"I’m enjoying all your information. You’re amazingly organized and have a terrific program. What I love the most is your love for God and living a life pleasing to Him." -Beverley S.

Attention: Christian families who know they should eat healthy but don't know where to start...

Hi, I'm Wardee. I'm a wife, mom, grandma, and traditional cook in the Boise area of Idaho... and I'm the owner and lead teacher of Traditional Cooking School's Bible-based cooking program.

I have a quick question for you:

Did you know you can still "eat what you want to eat" ...yet make your food healthy *and* it still tastes good?

Do you want me to show you how... within the next week... you can be serving a healthy home-cooked meal that your kids and hubby declare is "the best EVER, Mom!" and also where you...

  • are NOT confused any more about what to try or where to start because it all makes sense and lines up with God's word ...and you don't need a science degree to make sense of it
  • feel like supermom :) ...instead of like you're letting God and your family down by serving yet another frozen pizza :(
  • regularly dish up your family's favorite foods like mac-n-cheese, bread and butter, meat and potatoes, cinnamon rolls and cookies ...yet now made healthy according to God's design!
  • get your hubby and kids BEGGING for seconds ...and they have no idea it's healthy for them!
  • spend LESS time in the kitchen you have more family time, 'Date Night' with your husband, and your own down time, too!
  • are starting to lose weight AND get your energy back ...from eating healthier yourself!

If you said yes, then keep reading... :)

Before I tell you more about this opportunity to work with me in our Bible-based cooking program... in case you've never heard of Traditional Cooking School before, here's a quick introduction.

About Traditional Cooking School

I'm the lead teacher and owner of Traditional Cooking School.

I help Christian moms who know they should cook healthy for their family but don't know what to try or where to start... who don't want to spend hours in the kitchen and want their food to still taste great... like I was.

When I was a young mom with three children, we all had issues like food sensitivities and seasonal allergies, but it was especially bad with our third child, our son. He broke out in itchy red rashes all over his body within hours of birth.

The pediatrician gave us a steroid cream but I didn't want to use that because of the side effects. I got rid of all the grocery store cleaners, soaps, and lotions and replaced them with natural ones. That helped a little but still his rashes got worse and he itched so much the rashes bled. I felt like I was letting him and my family down... what was I doing wrong?

Then I learned about some old-fashioned cooking techniques (same ones the Bible mentions). They took less time and weren't as hard as I thought they might be. 

We still ate the family favorites we loved, like bread and butter, meat and potatoes, cinnamon rolls and cookies... just healthier!

The best part... within a few months, our son's rashes completely went away. 

It's been nearly 20 years now and my seasonal allergies are all cleared up, too, and the kids never got another ear or sinus infection. We rarely get colds or other illnesses. We have plenty of energy and our weight is stable, too. 

I've since devoted my life full-time to helping other Christian moms cook healthy for their families through our Bible-based cooking program... without needing to spend hours in the kitchen or being afraid the scale will creep higher from all the good food!

Today our home is filled with so much joy. My husband and I both work from home. Over the years, we homeschooled all 3 kids, then our oldest daughter got married, and... today we have two grandsons visiting regularly, too. I couldn't be happier. <3

So... if you're a mom or dad who loves good food and it's also very important to you to glorify God in your entire life, even down to what foods you and your family choose to eat (not because of any rules but because you really love Him and want to glorify Him)...

...then I'm pretty sure you'll be interested in what I'm going to share on this page.

It's the process our students follow to make and eat yummy, hearty meals that are actually healthy ...  

  • without spending hours in the kitchen
  • without overwhelm or confusion
  • where what they're eating lines right up with God's word
  • and no crazy unsustainable diets

…because you can still eat bread and butter, steak and potatoes, cinnamon rolls, and cookies!

And by the end of this page, you'll understand exactly how our Bible-based cooking program can help you do this, too.

Food Heals

Now you probably already know this... food heals, right? It's common sense.

I think most people would agree that diet changes are our first and best defense against sickness and disease.

And, you probably also know that even though most would agree with that... it's still really hard for most people to make meaningful and lasting changes in their diets. :(

Here are the common reasons people fail at eating healthy:

  • there's so much conflicting information out there that we become paralyzed and find ourselves unable to take any real steps forward because we don't know what's "right" or even where to start... so we don't do anything!
  • some diets seem so crazy and unsustainable... lots of weird, expensive ingredients and then the food tastes so horrible it's hard to last even a day ... much less the long haul!
  • some diets don't make any sense with the Bible ...for instance, many years ago, my family tried the no animal food vegan diet but we gave it up because we felt it was contradictory to the Bible's command to eat meat ...not to mention that we didn't feel that great due to the nutritional deficiencies the vegan diet created in us that only animal foods could solve
  • meal times turn into a fight... it's the mark of a happy family if everyone is smiling and asking for seconds, right? Yet if everyone's choking down the food, whining, or flat out refusing to take another bite... I don't know about you, but this mom (me) will turn to hearty meat and potatoes every time... because dinner is supposed to be joyful and peaceful and the food we eat goes a long way toward getting that!

The irony is that in our Bible-based cooking program, meat and potatoes are a staple healthy meal (as long as you prepare the right meat and potatoes).

And our program gives you a shortcut around all the difficulties I just mentioned, from making cooking simpler and wholesome, to dinnertime being joyous again, while lining everything up with the Bible and God's plan for healthy cooking.

Step-by-Step Efficient Plan

Our Bible-based cooking program is a step-by-step efficient plan we've created to help Christian families get healthier while still eating what they want to eat...

...without wasting time, energy, or money on any of the crazy diets that most people end up quitting in just a few days!

I'm going to share the exact details and what makes our program so different other healthy cooking plans in just a minute, but first I want to share why our Bible-based cooking program works so well.

