Suffering Succotash

I like the word “succotash.” Not because I like to eat it, or even because the cartoon cat Sylvester still cracks me up every time he lisps, “Thufferin’ thuccotash!”

I like it because not only is it a great-sounding word, it’s also a great example of how so-called “nutritionists” have rewritten history. And how backward modern “diet” advice is.

Let me explain…

Today, we’re told that succotash is a recipe native North Americans made with corn and lima beans. Modern nutrition holds up dishes like this as examples of how “healthy” corn and other grains are because they were used by our native ancestors in their agriculture and diets.

Well, lima beans aren’t native to America, so native North Americans couldn’t have used them in succotash.

But it is true that native North Americans were very healthy. The skeletons of these hunter-gatherers suggest they had very good structural health, including strong bones, teeth and joints. They had large, broad jaws and strong, powerful bodies so they could easily hunt, catch and eat food.1

What’s not true is that native North Americans were healthy because of their agricultural skills. They were not farmers. They were hunters. And they based their meals around protein. True, they ate corn, but grains were secondary to meat.

The real story of authentic succotash is that it’s based on meat and haricot beans – you might know them better as navy beans, or fagioli.

The Wampanoag Indians near Plymouth, Mass., taught European settlers how to make succotash using dried meat, fresh game birds and native tubers. It was really a fall “stew.” Plus, they might add pumpkins, pecans and squash. This combination is a far cry nutritionally from corn and lima beans.

Did you know that the pecan is the only tree nut native to America? But more than that, pecans are a natural, high-quality source of protein, with few carbohydrates at all. And as you know, pumpkin seeds also are a good source of protein.

In other words, native North Americans ate protein, and it kept them healthy. Even succotash, which we’re told is grain-based, was really made with protein, not just corn.

And through the years, native North American people (through no choice of their own) had to replace quality protein from hunting for quantity grain from farming. Later, their skeletons show their overall health and vitality were not as ideal as they were when they were true hunters and gatherers…

And now, you’re going through the same changes.

For years, the national food pyramid has recommended lots of grains, and only a little meat. In fact, modern nutrition will tell you that red meat is so dangerous they’ve “fortified” grains with vitamins and protein so you won’t have to eat meat.

On the other hand, the protein sources hunter-gatherer North Americans ate was wild-caught, and would have fed on native grasses and other natural sources. And that made their meat pure and full of the protein, vitamins and nutrients you need to thrive.

But because we’re not living in the woods hunting our game anymore, it’s difficult to get organic meat from grass-fed sources. So here’s what to do:

Just add a couple scoops of protein powder to your favorite juice or even water.

It really is that simple.

But there is one catch. Most of the protein that you find out there comes from grain-fed cows. They live their lives standing in cement sheds, never seeing the light of day. And their diet is so unnatural it makes cattle sick and diseased.

Imagine gulping down a concentrated cocktail of antibiotics, hormones and pesticides?

I have a better solution: organic, grass-fed whey protein powder.

I’ve secured a grass-fed whey protein that comes exclusively from free-roaming, pasture-fed cows. They enjoy a grass-only diet without the use of hormones, pesticides and antibiotics. The way nature intended.

The whey protein from grass-fed cows is fresh and potent. You’ll feel the difference.

Equally impressive is what you won’t find:

• NO high-fructose corn syrup…
• NO trans fats…
• NO gluten…
• NO soy protein…
• NO aspartame or artificial sweeteners…

Just the cleanest, most powerful source of whey protein available. In addition, you’ll guarantee your body has the building blocks it needs for optimum health.

And did you know that over-consuming protein may be one of the most reliable ways of triggering high-speed fat loss? Why, because protein helps you feel satiated so you do not eat as much. Whenever I want to drop a few pounds, I use this grass-fed whey protein. It gives me a distinct energy boost, and I notice a slimming effect around my belly because I do not eat as much.

I suggest you pick up a bottle right now…

To Your Good Health,
