Traditional Eating – What We Stopped Doing
Do you know what traditional eating is?
Our ancestors did it for hundreds and thousands of generations. It’s prized in all cultures. What is traditional eating?
Here’s an example of traditional eating:
When Eskimos (Inuit) catch game such as seal, caribou, bear, etc. they prize the liver and internal organs and give the lean muscle meat to their dogs.
This diet is found all over the world. Even today many cultures still prize the health qualities of organ meats:
- chopped liver
- sweetbreads (thymus or pancreas)
- Scottish haggis (heart, liver, lung pudding)
- sausage from many cultures
- British bangers
- Irish shepherds’ pie
There are many similar dishes all over the world.
It seems to be the opposite with modern society. And yet lean meats were always considered less important and less nutritious than the fatty organ meats. It’s true, organ meats have far more nutrients. Serve some this holiday season!
