Traditional Foods & the Importance of a Traditional Diet

November 4, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Karli and Natalie from Anishnawbe Mushkiki will be teaching participants about a Traditional Diet.

There is more than one way to eat a traditional diet, because it is based on the lands and waters surrounding us. That said, there are common benefits to following the parts of a traditional Anishnawbe diet.

Following a traditional diet offers many benefits to our well being. Here are a few:

  • Social Connections: eating in a traditional way provided opportunity for people to share and come together to gather, hunt, prepare and eat food.
  • Cultural Strength: sharing, teaching and learning together kept the ties to Anishnawbe culture strong.
  • Spiritual Wellness: participating in food ceremonies, hunting and gathering in a respectful way and the connection to the Earth and Creator is essential to maintain spiritual connectedness.
  • Nutrition: traditional foods tend to be higher in vitamins and minerals, they are also lower in salt, fat and sugar. In general, a traditional diet is higher in protein, low in carbohydrate and contains a moderate amount of fat.
