#11 – Nourishing Traditions: THE Ancestral Cookbook

In this episode, Andrea and Alison talk about the cookbook that has healed the way they view, cook and eat food, THE ancestral cookbook, Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions.

Technical Note: Andrea’s microphone cord was touching part of the microphone stand, so you can hear a subtle metallic brushing every so often. This unusual issue has been resolved for future recordings. Our apologies for this audio interruption!

If Alison the raw vegan could see me now she would see someone who is a lot happier, more content, and more in touch with things than I was back then. A lot of it comes with taking a journey and embracing it, stepping forward into the unknown, even though it’s scary, and changing. That’s what Nourishing Traditions helped me to do.” – Alison
