geek/ocd question alert:
provided that the suggested foods would not cause g.i. distress in the individual, what would be the foods to provide the necessary micro-nutrients (vitamins & minerals)? cost is not an issue, but i want to find the minimum effective dose/type for the maximum benefit.
here are my ideas: grass fed ruminant liver (easy to get & cheap) sustainable shellfish that you are not allergic to seaweed? bone broth or gelatin?
some kind of clean sugar that benefits you (dextrose, brown rice syrup, safe starches, honey, fruit, d-ribose) protein (high in bcaas) fat (coconut oil, grass fed ghee, grass fed ruminant fat)

Dsohei, your list looks good to me. I would add egg yolks, some herbs, sea salt, brains.
My staples are beef, including liver and brains, bone broths, and, of course, beef fat; pastured butter, cream, cheese, wild salmon, eggs, and herbs.
I sometimes eat pumpkin or parsnips. I use seaweed, occasionally, from Larch Hanson in Maine.
In the summer, I eat cucumbers. I will occasionally eat a few berries or a section or two of grapefruit, but I don't know that they provide crucial nutrients. I eat them for variety.
I filter city water through a Pur brand, carbon gravity filter, and then through a Berkefeld water purifier with the extra filters for removing fluoride.
