What? Bacteria make protein?

“Where do you get your protein from?”

This is a question every vegan gets asked regularly and is also answered just as regularly but being me I always like to go a bit deeper. Join the dots.

This is a fascinating article to me as it uses the same “acid/base” model that I promote to create an “antithesis” to the behaviour that I endorse. The readers of this response to Northern Tracy’s post are advised that I have the good fortune of not being a doctor nor have I had any medical training and that none of what I write here should be considered as medical advice. I also draw the reader’s attention to the fact that many years ago I became involved in the salt business, to which I have returned in the past decade. In fact, I… Read more »

Hi, are you saying that it needs to be table salt specifically and not sea salt or himalayan salt or what not? How do you consume it in such amounts, do you “oversalt” food or add it to water?

With regard to “how do I do it” I can only make the point that if you are forcing yourself to have more salt, then why would you bother? I have the view that food without salt is like sex without sin (a nod to Pedro Almadova). My diet is largely milk, cheese, butter, eggs, bacon, lamb, boiled vegetables, red wine, coffee and tea. All my cooking is lavishly salted, especially lamb chops and I boil the vegetables in heavily salted water. I don’t put salt in my milk or wine but I do put salt in tea and coffee.… Read more »

Thank you for your reply. I just can’t stop laughing after you listed what you eat. Being somewhat vegan and reading your food preferences was like ‘whoa this is some hardcore stuff’.

In my opinion, vegans benefit hugely from a sprinkle of salt on their celery.
