Sally Fallon Morell & Hilda Labrada Gore: Living In A Food Desert & Concrete Jungle

 Sally Fallon Morell & Hilda Labrada Gore

“How can you start eating healthier if you don't know how and are feeling overwhelmed? It's simple; start with no refined or denatured foods. We just need to look for more whole foods and get familiar with the kitchen and cooking. It's all about nourishing on a deep level and not just because you have all of these really great ingredients but because you're inserting time, energy, and love into nourishing your family.” – Hilda Labrada Gore

“Go to the grocery store and hold a box of cereal like Captain Crunch in front of you to see how your body reacts. Does it move forward or go back? If it goes back, then you know it's not good for you. There are ways of asking your body if something is good for you.” – Sally Fallon Morell

How can you begin to nourish you and your family on a deeper level? Especially if you live in a food desert or concrete jungle?

Power Quotes From The Show

Getting Back In Touch With Our Wise Traditions

“Food awareness begins the moment you recognize what you're literally being sold through your TV, devices, and everything around you. Then, you can start to open your eyes to your true identity. If we can rediscover our roots, that will help us get back in touch with our wise traditions.” – Hilda Labrada Gore


Benefits Of Drinking Raw Dairy

“We're big advocates of raw dairy and we have shown that such products are very safe and can make a huge difference in the health of your family. If you only make one change, switch to raw milk. We've had such wonderful feedback from children who now behave better, aren't oversleeping, and whose allergies have gone away. Raw milk is not only powerful against asthma but eczema as well.” – Sally Fallon Morell


Making It A Priority To Eat Healthier

“A lot of people that are in tight, economic situations are receiving food from these pantries that are just full of processed products but we want them to have real food. So, it is challenging and yet, I see great promise with groups like SNAP that give money to people who are disadvantaged economically to spend it at the Farmer's Market. Also, we have chapter leaders all around the world who will help you find sources of real food if you don't know where to go. There is always a way but you have to make it a priority to eat healthier.” – Hilda Labrada Gore
