Hello seeker242,

Thank you for your post. The problem is that one of the highest protein food still has too much others (carbs/fats). For example, I've calculated that I can take about 1500calories from cashews per meal to eat ~48g of protein. I am drinking it right now. That is my breakfast.

As for shakes. Some cheap whey (2lb and 5lb) jars are cheaper for protein than most food, (except for red kidney beans). As much as I like red kidney beans, it would be tough to eat them every day. It is easy to find cheap whey, but I haven't seen vegetarian protein jars being sold in as many places.

Is there any point to this thread? It seems like the same people or similar people talking past each other( over and over again). If you take the time to post a quality post it will only be visible for a few days before it gets lost in a heap of more than 2000 posts.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Jhana4,

If you don't see any point in a thread - don't enter the discussion,
