Today I attended the “Making Food Storage A Lifestyle” lecture given by Russ Silver (a chapter leader of the Weston A. Price Foundation) at a Healing and Wholeness expo sponsered by my sister and brother-in-law at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi.
After the seminar I was able to speak with Russ and his wife. I hope to visit them in their home soon to see how they live on their food storage. This seminar opened my eyes to some healthy ideas about food storage. Logical, not way out there stuff. I learned the importance of having fats in the diet. And the importance of baking with 3 or 4 mixed grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rice, etc.). And storing sea salt. Russ has had many years of experience in storing and using his food storage. He has studied various cultures of healthy people, and learned how to remain healthy himself. He has not had the flu in 15 years! There is much for me to learn. I am digesting his DVD which is helping me understand some healthy ways of eating and storing. Since I am a semi-homemade food storager, I have a long way to go. I know some of my readers do a much better job of this than I do, but I am willing to learn.