See, rather than you spending time sorting through recipes, books, and websites to figure out which approach you should take...

...and the info conflicts anyway....

...or wasting money on specialty ingredients you'll probably never use again...

...our Bible-based program protects your time, money, and energy and gives you simple methods to make the dishes you love healthier (and they still taste great).

And not only do the methods and meals line up with the Bible, many of our students lose weight and get off or reduce their medications, too. (However, we can't give medical advice so you'll definitely want to work with your doctor on that.)

So if all this sounds good to you... then keep reading, because I'm going to show you how to use our methods in your kitchen. 


So to start out, let me explain that we eat and prepare foods according to the GNOWFGLINS way.

So many of our students get an 'aha' moment from learning and embracing GNOWFGLINS (g-NOWF-glinz) in their homes.

And by the way, even though it's a mouthful, no worries if your children end up saying "glow-muffins" or something like that... true story, one of our student's daughters called it that!

GNOWFGLINS is an acronym (created by my husband) that describes our process for delicious, healthy eating... 

It's given our family so much joy and healing... from food sensitivities, debilitating seasonal allergies, eczema, tummy troubles, and low energy.

And since we started eating this way (when our children were young), we hardly ever get sick... and our kids have never gotten a single ear infection or other infection since!

GNOWFGLINS combines ALL the keywords that you might find here or there in various books or resources: God's Natural, Organic, Whole Foods, Grown Locally, In Season

...and teaches you how to prepare those foods for the most nutrition and digestion.

GNOWFGLINS are what we eat, and we teach GNOWFGLINS and their preparation to others through our Bible-based cooking program at Traditional Cooking School!

To our knowledge, we are the first to put everything that's important about food together, starting with GOD, into a simple, step-by-step, week-by-week, healthy cooking program where you can still eat the dishes you love... only they're healthier...

...and you'll feel the joy of knowing you're honoring God and His design with every bite!

So if that's something you want... I'm going to walk you through the exact steps right now.

Step 1: Look Up

Step one in GNOWFGLINS is what we call "LOOK UP". It's the G in the acronym.

You see... everything we do, including what we cook and eat, needs to be anchored in truth and align with God's design.

We know that food is medicine, it's our nourishment, and that's by God's design.

Sure, there are diets out there that claim to be "healthy". But when we look closely, we can tell they're not consistent with God's Word.

For instance, take the vegan diet: a person eats no animal foods whatsoever.

Personally, we don't believe this is Biblical. And there's even scientific proof to back this up, such as nutritional deficiencies that can only be solved through animal foods.

So in this step #1 of our Bible-based cooking program (it's the "why" behind the "how"), we check in with the Bible to make sure the food itself or the method of preparing it lines up and makes sense with God's word, His plan, and His character.

Because, otherwise... what's the point?

"You’ve shown me how to transform our food from something we eat into something that heals and nourishes our bodies. I love being able to prepare healthy foods with my family… Praise the Lord for His beautiful ways!" -Michelle P.

If you want to live for God and yet are eating apart from His design, there's this feeling deep down inside that we're not being true to Him.

I know for me, before we started eating how I teach, I had a niggling feeling of guilt when I wasn't true to this step. Like I was letting my husband and kids down. 

I really, really dislike feeling this way. I want to do my best and I always know deep down whether or not God is happy with my choices and actions.

In this part of the GNOWFGLINS process ("look up"), you'll:

  • select the healthiest ingredients for your dishes (meats, fats, grains, sweeteners, veggies, etc.)... 

    ...i.e. foods that are raised and grown according to God's design...
  • avoid the pitfalls of the Standard American Diet ...non-nutritious "foods" that didn't exist prior to modern times when people were healthier ... like trans fats, white sugar, highly processed veggie oils, etc. ...

    ...because God didn't make these foods and eliminating them is essential for managing (or even healing) diabetes, weight gain, heart disease, inflammation, hormone imbalances, skin rashes, allergies, and more!

A quick example of what you might experience when you follow a plan like this that's grounded in truth and God's design... Lisa got off all meds and is down 4 sizes!

"Traditional Cooking School's Bible-based cooking program has been a wonderful blessing! Having a plan, a group to share with and teaching by Wardee and all the ladies who give so much time. I am learning how to prioritize my time by putting my family's health before "stuff". Positive wonderful things can also be a time robber. Now I plan ahead so I actually have more time. I am off all meds and am down four sizes. My husband feels better he is more productive and is off most meds. It's getting easier to plan, shop and cook." -Lisa L.

If you want us to personally help YOU finally stick with healthy cooking (that lines up with God's word), please keep reading, because I'm going to explain more about how you can work with me in our Bible-based cooking program so it can help you and your family, too.

Step 2: Step Out (Simple!)

The next part of GNOWFGLINS is what we call "STEP OUT"... or take action.

This step is by necessity simple. Not only is this how I cook myself, I know that most people need simple or it's just not going to be doable day after day.

So in our Bible-based cooking program, we go through the fundamental skills (both how and why) of healthy cooking and I show you how to use simple Traditional Cooking methods to make the meals you love most as healthy as possible... so what you're eating doesn't cause tummy aches, reactions, nutritional deficiencies, or cause weight gain.

"I used to not think too much about what I ate except in terms of "good" vs "bad." TCS has helped me understand that there is more to that. I have more information now as to why something is better for me or why a certain prep method is better than another." —Rebecca J.

By the way, many of these methods are mentioned in the Bible!

And once you learn our simple traditional preparation methods, you can apply them to your favorite meals and dishes to make them more healthy, too!

Plus, I also share tons of recipes from my own home, like cinnamon rolls, fried chicken, and more.

I guide you through it all one week at a time. The simple skills build on each other... you'll discover and practice one skill, get comfortable with that one, then add the next.

