Primal Blueprint Law 1: Eat Plants and Animals
The first law of the Primal Blueprint, “Eat Plants and Animals,” refers to the idea that our ancestors, who lived as hunters and gatherers, relied on a diet of whole, unprocessed foods that included both plant-based and animal-based sources of nutrition.
This law suggests that a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds, combined with high-quality animal proteins such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy, can provide the necessary nutrients for optimal health. Processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats should be limited.
The idea behind this law is that our bodies are genetically adapted to the types of foods that were available to our ancestors and that consuming a diet based on these foods can lead to improved health and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
It’s important to note that the interpretation and application of this law may vary among individuals, and that it is important to consult a healthcare professional for personalized dietary recommendations.
