Vegan Protein

One of the things most people seem to think is that vegans don't get enough protein, but what lots of folks don't realise is eating vegetables can provide even more protein than meat...



Dr Michael Klaper explains more...

Hope you all have a great weekend!

YAY for vegans!!!!
I believe the world will end up vegan one day...not through the majority of choice but because the planet will no longer be able to sustain itself any other way.

We think so too & what a wonderful thing that will be!

Mike used to get so many comments from the guys at work about being vegan. However, through the years they no longer say anything. I'm thinking it's because he's staying in such great shape while they age not so gracefully.... Must be our "lack" of protein! ha!

Folks have so much to learn...

J's colleagues have noticed that he has changed his diet - he has his drinks black , and he turned down a freshly baked sausage roll the other day, and chocolate. He was asked if he is ' on some sort of health kick'. It definitely feels like the best one we've ever been on, and at 50 he is looking more fabulous every day - or is that just because I love him so much? Chickpea curry for tea today - my absolute favourite thing at the moment, and packed with protein as it has cauliflower in it too!

Thanks for posting dr Klaper I haven't come across him before. Off to read more of his work.

Scarlet - That's great to hear. Although my thyroid is playing up, we are being told quite frequently that we look well!

Leanne - Dr Klapper seems to make so much sense & he has a beard, which gets a thumbs up from me!

and then there are all those wonderful grains such as millet, quinoa etc.

Hi Susan, whole grains are great - we eat both of those. Quinoa & amaranth are both high in protein & of course there are pulses, seeds & nuts... We have hemp powder in our porridge every morning.

I think I will laminate that first table and carry it around with me, so when I get the inevitable question, I can whip it out with a flourish and silence the doubters!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
