Omg - i love meat!
Today I went to a raw food cafe with a friend who's a raw food vegan. The last time I saw him I had left veganism but was still vegetarian.
He knew I had gone back to the dark side but he's open minded about it (like I was) and so we talked abut how everyone does what they can for the planet (he kept his mouth shut), how probably everyone's proteins requirements are different, and how he said he gets his protein from spinach (I kept my mouth shut). We got juices and raw chocolate. Yum.
Still though - I came home and destroyed 250gs minced lamb cooked in coconut oil, tomato and lemon juices, black pepper, topped with full fat natural yogurt, on top of a baked white potato. Oh for the love of god, why was I vegetarian for 8 years????!
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