Within the very first week, you will learn things to help you put healthy, home-cooked meals on the table that your family will LOVE to eat!

"I ate a very clean diet by the time I actually joined TCS but now I have been able to expand my diet to include foods I couldn't eat before (beans, grains, corn, etc) because now they are traditionally prepared. We have more variety in food on a daily basis and nearly every snack and condiment has been replaced with a traditionally homemade version!" -Carla B.

We all know it takes time to build habits, so in this step, we've created a path for you that doesn't go too fast or too slow. Like Goldilocks. :)

"I work 2 full time jobs and have for many years. I would eat ready-to-eat or quick-cooking meals. We were malnourished basically and constantly would get ill. Since I started changing our food, we have been getting sick less and have been getting more nutrients. There is still a lot to heal, but we're making progress." -Rebecca E.

You go fast enough so you don't lose momentum. Yet without overwhelm or confusion because everything makes sense with the Bible and God's design for our health.

And at the same time, the simple step-by-step tutorials (both video and print) are at a doable pace. We recommend learning one new task per week.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed and not being able to keep up, you will actually get there with your health goals!

For example, after starting with our program and following it week by week, Maureen started feeling better ...and she lost 100 pounds without even trying!

"I cannot tell you how "at home" I felt in Traditional Cooking School's Bible-based cooking classes. Wardee's presentations were "from the heart" and I could tell she just wanted to help others.

And guess what happened? Though I wasn't trying to lose weight during this exciting time, I lost 100 pounds without even trying. I was following what I learned from Wardee with a particular focus on a gut-healing diet. My symptoms started improving then and I am still improving to this day. I don't feel sick all the time, my brain fog is practically gone, I have my energy back, and my monthly female cycles are so much better. These classes were the turning point for me." -Maureen V.

Many people often wonder whether this kind of food actually tastes good. The answer is yes it does!

No cardboard here! 

Our food tastes so good, my family doesn't feel the lack at all. And yet, we eat pretty much 99% healthy.

We have no need or desire to "break the diet"... because our food is that good.

It's no sacrifice to eat this way ...because we're not sacrificing!

(By the way, you'll get to experience even more of these recipes yourself in the weekly menu plans we give to our students.)

Step 3: Connect

And the final step of the GNOWFGLINS lifestyle is to CONNECT... and bear fruit.

Have you noticed that any time you're interested in improving your life in some way, most people you talk to are uninterested? They might clam up or even be negative about it?

There's no judgment here, we all have our own priorities and have the right to make our own choices.

Yet, it's hard to ignore how hurtful and lonely it can be to be on a journey where we can't share it with anyone.

That's why our Bible-based cooking program includes several ways for you to connect with like-minded people...

Like through a private online community where you can fellowship, ask questions, share what you're learning and even show off your successes. Which, by the way, is on our own website, not on social media because we, like so many Christians, have concerns with privacy and security.

Also, through monthly Q&A calls that I host for students in our program to answer your questions and do "makeovers" for families in the program.

"Wow this was my first my first roundtable meeting and it was amazing! I've already watched it twice and I feel like I need to watch it again and take notes! So informative and helpful, truly! Thanks so much and God Bless! P.S. Absolutely loved that you prayed at the beginning :-)" -Kathy C.

"Being able to discuss issues I'm having with the courses or any of the things within TCS in a private group is priceless. Everyone is so friendly and supportive, so willing and capable of helping in a positive manner." -Tammy M.

We also created a mobile app for our students so you can post or share in the private group or watch your class videos on your phone or tablet, too. 

And finally, we host Live Masterclasses and Accountability Challenges so our students will be able to go through certain modules together! We've heard time and time again that our students feel inspired and motivated by this accountability and also from the joy of working on the same tasks at the same time as countless other families across the world ... all while getting to share the experience, insights, reactions, and results in our private group!

This step of connection and togetherness is sooo important to your success. We added it to our plan so you can feel confidence in the GNOWFGLINS way while you're getting supported and fellowshipping with others who are on the same journey.

Because... no one cooks alone. And no one should feel alone when making these changes! 

It's all about bearing fruit and growing on this journey. We're better together. :)

The results for those who tap into our Bible-based cooking program and community are incredible... here's what Lynn shared:

"I am 5 weeks into Traditional Cooking School, and I just wanted to say I'm so happy I joined. I've made more changes in my diet and tried more new things than I did in the whole year I was trying to transition to traditional foods on my own. It's really made the connection for me between nutritional information and how that equates to what I should serve for dinner and how to properly prepare it. Thanks so much, Wardee!" -Lynn S., WI

Quick Review :-)

Really quick, I'd like to go over the GNOWFGLINS process I just shared, from step one to three. 

Step #1... we LOOK UP and establish a foundation of the healthy cooking "whys" that line up with God's word. We're trying to tether every single thing we might do in the kitchen to God's plan for our nourishment. We know He designed food as medicine for our bodies and that when we're not well, our first defense is diet changes. Once we know this, then we can act accordingly. 

Which takes us to step #2... we STEP OUT and take action. UNcomplicated, simple, step-by-step tutorials from me and other teachers in our Bible-based cooking program that follow God's design... so you will create delicious, wholesome meals for your family.

Not only will you spend less time in the kitchen, your husband, kids, and grandkids will be asking for seconds and might not even realize how healthy the food is because they love it so much!

As a side benefit, many of our students lose weight, get off medications, and find themselves with sustained energy and joy throughout the day... instead of dragging.

And finally, step #3... we CONNECT... because no one wants to cook alone or feel alone making these kind of changes! How sad that would be. Instead, you'll be part of our private online community (including monthly calls, accountability challenges, and live masterclasses) to share what you're learning, ask your questions, and enjoy sweet fellowship.

