I am always on about diet, I know. But diet is a huge part of human health. Today, instead of discussing what I eat. I talk about some traditional methods of preparing the foods that I eat. As well as why I have come to prepare these foods the way I do.
Although there are many reasons that modern convenience has become detrimental. The problems created by eating convenience foods is likely to have produced the biggest challenge. A lot of the population on the planet now has access to food at any given time. Which is an incredibly new experience in terms of the history of our species. This fact could potentially be a good thing. Except that most of the foods we now have access to are highly processed.
Phrases such as “overfed and undernourished” readily come to mind when I think about this topic. You see, for millennia humans have prepared the foods that they eat in traditional ways. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few religions from around the world that tackle the topic of food. And I’m not just what a person ought to eat. There are at times strict rules about the traditional methods for preparation. An example of this can be found in Judaism with the insistence on Kosher foods.
A good source for information on traditional human diets is the Weston A. Price Foundation. This website has a ton of information related to traditional preparation techniques. Including recipes that you can make at home.
