Doing Dairy Right.

My post today for Steve’s Original is on Doing Dairy Right. After attending this weekend’s Wise Traditions Conference of the Weston A. Price Foundation, I had udders on the brain. The Weston A. Price Foundation is firmly invested in supporting the legalization of Raw Milk in all states.

Ironically, despite some old “bad blood” between Sally Fallon Morell and Loren Cordain (proponents of Weston A. Price dietary practices and the Paleo diet, respectively), I find the melding of the “best from both worlds” creates the perfect set of modern dietary principles. Combine the Paleo diet’s eye for evolutionary nutrition, anthropological data, and a back-to-basics approach with WAP’s fierce commitment to supporting local farmers raising 100% pastured meats and raw dairy, and you’ve got a terrific approach to wellness. (Perhaps I’ll coin the WAPPED Diet – Weston A. Price Paleo-Evolutionary Diet? Thoughts? Bueller?)

While I have an enormous problem with dairy as we find it in supermarkets today, as well as with the outright lies perpetrated by Monsanto and the FDA about the safety of rBGH cows, there are a few ways to incorporate dairy into the modern diet safely.

As promised in the Paleo Police post, here’s my guide to Doing Dairy Right. Some of us Cavepeople still love some cream in our coffee, and there’s nothing wrong with that – if it’s done right…”

  1. Hey Liz,
    These guys are my local non-pasteurised, non-homogenised milk and cheese producers – they also sell their cheeses in the US. Not sure how their cheese is affected by laws banning non-pasteurised milk (I couldn’t believe it’s not legal in the US) here is a link to their US stockists, you might have to copy and paste as it’s not appearing as a hyper link. They’re very proud of their Happy Cows and said I can visit! 🙂 hooray for happy cows!

    • It looks like they sell in Philly! I will definitely give them a try! I’m reading up on this…I believe that hard cheeses are considered “safer” than soft cheeses and there may be an aging requirement for raw milk cheese! TOTALLY not sure about that though, udder speculation 🙂 (Pun intended) Thanks for the recommendation!
