A staple in our house has always been taco night. However, I got a pit in my stomach every time I read the back of the pre-packaged tortillas at the grocery store.
I knew that all these ingredients were not necessary in a real tortilla and didn’t want to feed that crap to my kids. So then I started making my tortillas using dried masa flour from the store and that was better, but turns out, still not good enough. It was like making bread from scratch at home, but doing it entirely from white flour!
If you want to make a meaningful impact in your kids’ diet and health, think about what they eat
And... that means you need to focus on your kid’s school lunches.
This July, I had the opportunity to travel to Kenya to visit Lewa to conduct preliminary research at one of the world’s largest hand axe sites. The purpose of my visit was to become familiar with the archaeological resources there in order to develop a plan for future research that would identify, document and protect the archaeological sites and then to use an experimental archaeology approach to interpret the archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to engage with and learn about the rich prehistory of Lewa.
Find out what Dr. Bill learned from his recent research in the Bolivian Altiplano and Peruvian Andes about how traditional groups there used ancestral approaches to detoxify heirloom varieties of potatoes to make them safe, nutrient dense and bioavailable! There are so many lessons we can learn from these time-honored approaches to make a difference in our modern diets.