Following this simple GNOWFGLINS process has helped 11,584 families actually succeed at preparing the healthiest (and most delicious) foods... and THIS ability often makes the difference between:

  • worsening ...or managing (even healing) diabetes
  • storing fat ...or losing fat
  • suffering with tummy aches or rashes ...or having no reactions at all
  • developing nutritional deficiencies or hormone imbalances that lead to feeling sluggish and dragging ...or being full of energy to tackle the day
  • sinking further into disease ...or actually healing stubborn health conditions

I hope you can see by all the testimonials on this page, plain and simple, what we do works...

"Our complete thought of food, preparation, and consumption is so different now. We eat and feel so much better and knowing what is going into my food gives me complete comfort at meal time. I also find it easier to plan and prepare. I keep all the staples on hand for our favorites and have found that most all recipes use the same basics so it is very cost effective and simple. Thank you." -Mikki I.

"Thank you!! As I was making our monthly menu plan yesterday, I realized that a big majority of our recipes now come from Traditional Cooking School! Thank you for this service! I have a family of picky eaters, and yet some of our absolute favorite meals have come from you. Awesome!!" -Heather C.

"Before Traditional Cooking School, my family ate the Standard American Diet and we were trying to find a healthier but not boring way of food prep and eating and the reasons behind each. Now with TCS, I don’t feel the need to give up my favorites or any category of foods. Instead, I like the challenge of tweaking the recipes to embrace a new way of prep or finding a better recipe all together." -anon

"I love your videos and want more “TRUE” answers. I watch other videos with disappointing information, I only watch yours now! I’ve learned after my Cancer diagnoses that my body can actually kill the Cancer!! Then I came across Wardee and bingo, the light bulb lit! I can help myself naturally to heal with fermented food! My lungs are healing, so my oncologist agreed. Bless you Wardee and family!" -Emelinda D.

"I have been trying to go back to basics for a while but did not have a good plan or knowledge of how to proceed. There’s so much out on the Internet I didn’t know where to start. Thank you!" -Kimberly J.

So if you want to stop feeling confused by all the weird-tasting, unsustainable, and non-Biblical diets out there and would rather let us help you skip the confusion and difficulty... you can spend LESS time in the kitchen and truly ENJOY the foods you're eating (including bread and butter)...

...and possibly lose weight and get off medications ...

"So far the best course/material I have seen out there. Not just the basic stuff. Very, very useful and interesting. THANKS" -Lenka H.

"If not for Traditional Cooking School, I would be sitting in front of a television trying to get up energy to prepare foods at home. I would still be over 200 pounds and very depressed. (I have cut back on most all my medications and I’m breathing better and have better stamina.) My grandson would not be excelling in school as he is now and would not have the energy to play outdoors like he does. My son-by-love is working the farm and building our home and teaching me so much." -Debbie L., Mansfield, MO

"I was searching for how to prepare healthier food for my family. Now Traditional Cooking School is my first stop for information." -Jennifer B.

"For many years, this has become my one and only Christmas gift from my family to me. I can't do anything else knowing how bad the SAD (Standard American Diet) is. DH & my health continues to get better, and our 3 boys are extremely healthy..." -Sherri M.

"...your website is now my “go to” for almost all things. Mostly recipes, but also health related questions as well as products that you recommend. I trust you, Wardee and team! The fact that you are Believers helps with that. I know you aren’t perfect, but you want to be honest and informative to the best of your God given ability, and I value that a ton! Thank you for being real and honest about so many things!!" -Debi H.

"I read a lot about how I should be cooking and consuming more traditional foods but I was really intimidated by the process and afraid that I would make something and not know what to do with it. Now, I have actually tried so much and realize how easy it can be (thanks TCS challenges!) and I know how to work traditional foods and their cooking methods into my everyday life better than before." -anon

"I played hopscotch all over the internet and Pinterest trying to figure out how to find good recipes, methods of preparation, and encouragement. We didn’t eat certain foods because we had been led to believe that they were bad for us. Now with Traditional Cooking School, we have healthy food prepared by traditional methods. We have resumed eating bread - sourdough and einkorn grains and have a variety of healthy beverages to choose from now." -anon

"I used a lot of pre-packaged foods now I use ingredients. I am confident using different ingredients to pull together a meal that is fast and nutritious in a variety of ways." -Vicki H.

"Before TCS I was reeling from a pregnancy loss and didn't know anything about traditional cooking. Now I have an almost 4 year old, another baby on the way and a kitchen full of experiments. My cooking style has changed greatly and I am so thankful for everything I have learned." -Cevy K.

"I used to eat too much processed food and have bad digestion. I've really been trying to improve my digestion and the fermentation challenge was a HUGE help!

I love that your program is a Bible-based, traditional approach to food preparation. I never knew that these things were so important and now I'm trying to implement them as much as I can. I'm also trying to teach my kids (who are now in their 20's) about this. Two have moved out and two still live at home, but they are beginning to understand that this is important. Once I get them hooked on it, they can start doing it themselves, so when I'm gone (many years from now), they can keep it up and teach their kids." -Karen B.

And You Get A FREE T-Shirt That Shares How God's Foods Help Us "Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good"!

"Look good, feel good, do good..." There's not a better slogan to live by as you're learning how to naturally and healthfully nourish your body through all its ages and stages!


Because this is what often happens as we care for ourselves through nourishing GNOWFGLINS foods!

Remember, GNOWFGLINS are the foods we strive to eat for God's glory because He designed them for us — "God's Natural, Organic, Whole Foods, Grown Locally, In Season".

