INFO ON THE AVO via raw-vegan.tumblr.com/

Avocados provide all of the essential amino acids, with 18 amino acids in all, plus 7 fatty acids, including Omega 3 and 6. Avocados contain more protein than cow’s milk. A small avocado will provide more usable protein then a steak because cooked protein in meat is denatured and mostly unavailable to our liver, the organ that makes all of our body’s protein.

Ripe, raw avocados furnish all the elements we need to build the highest quality protein in our bodies. Avocado is an enzymatically-alive fruit, it ranks as the most easily digested rich source of fats and proteins in whole food form. The ripening action “predigests” complex proteins into simple, easily digested amino acids. (From Living Nutrition Magazine Vol. 11 http://www.livingnutrition.com)

Other than avocados, where can a person get their protein?

Out of the 22 amino aids found in the body, 8 must be derived from food. All 8 are abundantly available in raw plant food, especially greens. As suggested by David Wolfe, “green leafed veggies are the true body builders.”

Examples of animals who build enormous musculature on green leafy vegetation include: gorilla, giraffe, hippo, elephant, horse. People think they need flesh protein to build flesh protein. If that were true then cows would need to eat flesh to get protein. Usable protein is the key.

Cooking denatures protein molecular structure and creating free radicals, which destroy enzymes, amino acids & other cellular elements.
