Healing Foods Pyramid

Healing Foods Pyramid

I just started my first Nutrition and Health course and anytime I see a government food pyramid or government guidelines for nutrition, I tend to be skeptical of it.

The book presented the Healing Foods Pyramid, which “emphasizes foods with restorative benefits and/or essential nutrients in natural forms. The core of dietary intake is primarily plant-based foods, with small amounts of animal foods” (Grodner, Roth and Walkingshaw, “Nutritional Foundations and Clinical Applications”.)
