IIRC, the original WAP protocol was cod liver oil (can't remember if it was fermented or not) and butter oil, but the logic of it was/is to get the triple-threat combination of fat soluble vitamins: A, D and K2. WAP chose FCLO/BO as his preferred means of ensuring sufficient quantities of each, however none of the myriad tribes he had previously studied around the world had used this combination, though all had good teeth because they got the three vitamins.
So would it work just as well to use, for example...
K2: natto (be it made w/soybeans or another type of bean)
... or some other combination that still ensures all three? Anyone tried? Food and sunshine seems easier than supplements, cheaper too, and more likely to be followed over time.

Liver and pastured food products + sunshine are a much better source of your fat soluble vitamins.
Eating higher fat foods works to lower food expenses through satiation. (I didn't eat for 12 hours yesterday because I ate enough fat (1/4 c pastured butter + meat for breakfast.) When you consider how much nutrition you get from raw veggies, vs meats, the costs go up as you MUST eat a high volume of veggies to get an equivalent amount of nutrition that meat provides.

It seems that a lot of people can't stomach natto, so it's probably best to try it before concluding that you can! I've noticed that most people who research or write books on K2 appear to be supplementing in addition to getting it in their diet. In some cases, it may be cheaper to supplement as well.
