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. ~ Edward Thomas ~ 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 ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
