Welcome to Episode 134 of the Autism Parenting Secrets.

Sally Fallon Morell is our special guest this week and we’re talking about nourishing food.

Sally is the founding president of The Weston A. Price Foundation, a non-profit nutrition education foundation dedicated to returning nutrient-dense food to American tables.

She’s also the editor of the Foundation’s quarterly journal that is distributed to the Foundation’s thirteen thousand members and over three hundred local chapters worldwide.

She’s perhaps best known for her best-selling cookbook, Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats.

Sally’s work is widely respected for providing accurate and understandable explanations of complicated subjects in the field of nutrition and health.

She’s authored many books, articles, and publications on a wide variety of topics including the benefits of animal fats, bone broth, and raw milk and the dangers of GMOs, soy, corn, and chemicals/pesticides/and hormones in and on food.

Sally and her organization are changing the conversation about what constitutes a healthy diet and challenges the legitimacy of the low-fat, low-cholesterol paradigm.

She’s the mother of four and has four grandchildren, all brought up according to Nourishing Traditions principles.

Today, we’re focusing on the importance of animal fats in the diet.
