From the Weston A. Price Foundation

Are you confused about what to eat? Do you find it difficult to navigate the conflicting claims for different diet plans? Unfortunately, these dietary plans share little with the way healthy humans have eaten for thousands of years. 

  1. Avoid all refined and denatured foods.
  2. Include animal foods.
  3. Emphasize nutrient–dense foods: organ meats, animal fats, eggs, raw dairy, shellfish, fish liver oils and fish eggs.
  4. Eat some animal food raw; cook most plant foods.
  5. Enjoy lacto-fermented condiments and beverages.
  6. Prepare seeds, grains, and nuts properly to minimize anti-nutrients and enhance digestibility.
  7. Enjoy saturated fats; avoid industrial seed oils.
  8. Consume animal foods from land and sea to balance omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
  9. Use unrefined salt liberally.
  10. Include gelatinous bone broth in soups, stews, gravy and sauces.
  11. Emphasize nutrient-dense foods before and during pregnancy, and for growing babies.
