couple of years and I am expecting my first child this upcoming February. It would also be really really amazing to be around like minded people where I can freely talk about food and not get looked at like I am insane.
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your patients call you the Bacon Doctor. As a Naturopathic Doctor my passion is teaching people how to achieve vibrant health. It all starts with the food you nourish your body with. I want to attend the conference to be surrounded by like minded folks fighting the good fight for nourishing food alongside me. It is such a tough battle everyday to feed ourselves well, and share our knowledge with our friends, family, and anyone else who will listen. Conferences allow us to share ideas, make connections, and find new friends. I hope to see you all there!

My husband and I are really just at the beginning of our real food journey. There is SO much more to learn and I know the conference would be a priceless experience. We are currently trying to start our little family and my eyes have been opened to just how important REAL food is to our health and wellbeing; I want our kids to know that inherently, and I want to focus on real, nourishing foods to have a healthy pregnancy.

As an aspiring health and wellness entrepreneur that has had his life changed by using the practices discovered by Weston A Price, attending this conference would be an honor and an opportunity that I would be eternally grateful for. I’m 26 and my girlfriend of 4 years has just moved across the country. We are staying together, but I of course have loads of free time now. My goal is to learn as much as I can in the year Spain before I join her on the west coast.(I am in Chicago currently). My goal, like anybody that is in this space, is to bring the information that is spread here to light for as many people as possible. To help them realize their true potential and help them get there with straight forward actionable steps. Everyone deserves to feel good and live a life free of disease. It’s to me considered a human right.
Thank you for all that you do!!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions Foodie when… your friends think you’re a hippy and don’t even blink when you tell them that you spent your Saturday morning at your farmer’s farm gutting chickens at 5 am, you have things fermenting all over your house, and you want to implore everyone you know to drink copious amount of bone broth! =)
I’d love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference this year because I’m in the process of launching a blog that’d target a younger male audience, with a goal is transformation and WAP converts. I’m in my early thirties and I’m so grateful for all the female voices in the mix. I think that we could really use more guys championing this way of life! I want to significantly contribute to and bolster the real food movement and I feel that attending the conference this year would really serve to sling shot me into that!

Going to the conference would be so much fun for me to learn more about traditions diets and health, while meeting many others who share similar values about how we take care of ourselves and the planet. I’d like to get involved with more activities based on these topics, plus learn some good solid facts to share with those who need it. As of now, my journey in traditional living has been sort of on my own besides my immediate family who I’ve convinced to change some things like drinking raw milk instead of skim. But I’d love to get this stuff out into the community! Attending the conference would be a great start!
You know you are a Wise Traditions foodie when you get the sweats at the thought of not having ALL of your time to solely focus on all things WAP! I am eager to be able to dogear every single recipe included in the Nourishing Traditions and Nourishing our Children book. Especially the fermenting recipes. I am SO eager to dive back into fermenting. I was giddy like a little kid to meet and be able to hear a talk by Sally Fallon a few weeks ago at the WWC conference and I was over the moon excited to learn about this conference. I want to go back and get my Masters in Nutrition and Health and would be ecstatic to be able to soak up the amazing information offered at this conference. I am slowly converting our diet and I have so many questions and ideas to talk with like minded people about!
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when you’ve ran out of space in your deep freeze for bone broth, and you have a hard time going on vacation since you have so many ferments to tend to! Another Wise Tradition foodie once told me, “Be mindful of everything you put in your mouth, because it is what your health will become.”
I am a third generation gardener, having learned the Wise Tradition way from my grandma and mother. I grew up in the good soil of good teaching and great eating. Now I’ve started my own family and wish I had absorbed more into my roots from those around me so full of knowledge. Now I am seizing the day and attending the conference with the confidence to learn more skills to grow for my lively good and my wife wants to learn more about healthy pregnancy and vaccinations as she aspires to help out the community in our small town in Alabama by teaching classes.
I am a proud Wise Traditions Foodie!
You know you are a Wise Traditions Foodie when your three year old happily takes his “spicy” (Cinnamon Tingle flavor FCLO) every morning!
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference this year for a number of reasons. First, I am expecting our second child and want to learn more about prenatal nutrition. Second, we will likely be facing vaccine pressure when our three year old starts kindergarten in less than two years and I would like to know all the details before then. Third, it’s difficult for me to explain everything I’ve learned from Wise Traditions to my husband and I would like some tips on how to easily convey this info. Fourth, I’d love to meet some people who could give me moral support in fighting the good fight! :)
You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when your baby’s first food is liver pate. I’ve never attended the conference and would really love to! I could use some help regaining my health after the birth of my daughter and help with learning more about what to feed her. I’m also very, very interested in learning more about vaccines. We’ve been holding off until we have enough information to make a good decision.
You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when you pack up your family and buy a farm so you can raise your own nourishing food. You know you’re a wise traditions foodie when your advice to friends & family’s health issues is always bone broth.
I’d love to take my wife to this conference, it’s been her dream for years. We have young kids so our passion is to learn how to nourish then so they can be healthy as they grow & teach them how to nourish themselves. I would love to hear the conference speakers and see the exhibitions, as well as enjoy the wonderful meals.
I went to randomly pick the “winner” and yours qualitifed just in the nick of time! The phrase nick of time works well in your case!
You know you are a wise traditions foodie when you and your daughter just take random bites out of a slab of butter like it’s totally normal!
It’s been a dream of mine for years to be able to attend conference! I have 5 children and am constantly trying to find ways to nourish their developing bodies and souls. I’m particularly interested in finding ways to get “good stuff” into a picky child. I’m also in school for natural medicine and would love to be able to incorporate what I learn into my practice someday. To keep learning myself, in order to pass that knowledge onto others is my passion.
Dr. Weston Price was an amazing man. My family and I have greatly benefited from his research. Bless you for writing on this subject.
