Many parents around the world forget a powerful tool; the kitchen! We shouldn’t allow ourselves to minimize preparing food in the home. So let’s change this.
Powerful Kitchen Brings Good Health
This clip is from the 2016 NTA Conference. This is my first speaking engagement to practitioners after years of working with foster kids and teaching my kids. I interrupt myself saying, “..but you have to do [real food]”. I remember the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation and this is that video clip.
It concerns me today that we value self-worth on the amount of a paycheck or the prestige of a title. These are important, but with so many of our children sick, we may need to re-evaluate our mindset. When I quit my high paying job to stay home with our children, surprising comments flood my email from well-meaning people. It is as if I had “lowered” myself as a stay-at-home mom. What I have learned is that I am powerful in the role I play to recover my son who was born with complications. Each person must do what is necessary with what life hands out, and each choice is of equal value.
As a Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price organization, a Mom, author, speaker, and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I find it imperative to get into the kitchen. I get the, “I’m busy” program, but preparing good, clean, real food helps our family. Working with foster children allows me to see this power in our kitchen that I might have missed otherwise.
Hope this quick clip inspires you to get into the kitchen and prepare some good food for your family. Yes, it is convenient to buy food prepared at a restaurant or a grocery store, but my goal is to help you understand that no one will prepare food with the love and nourishment you can. When food is from local, organically minded farmers, there are fewer toxins. Additionally, you will bless a member of your community who is dedicating his/her land and time to grow food in a natural environment that nourishes others.
Be encouraged, and get into the kitchen, It is a way to grab back the reigns to health. So next time you want to stop for fast food or get a pill to correct an indication, remember to also choose clean, real food, from local farmers. Then in a short time, you may actually enjoy better health, better food, and save money. That is the power of being in the kitchen.
Enjoy your time in the kitchen!
