Amanda Chantal Bacon: Feasting in Health
Health is something we tend to under appreciate until it’s gone. In this talk from Wanderlust’s Speakeasy, Amanda Bacon, healthy lifestyle advocate and founder of the Los Angeles-based company Moon Juice, shares her story of triumph and failure on her journey to wellness. As a teen, Amanda was plagued with a series of health and breathing issues that baffled doctors. Putting her faith in Western medicine, she dutifully took the pills they prescribed, getting no better in the process. It was only after a fortuitous meeting with an Ayurvedic practitioner that she decided to explore other options. Using a combination of dietary change, herbal remedies, meditation, and yoga she was able to find a solution to her medical problems. She has now made it her passion to share this knowledge with the world. From Wanderlust Squaw Valley in 2015
Hugh Acheson: Cooking from Scratch
Growing up on a diet of real food, Hugh Acheson knew he had to take action when his daughter returned from her first home economics class bearing recipes for pre-made, bacon-wrapped biscuits and box-mix red velvet cupcakes. This was not the made-from-scratch cooking he had come to know and love, and more importantly, it was a far cry from a curriculum that would teach his daughter and her classmates how to prepare real, healthy foods in the real world. In this talk from Wanderlust Speakeasy, Hugh Acheson, an accomplished chef, author, and James Beard Award winner, talks about what it means to cook from scratch and how failing to teach our children to do so is costing us their futures.
