I heard something on a Robb Wolf podcast (I think) or maybe I read it in Lights Out, but it got me thinking. There are always a lot of questions about fruit/vegetable consumption. What kinds to eat, how much to eat, etc.
Our ancestral diet would have allowed us to only eat fruits/vegetables that were available where we lived and we could only get them in the season that they grew naturally. It seems to me that if we would adopt this way of eating fruits/vegetables, it would basically eliminate the should I or shouldn't I questions.
For example, apples only grow naturally in a specific time of the year so our ancestors would have probably come across them, chowed down while they could and when they were gone for the season they wouldn't eat them anymore. Unless you live in the tropics it would automatically eliminate the sugary fruits like bananas.
I'm wondering if anyone only eats fruits/veggies that grow locally (at least the same climate zone) and only when they are in season? Thoughts?