  • First, look good: although God doesn't promise that we'll have earthly beauty, when we eat well, our appearance often improves... with such things as our skin's tone, our hair's new growth and sheen, perhaps weight loss, and just an overall healthier glow. Those around us can't help but notice, too!
  • Second, feel good: also, we tend to get more energy and focus, our digestion improves, hormones balance, and many other healing changes take place on the inside.
  • Finally, do good: these healing changes empower us to better serve and nurture our family and friends as our heart's truly desire to do... all for God's glory!

To help you keep this idea front and center (literally!), I'm sending you a FREE 100% cotton t-shirt that will remind you and your family that eating GNOWFGLINS for God's glory can help us "look good, feel good, and do good"!

And if anyone says, "GNOWFGLINS? What?" you can turn around and show them the back of your t-shirt... it explains what GNOWFGLINS means. They're the foods we eat! — "God's Natural, Organic, Whole Foods, Grown Locally, In Season"

This t-shirt is completely free (even free shipping) with your yearly membership* in Traditional Cooking School's Bible-based cooking program! Retail value: $25.

*not included with monthly

Psst... we ordered sample after sample of t-shirts and discarded most in our quest for the comfiest t-shirt. In the end, we chose the one we're sending you (pictured here). It's a super-soft 100% cotton that feels so good... I am pretty sure you will love wearing it as much as I do! <3

If not for Traditional Cooking School, I would still be over 200 pounds...

"If not for Traditional Cooking School, I would be sitting in front of a television trying to get up energy to prepare foods at home. I would still be over 200 pounds and very depressed. (I have cut back on most all my medications and I’m breathing better and have better stamina.) My grandson would not be excelling in school as he is now and would not have the energy to play outdoors like he does. My son-by-love is working the farm and building our home and teaching me so much." ~Debbie L., Mansfield, MO

  • Exactly how to add healthy fats and real salt to your family meals (Are you getting mixed messages about fat and salt?

  • How to make healthy snacks that the kids actually want to eat (and won’t spoil their appetites for dinner),
  • How to handle corn — that is a special case that you don’t want to miss,
  • Plus — an entire video lesson is devoted to preparing tender, grass- and pasture-fed, meats including BBQ hamburgers and steaks (a treat for the meat-and-potato lover in your home) and roast chicken.

My son saw we're not just pulling the wool over his eyes LOL

"I was able to prepare a soup for our son that returned home from technical school & was not feeling so well. It is a better version of a bone broth soup than I had been preparing. After eating it, he saw me catching up on some TCS classes and realized that the video I was watching (Fundamentals II) had much of the info about healthy soups. He realized I wasn't just pulling the wool over his eyes. LOL I used Bone broth as the base, added parsley, ginger, garlic, onions, leeks, carrots, celery, turmeric, oregano, and a couple of small potatoes, letting it all simmer. Next, strained all of that, put in the Vitamix and back into the soup with a can of coconut milk. Tasted like healing! We classify your videos as "legitimate" videos!" ~Sheila B.

Course 2: Sourdough A to Z

This course is based on one simple idea: Imagine if 5 expert, traditional cooks invited you over for tea and blessed you with all of their secrets for creating healthy, delicious breads that thrill the pickiest eater, satisfy the biggest eater, and support the healthiest eater, all while honoring a frugal budget, fitting into a busy lifestyle and bringing your family closer together.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • How to start and care for your sourdough starter — the easy, set-it-and-forget-it method anyone can use, How to make a Gluten Free starter
  • Committed, practical or laissez-faire — What is your sourdough style? (Fit sourdough into your life the easy way)
  • How to use spelt (ancient wheat) flour to drastically reduce gluten, while also baking light, fluffy loaves of bread
  • The surprisingly healthy “left-overs” your starter will gladly eat (save money by making other foods do double duty as starter food)
  • The “Bucket” method for creating a sourdough starter that raises itself (no more waiting overnight for your breads to rise)
  • How to adapt any recipe to sourdough (and give new life to your favorite family meals)
  • How to make tender, mild and sweet breads for every diet (gluten- friendly or gluten-free, all diets are sourdough compatible)
  • How to dehydrate and preserve a starter (save some, give some to a friend, and have some ready just in case you want to quickly refresh your “mother” starter)

Here are just a few of the recipes you’ll find in the Sourdough A to Z eCourse:

  • Golden Fluffy-Beyond-Your-Wildest-Dreams Pancakes (no more slaving over a hot griddle - this one 10” pancake will feed your whole family)
  • Espresso Chocolate Cake with Coconut Butter Cream Frosting (an easy-to-serve gourmet delight with down-home charm)
  • No-Knead Sourdough Bread (the classic recipe updated for today’s busy lifestyles)
  • The Famous Better-Sit-Down-Before-You-Try-Them Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls (make any day feel like a celebration)
  • Celebration Crepes (layer this french treat with berries and homemade cream cheese for delightful crepe “cakes”)
  • Plus, muffins, tortillas and tortilla chips, spelt sandwich bread, english muffins, crackers, pizza crust, honey whole wheat bread, gingerbread, pasta, pocket bread, corn bread and fritters, donuts, biscuits, pot pie, scones

Just amazing...

"The Sourdough lessons have been just amazing. I had enjoyed baking with sourdough for over a year, but now I feel a new inspiration and love finding all the wonderful things that I can do." ~Millie C.

Course 3: Cultured Dairy and Simple Cheeses

Does dairy give you tummy trouble? Once you know the secrets of how to prepare dairy for maximum flavor and easy digestion, you are well on your way to enjoying milk again.

In this course you will learn how to make cheeses, drinks, spreads and sauces that unlock the power of milk’s fat-soluble vitamins, probiotics, and healthy fats.

