It seems to me that we’re being told what to eat and more importantly what NOT to eat at every opportunity. I suspect that most of the current diet advice is more about selling books or supplements than sensible, factual or traditional food wisdom.
What I would like to do is
1. Allay any fears surrounding this food group
2. Back it with traditional wisdom and practices
3. Give you tools to ensure that your food does heal and not harm you
Welcome back to our series on Traditional Foods- the foods which our forefather enjoyed, back when modern diseases like obesity and diabetes were a rarity. (1) Having read part one and two in this series you’re now aware of the importance of good quality fats in your diet along with the powerful healing capacity of organically produced, fresh, heirloom vegetables and fruit. Today we will look at nuts, seeds, grains and legumes, a group of foods which are similarly nutrient-dense and at the same time the source of much confusion and discussion around the health blogosphere.
