I posted this list on PaleoHacks a couple of years ago, and I’m reposting because I wanted to have a record of it here. It’s from a radio interview Chris Masterjohn did back in November 2011 with Cary Nosler, where Chris pointed out that Weston A Price found that healthy groups generally consumed one or more of the following [40:00]:
- raw dairy
- pastured eggs & organ meats
- insects/whole small animals
I’m thinking it might be an interesting experiment to worry less about macronutrients (save for getting sufficient protein) or restricting whole food groups or solely eating intuitively and concentrate more on eating these foods regularly. Perhaps this could be a useful gateway to healthier behaviors.
As an aside, I hadn’t remembered Chris’ discussion on agriculture and the wisdom required to do it correctly. If you buy the paleo line that things went all downhill after the advent of agriculture, I encourage you to listen starting around 30 minutes or so. Good stuff!
