I don't know if anyone will see this, but I'm giving it a try anyway.

I read somewhere that most cultures of the past had non-meat food combinations that they would use to get their protein source from. The most famous combination is beans and rice.

Is anyone familiar with other combinations, cous-cous and another addition were mentioned, but I can't remember the "partner".

Take Care,

I've heard a number of popular combinations but I can't remember all of them either.

I haven't spend too much time on it because I always just ate a variety of foods knowing that protein is one of the easiest things for humans to get nutritionally. I actually don't know anyone with a protein difficiency. I know there are people out there who fall short in protein, I just don't know any personally and I know tons of people who are vegan/vegetarian. That is why it is almost somewhat annoying when non-vegans and non-vegetarians constantly ask about how vegans get enough protein. I guess its just a common question people have who all their lives have been taught just to eat meat for protein. So that part I can understand, I just get the question EVERY SINGLE DAY at work, or the gym, or via e-mail, or walking down the street wearing my Vegan t-shirts, or whatever.

If I come across anymore popular protein combinations I'll pass it along, but as long as someone eats more than just pineapple all day long they should be fine.

Take care,

I stumbled across a great post on another board with tons of ideas for getting your protein, as well as a pretty complete list of the protien content of a number of foods. It is:

http://www.vegsource.com/talk/beginner/ ... 45301.html

I think the author is Bryanna Clark Grogan, who writes vegan cookbooks. She also lives in BC and happens to host her website through the company I work for...small world!

Best of luck,

AM

Here is another link I found. I probably should have paid more attention.

>>>If you want to be absolutely certain that you are getting enough protein, you should eat food combinations which form a complete protein, such as:

Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy<<<

isn't this just going back to combining foods such as rice and beans to get complete proteins? I thought this practice was not necessary. However I think they atleast complement eachother well, and probably do make complete proteins.
