After spending twenty years in public education as a teacher and administrator, Christina Schindler has embarked on a business venture with her family as the CEO of the Modern Stone Age Kitchen, a foodery in Chestertown, Maryland, that optimizes nutrition in modern foods through ancestral techniques to create healthy food for the community. Christina also serves as president of the Eastern Shore Food Lab, a non-profit that is focused on creating a nourishing, ethical and sustainable food system through education, outreach and research. Most importantly, Christina is a mother of three busy teenagers and Dr. Bill Schindler's high-tech other half.
MODERN STONE AGE HOUSEHOLD: MAKING AN ANCESTRAL DIET WORK IN TODAY'S WORLD
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21
Talking about how to nourish your family is one thing—actually doing it is something completely different! The Schindler family of five has done it all: GAPS, carnivore, keto, intermittent fasting. They have traveled the world together to live, cook and share food with indigenous and traditional groups. They have learned to make all of their food entirely from scratch to nourish their family and even opened up a restaurant to nourish the community based on what they have learned. They hunt, they forage and they shop at the grocery store. They have made all the mistakes—argued about Halloween candy, put restrictions on food and even refused to eat birthday cake when on strict diets—and have learned from each and every one of them. Most importantly, they have done all of this while navigating the demands of modern life—two careers, kids’ activities (soccer, ballet, field hockey) and the immense pressure society puts on all of us.
Bill and Christina Schindler look forward to sharing their story and what they have learned along the way to inspire and empower others to strike the happy balance we all need to achieve genuine nourishment.
