Health Problems

Ruining a Good Thing

One can eat some truly “traditional” foods and still not become healthy because at the same time that a person might eat a nutritious plate of steamed corn, beans and squash from their gardens, they then supplement those healthy foods with fatty meat, sugary drinks and desserts, and greasy sides such as French Fries or fatty, mayonnaise-laden macaroni or potato salad. Those same healthy servings of corn, squash, beans, potatoes, game meats and other New World foods are no longer nutritious if they are improperly prepared with grease, lard, butter, and heavy doses of salt.
