11 Dietary “Wise Traditions” Principle #2

Friday, July 21, 2023 6:29 PM

The Wise Tradition Diet is not a high-protein diet—rather, it is a high-fat diet.  Still, we need a certain amount of high-quality animal protein in our diets.
Get Your Proteins Right!
A lesson learned from traditional cultures is to always eat our meat with fat—traditional peoples knew that a diet of lean meat would make them sick.  Eating meat without the fat results in rapid depletion of vitamin A, because we need vitamin A to assimilate protein. In addition, it is important to put a special emphasis on organ meats, because these are far more nutritious than muscle meats. Organ meats are rich sources of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K2, which Dr. Price discovered are key to robust good health. Organ meats are also rich sources of minerals and vitamins B6 and B12.
Make an effort to obtain wild seafood and animal foods raised outdoors on pasture, without hormones, antibiotics or GMO feed.
• Organ meats - liver, pate, liverwurst, scrapple, etc.
• Red meat - always with the fat
• Poultry - always with the skin
• Pork – properly prepared by curing or marinating
• Milk products - preferably unpasteurized and always full fat
• Eggs, always with the yolks
• Seafood, including shellfish and fish eggs
• Lean meat
• Skinless chicken breasts
• Reduced fat milk
• Egg whites without the yolks
• Protein powders (soy, whey, hemp, pea, etc.)
