WAPF Kamloops Chapter at Kamloops Wellness Festival on June 17-19, 2011


The Kamloops Wellness Festival wants to feed the soul to heal the body.

Where: Let’s Move Studio, 925 McGill Place, Kamloops, BC V2C 6N9
When: Friday, Saturday and Sunday June 17-19, 2011
Time: Friday: 6:30pm-10:30pm; Saturday: 10:00am-10:00pm; Sunday: 9:30am-2:00pm

I will be at the Kamloops Wellness Festival on June 17-19, 2011. I will have information about the Weston A. Price Foundation and information about eatkamloops.org. There will be free brochures on a number of topics such as: real milk, trans fats, why butter is better, cod liver oil, diet for cancer, alert on soy, and myths about cholesterol.

I will have copies of the WAPF booklet which gives guidelines about healthy eating. This is a great booklet which normally sells for $1.00 but will be free at the Kamloops Wellness Festival. This booklet is also good for giving to family members to help them understand more about nourishing traditional foods.

I have just received the new WAPF Healthy 4 Life Booklet. You can download a free PDF file of the booklet here. This booklet is a guide for eating nourishing traditional foods. If you would prefer a hard copy of the booklet, it will be available at the festival. The booklet normally sells for $10.00 but at the festival it will be only $6.00. This is the cost of production. WAPF Membership is $50.00 and includes the quarterly journal Wise Traditions. You can go online and join. Membership is how WAPF funds their good works. They do not receive funding from industry.

I will have the current copy of the Wise Traditions quarterly journal and some copies of back issues for sale. I have copies of the Wise Traditions special issue on Growing Healthy Babies and Heart Disease. There are fridge magnets for your favorite pregnant woman to help remind her to eat nourishing traditional foods. I will have some fun items like bumper stickers and buttons to tell the world where you stand!

We are having a draw for the Healthy 4 Life Booklet and a Weston A Price Foundation apron. We have a second draw for some homemade cosmetics: Rosemary Rose Shampoo, Rosemary Rose Wash, Sage Tooth Powder, Erika’s Salve, Pure Bee Wax Candles and Patchouli Soap. All the homemade cosmetic recipes can be found in Healthy Household. If you would like to have a chance to win our draw, please put your name and number into our draw box. We will do the draw on June 19, 2011 at the end of the festival day and call the winners.

Local Farmers & Ranchers in the Kamloops Region – FREE Download

To help celebrate the Kamloops Wellness Festival and all the wonderful local food producers that bring healthy food to our family’s table, we have just completed two PDF files called Local Farmers & Ranchers in the Kamloops Region. These PDF files give you all the information about our local farms and ranches in an easy to read format. There are two options available for free download:

Easy Printing Option: The first option is a standard letter size format (8.5″ x 11″) and is easy to print, but uses more paper. There are 19 pages printed on one side.

Booklet Printing Option: The second option is a booklet format, printed on 11″ x 8.5″ paper.? It uses ten sheets, but you need to know how to print on both sides of a page using your home printer. Print page 1 then print page 2 on the back of the first sheet. Continue like this until you have printed all 20 pages on 10 sheets of paper. When all the printing is done, you fold the pages in half and staple. In the end you will have a booklet that conveniently fits into a purse.
