How do I know my child is getting enough protein?
« on: April 25, 2008, 05:52:13 PM »
Dear Reader,
This is indeed the number one question we get from others and that we asked ourselves when we first started feeding our son living foods.

The bottom line is this: the body uses the essential amino acids to build protein. If you feed your body a protein, such as one that comes from meat, your body has to break it all down anyway to access what it needs for the human body to build a usable protein. So, if you look at it this way, the question becomes "How do I know my child is getting the amino acids he needs to build protein?" And the answer is simple: All fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds have amino acids. Dark leafy greens have all the essential amino acids the body needs, with little, if any, waste. Therein lies the core of our passion: GREEN SMOOTHIES!!! They are sweet, delicious, beautiful and provide us with everything we need!

I'm going to paste this post in the chat section, because I'm sure the protein issue is going to generate a lot of conversation. So, go there to reply to this so the thread can stay in one place.

Love,
Shawna
