I started watching this show on Netflix because I recently found out I have a gluten intolerance. I really want to feel well again so thought maybe this show could help. Now I am half way scared of food, but the show was making a bit of sense. I encourage everyone to watch it.
The main line that stuck out to me was something along the lines of, "We no longer eat food. We consume food-like products." Things like sugar is alright in its natural state like sugarcane, but when refined becomes bad for you. Cocaine is refined from the cocoa plant. Wheat is now completely evil imo. lol And in everything. It's in my kids' Flintstones vitamins!
But I have started looking for recipes to really get the nutrition I need. They talk about eating high calorie foods and still feeling hungry because they aren't high nutrition. So today for lunch I had a couple of tomatoes, seasoned with garlic, and baked for 10 minutes with some provolone. So good, and my hunger is gone. Had protein and dairy from the cheese, always good for you garlic, and a fruit so I feel proud of myself.
What kind of recipes do you know that work with a more natural hunter/gatherer/farmer diet?
