40. I'm Not Sure the "Complementary Protein" Thing Works for Everybody
I know it works for some, but when I try to do that instead of meat, my energy level craters and I'm constantly hungry
and develop a craving for meat. I eat considerably less meat than would be in a "standard American diet", but I seem
to need at least some. The need for meat may vary considerably from person to person, possibly being dependent
on how far north their ancestors came from.

I also develop a craving for vegetables if I'm not getting enough.

I get considerably more exercise than average too. My body was never too keen on sitting still anyway
(got a lot of $# for that when I was a kid) so I try to indulge my natural desire to be in motion, as much as possible.
Swimming is good, bicycling is good, dancing is the best!

A nice piece of barbecued dead animal can be pretty damn good too, especially after a weekend of dancing.
We buy local grass-fed beef and lamb and free-range chicken. Practically all of the stores around here sell that now.
Cows and sheep have this wonderful ability to turn inedible grass into yummy food. Why the #∑ should we feed them corn?
Grass-fed meat is considerably leaner too. The purpose of a feedlot is to "fatten 'em up", but we don't WANT all that fat!
Soon, the rising price of corn will put the feedlots out of business anyway and they'll all have to go back to grass-fed.
