Native American food
Food in the beginning was only meant to keep us alive, make our body strong and ready to face another day; the menu was altered to suit the weather at the time, for example in winter fatty foods were consumed and in summer lighter ingredients.
Due to the excessive amounts of physical work our ancestors almost never faced obesity or any such weight problems; the men had to hunt for food and do by hand most house chores such as building and repairs and women did their part in housekeeping and children raising.
The Native American food is based on pure ingredients that are meant to nourish the body and mind; all the dishes have natural ingredients and are very well balanced in order to keep the metabolism working well. A good example is if a dish contains red meat, it will be accompanied by a great deal of vegetables in order to assure proper digestion of the same.
Another very famous thing that accompany all Native American food dishes is a tale about the way it was created; they are outright intricate and fascinating, one must simply first learn about the dish they are about to eat before they savor it.
Many of these traditional dishes are still made the same way they were prepared in the past in specialized restaurants; if you want to live one such experience all you have to do is track one down and get your family and friends together for an experience of a lifetime. If you are not a restaurant fan you can prepare these dishes yourself in the comfort of your home by getting the recipes on the specialized sites.
