Interview: Sally Fallon Morell, President of the WAPF and “Nourishing Traditions” Author

Needless to say, we are quite honored to have Sally Fallon Morell on the show with us today. She is the author of our dog-eared copy of Nourishing Traditions, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, organizer for the Wise Traditions conferences and someone who has helped to nourish multiple generations with good food science. Sally has been a forerunner in the real food movement and we owe her so much for having the courage to carry the torch for the research of Dr. Weston A. Price.
