            Whales are mammals, not animals, actually. Common misconception because they cant talk.

              there's no such thing as botanical vegetable. vegetable is just an arbitrary label we apply to all kinds of different plants, even fruit.
              legumes are fruit seeds

              There's no such thing as a zoological whale. Whale is just an arbitrary label we apply to all kinds of different large sea creatures, even sharks. Baleen whales are cetaceans.

            Whales are technically deer as observed by the fact whale meat is placed next to the reindeer and moose meat at the supermarket.

    Yeah I eat a ton of legumes, it's my main source of protein. Lentils, chickpeas, peas, soy, beans, peanuts all yummy and nutritious. Recently saw a review of the bambara nut which seems promising. Its a legume that tastes like a mix between peanut and beans and apparently contain every typ of nutrient a human needs except some sulphurous compounds but if you combine it with corn you could live on that alone. Really want to try it but it's rare outside of Madagascar, Africa and South East Asia.

    You have to use so many spices and ingredients to make them taste good is my problem.

      I've been on an elimination diet mostly just eating beans with some salt and butter or olive oil. It's not bad as long as you use enough salt and fat. Would still be nice to get some aromatics and spices eventually though.

      Most of the info I looked at said legumes are about 75% as good as animal protein. Since they're lower in protein it's probably not ideal as your main protein source but it's not bad especially if you eat them in place of other starchy foods that are lower in protein. I get about half my protein from beans and lentils and I don't feel like I'm lacking.

        Well the big thing is that they are low in specific essential amino acids. Which requires either supplementation or a well thought out mix of sources.
        Especially if someone tries to live vegetarian or vegan it is noticeably harder and in turn one has to me way more mindful of the dietary combinations snd amounts one needs.

          Yeah it's often recommended to pair beans with grains because it makes a complete protein. Although it's still a bit low since grains are even starchier. If you're vegetarian then eating your beans with dairy or eggs is an easy way to make sure you're getting enough. The other half of my protein mostly comes from dairy but I still think the protein from the beans is contributing. When I tried going vegan I never felt completely satisfied even when eating fake meat stuff but maybe some other people just digest plant foods better than I do and would be okay with it.

            Yeah basically all vegan protein sources have issues with low Methionine and Tryptophan, trying to fulfill those can bloat the calorie amount really quickly. Even soy and wheat gluten like

            Still pretty high but you probably get more from soy and peas.
            But if you want the most protein per weight and price you can't beat seitan. 100% protein and wheat flour is cheap as shit

            mentioned have issues with those.
            And to be fair eggs are the goat of protein sources, there is a reason why they are used as reference point for all others.
            And those fake meats are arguably pretty shitty in comparison to just using plants. Although I personally also don't like the idea of trying to imitate meat instead of doing your own thing.

              I was just curious as it'd be an easy way to get extra protein and nutrition overall on a vegan diet. But it still didn't seem to be enough. Now I generally just prefer to eat beans as the main part of a meal and having it with a glass of milk to drink. Fake meat stuff doesn't taste that good after a while but I don't seem to get sick of beans.

              I was vegetarian for like 8 years, then went vegan when I figured out that my constant heartburn and aching joints was lactose and gluten intolerance. I've been vegan for 3 years now and although I miss some ingredients (it's hard to find good vegan cheese unless you cough up a ton of cash) I never really feel unsatisfied or malnourished. That being said I do eat b12 and omega complex supplements and I eat a lot of leafy greens for stuff like iron. Not sure if my body process veggies better than others, but I never really liked meat, eggs or milk (except cheese) so I don't really miss it.

              >Not sure if my body process veggies better than others
              That's a possibility. I recently read that some people have certain genes that make them unable to convert beta carotene from plant foods into usable vitamin A as well as others. Even when I was eating lots of sweet potato I was still experiencing some symptoms of vitamin A deficiency.

                That's interesting. I know everyone's body are different but I keep learning just how much it can differ. It's good that you keep tabs on it tho. Everyone should do some blood work every once in a while just to keep tabs but it's obviously more important with any diet that eliminate certain groups of food.
