Designing a Nutrient Dense Diet


After learning that every indigenous group around the world has traditionally derived 30-80% of their calories from saturated fat, I found it impossible not to question my existing assumptions about health and the optimal human diet.

This workshop introduces you to my lifelong research on the topic of food. Specifically, what to eat and how to best prepare it for maximum nutrition.

The lessons are based on both historical evidence and my own experience transitioning from a vegetarian diet and illness to regaining my health.



  • Self-paced video lessons teaching a step-by-step process for designing a nutrient-dense diet
  • Informational charts and sheets in PDF
  • Additional video tutorials and other essential resources
  • Permanent access via the Kōanga Online website
  • Kōanga Student Facebook page for support and questions
  • Taught by Kay Baxter (Kōanga Founder)
