During April, I'll be posting on the A-Z Blogging Challenge.
My theme is the Hunzas.
Today is D....... for diet.
Hunza people can't shop at food markets because of their isolation. Their diet consists of what grows in the sheltered valley. One of the reasons they were able to survive in seclusion is because their valley was able to provide all the essentials for a balanced diet
The picture above is an apricot tree in full bloom.
A typical meal may consist of chapatas of wheat, millet or corn
Green leafy salad in summer & root vegetables in the winter.
Goat milk or buttermilk.
Goat butter made into gee and goat cheese.
Wine made from fruit.... apricots, cherries.
Their cooking oil comes from almonds and apricots. .
Very little meat is available. This well balanced diet accounts for the Hunzas cheerful attitude, exceptional health and abundant stamina.
