Grass fed beef jerky and coconut flakes

Answered on August 19, 2014

I have been drinking lots of kale smoothies with kale, cucumber, celery and avocado. I would think that these smoothies are largely fulfilling my need for vitamins and minerals.

As for macronutrients, I was wondering how grass fed beef jerky and coconut flakes would do together? I definitely don't plan on only eating these two things but I'd like to know what macronutrients these two foods might lack because I was considering buying them for an on-the-go snack.

Grass fed beef jerky would provide a complete protein as well as both saturated and mono/poly unsaturated fats with a pretty good omega 3/6 ratio. All that's left would be carbs (although not essential), which the coconut flakes would provide along with a further dose of saturated fats.

One potential problem is that there should probably be an additional source of omega 3 fatty acids to make up for the not perfect omega 3/6 ratio of the grass fed beef jerky. The only other potential problem that I can think of is the possible need for additional carbs if I happen to be exercising or using a lot of energy. The coconut flakes would barely have any carbs so I was thinking about buying dried berries as well for the optional carb boost.

Thanks! I looked up the ingredients for my kale smoothies to confirm that they do contain every micronutrient and, like you said, I always add coconut oil for the fat-soluble vitamins. I agree with you that pure sugar is "bleh" which is why I'm worried about buying dried berries. They seem to be pretty close to pure sugar. But hopefully I can refrain from overeating them by drinking lots of water and eating some of the grass fed beef jerky immediately before. I don't really know of a better source of carbs that could sit in my backpack all day without going bad.

There are tons of ex vegans, why do you think that is? Because they got too healthy on raw food vegan and couldn't take it anymore? NO. Because either their health problems didn't go away or they developed new ones. Besides, fcs, you don't even mention any scientific studies, you're just trolling with ignorant opinions. I could write a bot in python hat was capable of adding more to the discussion than you. Plz, when you troll at least give more than your opinion, k? Thanks.

My sis always had perfect teeth no cavities. After 6 years on raw vegan, Boom, 8 cavities. Besides, duriander is a strong leader in the movement and he's a batshit crazy recovering meth addict who has an article explaining why HIIT is unhealthy. It's as if he looks at everything science, says f**k that and then just gives his opinion. I've learned more from Barney than I have from the leading raw food vegan dimwits and that's probably because they don't get the nutrients required for proper brain function. Did you just start this 6 months ago or something? Lmao.

I would not assume that your kale smoothies are fulfilling your vitamins and minerals, I'd look up the nutrition data on each and find out for sure. Also, lots of raw kale constantly might not be the healthiest thing, you're going to absorb more from it by cooking it in a fat. Coconut oil or butter would be fine, base it on whichever tastes better to you.

Coconut flakes have VERY little carbs unless you're getting the sweetened ones in which case the carbs are pure sugar, bleh. Tubers are gonna be better than white sugar, think sweet potatoes/potatoes. If you find you need more o3s then just include any seafood. Seafood is going to hook you up with iodine and selenium so is a good idea to include anyways.

Other than that, use the principle of eating whole foods and follow your instincts.
