Plant proteins, zinc, Omega hunt… Are habits, culture, education, memories, beliefs, second nature?

Common meals, especially at construction sites, are preference "crudivegetaliens" and "bats". This article contains elements to break a few 'received ideas'! With links worth visiting, in this order:

0 / a few questions

1 / the meat is a (DIS) advantage diet for strength and resistance?

2 / is our constitution anatomical, dental and digestive frugivore, herbivorous or omnivorous? "."

3 / can it satisfy the protein and zinc with fruit?

4 / and finally, balance economic and ecological bananas would benefit? 🙂


0 / tastes can be influenced by beliefs, memories of emotional,… the food is may be the most passionate subject both its 'sacrosanct' habits are difficult to challenge.

(s) will ' impose such or such power even if it is advantageous on the nutrition plan, sometimes seems to give envy of the reverse, as if to condemn such or that food could give envy? as evidenced by this woman, here:

This woman idealizes the cru and is attracted by the cooked: "if of course, raw eating you amply satisfied, I do not see any problem. On the contrary, so much better!"

I met people who live to 100% raw diet, others who for reasons that I've not explored are torn between what they consider ideal and what they consider bad.

I appreciate the fruits and other things I like less (cooked, for the more austere situations of shortage) or not at all (meat or fish, which I did not eat a crumb for decades, by taste and evidence, which selects the tolerant and open relations to this difference which I develop every advantage; I respect my tastes, whatever may be the consequences on the social plan, and few people exclude actually because we do not have the same taste).

The Charter is not personal obligations… And I do not know at the time where you ask yourself the question, how many inhabitants of the ecohameau would be either omnivorous, vegetarian, vegan, or even crudivegan.

For me something natural and not a precept.

What do say cultures? adaptability? our sensitivity? the top athletes? dietetics? our Anatomy?

Hunting is prohibited here even though we may recognize the hunters have their consistency. They assume their meat needs, without delegating to others the task of killing. The animals that they kill them, had the advantage of having a free life. Finally, admittedly the flush have allowed humanity to survive, for a "short" glacial period. And, even today, the ice of Greenland, where whole families feed exclusively (wild) meat and yet reach a life expectancy of 40 years.

In similar cold conditions, himalayiens, including the Hayes peoples live 120 years with a vegetable food.

We are just a few who so admire the beauty of the life that we don't like to hunt or kill. We prefer the Sun and taste of fruits (3) balanced proteins.

Humans have Anatomy and a sensibility that seems exclusive to constitution frugivore animals or herbivores, which hunt not naturally. Humans can chew in live animals over a friendly meal, there need Fireworks: separate slaughter, preparation and meal (there are the job, and then the trigger…); On the other hand, this device allowed him to survive the ice age (before which he ate no meat).

As we are born, we do not have anatomical attributes that enable us to hunt and eat whole animals directly: claws, sharp teeth, speed of race…


1 / force and dietetics:

First and foremost, I invite to type "famous vegetarians" in google or another search engine, and see that there are many sports several times world champions that have marked history. Steadfast but also body-builder and sprinter. Dietitians with a more theoretical approach, should go very far in their science to everything "explain". After decades of research and contradictions, today most give a vegetable diet to high level athletes.

There is no need to balance the amino acids in every meal, because they store is 40 days and more.

I believe what I see or I see what I believe? When you have a bias, a "received idea", mind filters to only "see" only that which confirms what he believes. Example: a person is convinced of dietary meat benefits, if he sees a skinny vegetarian? It will think "it is because he eats no meat", while if it sees an omnivore lean, it will not think that it is because its power.

The thinness is constitutional (linked to the activity of the thyroid which also influences sensitivity) more that related to food. Some people can eat a lot and stay lean (which is scientifically not a drawback for health, at the limit of the thinness), others remain fat despite their efforts to curb their appetites…

There are among vegetarians of lean people, athletes and people more fat or muscular (if you do not know enough to be able to judge, look at the lists of famous vegetarian options are available on the internet)

"I publish info on nutrition, and in particular the paleo diet on my facebook page

And on my Youtube Channel:


2 / according to these comparative tables of the digestive organs, teeth, hands… the human constitution would be frugivore but nothing omnivore

the "paleo" is a trend committing errors and inaccuracies to promote the frugivorousness with meat; they criticize the length specified for the intestines on "sweet frugality", too hastily: "paleo" with poorly differentiated 'small intestine length' and 'gut length':
For herbivores:
Length of the small intestine: 10 to 12 times the length of the trunk
Length of the digestive tract: 30 times the length of the trunk (mostly)


According to

, here is the protein content of the fruit being wealthy.

In a water-filled fresh fruit, when one makes meals 100% fruits can (easily) eating 1 kg of each fruit, so it gives the number of grams of protein per kilogram of fruit:

Guava (Feijoa): 24 grams per kilogram, banana or cherimoya 16 gr/kg, mature white or durian 15 gr/kg

so per day, 3 to 4 kg of these fruits fill the official protein needs.

Annonas (Cherimoyas South-Spanish, Asimines), French and bananas and dry cold Durian proteins which, coming by boat, are among the foods the + advantageous in terms of CO2 balance: to see the end of this topic.

In Africa, the 100% banana meal is called '' a hand of bananas '': 5 bananas. It is also the best fruit market (by kg, € 1.6 bio at aldi, €2 in organic shop, noted that on the contrary, potatoes and peppers are cheaper in organic shop and retail supermarket)

It is better not to mix fruit has a meal cooked to avoid intestinal discomfort.

Conversely, most fruits are poor in proteins, around 4-6 gr/kg, and even 2 gr/kg of Apple (which has other benefits, like the pectin for the detox).

