All humans are omnivores capable of digesting a wide variety of foods.
There are ONLY 3 types of food: proteins, fats & carbohydrates.
All three should be eaten daily!
A healthy body requires a diverse diet of REAL food.
Real food is all whole food grown or that grazed or swam and is a single, unprocessed ingredient.
Food eaten closest to its original state, sourced fresh, has the vital nutrients and minerals essential for survival.
Real food perishes and should require minimal packaging, if any.
There is no one best diet for all humans. Optimal diets are highly individual.
Good nutrition is about biology and ecology more than ideology (you are what you eat, not what you think!)
Eating in balance with what your body need to maintain vitality. Better quality. Less quantity.
The human body thrives when it eats and eliminates food, routinely.
Everyone is different; what's well digested by one person, might not be so for another.
Individual nutrition is based on a combination of genetics, the health of the gut biome along with lifestyle factors.
A healthy gut is home to a robust and biodiverse organisms that are vital for active, healthy digestion.
Many illnesses can be ameliorated with a good, nutritious diet based on real foods.
We need fewer calories as we age.
Eat ONLY healthy fats and remove all refined carbs and highly processed (fake) oils from the home kitchen.
A healthy body eats plant-based foods every day.
Most real food requires some transformation - preparation or heat - to be able to consume it.
Know your local food sources. Spend wisely on good ingredients. Cook high quality food at home as much as possible.
Less is more.
