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!

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.

Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...

Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.

Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx
