Please review the pregnancy and whole grains section before you take this as an endorsement to consume oats.

Their nutrition is provided by their oat products and fish, and by a very limited amount of vegetable foods. Lobsters and flat fish are a very important part of their foods. Fruits are practically unknown. Yet the physiques of these people are remarkably fine.

For nutrition, the children of this community were dependent very largely on oatmeal porridge, oatcake and sea foods.

The fishing about the Outer Hebrides is especially favorable, and small sea foods, including lobsters, crabs, oysters and clams, are abundant. An important and highly relished article of diet has been baked cod's head stuffed with chopped cod's liver and oatmeal.

Keep in mind that to reproduce this diet, one would need to obtain fresh oats. Oats in stores, even health food stores, are heat treated and thus rancid and lacking important vitamins. The oats eaten by the people of the Outer Hebrides were also likely soured or fermented over a long period to enhance digestibility.

 The healthy diet of the remote Loetschental Valley villagers is probably the easiest to replicate today in modern America. But it takes great precision to do so. The 100% rye bread eaten by the Swiss valley inhabitants was sourdough and aged for 2-4 weeks before baking. The milk was of the highest quality imaginable. It is difficult today to obtain such high vitamin milk, although many states have some excellent grass-fed dairy farmers and locating such high quality milk, butter and cheese is possible. For a premium price, you can get Alpine summer cheese made in chateaux. One such cheese is called Beaufort d'Alpage. For several months my family and I would feast on Beaufort, which is a full-fat French cheese. Three ounces contains one gram of calcium. The cheese is so rich and creamy it tastes almost like chocolate. We are now on a break from our cheese habit, but when we were eating it regularly we got a bulk price of $18 per pound. That might seem expensive, but is equivalent to what you would pay for a good piece of fish or a high quality steak. Find your local gourmet cheese shop and if it is a good one you will be able to sample summer-made raw milk cheeses from Europe; there are many varieties. Cheese that is grassfed during the spring or summer time usually has a very pungent taste.

The food of the [Indians] was found to consist almost entirely of wild game but this does not mean what we moderns would understand by a meat diet. It seems to be an inherent part of their conception of life that in order for man, woman or child to have a perfect body he must eat some of every part of the moose. (Emphasis added.)

This did not of course, include indigestible structures, such as hide, hair, hoofs, horns or bones, but did require that the marrow be taken from bones that even the walls of the intestine or stomach after having been thoroughly cleaned should be utilized for foods as well as the tissues of every organ and gland of the body of the animal. I was told by different Indians that even when plenty of moose were available the livers of small fur animals were utilized for food.

This physical activity on the part of all required a daily intake of foods which consisted of various parts of the animal prepared in different ways generally cooked either on spits before the open fire or in kettles as stews. The average amount eaten as I would judge from the sample servings would be from 5 to 7 pounds per day per individual adult.

The Indian knows where these special life-giving substances are to be found and he like the wild carnivorous animal is wise in food selection. He accordingly selects the liver, brain, kidneys, and glands. Part of every day’s food for the Indians includes eating some of these special tissues. The parents provide these for the children and teach them their special values. (Emphasis added.)

A ground nut that was gathered by the Tundra mice and stored in caches was used by the Eskimos as a vegetable. Stems of certain water grasses, water plants and bulbs were occasionally used. The bulk of their diet, however, was fish and large animal life of the sea from which they selected certain organs and tissues with great care and wisdom. These included the inner layer of skin of one of the whale species, which has recently been shown to be very rich in vitamin C.

Like the Indians of the interior who live on the animal life of the land the Eskimos eat not only the muscle part of fish and other forms of aquatic life but the livers and hearts and in many cases the edible parts of the head; also the milt and roe when these are present as is the case when the fish are running toward their spawning grounds which is the time the principal harvesting is done.

[Eskimos] also use at certain times of the year stems or roots of certain plants, particularly the growing parts.

The severity of their weather requires that they provide their bodies with large quantities of fuel for production of heat… This would be provided largely by the stored smoked dried red salmon. This salmon is dipped in seal oil as it is eaten… Small quantities of parts of several plants are used when available… The flesh of walrus, seal, caribou, moose, sea cow, and occasionally whale should be a regular part of the menu according to season.
