Description

The answer to the question, “What is a healthy diet?” we can look to the work of Weston A. Price, who studied the diets of healthy traditional peoples during the 1930s and 1940s. He found fourteen groups with excellent dental health (no cavities, no dental deformities) and excellent overall health. Their diets contained no refined or processed foods and were extremely nutrient dense, containing at least four times the minerals and ten times the fat-soluble vitamins as the American diet of his day. Sources of these fat-soluble vitamins include certain seafoods (fish eggs, fish livers, fish liver oils, fish heads) and the fats and organ meats of land animals (including butter, egg yolks, liver, poultry fat). These foods were considered especially important before conception, during pregnancy and lactation and for growth of the child. Other principles of healthy traditional diets include inclusion of raw animal food, use of lacto-fermented foods, use of bone broths, proper preparation of grains to minimize anti-nutrients and inclusion of salt. Lastly, nonindustrialized people practiced the spacing of children to allow the mother to recover her nutritional stores between pregnancies.
