The April potluck celebrated two major turning points for the Weston A. Price Pasadena Chapter. First, we celebrated six years of having this wonderful chapter. To help with the festivities, Suzanne Peters baked some of her delicious grain free cupcake.

The second part of the meeting was my return as a co-leader after a brief hiatus starting about two years ago. It was announced to the general members that I’d help run things again, and then I gave a presentation about how to stock your pantry and fridge with nutrient dense foods. I’ve run my blog The Appropriate Omnivore for five years now and the focus has always been on products people can buy when wanting to cook real food.
