Traditional Foods

"Traditional" in the context of these projects means pre-contact foods. No beef, mutton, goat, chicken, pork, milk, butter, cream, wheat flour (no fry bread), rye, barley, okra, black-eyed peas, or any other "Old World" food that many of us have lovingly incorporated into our diets and tribal cultures. No processed foods (Doritoes, Lays Chips, etc), even if the base is corn or potatoes. No chocolate unless it is unsweetened cacao or sweetened with honey from the Melipona bee, fruit, stevia, camas or agave. Be adventurous and try unfamiliar foods! There are many foods to choose from. My American Indian Health and Diet Project site lists and defines many of them.

Late Spring Garden

A lot of my vegetables are growing very well. The resident rabbits have stayed out of the big garden and so far, no squash bugs.

The tomato plants have dozens of blossoms.

Won't be long

I planted grapes three years ago and now the vines have taken over the arch and eastern fence of the big garden. 

Raspberries grow along the fences
