Fe Fi Fo Fum, I need Protein and dont want to Nibble on an Animals Bum!

I NEED PROTEIN!
One of the most commonly asked questions of the vegan lifestyle: Where will I get my protein from, part of this question is will it be as good as meat based protein and of course, the pinnacle of human questioning regarding protein… Look at these teeth and look at these claws, I was made to eat meat….. right?
The first lesson for us to learn today is a very simply law of the Universe, by understanding this simple principle, we can lead ourselves, in many aspects of our lives, to a place of personal truth, and, vis-a-vis, positive personal growth and change.  Today we are applying this law simply to our bodies and what we eat or do not eat (which only largely determines what are bodies do, then you have thoughts and other factors we can chat about later).  I will first demonstrate in a quick story about a business person my first tid bit I would like you to consider.
Alejandra started a business, in my world, I do not know an Alejandra who started a business for 2 dollars, so know this is metaphoric, so, she started a business and it cost her a total of two dollars in advertising and marketing, packaging, electricity, employees wages etc. , only to end up making one dollar.  She spent two and only made one.  Most of us, even those amongst us who are deplorable business people will know this is a very bad equation for profitability, or making gains.
Do you see where I am going with this, I told you, very quick story… Before you read on, what could this relate to in the body….  Ok, keep reading.
Our bodies use energy to digest our food in order to get more energy.  We must make saliva, chew (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT – try to chew your age, get your children to start doing this at 12), peristoltic action (muscle movement) to get food through our entire system, further enzymes and acids to be made in the stomach to properly digest, action of all the organs involved, simply raising your hand to your mouth involves complexities too numerous to list, eating takes energy and a lot of it!  Many scientists agree and studies are beginning to show that one of the fundamental reasons for human “aging” is over eating and improper eating.
If we use more energy to process something than we gain, how long can we run the business of our bodies?  Do you see/does that make sense?
If you eat an organic carrot, you will gain energy as it is relatively easy to digest and comes pre-packed with it’s own enzymes which allows your body to use less of its own energy to custom create enzymes, so you end up with a pretty good GAIN.
If this same carrot is cooked, more than likely all of it’s enzymes are now destroyed, your body must make ALL the digestive enzymes, you net gain is now lower, as your body had to create digestive enzymes and you are getting less vitamins as some/many may be destroyed by the heat.
Now, take this same carrot and raise it on a NON ORGANIC farm that uses pesticides, heavy fertilizers, fungicides, weed killers etc., basically what all major commercial farming operations do these days, the reason we get carrots that make guys envious, tomatoes that are so big you could make a jar of pasta sauce with one or two and of course, good luck finding an actual taste.  Lets not falter in our path, we’re going to eat this carrot.
Your body now has to deal with not only making enzymes as many of the plants natural ones are incomplete, your body must begin disposing of waste.
Remember the petroleum based fertilizers, insecticides, etc. They are all in there!  You are eating the very thing a person should have worn a bio-chem suit in order to spray (many times they do!)!  You’re eating that, it sinks into the veggies, just like it would sink into you if you didnt have that suit on.  Not to mention, there are far fewer nutrients to begin with as the soils used in these operations have largely been destroyed and are the equivalent of styrofoam (exageration to make point, well, unfortunately, not a great exaggeration at all).  Basically the soil is now simply a medium to hold fertilizer.
Your body is taxed to the limit simply getting rid of all the dangerous things you are ingesting, let alone worrying about nutrition.  Nutrition with this type of food usually encompasses a very small amount of vitamins and minerals, basically it is good to fill your stomach, after you begin digesting, its a losing business for the body.  LOSS
Now you cook that same carrot, near total loss, you are filling your belly. Having a slightly better view of raw/cooked, organic/non organic, you begin to put food in perspective.
This is one of the many ways you can start to “add truth” to your diet and since you are what you eat, to your life as a whole.  Does this apple give me more or less energy, does this job give me more or less energy, does this relationship, it’s all about your relationship to anything else in the universe, does it give you more energy than it takes from you?
That being said, lets learn about protein, the primary building block of the human machine!
We are going to focus only on simple facts of the “machine”, there is nothing to argue about here, this is simple construction.  You can make up your own minds about the information, We are not here to convince anyone of anything, you want to take a Ferrari 4 wheeling through mud and rocks, be my guest (metaphor).
