Vegan meat

some youtubers made sarahs dream burger, the impossible burger (or rather a close impersonation of one). they used coconut oil as the fat in it.

“Vegan meat” is an oxymoron. Veganism is a religion, not a diet that is ideal for anyone’s health. (I am an ex-vegan.)

People should eat more fish. It more closely resembles where human beings evolved to get their protein and fat. Farmed land animals have too little omega-3 fats and too many added hormones and preservatives.

Ocean farming (i.e. seasteading) is the future. Problems like mercury are vastly overblown and can be solved through fish-farm water filtration technology.

Replace your plant-slime voodoo-burger with a nice big local agorist greenhouse salad, some unprocessed low-glycemic grains like buckwheat, and sashimi - that’s as healthy as human food can get.

The impossible burger isn’t for vegans, it’s for meat eaters who wish they were vegan.

I’ve been vegan for 25 years, and have no interest in it.

You should just eat bugs. Probably the most economical and healthy. You just need to get over eating bugs.

I have standards, so I can’t do that.

Y u no eat fish?

I didn’t like fish or seafood even when I ate meat. I also don’t like to eat seaweed. Something about that ocean smell.

But yeah, probably really healthy.

Why do you think we evolved to get our protein and fat from fish? I would be interested in your take on this presentation by Brenda Davis: https://vimeo.com/123268077

It doesn’t make sense to me that humans would have gotten their fat and protein from animals, since dead animals don’t last long. Whereas rice, beans, and grains last for months. They are also a lot less expensive than fish. It would seem to me that our ancestors must have been pretty stupid to rely on fish instead of starchy foods to get their fat and protein. Especially since my understanding is that we need very little fat, that we can get from all the plants we eat, and also plants provide all the essential amino acids in the protein that we need.

Also, per this article, our daily requirements for fat are just 1% of our calories: http://www.rawfoodexplained.com/fats/how-the-body-uses-fat.html

Lastly, from what I understand, there are only 8 essential amino acids and we get them all easily from plants (legumes, vegetables, fruit, and grains). https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/full/10.1161/01.cir.0000018905.97677.1f As such, I don’t see why our ancestors would have needed fish for protein needs.

Have you looked at this study (A Comparison of Primitive and Modern Diets
and Their Effects) by Weston Price, you can read for free here http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200251h.html

About:

An epic study demonstrating the importance of whole food nutrition, and the degeneration and destruction that comes from a diet of processed foods.

“For nearly 10 years, Weston Price and his wife traveled around the world in search of the secret to health. Instead of looking at people afflicted with disease symptoms, this highly-respected dentist and dental researcher chose to focus on healthy individuals, and challenged himself to understand how they achieved such amazing health. Dr. Price traveled to hundreds of cities in a total of 14 different countries in his search to find healthy people. He investigated some of the most remote areas in the world. He observed perfect dental arches, minimal tooth decay, high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health in those groups of people who ate their indigenous foods. He found when these people were introduced to modernized foods, such as white flour, white sugar, refined vegetable oils and canned goods, signs of degeneration quickly became quite evident. Dental caries, deformed jaw structures, crooked teeth, arthritis and a low immunity to tuberculosis became rampant amongst them. Dr. Price documented this ancestral wisdom including hundreds of photos in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.”

Great info IMHO…

There’s pretty much overwhelming evidence, as far as I understand it, about the harmfulness of refined sugar on teeth. I would rather eat it though, and just swish some water in my mouth along with brushing my teeth and using mouthwash.
