Re: [pfaf] Re: Joining post: UK vegan diet?
- Dear Graham,
> Home grown sources of healthy vegan dietAh! _That_ is what I was looking for! The main omission
that I can see on the nutrient list is omega oils (which I'm told
are important in preventing certain kinds of severe depression)
but I have learned today that pumpkin seeds are a good source.
I believe that the omega oils are only heat stable to 120 C, which
I think means that seeds in bread will be denatured in the crust
but protected in the middle of the loaf?
Oh, and thank you for reprinting "Well fed - not an
animal dead" :-)
Hi Amanda, I wish you well with the diet. I have been turning my garden into a forest garden for many years now, see
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/veronicathecow/ for details, photos and some videos.
You might be able to see some chick peas growing under the sunflowers. I got a crop from them the one other year that I tried (not huge, but useable) and the same with lentils. Garlics grow like grass here, and I have had a good crop of Almonds most years. The Walnut tree(7 years old) produced three immature nuts last year and in total I got about 475lb of fruit and veg from about 1/20th of an acre (Ther toal land includes a house, front lawn, large sand pit etc and is about 1/10th of an acre).
I am just moving to Wales and trying to do the same with 2 acres of wet pastureland. Fingers crossed.
I've just re-joined this emailing list. I'm based in the UK,
and currently interested in finding out as much as possible about
'British' vegan food: making my diet more sustainable by concentrating
on UK produced vegan food, not relying upon imported products e.g.
soy, rice, many pulses...
Has anyone written a "Diet for a Small Island" which looks at
the nutritional balance of possible British home-grown vegan diet as
is possible already (not relying upon the fascinating but unusual and
hard-to-get foods in the PFAF database :-) ?