Red or yellow pepper (but not green), is the most rich in vit C (2000../kg, or 4 times + orange) and has the advantage to be alkalizing. Gogi berries have lost most of their vitamin as it dries, and it would be illusory to want to cover its needs with some gogi.

We need vit c, our organization can do itself, unlike other animals.

Zinc: watermelon

Omega-3: in the cherimoyas, the pumpkins. If we eat lawyers and other oils most too rich in omega-6, must be compensated with oils such as omega 3 are more numerous than omega-6: as the oil of camelina or chia.

Designations "rich in omega 3 '' are sometimes misleading, because if there is a majority of Omega 6, their benefit is canceled.

I note 2 ancestral seeds, not "selected" or impoverished in a perspective of productivist agriculture: camelina (40% O3 vs. 20% of O6), the chia (65% O3 against 20% of O6 and flax.

These oils must be raw and they go rancid quickly, must be very consuming them fresh, and keep them cool and away from light.

Their well chewed whole seeds or pureed seem good and at the same time bring their proteins if they are well ground: when swallowed whole, they would remain entire up out entire.

camelina, chia and lin have the highest proportion of Omega 3
camelina, chia and lin have the highest proportion of Omega 3


(4) the balance sheet CARBONNE of bananas (this link is active)

followed other concurrent notions of ecological balance: 'needs in Earth's surface', other gases greenhouse, water, energy… and then a link to introduce in europe a banana resistant to winters at-10 ° C! (and 50 other autonomous fruit sometimes unreleased and more productive)

Let us heed the bio label because conventional culture banana is n ° 2 of the outrageous use of pesticides behind cotton. Some organic labels guarantee also a 'fair trade':

(1, € 7 kg in bio at aldi, €2 / kg bio-specialty store, and more expensive in other supermarkets)

I'd hate to moralize other foods, but show that the banana is the most (and nuts) eco among trade protein foods, because I see that many people deprive themselves of bananas by ecological guilt, (or fear grow while without bread do not grow; Nature or in smoothies…).

If you have not the chance to make a positive ecological footprint by eating under the tree (or locally – and then sowing their seeds autour) cherimoyas South-Spanish, Asian durians, feijoas of provence or a very large amount of morus or elaeagnus Europeans, the ration of proteins to reasonable budget can then be made either from cereals (and legumes) or exotic banana-based. For those who have not (yet) a conveniently provided garden, here is a comparison of these compromises:

  • Equal calories, bananas made homegrown produce 4 times less CO2 than sandwiches!
  • The link above indicates: the energy spent cycling comes from the food you eat: the carbon footprint of a mile (1, 6km) bike:
    65g CO2: powered by bananas
    90g CO2: powered by cereal with milk
    200g CO 2: powered by Bacon
    260g CO 2: powered by cheeseburgers
    2800g CO2: asparagus imported by air-powered.. .and these figures include 50 grams/mile for the manufacture and maintenance of the bike! by removing these 50 g., the difference would be even more marked (ecological bananas compared to other foods of commerce).

The CO2 balance (calculated with very many parameters) to have at home in france 18 kg of exotic banana, is equivalent to 60KM by car.

Bananas are responsible for issuing of 0.48 kg of CO2 per kilo, but I don't eat meat (1 kg of mutton = 39.2 kg of CO2, 1 kg beef = 27kg of CO2), I do not eat fish or seafood (1 kg of farmed = 11.9 kg of CO2, 1 kg of tuna canned = 6.1 kg of CO2), I avoid dairy products (1 kg cheese = 13.5 kg of CO2) (, 1 kg of yogurt = 2.2 kg of CO2, 1 kg of milk = 1.9 kg CO2), I have banned plastic bags and I avoid plastic in General (1 kg plastic = 6kg of CO2). (Source: Tree Hugger)

Some people are 60 KM/day and are worried about ecology by buying local meat which further contributes to the greenhouse effect, because the production of cO2 and methane *. It takes 3kg of grain to produce 1 kg of eggs, 15 kg of grain to produce 1 kg of red meat. Or even more areas of pasture! that would be more advantageously sown in fruit (sub) spontaneous. (A theory is developed according to which 1 ha (10,000 M2) would then suffice to feed one person totally vegan, 7 ha for an omnivore "local")

Worst 1 kg of beef from Brazil would produce as much CO2 to cross france in car! According to this source

* Methane (livestock) contributes 25 times more CO2 greenhouse effect

Bananas do not require greenhouses, labour, packaging, cooking or preparation! and the fast-growing and abundant banana take the carbon from the air to make humus.
And they are always transported by boat (100 times less than production of CO2 as the aircraft).

They avoid any disputes related to the kitchen and the tableware.

If the balance sheet in terms of "need in Earth's surface", reports are consistent and yet more contrasted: a bowl cereal asking for more area than a banana, livestock asking wasting many cereals, not to mention that it produces methane because of animal droppings, and methane contributing 25 times + greenhouse CO2.

In the end, livestock is responsible for 80% of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, which corresponds to 18% of all gas emissions to greenhouse effect of human activities (9% of CO2, 37% of methane, 65% of the N2O) 6. and it takes 6 to 17 times more surface of Earth to produce meat than to produce soybeans, 15 times more water, 10 times more energy, (Editor's Note: and misery and suffering for the animal as to human intestines)… :

In france, the variety Helen's can produce good bananas to seeds, and withstand winter temperatures of-10 ° C.

I provided the seeds

This banana resistant to winters at-10 ° C! (and 50 other autonomous fruit sometimes unreleased and more productive)

Sow them for a (n) another future 🙂
