How to Eat
Ran Prieur, on eating things our bodies have adapted to:
What Your Ancestors Ate is Good for You. […] Your ancestors did not eat plastic, or donuts, or many of the "foods" that fill industrial-age supermarkets.
There are several schools of ancestral eating. I lean toward the Weston Price diet, which includes foods from our pastoral and agrarian ancestors: milk and meat from animals raised in pastures, and whole grains that have been either sprouted or fermented. […]
The Paleolithic diet goes farther back, excluding grains, legumes, and dairy, and permitting fruit, vegetables, roots, non-grain seeds, and lean meat. Raw foodists go farther yet, excluding a million years of ancestral adaptation to cooking. I like raw foods but wouldn't eat that way all the time. A raw food diet is a mentally easy way to cut out processed foods and get a short term improvement in health, but people who follow it strictly for years get malnourished.