The beneficial organisms that you add during the culturing process cause an explosion of life-affirming vitamins, minerals and enzymes that you can’t get from any other food or cooking process. It’s truly a cornerstone to healthy living.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • How to make sour cream, creme fraiche and whole-milk buttermilk
  • How to make cultured butter and buttermilk
  • How to make clabbered milk and cheese
  • How to make traditional yogurt and just-like-the store yogurt

Food that heals and nourishes...

"You’ve shown me how to transform our food from something we eat into something that heals and nourishes our bodies. I love being able to prepare healthy foods with my family… Praise the Lord for His beautiful ways!" ~Michelle P.

Course 4: Lacto-Fermentation

Did your Grandmother serve pickles for dinner? Long before the grocery store sold pickles in glass jars, moms knew that serving homemade pickles at dinner time was a great way to top off a meal and stop tummy aches before they started.

In this course you will learn how to “pickle” foods to make them more nutritious, stay fresh longer, and taste even better by letting the food develop its own complex flavors and pleasing textures.

As a bonus, properly fermented foods contain vitamins, enzymes, and active cultures — which help your gut, your immune system, and your digestion. Since 80% of your immune system is in your gut, serving “pickled” foods is one of the best things you can do to help your family stay healthy during cold and flu season.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • How and why lacto-fermentation is so good for you and your family (I am especially fond of this topic since I wrote the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Lacto-Fermentation. I hope to share my passion with you.)
  • How to ferment fruits — whole fruits, chutneys and preserves
  • How to ferment veggies — krauts, pickles, salsas and relishes
  • How to make your own mayo, mustard, ketchup, horseradish and hummus
  • How to make kombucha, kvass, natural sodas and advanced water kefir
  • How to make bean paste, natto and tempeh
  • How to make clabbered milk, cultured butter, yogurt and soft cheeses
  • How to pickle fish, eggs, lacto-ferment red meat and cure olives
  • How to create a simple sourdough starter that you can use on a moment’s notice to whip up a batch of homemade pancakes, waffles, and crepes (there’s also some advanced recipes here for days when you have a little more time)
  • How to plan probiotic meals
  • Simple no-fail formulas that will have you turning out lacto-fermented foods using your imagination and whatever happens to be in season
  • Plus, a bonus lesson! — Fermented honey (raw honey is great, but watch what happens when you add the benefits of fermentation. Amazing.)

More TRUE answers!

"I love your videos and want more “TRUE” answers. I watch other videos with disappointing information, I only watch yours now! I’ve learned after my Cancer diagnoses that my body can actually kill the Cancer!! Then I came across Wardee and bingo, the light bulb lit! I can help myself naturally to heal with fermented food! My lungs are healing, so my oncologist agreed. Bless you Wardee and family!" !Emelinda D.

Up a few notches...

"You’ve shown me that what I thought was a healthy way of eating could be stepped up a notch. OK, a few notches!" ~Wendy N.

Course 5: Dehydrating

Do you want to give your family peak-season freshness, flavor and nutrition even during the bleak winter months? Then this course is for you.

You will learn how to dehydrate every food group — fruits, veggies, broth, meats, beans, grains, eggs, dairy, herbs, and mother cultures — and then bring them back to full richness, flavor and vitality whenever you want a quick, nutritious meal.

Why does this matter? Well, if you’ve ever tried to buy grocery store tomatoes in February, you know they look like plastic and taste like rubber erasers. No wonder most kids say they hate tomatoes!

Dehydrated Foods:

  • Store well at room temperature for long periods of time
  • Retain vitamins, enzymes, and other nutrients
  • Require less time and energy to preserve than other cooking methods
  • Are lightweight and portable (this is handy for camping and traveling with real foods, especially if you have a large family and can’t bring your entire garden along)
  • Plus, they’re fun to make and taste great!

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • Why dehydration is often the best choice for preserving the health and vitality of your food
  • What tools and equipment are best
  • How to dehydrate and where to get the best foods for dehydration
  • How to store your freshly dehydrated food
  • How to dehydrate fruit — sliced, whole, candied and fruit leather
  • How to dehydrate vegetables — sliced, diced, shredded, powdered, pureed, and mashed
  • How to dehydrate herbs, beans, grains, eggs, dairy, broth and stock
  • How to dehydrate meats — jerky, pre-cooked and raw liver
  • How to dehydrate mother cultures — sourdough and other lacto-fermentations
  • How to cook with dried foods — breakfast, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts
  • How to make trail foods for hiking and camping
  • How to ferment dried foods
  • Plus, a bonus lesson! — I have even included a special recipe for Kombucha Scoby Jerky. Yummy.

"I love the resource you are to cooking traditionally!" ~Lori P.

Course 6: Real Food Kids

Who does the cooking around your house? Would you like to take the day off from time to time? Would you like to have confidence, that your children will be able to cook their own healthy meals now and when they grow up?

This course will help you create your own Family Kitchen that churns out amazing food, laughter, silly songs, and life-long healthy cooking skills.

The course is based on one simple idea: “Everyone eats, everyone cooks.”

You Will Learn How To:

