I'm hungry. It’s about noon and I’m currently dieting down. One of the most difficult things about dieting is finding food you want to eat. I’ve seen friends of mine “gung ho” for a few days, eating nothing but ice chips and bumble bee tuna, but then one day they’re walking into town and get the heavenly scent of brick oven pizza. Score: Pizza-1, Diet 0. It doesn’t have to be like that. If you’re into culture-based diets, no flourishing tribe ever separated their egg yolks and whites, or worried about gluten. Today is a different story; we’ve become so diet-obsessed that we’ve forgotten how to eat. Counting carbs, weighing chicken, and immortalizing burgers. What has become of our eating habits? In 1,000 years, will people look back to the way we ate and create a food plan based on protein bars and happy meals? In most cases, cultures eat what’s available to them. If you’re a fan of great-tasting food, try this recipe out. Does the salmon need to be grass fed, free roaming, and organic?...yes that’s what the cavemen would want you to eat.
