From the Melanated Man:
Revert to this post for more information: ED vs. EL: Eating Meat, Huh?!
For those of you who are wondering about how you are going to get your protein if you don’t eat animal flesh, there are many, MANY other foods besides meat that contain the protein that you need. As I mentioned previously, where do the animals we eat get their protein from?
They don’t have this special type of protein in their muscles that is essential to our welfare. But everything is a choice.
I can’t make you stop eating meat; most people find enjoyment in eating dead blood. But I DIGRESS…
Here is a list of foods with high protein:
- Garbanzo Beans (Hummus)
- Green Peas
- Sunflower Seeds
- Raw Peanuts
- Navy Beans
- Black beans
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Black-eye peas
- Passion Fruit
- Kiwi fruit (Gold)
- Honeydew melon
We have to do our own personal research instead of accepting everything that is given to us by our doctors, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States of Agriculture, etc., etc. There is enough foods besides animal flesh we can eat that has the protein that we need.
I know that fried chicken is DAMNNN GOOD!! But is it worth taking years off your life? The choice is yours.
Peace and love to my melanated family,
The Melanated Man
