64 VEGAN FOODS with more complete proteins (higher amino acid score) than hamburger beef. With a blender, any vegetable, seed, nut or fruit can be made into a puree ultra easy to eat raw, with biophotons, vitamins, flavonols, phytochemicals and enzymes meat and milk don't have, as heat destroys them totally (biophotons and enzymes and some vitamins) or partially (some anti-oxidants, vitamins). ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ Too much protein causes cancer, Alzheimer, rapid aging, acne, etc as explained at โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/XraJ9xYY2ih.

Hamburger Beef score 67 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/beef-products/6206/2

Eggplant raw 67 (can add it to smoothies, etc) โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2443/2

Burger King Hamburger 69 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fast-foods-generic/9278/2 (veggie burger can be 125 score, way more complete, see below http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/9245/2)

White Rice 71 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5813/2

Brown Rice 75 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5707/2

Laver seaweed 75 (also called nori in Japan, gim, zicai in China) โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2618/2, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laver_(seaweed) for more info, UK makes even bread from this, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nori

Tempeh 79 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4381/2 โ–บ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempeh

Raw Rye 80, soaked a long time perhaps 85 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5727/2 (15.5 grams of protein in 100 grams). The rye 80 score is not 108 as with amaranth or 99 as with buckwheat because of lower Lysine content, but if you eat a Lysine rich fruit and veggie, you get the score up to 108 asily since many veggies or fruits (watermelon for example, cheap at 1$ stores) have Lysine. 300 grams of watermelon has enough lysine to cause 100 grams of rye to move score to 108. Rye is half the price of buckwheat and amaranth in bulk.

Carrots 81 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/3026/2 (baby carrots have 81, normal carrots may be slightly different, but about the same). The benefits of carrots with lots of studies are explained at โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/4X5pkqZXrMT.

Raw Soaked Oats (whole grain, NOT the processed rolled oats) 81+ (score is 81 for raw unsoaked, soaking increases score up to 90) โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5708/2 (100 grams provide 17 grams of protein!!!). The oat 81 score is not 108 as with amaranth because of lower Lysine content, but if you eat oats with a Lysine rich fruit and veggie, you get the score up to 108 easily since most veggies or fruits (watermelon for example, cheap at 1$ stores) have Lysine. 300 grams of watermelon with 100 grams of oats gets amino acid score to 108 or so. Whole oats are cheaper than buckwheat and amaranth, but pricier than rye. Rye got less omega 6, 1 gram not 2.4 grams, so rye might be better.

Raw Oat Bran 86, soaking increases it a little bit โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5703/2 (17 grams of protein in 100 grams, a lot) To bump score to 108, add Lysine rich fruit or veggie, like watermelon.

Cooked Lentils (cannot eat raw) 86 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4338/2 - 7.5 times the protein in zukini, and the highest amount of protein per calorie of any vegan food here except spinach, broccoli, asparagus.

Raw Italian Brown or Crimini Mushrooms 86 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2486/2 (these have also a lot of Selenium, 26 mcg, or 130 times more than Italian squash or zucchini)

Coconut 87 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3106/2. The benefits of coconut are explained at โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/hYLN6LTGoBr

Raw Sunflower seeds 88 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3076/2 (also the richest source of Selenium among commonly available foods, plus 38 times more cystine in 100 grams than zukini, 17 times more protein than zukini per weight, but zukini has about 60% more protein per calorie).

Raw Zukini 89 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2639/2. Asparagus has 11 grams of protein in 100 calories, zukini 7.5 grams, Kale got 6.6 grams, broccoli 8.4, cauliflower 8, spinach 12.5. Spinach and cruciferous veggies have goitrogens and oxalate (spinach has 50 times more oxalate than zukini), so zukini, with 6.5 times less oxalate than asparagus, is better. Buckwheat has 3.85 grams of protein in 100 calories. The benefits of zukini are explained in detail at โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/7WVhiAev4wZ

Rolled, Quick or Cereal Oats (can put them in a smoothie, no soaking needed) 95 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/breakfast-cereals/1597/2 - 14 times the protein in zukini by weight, but by calorie zukini has 50% more protein. 300 grams of rolled oats added to a smoothie adds 40 grams of protein or 80% of daily needs for most people. 13 grams of protein in 100 grams. Rolled Oats glycemic index 54, quick oats 66, oatmeal 80, thus rolled oats are best for those with diabetes issues. Whole raw soaked oats (bulk bin section at whole foods stores) have even lower glycemic index and are ideal for pre-diabetics.

