Free Video Series: Learn How To...
These videos are a gift from me to you! I'm Wardee, the lead teacher of TraditionalCookingSchool.com and the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermenting Foods". Your email address is safe with me. :)
Your free videos are clearer and more practical...
"In the past I have taken a weekend cooking class on traditional foods that cost several thousand dollars. Your free videos are clearer and more practical. I am even more inspired to cook organic whole foods for my family. Thanks for your encouragement." ~ Dawn M.
Your free videos are clearer and more practical...
"Greetings from Southern Oregon... I am SO excited about your site, the trainings, recipes, and perspective. Beautiful first video and I couldn't agree more. I am blessed to have found this connection and will share with others. Many continued blessings to you and your family, Wardee!" ~Joni H.
A renewed motivation to get with the program
"Dear Wardee... I add my thanks to God and to you. Hooking up with your website and seeing your posts on Facebook, have given me a renewed motivation to "get with the program" after our long Maine winter is over. I have never tried preserving excess garden foods, but as I slowly shift my "normal" american diet to diet as you present it, I am finding that I am feeling better physically. I am disabled with severe Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome/ Fibromyalgia and and waiting to get into a Neurologist to rule out MS (hopefully). I have taken tons of drugs with no appreciable improvement. I'm sure that God sent me to you, and I can't wait to learn all that you have to teach. As well as I can't wait to start feeling better! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!" ~Joan
Clear, easy to follow, and very motivating
"Hi Wardee, it was wonderful to learn of your family's experiences with whole foods while also being inspiring and highly educational. Thank you! Your videos are clear, easy to follow and very motivating. Thank you!" ~Pat
Thank you for helping me prepare food in a traditional way...
"God bless you for extending your generosity to me with these free videos! I need all the help I can get on this journey to understanding the preparation of real food for healthier living. Every day I watch the planes spray and dump chemicals on my tiny city garden. And every day I pray to our Lord to preserve us from debilitating toxic chemicals. Thank you for helping me to prepare food in a traditional and proper way." ~Deb H.
New sense of direction...
"As a Christian, I have long wondered where the disconnect is between God and typical American eating and farming practices. You have found the words for what I have felt for a long time, and I am grateful. I have felt alone in having a strong sense of right and wrong in my kitchen (regarding how foods are raised and grown and prepared). You have also given me new direction and a broader view than I had discovered on my own. Thank you for this healthy wealth of information!" ~K. Baldwin
I’m Wardee, a wife, mom of 3, and traditional cook in Indiana. (In the video above, I say we live in Oregon, but we have since moved!)
For years, my family struggled with food-related health problems, like food and environmental allergies, digestive issues, and an overall lack of energy.
We worked around these issues for a long time. I looked into traditional healing food preparation methods like those in the book "Nourishing Traditions," but learning a whole new way to eat and prepare food felt really overwhelming.
There's a lot of information to absorb and implement!
I thought it seemed too complicated. Too hard. Basically, I was scared. :)
One day, a lightbulb went off! I realized that our diet was already restrictive and difficult, so why not try that thing called Traditional Cooking? It couldn't be any harder than what we were doing already.
We had nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
So I revisited those traditional cooking methods — and it was like discovering food for the first time. Delicious, nutritious, and healing! It was amazing!
Consuming those whole ingredients prepared through traditional methods made our food more nutritious and digestible, improved our gut health, helped our immune system fight off sickness and disease, and resolved our food sensitivities and seasonal allergies. Among many other things!
The recipes are delicious and easy to follow, but the best part is how good it feels to know that we're glorifying God, our Creator, by embracing His design for our nourishment.
The biggest misconception about traditional cooking is that the methods take too long or are too complicated to follow.
That's simply not true!
I’d love to show you how simple and easy it can be by giving you 5 free videos.
Included are my favorite traditional food prep techniques, plus I will give you printable at-a-glance fact-sheets — they'll be a handy reference as you easily implement what you discover.
Simply click the yellow button above or below — and I’ll get you started right away.
I look forward to working with you, and seeing how I can help you and your family look good, feel good, and most importantly, do good!
Ready to get started enjoying healthy foods your family will love? Great!
