Harold Kalve‘s Basic Food: A Theory of Nutrition is a thought-provoking short work designed to get the individual to look within themselves at what nature really had in mind for them. By diving deep into the evolutionary and geographic origins of our dietary needs, Kalve’s work open eyes and starts conversations in the way a true step forward should. The following is what the author had to say when he sat down to share his thoughts and reflections on his latest work.
“My idea was to go back to basics in terms of diet and nutrition. It seemed that everywhere I looked people were chasing after some sort of mythical ‘perfect diet,’ but no one was willing to step back and see the bigger picture. There are so many brands and trends out there that it can be hard to know who to turn to for the right advice. I chose to talk with the natural world and think about what it really had to offer.”
An ingenious approach to take, but what made him go in that direction, and why now?
“I wanted to leave something to the world that I could be proud of, and with everything that’s going on right now I thought that the time had finally come for me to get my ideas down on paper. Okay, so that’s reason one, but there’s also a few more I want to share with you. The truth is that I’ve always been wary of the processed and chemically formulated foods that so much of the world seems to be welcoming with open arms. Life never used to be like that, which is why I want to sit down and think about if this is really what the natural world had in mind for us. We’ve managed to survive for hundreds of thousands of years without any of this, and yet within the last 50-100 years we’ve seen obesity and other health conditions explode. I knew that something had to be done to tip the scales back in the other direction, so I picked up my pen and got to work.”
Truly inspiring, so where is this work going to take him in the next 12 months?
“If 2020 taught us anything it’s that no one can honestly say they know what’s around the corner. I want to be able to look back on a life well-lived, and to know deep down that I did my best to find my voice and make a difference to the world. Having these types of conversations with people like you is a big part of that, and if these words can change the mind or open the eyes of just one person, I will know that it was all time well spent.”
