Holiztic -- Do you think you can tell us a little more about the conference just so that I can live vicariously through you for a minute or two?

This article is a must-read, especially for the "failed" veg*ns:
http://naturalhygienesociety.org/articles/paleo2.html

It's from the International Natural Hygiene Society, very in-depth and written by another "failed" veg*n (as you know, Natural Hygienists are predominately vegans). Bottom line: we are all different, and what works for one may be detrimental to another. I was nodding my head in agreement the whole time!

Me too, Thanks for the link. (except for the pizza part where I drooled and fantasized but didn't nod my head)

The conference sounds so neat! I would love to hear more too...


I hope to go to the regional conference in Colorado next March.

Kelly -- Do you have more info?

Gale Force--I'll tell you what I can in the few moments I have!!

I was only there for Friday, the "Pre-Conference" workshops. There were 3 tracks: Traditional Diets with Sally, Lacto-Fermented Foods with John Eistenstein and Dina some-thing or other (they were both fantastic--and John's a cutie! Oh, and other speakers did the afternoon, though I wasn't there, so I am not sure who) and then a Fertility Awareness Workshop with Katie Singer.

I spent the morning in lacto-fermented foods, learning to make ginger ale and other bubbly beverages. Then after a very good (but not stellar ) buffet lunch (GREAT sourdough bread), I spent the afternoon in the FA workshop. Katie is great, knowledgable but very humble. I enjoyed her, but already knew most of what she covered having read The Garden Of Fertility and Toni Welscher's TCOYF. Finally I slipped in to the last 45 mintues with Sally (huge group in there!) as she was recapping all the do's and don'ts.

I heard there were 800 people there (not sure if this was just Friday or if it was the total people exepcted over the 3 days). I met tons of people from this area as well as MN, TX, ME, Australia, etc. Its amazing to hear how much easier it is to get raw milk in places other then Maryland!

Though there were surely more exhibiters on the weekend, there were a bunch of great groups there on Friday. Body Ecology (not Donna Gates, at least not on Friday) was there, as was a company I was unaware of--Dr Ron's--that sells organ and gland supplements and butter oil, etc-got some great info from them!

Well, only had a few minutes to type. Hope you had fun living vicariously! Wish I had been there all 3 days!!! Next year, maybe!

Hi Amanda,

Here is the link- I'm just getting aware of the Colorado NT groups and found this a few days ago:

Western Conference 2006

It's in Denver but it's the whole Western Conference. The lineup sounds so cool! I want to go to all 3 days if DH will agree to come and help with the little ones.

Hi there, I'm glad to find this thread .. I've done some NT stuff for a few years and I'm trying to do more and more these days ..

Anyway, I have a stock question and need some experienced advice. I just made some beef stock from a bag of random bones from the butcher. They were very marrowy (that's not a word, I know ) and pretty meaty. I browned the meaty ones just like in SF's recipe. I strained and refrigerated it, took the fat off, and what I have is kind of the consistency of loose jello. It was the same the last time I made beef stock, too. So ... I'm thinking this is good because there's lots of gelatin in it ?? But it's kind of gross ... would you thin it down before you used it? I thought her recipe said I'd get a clear broth .. that's definitely not what I have ..

What do you think? TIA

Sounds absolutely great to me, Sarah. Lots of gelatin. When it's heated, it will "melt" into a liquid and won't appear gel-like at all. And mine is never clear, btw.

I'm going to try making some beef broth soon. We got a 1/4 of pastured beef, and I asked for the soup bones. It's a little intimidating to me, but I'm sure that it will turn out edible!

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving with my ILs next week. It will be lots of junk food and very processed veggies/meat/etc. It will be good to get together with family, but nice to be back home at the end.

I made the BEST ice cream this week with our raw cream. SO GOOD!! and we're having delicious butter, too.

Hope everyone has a great week, I will probably not post again until December, although one never knows!

I think in a lot of cases this is true "because of" eating a traditional diet

We bought a whole one and have a bunch of neck bones and shanks. Both have some meat on them. We crock pot them with water, like you would do a broth. Then we pick off the meat and set it aside for soup or some other dish. We usually put the bones back in for another round, but that's after straining and refrigerating the first batch of broth. If you let it stew too long it can get bitter.

I've been emailing Hidden Stream Farms about their pastured chicken and beef. Their prices are fantastic! I haven't found a good local source yet, and thought I'd share this resource with others. They're in Minnesota.

The cows are fully pasture- and hay-fed. They're given mineral supplements, nothing else. The chickens roam the pasture, but are given a corn/soy/etc. grain mix from a local elevator. I'm thinking of trying the beef sometime soon, unless I can locate a local source.

And RE: the gelatin broth--sounds perfect! My chicken broth always gels up, and it tastes wonderful when heated. When we don't have money for much meet, this broth gets us through the week.

ROTFL, oops my bad. My metabolism is pretty high now, and it was never really high before.

Been doing some thinking and reassessing of my diet lately. I used to think that only minimal amounts of animal product was best, but I think I was so entrenched in veg*n philosophy (even still, even after my diet change) that I did not want to really face the issue. So it's been hard for me to admit that I actually feel better with more meat and less grain in my diet. Sigh...grain is so much cheaper than good quality meat too. I can't do legumes anymore. They make me go into digestive distress.

Does anyone else feel like an onion? I feel like every time I fix one thing, then another thing pops up that needs addressing.