  • Create your own inspiring cooking philosophy for your Family Kitchen (All you have to do is answer a few simple questions and then press “go” on your computer screen. The computer creates a frame-worthy piece of art that the whole family can enjoy.)
  • Develop routines that work for every child at every age
  • Help the kids develop a healthy approach to kitchen safety
  • Help the kids recognize real foods. If it comes from a box or a can, it’s probably not real food! But you already knew that. ;-)
  • Develop your unique teaching style (Plus, how to hold onto your grace and patience when all chaos breaks loose… it happens.)
  • Choose the best kitchen tools and gadgets for kids (and instantly spot which ones to avoid at all costs)
  • Organize your Family Kitchen to be kid-friendly (Hint: We keep our drinking cups in the bottom drawer. Why? So that the toddler can help by putting water glasses on the table. It looks weird but it works.)
  • Turn kitchen “chores” into enjoyable acts of kindness and service
  • Set up kids of all ages for cooking success: Babies and Toddlers; Swing Cooks (ages 3-6); Line Cooks (ages 7-11); Sous Chefs (ages 12-15); and Head Chefs (ages 16-18)
  • Let the kids succeed on their own in the Family Kitchen creating kid-friendly breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks and desserts (These meals are easy for kids to make, nutritious and enjoyable for the whole family to eat — rarely do you find a kids’ cooking book or class that has all 3 of these qualities. If you’ve ever been guilt-tripped into tasting a Spaghetti-o muffin, you know what I’m talking about.)
  • Plus, a bonus class called Napkin Origami and Folding — Sometimes there are just too many cooks in the kitchen. Keep the kids busy decorating the dinner table with beautiful and functional napkin decorations. (This is perfect for the child who is too young to stir the big pot or who has already finished their cooking job and still wants to help impress Daddy.)

From the bottom of our hearts...

"I am learning things that I know will help my children. We can teach them how to use food the way God intended. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! This course is extremely timely, and, to be frank, an answer to prayer." ~Mary K.

Course 7: Allergy-Free Cooking

Does your child have a food allergy? Do you have to send special (often, boxed or pre-packaged) food with her to sleep-overs? Does she have to sit at the “peanut free” table at school?

This course shows you how to cook around your family’s food allergies and sensitivities while serving nutritious and delicious meals that give your child every possible advantage for healing from food sensitivities — all on a shoe-string budget.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • What Allergy Free Cooking is (what it isn’t) and how to reclaim your power in the kitchen
  • The best tools and cooking equipment for your Allergy Free Kitchen (taught by real mothers who’ve been down this road before and know what’s at stake)
  • How to cook Dairy Free: main dishes, side dishes, fermented foods, desserts, and homemade milk substitutes that taste as good (or better) than the dairy-full version. (Plus, you can say good-by to tummy aches and frantic phone calls from the school nurse.)
  • How to cook Egg Free: homemade egg substitutes, desserts, and baked goods that are as light, fluffy and tender as anything you’d see in an artisan bakery.
  • How to cook Gluten Free: breakfasts, main dishes, breads, baked goods, sourdough, and desserts that are easy to digest, stay fresh tasting, and look as beautiful and inviting as their gluten-full cousins.
  • How to cook Grain Free: breakfasts, main dishes, breads, baked goods, and desserts that allow you to indulge in your love of comfort food without any of the consequences. Here’s your free pass to eat and feel happy.
  • How to cook Sugar Free: desserts, beverages, fermented foods, jams and preserves. Give your taste buds a delicious sweet treat that won’t wreak havoc with your system.
  • How to cook Nut Free: Eating nut-free doesn’t have to mean restrictive or boring — this lesson will show you how to cut out boredom, and ramp up the nutritional value of your favorite foods.
  • How to work around special allergies; plus, I’ll show you the latest research and hope for breaking free from allergies.
  • And, a bonus class! — Ancient Grains. This lesson will show you how to make breads that stand up to being slathered with your favorite spread, turned into sandwiches or enjoyed all on their own. Ancient grains are naturally low in gluten, easy to digest and (once you know the secret) are surprisingly easy to turn into bakery- beautiful loaves of bread.

Enjoying our food greatly...

"Our family is experiencing greater health and nutrition and enjoying our food greatly. My family is much less resistant to the changes in our diet since using your course. This is money well spent and I will continue to subscribe." ~Robin M.

Course 8: Cooking Outside

Want to do more cooking outside, beat the heat and make life more fun and interesting? Even simple meals taste better when cooked outdoors. The fresh air and the invigorating feeling of being outdoors really work up an appetite!

Plus, cooking outside helps slow the family down. My kids will sit around a fire and talk for hours, instead of barreling through 15 minutes of eating at the inside table. It is a great way to connect without having to plan a big vacation or outing.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • How to set up a complete outdoor kitchen on a shoe-string budget (You probably have most of what you need already hanging around the house.)
  • Transform a portable roaster oven into an outdoor bakery oven… and make an ooey-gooey fruit cobbler
  • Convert a dehydrator into a professional-quality yogurt maker… and make delicious, thick, raw milk yogurt from scratch
  • How to hard “boil” eggs, and make tender baked potatoes in the crockpot
  • How to bake sourdough english muffins in a roaster oven (I also share my secret for giving english muffins their cute shape without fussing with patting, rolling and cutting them out)
  • How to cook in glass jars — make fun, whimsical, individual cheesecakes, muffins and savory foods. Glass jars hold up great to high heat and pressure, so you can stop worrying about keeping the cooking heat at a steady perfect temperature
  • How to cook on a camp stove
  • How to grill on direct and indirect heat
  • How to cook over an open fire
  • How to cook in a sun oven
  • How to smoke meat — (This one is a favorite with all my kids.)
  • And a few more bonus outdoor cooking techniques, too!

It has become my one and only Christmas gift...

"Many years I didn't think I could swing the payment to continue your classes… it has become my one and only Christmas gift from my family to me. I can't do anything else knowing how bad SAD (Standard American Diet) is. DH & my health continues to get better, and our 3 boys are extremely healthy..." ~Sherri M.

Course 9: Einkorn Baking

Grown by farmers over 5,000 years ago… Einkorn is civilization’s first wheat. It’s healthy and tasty — and my family loves it! Einkorn’s gentler, older form of gluten has a light nutty texture and no harsh “health food” flavor.

This is the wheat that families used long before hybridization, GMOs, and chemical processing. It’s as close as you can get to baking exactly like people did in ancient times. And now, careful, nurturing artisan farmers are bringing it back — growing it on their small family farms so that you can enjoy its flavors and health benefits.

