On Wednesday, March 26, I did a presentation on bone broth—its health benefits, traditional preparations, and uses—at our local Providence, RI Weston A. Price Foundation chapter meeting.
I was joined by Patrick Beck of New England Grass Fed, who spoke about rotational grazing strategies, animal health supported by forage-based diets, the nutritional profile of grass-fed beef, and more.
The event was held at Laid-back Fitness in Warwick, a primal/play/natural-movement-focused training center.
