Q. Where will I get my protein?
A. A commonly asked question. Almost everything contains protein, even an apple. But some of the world’s highest protein foods are actually of vegetable origin. Take Spirulina for example; boasting a massive 70% protein, it is also high in B vitamins and iron, another major concern among meat eaters. Nuts also have high protein content, generally equalling that of meat. Grains and legumes are also a great source. But forget about the % level of protein for a second and think about how much of that protein your body can use, this is called the “digestibility coefficient”. Spirulina for example has the highest protein content of all foods and also the highest useable portion, weighing in at a massive 95%. Soaked almonds and sunflower seeds also rank very high, much higher than meat.
So what happens to protein that is not digested? It toxifies the body, hence one of the reasons meat eaters are more susceptible to cancer and illness.
In Appendix A there is a great article called “Plant Based Nutrition Provides an Abundance of Nutrients for Vegans and Vegetarians” written by a personal friend of mine Eve Adam who is a naturopath.
Do any of the following vegetarians look like they are lacking protein, or anything else?
Below is a picture of Mike Adams taken from the website below, he is a complete vegan.
And here is Mike’s blood and body analysis:
Bone Mineral Density (BMD): 2.51
As you can see from the above results, Mike is probably one of the healthiest people on the planet.
