What is a traditional diet?
At Movementum we are passionate about food and it plays a central role in our daily lives. We loosely follow the traditional model of eating, based on Weston A. Price's work, Sally Fallon's book 'Nourishing Traditions' and the Hemsley sisters' book 'The Art of Eating Well'.
Our meals are based on natural ingredients, including quality meat, fish, dairy, seasonal veg, and we use traditional techniques for making cultured and fermented food. For a brief, general overview of the differences between the traditional and modern diets please see the list at the bottom of the page.
Modern diets are radically different from what our forebears would recognise - food eaten out of season, sprayed with a myriad of chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers and then refined and processed.
