The last several weeks have covered the 10 Principles of Good Nutrition. These principles are based on modern science and the study of healthy traditional peoples eating local foods.

Here is a review:

Do not eat refined or processed foods

Eat foods that have a high nutrient content

Animal foods are a critical part of your diet

Eat animal fats and avoid vegetable oils

Eat some of your animal foods raw

Carefully prepare your seed foods – nuts, seeds, grains and legumes

Eat foods that naturally contain enzymes

Use unrefined salt which is high in minerals

Include bone broth and collagen rich foods in your diet

Eat plant and animal foods raised on healthy soils

Why are these principles important? Vibrant health, which is your birthright, cannot be maintained if you are starving or being poisoned, or both. Dietary poisoning comes from processed foods and the many toxic ingredients they contain. This includes artificial nutrient fortification, preservatives, flavorings, dyes, etc. Vegetable oils are toxic to our physiology. Foods that are not raised as nature intended can be harmful to your health. This includes plants grown on nutrient poor soils, artificial fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. Poisoning also comes from animal foods that have been raised in unhealthy confinement and given antibiotics, hormones, and other chemicals. Starvation can be from not enough food, but also from a lack of the nutrients that your body needs to function properly.

Eat meat, organ meats, bone broth, raw whole milk, eggs, raw sauerkraut, butter and unrefined salt. Carefully prepare your seed foods (including all grains and beans) so that they are more digestible and contain fewer toxins. And give thanks every time you eat for the plants and animals that gave their life so that you may live.
