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.
Love Leanne
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!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.

Bye for now. …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
