    I’ve been reading your weekly menus with great interest, partly because I’m trying to move to a more vegetarian-based diet. But I am struck by how little protein there appears to be in your diet. You all look healthy and given the level of physical activity you must have in your daily lives, whatever you’re doing seems to work for you. But I’m wondering if there are protein sources in your diet (other than the occasional mention of cheese) that perhaps aren’t getting mentioned in your weekly menus.

    Every plant has some protein, but there is a lot in grains and beans. They seem to eat plenty of protein, to me. Most people eat way too much and it does cause health problems. 😀
