The American diet has slowly evolved to using more processed food (including junk food) to the detriment of our young people explained Sally Fallon Morell, President of Weston A. Price Foundation, to Lon Febuary 25, 2019. Based on research of ancestral wisdom in how our ancesters really ate resulting in fewer diseases and mental fog that are common today, the Weston A. Price recommends less processed or refined food and more animal products, including more animal fat, and high-carbohydrate plant food among other traditional foods and preparations.
Morell discussed her latest book (June 2018) titled “NOURISHING DIETS;How PALEO, ANCESTRAL and TRADITIONAL PEOPLES Really ATE”, available at amazon.com and many other outlets in print and kindle versions.
As a history buff myself, I tnroughly enjoyed descriptions of how our ancient ancestors lived throughout the world, and especially their goals for the food they selected. The book then wraps up taking that ancient food wisdom and translating that into ways they can be duplicated in a 21st century kitchen. She started the book with an essay on tooth decay, explaining how frequently when traditional tribes switch from their traditional diets to modern diets, their tooth decay increased to match that of modern societies.