After more than a year baking with Einkorn exclusively, I’m delighted to bring you a whole class on Einkorn Baking and share my tips and tricks with you.

In This Course, You Will Learn:

  • Why bake with Einkorn? Einkorn has half the phytic acid of modern wheat… and after soaking and souring… you’ve got a powerhouse grain that boosts mineral absorption, bakes into beautiful loaves, supports small farms with the highest artisan production standards, and tastes light and delicate… not at all like “health” food.
  • How to use Einkorn… It is stickier than spelt, and easier on the tummy than modern wheat, however, Einkorn has its own quirks and personality. I’ll show you how to bring out Einkorn’s best flavors and how to substitute it into your favorite baking recipes.
  • How to mill Einkorn and how to sift it to make the grains bake up into beautiful cakes, cookies and muffins. I'll even show you how to sprout it first to boost the nutrition!
  • How to make an Einkorn sourdough starter from scratch or change over your existing flavorful starter to an even healthier version, without giving up the tangy sourdough flavor of your existing starter. I’ll also show you how to feed and care for your starter… just a couple simple steps and you’re on your way!
  • How to make light, nutty breakfasts… pancakes, soaked blueberry-lemon muffins, traditional creamy porridge, and savory bacon-cheddar buttermilk biscuits. Yum!
  • Special main dishes for lunch and dinner… grilled pizza, chilled Einkorn Grain Salad (for summer picnics), and more.
  • How to make snacks that the kids love (and are fully approved by leading Einkorn growers)… mouth-watering scones, chewy dark-chocolate cherry-almond granola bars, and Einkorn Champion Crackers.
  • Ready to dive into dessert? It’s all here: Cookies (with lots of variations), Banana Bread Muffins, and Raspberry-Chocolate Tea Cake.
  • Breads galore! You’ll become a master Einkorn baker in no time with recipes like: No-Knead Bread, Sandwich Loaf & Dinner Rolls, and thick, soft, chewy, Indian flat bread – so delicious!

You made the transition easier...

"You’ve helped make this transition easier... as trying to go through it on my own was very confusing. Having your classes gives me the focus and the guidance I need." ~Billie Y.

Course 10: Pressure Cooking I

Pressure cooking is so fast and efficient, and produces amazingly tender and moist foods. In this course, I'm showing you how to use traditional methods (like soaking) and whole food ingredients in your pressure cooking so it's also healthy!

And... fun is important, too, right? I believe we should LOVE what we do in the kitchen and savor the creativity and accomplishments. Pressure cooking allows us to do more with less. More in less time. More complicated dishes easily and with less mess.

Seeing other moms got me over the hump...

"My family had fun together watching kid videos and making those recipes. But the biggest benefit for our family was me seeing all the other moms on video that really nourish their families. It got me over the hump from doing it 60% to more like 97%. Which is a big deal as my son had really bad teeth… I just had it in my head before that no one could really be that ‘perfect’ in their cooking. Now we have a better diet and I also have more energy mostly because I now make all baked goods, which I love, sourdough." ~Marly H., Hudson Valley NY

I'm literally in tears!

"I’m literally in tears watching Lessons 7, 8, and 10 of the Women’s Health eCourse. I was diagnosed with PCOS years ago after years of declining health, and yet treating it with progesterone did not alleviate my symptoms. I have cysts on my thyroid and ovaries, and despite various symptoms of adrenal fatigue, hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, inflammation, and a host of other ailments, I was not treated for any of these issues.

My health has continued to decline and just within the past two weeks I have had some very serious issues that landed me at the doctor’s office and then the ER this past Sunday.

After following TCS for many months, I finally decided to join when I saw that this course was being offered. Everything that is being addressed are the very things that I need to do for my health. I am so overjoyed that many of the things I prayed about and had been seeking answers to for YEARS, are being discussed in this course.

I have felt so alone for so long and even though I made very dramatic changes to my diet (like quitting sugar over 2 years ago), and have been preparing many traditional and healing foods for years now, I had not found complete healing and have gotten worse.

I wanted to say thank you to you all for allowing the Lord to use you to bring this knowledge to so many. I feel that this course was designed specifically for me. In all my years of research, I have yet to find a resource like TCS that covers every area of health and healing that I have been looking for all in one place.

Thank you Wardee, Haniya, Megan, and Lindsey for sharing your wisdom and creating this class. You have touched me and renewed my hope. May God’s blessings be upon you." ~Ajene G.

Thank you! She tackled the complicated issues!

"I am so impressed by the in-depth discussion with Dr. Lane in Lesson 4 of the Women's Health eCourse! Thank you giving her the time to fully discuss all the complicated issues she addressed. She did a good job with the spiritual side as well as the practical side of these important life decisions." ~Lee B.

Course 13: Healthy Baby

Breast milk is the perfect food that sustains our babies for months, even years. From the very beginning, breast milk colonizes the infant gut with probiotics, seals the gut lining so particles can’t leak through, and so much more.

Yet babies don’t stay babies forever. Eventually, we all must transition from milk to “meat”.

Is there a way to introduce solid foods that maintains breast milk’s protective effects and where children learn to LOVE all kinds of real, nourishing foods? 

The answer is a resounding yes! And we'll show you... 

Or rather, Wardee's daughter and grandson will show you how! That's him in the video above and he will be "teaching" you in all the class videos as well. Along with his mom, Haniya, of course!

You see, until around the time of their first birthday, babies have incredibly open palates. They want to explore, play, and experience with all of their senses. So, now is the time to give baby all of those foods you know are nourishing — like bone broth and liver. Your baby will, at the very least, give them a taste or two. Most likely, he or she will develop a liking for them and that will make him or her stronger and healthier!

We’re so excited to get in the kitchen with you again, this time with a bib and high chair!
