There is no one "perfect food".  In terms of fulfilling human micro-nutrient needs, the closest thing is human blood, but that's damn expensive, and contains cholesterol other bad stuff.   :lol:

Sweet potato is just 6% protein.  It has tons of Vitamin A and other micro-nutrients, like most plants do, but to get the FDA daily dose of protein (and I like to get 2-3 times that) and calcium you'd need to eat 3.3 kilograms of them - so much "carb junk" will make you fat, and you'll be sick of them and craving meat very soon.  Peanuts are 18% calories from protein, but 71% calories from fat.  You get the idea.

The only way to have a healthy vegan diet is to focus on low-fat foods that are over 20% calories from protein (beans, peas, legumes, select vegetables, best kinds of bread, etc), and "JUST SAY NO" to foods that are under 10% calories from protein (most fruits, sweets, oils, rice, potatoes, etc).  So you only worry about macro-nutrients (i.e. protein / cabrs / fat), while micro-nutrients are pretty much taken care of by default from the veggies and beans, plus there's nothing easier and cheaper than vitamin supplements.

In the Garden of the TimeLady tomatoes and squash grow the best, so I presume when the lights have grown dark and Detroit has deterioated further into Little Congo I will have food. So that's the best for me!

Stop posting on this forum, it's all about to be deleted.  This has got to be the biggest Nazi bookburning in human history!  My life has been completely and totally destroyed.  The only thing that matters now is revenge and death.

There's 0 doubt in my mind now that FTL is a fascist experiment of some sort to make fools like me throw away years of their lives for fucking nothing!

That's more than half the forum!  I've been here since 2006.  That's it, there's no justifying this.  It's all over.  


IT'S ALL FUCKING OVER!

nah, you are wrong. The change is small. A very insignificantly small amount of data has been removed. The data that takes its place in time will be far greater. I guarantee that.

I wonder if he'll tape up all the windows in the trailer, eat 10lbs of beans, and fart himself to death.

No, if the commies won they would keep that old shit around forever just to satisfy a few peoples nostalgic bullshit quirks. Kinda like they do with "historica site" homes.
