15 nutrient-dense foods my family eats on a weekly basis


My idea of food and what constitutes as “nutrient-dense” food has changed drastically over the last few years. I was a vegetarian for about 8 years of my life and looking back now, I know I wasn’t thriving and there were signs that my body was certainly depleted in essential minerals and vitamins. ⁣

⁣But thank goodness I was on that journey because that lead me to learn more about what our body needs to truly thrive and function the way it was designed to. My symptoms and simply not feeling my best (even though I had a “healthy” diet and lifestyle) told me that something was “off” in my body and I was determined to figure out what that was. ⁣

⁣The beginning of 2020, I came across the pro-metabolic and ancestral eating lifestyle and learned about Weston A. Price, Dr. Ray Peat, and Morley Robbins and dug into their incredible work and years of research. It all started to make sense and click. ⁣

⁣It’s taken lots of “unlearning” and letting go of mainstream health ideas, and embracing what true nourishment, healing, and thriving look like.⁣ It’s amazing to watch Aidan enjoying many of these foods listed at such a young age!

  1. Eggs
  2. Beef liver
  3. Raw milk
  4. Sourdough bread and other goods
  5. Grass-fed butter and ghee
  6. Ground beef 
  7. Steak
  8. Honey
  9. Greek yogurt
  10. Cottage cheese
  11. Bee pollen
  12. Ripe fruit
  13. Sweet potatoes, carrots, and seasonal roots
  14. Bone broth
  15. Cacao powder

Remember, nourishing your body should be an enjoyable experience!
