Ancestral Diet

Could it be that the food(s) our ancestors ate have healing powers for our bodies?  Do our current frames “remember” the foods eaten by our ancestors through epigenetics or actual DNA “preferences”?  In the same way a person could be genetically predisposed to addiction, could a person be genetically disposed to eating and benefiting from certain foods?

Here is my example:  As a descendant of European immigrants, I truly believe that the food of my relatives:   oatmeal, porridge, “mush” puts me on the pathway to an ideal body weight.  When I start eating oatmeal for breakfast, I slowly shed pounds.

Oatmeal does have a nice impact on cardiovascular health and it does burn slowly in my body and keeps my blood sugar constant.

So tell me about you!  What have you determined?

One thought on “Ancestral Diet

  1. I was looking at the comments on my original post and someone …a couple of people….. brought up the idea that although they have Irish ancestry, they don’t really consider Irish potatoes as very healthy. So here is my observation: Potatoes originally came from South America….so would or could that be considered an authentic ancestral food ( for Irish people) since its origin was in a different location than Ireland?
