About Us

Hi there! PD is passionate about local, real food and we wanted to share with you our journey to raising healthy kids through nutrition and a natural approach to immunity. Our diet mostly follows Weston A Price Foundation guidelines, but we are also strongly influenced by Paleo and Perfect Health Diets.

We wanted to call this site “petrie-dish” as a reference to the pteranodon in Land Before Time to reflect an evolutionary, paleo perspective to nutrition on a plate – hopefully your next dinner dish! So we thought it was perfect. We also enjoyed the play on words with respect to its scientific connotation so please join us with our experiments of culture growth, fermentation, and critical analysis of mainstream scientific ideologies.