That humans are so very adaptable allows us to do many things which are not good for our health and still survive for long periods of time (drug/alcohol addictions, dangerous work environments, terrible relationships etc.).  So, first things first, here is a complete breakdown of all things associated with eating food for meat eating animals (carnivores), animals that eat meat and plants (omnivores), plant eaters (herbivores) and humans.  Humans are in a separate category as we are not at a place in our history where we can agree on us.  So, as to not offend anyones sensibilities, we shall remain apart, know and understand one thing very well, we ARE an animal, just as a rat is an animal, a cow is an animal, a chihuahua is an animal, a shark is an animal (fishy one), YOU ARE JUST AN ANIMAL, dont forget this, you fit into the greater scheme, the big picture, you are not the king of the big picture, you are a part…
I am going to put forth a comparison, not done by me, and unfortunately I forgot where I got a lot of the stuff for this article as it was meant to be a simple thing for a cooking class and it has taken on a little life of its own, if you recognize this material as any of your own, by all means, let me know so we may get you credit for your info and taxonomic genius!  Based on the following comparisons, you decide what you are supposed to be eating based solely on the machinery.  Not about whether or not you like meat, this has nothing to do with you liking meat, me being vegan or what kind of car your neighbor drives, or what is on sale at the local supermarket…. let go of the ego for a moment and just look at the machine you were given at birth compared to the other machines currently on the market:

What do you think?
Why do we need proteins, they are what the body uses by breaking them down into amino acids which are then used to make specific proteins for itself so it can heal.  The body is in constant repair, 24 hours a day from birth to death, whenever this repair system breaks down, you know it.
We are able, as humans, to make a lot of the amino acids needed, HOWEVER, there are currently 9 out of 20 that we cannot make.  These are called “essential”, we get them through our food intake.  If we do not get them for a long enough period of time, all sorts of trouble will ensue.  Starting with general weakness leading gradually to serious illness of all kinds.
For the plant world, Complete Proteins (meaning all amino acids are present) are very easy to find:
Algae such as chlorella and spirulina
Amaranth
Buckwheat
Hemp
Soya beans and products such as tofu and tempeh
Quinoa
there are more, but that is up to you, do some research, learn about your body…
Incomplete Proteins:
Legumes, Nuts and Seeds, Whole Grains
Bean sprouts, Almonds, Barley
Black eyed peas Cashew nuts, Brown rice
Kidney beans, Nut butters, Corn
Lentils, Seed Sprouts, Oats
Peas, Sunflower/sesame/hemp/pumpkin seeds, Wholegrain pasta and breads…
Once we have our list of incomplete proteins, it is then a simple matter of combining to make complete proteins and keep us healthy, many of you do it without even realizing!  Here are some examples:
Hummus and pitta bread
Beans on toast (whole wheat)
Peanut butter on wholegrain bread
Muesli and soya milk
Rice with peas or beans
Corn and beans (the way the corn is processed with Lime in traditional tortillas and then combined with beans makes a complete protein, our oldest ancestors knew this and modern science has only shown us in the last 30 years!  Modern science is not the key to health, wisdom is.)
How much do you truly need?
After all, it is almost as bad to overfill an auto engine with oil as to have it under-filled…
We need 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight. Based on this, an average male who weighs 154 pounds should eat around 56 grams of protein per day. Females who weigh 110 pounds should eat on average around 40 grams of protein per day.   At a given time, your body can digest around 25 grams of protein, try to break it up through out your day…
Some examples of vegan protein amounts would be: 
3/4 cup of lentils = 13 grams
150 grams of firm tofu = 21 grams
1 slice wholemeal bread = 3 grams
1/4 cup of almonds = 8 grams
1/2 a cup of hummus = 8 grams
2 tablespoons of peanut butter = 7 grams
1 cup of brown rice = 5 grams
1 cup cooked spaghetti = 8 grams
1 cup of soya milk = 7 grams
1 cup of baked beans = 12 grams
1 cup tempeh = 41 grams
You can see from the above listed food items that it is fairly easy to get enough vegan protein. Most nuts, grains, beans and seeds contain a high amount of protein – and nearly all vegetables contain good amounts of protein too.
Interesting note – Kale is one of the highest concentration of not only protein but of EVERYTHING!  SUPERFOOD
A vegan diet will easily meet or exceed the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of protein but will typically be lower than that of someone who eats a meat and dairy diet (the average American consumes around double the RDA of protein – America also leads the world in dietary linked death!). But the good news is that this lower intake will also benefit you as a high protein diet has been linked to osteoporosis and aggravating poor kidney functioning, blocked vessels/arteries, heart disease etc..  Further, the protein from vegetables is easier for the body to digest and use.  Of course, it is also karma free, and for a growing number of people who are slowly ‘switching on”, this is of very high importance.