Cactus Pears 95 โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/CKVAe1eiPTr

Cooked Pinto Beans 96 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4430/2 - 7.5 times the protein in zukini by weight, but per calorie zukini has the same amount of protein

Soy protein isolate 99 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4465/2 (some brands have score 102 or 108, for example 108 for http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4389/2)

Dry Buckwheat 99 - the only grain that can be eaten raw without soaking - tastes like sunflower seeds - 13.2 grams of protein in 100 grams - to reduce phytic acid it's best to soak it a little, as it activates phytase, the enzyme that break phytic acid, if you eat it daily that is and want a better digestion. Soaking it for hours increases protein score even more. Also, amaranth has a score of 108, but 2.8 times the omega 6 in buckwheat. Quinoa has 3.1 times the omega 6 in buckwheat and 50% more C16-C24 saturated fat than buckwheat, so buckwheat seems the best. Oats also have double the C16-C24 saturated fat in buckwheat, amaranth triple the level in buckwheat and this fat is harming the pancreas' insulin producing cells. โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5681/2.

Spirulina 103, with 57.5g of protein in 100 grams, more protein per calorie than any food, even beef, plus Iodine and B12, two nutrients most vegan foods lack. The amount of iodine in spirulina and B12 vary by brand though and too much or too little iodine can cause problems, so it's good to buy those that indicate exact amounts. โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2765/2

Cooked Quinoa 106 (raw soaked quinoa is 106 too) โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/10352/2 (only 4.4 grams of protein in 100 grams though, 2 times less than cooked beans and lentils)

Raw Amaranth 108 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5676/2 (has more protein in 100 grams than buckwheat and rolled oats, but less than raw oats)

Cooked potatoes 109 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2770/2

Chia Seeds 115 (dissolves in water in 10 minutes) - has 80 times more omega 3 than tilapia fish per 100 grams โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3061/2. The benefits of chia seeds are presented in detail at โ–บ https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/NruXbpv8PMM

Spinach 119 โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2626/2 - highest amount of protein per calorie of any food here (12.5 grams per 100 calories), but cannot be eaten much daily due to oxalate 48 times higher than zukini and some goitrogens, especially people with kidney stone risks. Eating a little bit of more veggies is better, zukini seems the only one safe to eat in large amounts - and asparagus in medium amounts, among the things with far more protein per calorie than the best grains or legumes.

Pumpkin seeds 136 (19% protein by weight, higher than 18% for flax seeds or 16% for chia seeds, but omega 3 to omega 6 ratio is 1 to 114, instead of 3 or 4:1 as for the other two, so if you eat these seeds, it's critical to eat some flax or chia too to avoid too much omega 6) โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/nut-and-seed-products/3141/2

Not to mention that watermelon has a lot of threonine, in which zukini is lower, so with some watermelon โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2072/2, zukini protein score becomes not 89 but 129. Same for other veggies, some fruits make their score higher.

HIGH SOY INTAKE CAN LEAD TO INFERTILITY and inability to conceive easily, causing people to try 12 months instead of 1 month:

Also Soymilk amino acid score is only 25, lower than most fruits even โ–บ http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/8010/2, Miso is 44.

Men who ate a lot of soy had 41 million sperm/ml less than men who did not consume soy foods โ–บ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2721724/. -- Hum Reprod. 2008 Nov; 23(11): 2584โ€“2590.

High levels of soy (above 2 servings a day) lead to reduced ovarian function, lower circulating levels of hormones, especially lowered gonadotropin levels โ–บ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3139237/ -- J Nutr. 2010 Dec; 140(12): 2322Sโ€“2325S. However, at 1-2 servings of soy a day, no such effects were found.

In female rats, high soy intake caused infertility โ–บ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23000043 -- Toxicol Appl Pharmacol. 2012 Nov 1;264(3):335-42.

In mice, high soy intake caused adenocarcinoma and early puberty. โ–บ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1480510/ -- Environ Health Perspect. 2006 Jun; 114(6): A352โ€“A358.

Judging by these studies, it seems to be unwise for both men and women to rely on daily tofu (say a pack that has 4 servings) as the only protein source if vegan. Not just due to phytoestrogens, but also due to high levels of omega 6 inflammatory fat and poor protein quality. It is not good to give soy milk to babies or cow milk, but human milk. Soy formula milk has too many estrogens (5 times more than birth control pills, unhealthy for kids).

The news continues to develop almost faster than I can type analyses. But I've tried to round up the most critical updates from the past few hours, together with a discussion of what they mean.

The short version is this: we're seeing the formation of an "inner circle" of government, including Trump, Bannon, Miller, Kushner, Priebus, and possibly Flynn and Conway, who have been taking deliberate steps to hobble the ability of all other parts of government โ€“ย the rest of the Executive branch, Congress, and most especially the courts โ€“ย from controlling them. Somewhat unexpectedly, they went straight for an attempt to grab extraordinary physical powers over people (yesterday's Muslim ban), rather than trying to boil the frog slowly; in the context of other moves taken over the past week, this starts to look like a coherent strategy.

Power, including the power to execute every one of the things that Trump promised to do during the campaign, is the primary goal; money, in large, untraceable quantities, appears to be the secondary.๏ปฟ
