Traditional Nutritional – Real Food Bloggers

I wanted to give a shout to a few awesome traditional foods blogs I’ve come across lately which have rekindled my interest in traditional diets.

These women take the notion of “whole foods” quite seriously. If Great-Great-Grandma wouldn’t recognize it, they won’t eat it. Not only do they provide wonderful information about traditional foods, they back it up with research, resources and ohmygosh the RECIPES!

  • Food Renegade – A wife, mom and real foods advocate. (Read it if for no other reason that it has the word “renegade” in the title, adding instant cool factor.)
  • Kelly the Kitchen Kop – Fantastic for its long, well researched articles on traditional nourishing diets. If you want to know WHY certain fats are so healthy, WHY raw milk/grass fed etc., start here.
  • CHEESE SLAVE – “For the love of bacon, butter, raw milk – and all those other things we’re not supposed to eat.” Well put!
  • The Nourishing Gourmet – I love her for the pictures, and for this. You’ll know why!

Common themes you’ll find:

  • It’s good to eat meat. Make it grassfed.
  • Whole grains are ok – if they’re soaked/sprouted.
  • Butter is a health food!
  • Ditto for coconut oil.
  • Cholesterol is your friend.
  • Get (government policies) out of my kitchen.
  • If it comes out of a box, skip it.
  • Food should taste good and be a source of pleasure.
  • Raw is good, and fermented is uber cool.
  • Many references to Nourishing Traditions and Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
