The current paradigm in nutrition education not only teaches inaccurate information to students but also lacks the promotion of a healthy relationship with food. The reductionist approach highlighted by the vast majority of nutrition curricula mirrors the research methodology that has led to the misguided dietary recommendations promoted by the government and healthcare professionals alike. In order to move the wisdom of ancestral nutrition into the mainstream, we need to reteach the subject at a very fundamental level. Use of an evolutionary approach to nutrition education that puts food, rather than nutrients, first is the only way that we can begin to change the perspective on healthy food for healthcare professionals and the general public on a large scale. It is time to rise from the underground!
