I’m over half way through listening to an interesting book, “Deep Nutrition” by Catherine Shanahan, M.D. and wanted to share the four pillars of nutritional wellbeing that Shanahan recommends.
- Keep meat on the bone – by cooking meat on the bone it releases glucosamine & collagen fibers to help with joint mobility
- Eat organ meats – these lesser eaten parts of the animals are packed with vitamins and minerals not found in the muscle tissue
- Eat fermented/sprouted foods – fermenting & sprouting food unlocks and breaks down some starches and other particles that aren’t easily digested by the body. The yeast that ferments the food is also beneficial to consume
- Opt for raw & fresh ingredients – the less most food items are cooked, the less denaturing happens – simply due to less heat
