PF---- now you're talking!--amino acid supplementation (combining essential amino acids that your body doesn't make) to make a complete protein with no meat! I had to write a paper on that in biochemistry a long time ago.
It became more 'popular' when the Hippie culture espoused vegetarianism and some actually knew how and why to still get a healthy diet with no meat.
And I don't mean buying the pills to do it!
BUT----- the poorer Mexicans knew this long long before! A meatless taco, with beans, cheese and corn tortillas gave as complete a protein as a steak did.
More later, for those that are waiting for my Timeless Prose. (ZZzzzzzzz)