That concludes our brief lesson on the animal kingdom, proteins and what it is to be a human with a fork in one hand and a knife in the other.  Enjoy your life and always do your best to tell yourself the truth!
As Mark Twain said, if all slaughterhouses had glass walls, the world would be vegetarian.
Aloha!

 NECESITO PROTEINA! Unas de las preguntas más comunes sobre el estilo de vida vegano: “De dónde obtendré proteína? Será tan buena como la proteína animal?”… y claro, la duda: “No se supone que como humano está en mi naturaleza comer carne? es decir, mira estos colmillos, mira mis garras…  es natural… no?” La primera lección a aprender el día de hoy es una simple y básica ley universal; comprendiendo este simple principio podremos acercanos en todos los aspectos de nuestra vida, a nuestra verdad personal y encarar un crecimiento y cambio postivo. Hoy aplicaremos esta simple ley a nuestro cuerpo considerando lo que comemos y lo que no. Antes que nada déjenme compartirles la rápida y corta historia de Alejandra… Alejandra comenzó su negocio y le costó un total de dos pesos en publicidad, mercadotecnia, electricidad, salarios, etc… y su ganancia fue de solamente un peso. Comprenden a donde voy con esto?… les dije, una historia rapida y corta… Nuestros cuerpos usan energía para digerir los alimentos y de esta manera obtener mas energía. Necesitamos producir saliva, masticar, transportar este alimento por el tracto digestivo a través de movimientos musculares de nuestros órganos, generar enzimas y ácidos en el estómago para digerir, vaya, que la sola accion de llevar un bocado a la boca implica numerosos procesos en el cuerpo como para mencionarlos ahora. Comer requiere energía, mucha energía!  muchos científicos estan de acuerdo y ya se van realizando estudios para demostrar que una de las razones fundamentales por las que el ser humano envejece es el hecho de que comemos demasiado, y mal. Si la energía que utilizamos para procesar algo es mayor a la energía que este algo nos brinda, cuanto tiempo podremos mantener el ‘negocio’ de nuestro cuerpo a flote? Comprenden? Si comemos una zanahora orgánica, obtenemos energía ya que es un alimento fácil de digerir y que viene pre-empaquetado en sus propias enzimas, lo que hace que nuestro cuerpo no necesite producir tantas enzimas y por lo tanto utlizamos menos energía. Si esta misma zanahoria es cocinada, lo mas seguro es que todas sus enzimas se destruyan, ahora el cuerpo tendra que producir TODAS las enzimas digestivas, ahora nuestra ganancia neta es menor. Si comemos una zanahoria cocinada no orgánica, de una granja comercial masiva…  ahora vamos comprendiendo!! nuestro cuerpo ahora tendrá que lidiar no solamente con producir las enzimas, pero con deshacerse de todos los desechos tóxicos como petróleo, fertilizantes, insecticidas, Y esta zanahora porta muchos menos nutrientes ya que la tierra en la que crece ha sido destruida y ahora es tan nutritiva como el unicel (ok, exagero pero para remarcar en el punto). Ahora, comemos una hamburguesa de un restaurante de comida rápida que se reconoce por dos arcos dorados y tiene como mascota a un terrorífico payaso… Wow! no puedo ni comenzar a explicarles lo que el cuerpo necesita hacer para digerir esto, definitivamente terminamos con un déficit bastante serio. Esta es una de muchas maneras en las que podemos ir “agregando veracidad” a nuestra dieta, y ya que somos lo que comemos, a nuestra vida entera. Esta manzana me dará más o menos energía? Este trabajo me da más o menos energía? Esta relación (y hablo de cualquier relación con cualquier cosa en el universo) me dará o me quitará energía? Habiendo dicho eso, aprendamos ahora sobre proteína, el bloque de construcción principal para la máquina humana! Nos enfocaremos únicamente en los aspectos más simples de nuestra ‘máquina’, no hay mucho que argumentar aquí, esto es simple construcción. Pueden ustedes seguir su criterio con respecto a la información, no nos interesa convencer a nadie de nada, si quieren conducir un Ferrari por rocas y lodo, adelante! La realidad de que el ser humano es una criatura altamente adaptable nos da la libertad de hacer muchas cosas que no son buenas para nuestra salud y aún así sobrevivir por periodos largos de tiempo (drogas, alcohol, ambientes de trabajo peligrosos, etc).  