If not for Traditional Cooking School, I would be sitting in front of a television trying to get up energy to prepare foods at home. I would still be over 200 pounds and very depressed. (I have cut back on most all my medications and I’m breathing better and have better stamina.) My grandson would not be excelling in school as he is now and would not have the energy to play outdoors like he does. My son-by-love is working the farm and building our home and teaching me so much.
I thought I couldn’t afford not to take advantage of Traditional Cooking School. I have learned so much! You have made me realize we could afford to eat healthy and it isn’t rocket science. We have several health issues and I know they are related to how unhealthy we have eaten all these years. Currently I am taking the Fundamental courses and loving them. I look forward to each one. I love the video and audio portions especially.
My family had fun together watching kid videos and making those recipes. But the biggest benefit for our family was me seeing all the other moms on video that really nourish their families. It got me over the hump from doing it 60% to more like 97%. Which is a big deal as my son had really bad teeth… I just had it in my head before that no one could really be that ‘perfect’ in their cooking. Now we have a better diet and I also have more energy mostly because I now make all baked goods, which I love, sourdough.
One of the biggest changes I made was adding sourdough breads to my diet. I no longer buy bread of any kind from the grocery store. I had never thought about how years ago before there was commercial yeast how people used to make bread…. it never dawned on me. And now my stomach issues have gone away. I can eat tomatoes and bananas without getting a stomach ache. I get fresh raw milk from a friend that has cows, I make my own yogurt, cheese, and diary kefir. I got back into gardening and growing my own food, I added chickens to my backyard (no rooster…I live in town). I can’t wait for fresh eggs. I have learned so much and I am 52!!
