Did You Know
Are Humans Vegans or Omnivores?

We realize this is a sensitive subject but find it so important to talk about from a health perspective. After experiencing detrimental health and mental health effects from her own foray into veganism, Nora became determined to find out what foods worked best for her biology.

By studying the foundational roots of prehistoric ancestral diets, along with the various selective pressures that served to shape our physiological makeup and most basic nutritional requirements as humans, she sought to answer the question: Is human health enhanced or best supported by a strictly (or mostly) herbivorous diet?

Keep reading to find out how she found veganism, why she gave it up, and how a close examination of the human ancestral diet over thousands of years helped her realize that the body's cravings for animal products weren't a personal failure - they were biological.

Try New Things
Buy Local Produce

Large scale chemical agriculture is poisoning our soils and our water, and weakening our communities. By buying direct from a local family farm you can help put a stop to this unfortunate trend. By buying organic produce from your local farmer, you are working to maintain a healthy environment, a vibrant community, and a strong and sustainable local economy for you and your kids to thrive in.

There are almost two million farms in the USA. About 80% of those are small farms, and a large percentage are family owned. More and more of these farmers are now selling their products directly to the public. They do this via  CSA programs Farmers' Markets Food Coops , u-picks, farm stands, and other  direct marketing  channels. 

CSA, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture, is a system for helping farmers sell direct to consumers. Consumers pay at the beginning of the season, when the farmer needs capital most (for seeds, fertilizer and other seasonal startup costs), and receive farm raised goods later that year, typically on a weekly or monthly schedule. 

If it is too late to join a CSA, try purchasing your foods at the Farmers' Markets and if the Farmer's Markets aren't running (because it is winter), look for the Locally Grown label at your supermarkets.