Así que comencemos con lo principal, aquí estan algunos datos simples relacionados con el consumo de carne y animales carnívoros, animales omnívoros, herbívoros y humanos. Ustedes decidan para que estamos hechos de acuerdo a las características de nuestra máquina. Esto no tiene nada que ver con el hecho de si les gusta la carne o no, con que yo sea vegana o no, o con el tipo de auto del vecino, las ofertas de Calimax…  dejen ir su ego por un momento y simplemente observen la máquina que se les proporcionó al nacer comparando con otras máquinas en el mercado: Músculos Faciales: CARNIVORO: reducidos – pocos para facilitar una apertura de mandíbula enorme HERBIVORO: bien desarrollados OMNIVORO: reducidos HUMANO: bien desarrollados Tipo de Mandíbula: CARNIVORO: ángulo no expandido HERBIVORO: ángulo expandido OMNIVORO: ángulo no expandido HUMANO: ángulo expandido Ubicación de la Articulación de la Mandíbula CARNIVORO: en el mismo plano que los molares HERBIVORO: por derriba del plano de los molares OMNIVORO: en el mismo plano que los molares HUMANO: por derriba del plano de los molares Rango de movimiento de la Mandíbula CARNIVORO: unidimensional, mínimo movimiento lateral HERBIVORO: amplio, buen movimiento lateral y frontal OMNIVORO: unidimensional, mínimo movimiento lateral HUMANO: amplio, buen movimiento lateral y frontal Musculatura Principal de la Mandíbula CARNIVORO: temporales HERBIVORO: masetero y pterygoideo OMNIVORO: temporales HUMANO:  masetero y pterigoideo Apertura de boca en relación al tamaño de cabeza CARNIVORO: grande HERBIVORO: chica OMNIVORO: grande HUMANO: chica Dientes incisivos CARNIVORO: cortos y puntiagudos HERBIVORO: gruesos, planos y con forma de espada OMNIVORO: cortos y puntiagudos HUMANO: gruesos, planos y con forma de espada Dientes colmillos CARNIVORO: largos, filosos y cúrveos HERBIVORO: sin filo y cortos o largos (para defenderse) o ninguno OMNIVORO: largos, filosos y cúrveos HUMANO: cortos y sin filo Dientes molares CARNIVORO: filoso, con forma de navaja HERBIVORO: planos con superficies complejas e irregulares OMNIVORO: con forma de navaja o planos pero filosos HUMANO: planos con cúspides irregulares Masticación CARNIVORO: ninguna, tragan el bocado entero HERBIVORO: necesita de masticación extensiva OMNIVORO: traga el bocado entero o con simplemente quebrado HUMANO: necesita de masticación extensiva Salivación CARNIVORO: sin enzimas digestivas HERBIVORO: con enzimas digestivas para carbohidratos OMNIVORO: sin enzimas digestivas HUMANO: con enzimas digestivas para carbohidratos Tipo de estómago: CARNIVORO: simple HERBIVORO: simple o con cámaras múltiples OMNIVORO: simple HUMANO: simple Acidez estomacal CARNIVORO: menor o igual a pH 1 con comida en el estómago HERBIVORO“ pH de 4 o 5 con comida en el estómago OMNIVORO: menor o igual a pH 1 con comida en el estómago HUMANO: pH de 4 o 5 con comida en el estómago Capacidad estomacal CARNIVORO: 60% a 70% del volumen total del tracto digestivo HERBIVORO: menos del 30% del volumen total del tracto digestivo OMNIVORO: 60% a 70% del volumen total del tracto digestivo HUMANO: 21% a 27% del volumen total del tracto digestivo Longitud del intestino delgado CARNIVORO: de 3 a 6 veces la longitud del cuerpo HERBIVORO: de 10 a 12 o mas veces la longitud del cuerpo OMNIVORO: de 4 a 6 veces la longitud del cuerpo HUMANO: entre 10 a 11 veces la longitud del cuerpo Colon CARNIVORO: simple, corto y suave HERBIVORO: largo, complejo, puede tener forma de pequeños sacos OMNIVORO: simple, corto y suave HUMANO: largo, con pequeños sacos Hígado CARNIVORO: puede desintoxicar la vitamina A HERBIVORO: no puede desintoxicar la vitamina A OMNIVORO: puede desintoxicar la vitamina A HUMANO: no puede desintoxicar la vitamina A Riñones CARNIVORO: orina extremadamente concentrada HERBIVORO: orina moderadamente concentrada OMNIVORO: orina extremadamente concentrada HUMANO: orina moderadamente concentrada Uñas CARNIVORO: garras