The farmers I know eat like absolute crap. And many, if not most of the farmers in my family are obese and have serious health issues.
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
I have a whole shelf just for my varieties of hot sauce. Also I dedicate a portion of my garden each year for hot peppers. Usually dehydrate and produce my own red pepper flakes from that garden as well.
Oh, and I do my own home ferments for the sour.... so you've obviously got me figured out.

So what do we have? Hooved mammals, small mammals with feet (like rabbit), fish, bi-valves (oysters), arthropodae malacostracan class (lobsters, crabs, shrimp), arthropodae insect class (beetles, grasshoppers, cockroaches, larvae), amphibians (frogs), birds, dairy, eggs, fruits, cruciferous vegetables, leafy greens, roots, tubers, bulbs, corms, rhizomes, grains, pseudo grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, nectars (honey and syrup).
So how varied is your diet now that you see your choices?
Primitive farmboys aren't eating the biscuits and cornbread you're thinking of. You're imagining excessive consumtion of dwarf wheat, added sugar, maybe even vegetable oil in the ingredients. Traditionally, we're talking about sprouting and fermenting the grains. We're talking about less modern grains and legumes because the most recent ones (GMO wheat, dwarf wheat, GMO corn, GMO soy) cause the biggest problems.
LOL, this is a fun exercise. I guess I'd call mine the "I found it growing in the ground, or it ate things that grew in the ground, nobody added poison to it, OR it has a history of being consumed by healthy populations OR some science seemed to show benefits to consuming this, even if it is slightly processed AND it didn't give me diarrhea or almost make me go blind or constipate me" diet. But that's just not very catchy.
