  • Complete proteins are important.

    (I did not see a post about this and I thought it was important)
    One thing that you will need to consider when you eat especially fruits and vegetables are that you are not receiving complete proteins. These are extremely important to consider. If not your muscles could break down from not receiving all of the parts they need to keep strong and keep rebuilding themselves.

    In the plant world the only one that provides complete proteins is the soybean. Having lots of pinto beans is not going to give you complete proteins, they do have a lot of protein in them, but they are not going to help as much as they could. Combining those beans with rice will give you complete proteins and let those beans do more work for you and will bring you farther than you would have before.

    Here is a quick list of some combination's that will help you get the most from your foods:http://www.savvyvegetarian.com/artic...tein-chart.pdf (I found a use for those pesky PETA people after all)

    This isn't a complete list that are many more but it is just to give you an idea. You can definitely find many more combination's by looking online.

      I totally agree with you mikehemi. It's funny you should bring this up because just this afternoon I was doing price comparisons for organic soy beans. I should be ordering 40-50 lbs. this week.

        Some can't eat soy beans, this is very good info for them!

        Thanks, downloaded and printing.

          I read somewhere, some time ago, that us humans can't properly digest soybeans. Is this bad info?

            Good question, I don't know. I know they can severely aggravate thyroid conditions. Will spelunk around and see what I can find.

              Soybeans can't be fully digested raw. They need to be cooked in order for us to properly digest them. and even then we will not be able to digest all of the carbohydrates in them. Bacteria in our digestion tract digest these carbohydrates and create gas. Just like other "gassy" foods. This is what I have been able to find so far. I will continue to look though.

                I think we'd need two stomachs .... bovine configuration .... to achieve a real benefit. I went with corn because of the numerous options .... corn bread, corn pone, corn mush, hominy, hominy soup. I could go on but ....

                  Found several write ups on soybeans, their history is quite interesting. We've been growing them for about 5,000 years, but plowing them under to enrich the soil. We didn't start eating them until much later and then in the fermented form. The reason for this (this was news to me), if you grow them, don't eat the raw beans as you pick, they are poisonous. They must be cooked.

                  I discovered the articles that talk most about their wonderfulness are generally sites that sponsor the things. Yes, Cargill wants you to eat LOTS of soybeans! Some good info here, mostly positive, but be sure and read Dr. Mercola's article too.

                  "Worlds Healthiest Foods" sing the praises of the beans, they'd have them curing leprosy and gonnaherpasyphalese: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?t...dspice&dbid=79

                  "Soybeans.org" has a downloadable soyfoods guide. They also love them. They generally poopoo any benefit that isn't healthy. http://www.soybean.org/

                  Dr. Joseph Mercola probably has the fairest writeup that includes history, problems and benefits. http://www.rheumatic.org/soy.htm