filosas HERBIVORO: uñas planas o pezuñas OMNIVORO: garras filosas HUMANO: uñas planas Que piensan? Por qué necesitamos proteinas? porque el cuerpo las utiliza una vez metabolizadas y descompuestas en aminoácidos para sanarse. El cuerpo está en constante reparacion, 24 horas, todos los dias desde que nacemos hasta que morimos, si en cualquier momento este sistema de reparación falla, lo notamos. Como humanos somos capaces de fabricar muchos de los aminoácidos necesarios, SIN EMBARGO, actualmente son 9, de 20, que no podemos fabricar. Estos son los llamados aminoácidos ‘esenciales’, los obtenemos por medio de nuestra alimentación. Si no los obtenemos durante un periodo de tiempo suficientemente largo, surgen todo tipo de problemas. Comenzando con debilidad general hasta enfermedades graves de todo tipo. En el mundo de las plantas, proteínas completas (eso es, que poseen todos los tipos de aminoácidos) son muy fáciles de encontrar: algas como clorela y espirulina amaranto trigo sarraceno cáñamo frijoles de soya y productos como el tofu y tempeh quinoa Proteinas incompletas: leguminosas, nueces, semillas y granos enteros germinados, frijoles, almendras, cebada nueces de la India, arroz integral chícharos, pasta integral y pan Una vez que tenemos nuestra lista de proteinas incompletas, es solo cuestion de combinarlas para crear la proteína completa y mantenernos sanos, muchos de ustedes ya lo hacen sin saber!! He aqui unos ejemplos: hummus y pan pita frijoles con pan integral crema de mani con pan integral muesli y leche de soya arroz con chicharos o frijoles maíz y frijoles (la manera en la que el maíz se nixtamaliza y se combina con los frijoles hace una proteína completa, nuestros ancestros lo sabían y la ciencia moderna nos lo ha demostrado a penas en los últimos 30 años! La ciencia moderna no es la llave para la salud, la sabiduría si). Cuanta proteina necesitamos en realidad? Despues de todo, rellenar en exceso de aceite nuestro automóvil es igual de malo que tenerlo bajo de aceite… Nosotros necesitamos 0.8 gramos de proteinas por cada kilogramo de peso corporal. Basándonos en esto, un hombre promedio que pese más o menos 75 kilos necesitaría consumir aproximadamente 60 gramos de proteina al dia. Mujeres de 60 kilos, 48 gramos… en un momento dado, nuestro cuerpo puede digerir aproximadamente 25 gramos de proteina, asi que procura consumir la proteina en pequeñas dosis a lo largo del día. Algunos ejemplos de proteinas veganas podrían ser: 3/4 taza de lentejas = 13 gramos 150 gramos de tofu firme = 21 gramos 1 rebanada de pan integral = 3 gramos 1/4 taza de almendras = 8 gramos 1/2 taza de hummus = 8 gramos 2 cucharadas de crema de maní = 7 gramos 1 taza de arroz integral = 5 gramos 1 taza de espageti cocinado = 8 gramos 1 taza de leche de soya = 7 gramos 1 taza de frijoles cocinados = 12 gramos 1 taza de tempeh = 41 gramos Pueden ver en esta lista que es bastante fácil obtener suficiente proteina vegetal. La mayoria de nueces, granos, frijoles y semillas contienen cantidades altas de proteinas – y casi todos los vegetales contienen buenas dosis tambien. Nota interesante: la col verde (kale) es el alimento con la mayor concentracion no solo de proteina, pero de TODO! Una dieta vegana fácilmente cumple y hasta excede la recomendación diaria de proteina, pero en general será menor que la de una dieta que incluya carne o lácteos (los americanos por ejemplo, consumen en promedio el doble de la recomendación diaria de proteinas – y tienen el índice de muerte relacionada a la dieta mas alta del mundo!). La buena noticia es que este consumo más bajo nos beneficia ya que las dietas altas en proteinas estan ligadas al padecimiento de enfermedades como osteoporosis, problemas en los riñones, arterias y venas bloqueadas, enfermedades cardiacas, etc. Ademas, la proteina vegetal es mas fácil de digerir y utilizar para el cuerpo. Esto concluye nuestra breve lección sobre el mundo animal, proteinas y lo que es ser un ser humano con un tenedor en una mano y un cuchillo en la otra. Disfruta tu vida y siempre haz tu mejor esfuerzo por decirte la verdad a ti mismo! Aloha!
