Our ancestors, worldwide, hold the key to healthy eating. It’s called “nutrient density.” Basically, they knew how to get the most out of each bite because they learned it from their parents, who learned it from their parents, and so on. Traditional indigenous diets worldwide were much more nutrient-dense than ours today: they were high in a variety of nutrients and replete with the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K.
In this conversation, Sally Fallon Morell, the president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, goes into detail about why this is and how we can eat a more nutrient-dense diet today. She explains the essential role of vitamins A, D, and K in fertility, boosting mood, improving dental health and more. She describes what foods contain them in just the right proportions, including butter and raw cheeses. She reminds us of the benefits of organ meats. And she gives practical suggestions for simple ways to include foods in the diet that will give all of us the most bang for our buck, health-wise.
