The basis for the ancestral health movement is nutrient rich foods. Budgetary restrictions and scarcity of nutrient dense foods can make ancestral diets seem unattainable. The big box stores are not providing us with nutrient dense foods, neither are the organic stores. Our ancestors enjoyed a lifestyle that gave them far more nutrition for each meal than our own industrial food system. Home gardens are the best place for you to control the nutrient density of your produce and cut costs. In our busy lives most feel that they cannot grow their own food. The myth is it gardening is too hard, don't know how or not enough time. This paradigm is about the change. There are now gardening systems that are organic that can grow enough produce for 3 people in 15 minutes a day. In these high performance gardening systems it is totally possible to grow all the produce you need. The key to the highest nutrient dense food is just an education away.
