In the world of homeschooling, the options for Nutrition & Health curricula are down right scary. Everything out there teaches the USDA Food Pyramid’s fear of fats and love of grains. Everything. Never mind that the grains are refined, extruded, denatured constructs of modern engineering. Never mind that the meats come from an inhumane, unsustainable, and unhealthy industrial food supply. Never mind that the dairy is all pasteurized, fortified, and full of antibiotics and pus.
If you’re trying to teach your kids to love Real Food (food that is traditional, old, sustainably and ethically grown or raised, etc.), you won’t find a textbook to support your view. If you’re trying to teach your kids to love saturated fats like butter, coconut oil, and tallow, you won’t find a curriculum that even comes close.
So, for the past six months, I’ve been writing a book just for you. It’s written at a high school (or maybe a mature middle school) level, and covers the same basic topics that are covered in a high school Nutrition & Health course. Only there’s a difference. I’m on your side.
The book’s in the final stages of editing and will be made available to the paying public within the next month or two. You’ll be able to buy it as an e-Book or in a printed version.
But to top it all off, I’m also going to break the book down into a full-fledged online course. So, you’ll have the option of buying the book and creating your own assignments, weekly lesson plans, etc., OR you can enroll your kids in my e-Course and leave all that up to me.
I’ll be discussing more details about it all in the coming months. I just wanted to give you a heads up because if you’re at all like me, you’re already making plans for the next school year.
I can’t wait to make this available to you!
