11 Timeless Principles of the Wise Traditions Diet

For nutrient dense foods that nourish the body and help to heal our relationship with food, the Wise Traditions diet, based on the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation, recommends incorporating a variety of whole, unprocessed foods.

This includes grass-fed meats, organ meats, wild-caught fish, pastured eggs, raw dairy, bone broth, fermented foods, and healthy fats such as coconut oil, olive oil, and tallow.

The diet emphasies the importance of traditional preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting, and fermenting to improve the digestibility and nutrient availability of foods. It also advocates against processed foods, refined sugars, industrial seed oils, and grains that have not been properly prepared.

The Wise Traditions diet is based on the philosophy of respect for food, which means honouring the natural cycles and diversity of nature, and recognising the importance of locally sourced, sustainably raised foods.
