what is the nomadic Somali diet

I've been trying to change my diet to replicate what our ancestors ate which makes intuitive sense. So far I've only come up with camel meat and other livestock , camel milk and the odd grains like sorghum etc. It seems similar to the carnivore diet with some regional tweaking but I think there has to be more to it. Any camel produce is ridiculously expensive though so an alternative is needed.

Hilib and walking for a long time. Our ancestors had longer lifespans than the queens and kings of europe. Even today, its not odd to find 100 year old somali men

I think it's Caano geel/lo'o, hilib/livestocks's meat, soor/ kinda like maize flour..

Breakfast; Canjeero/laxoox with otkac/muqmad with any shaah

Lunch; This is kinda modern somali food, so it's either baasto with sauce or bariis with suugo or any other

Casaryo/Asr; shaah cadeys, could be milk direct from animals or the ones in the shop... We prefer caano xooleyd as geeljires

Supper; this depends on different somali region.. Let's say the Koonfur; they eat cambuulo as supper

Waqooyi, it depends some eat bariis just like the afternoon while some snacks and juices.. but then everyone isn't eating the same

NfD; supper is like Ugali/soor or bariis iyo cambuulo just like the koonfur or baasto and bariis.

Let's me something about our forefathers; I heard times like casr/evening, they use to do gabeey/amaan= complimenting our somali ethnicity, while drinking their shaah... I don't wanna say something about this generation..:kanyehmm:

As for exercise, Geeljire used to run in their spare time.. They also used to do something called lagdi,=it's kinda wrestling, but not punching each other or hurting

Herding livestocks for long hours till habeen/night is another work= they used to drink Camel milk, which gave em the energy

Watering livestocks singlehandedly at night or evening/Asr

Jumping challenges
Climbing trees
Training with arrows..

A geeljire never feared of attacks from deadly wild animal roaming around baadiyo.. I think it depends tho..

For me, I have encountered many adeers of mine being attacked by lions& hyenas, but they saved themselves from the wild animals. I saw the evidence too, (Scars of biting and so on)

Again this generation, I don't wanna say something about them:kanyehmm:
