Hey, everyone, and welcome to Know Your Food with Wardee. I’m Wardee in Southwest Oregon, a traditional food blogger at and I’m glad you’re here!

This is the podcast where we’re all about ditching those poisonous processed foods, breaking free from the conventional food paradigm, and instead embracing whole foods raised, saved, and prepared with traditional methods. It’s fun, it’s delicious, and it’s healthy. You’re on your way… to looking good, feeling good, and most importantly, doing good!

You can find more about traditional cooking at my site GNOWFGLINS — it’s an acronym that stands for “God’s natural, organic, whole foods, grown locally, in season.” (My husband made it up and it stuck!)
