You said anything, I'm new to SC, that is my excuse for not being more informed about the books that have so far been recommended.*That is also my caveat for repeating what you all may have already*known for years. Regardless I'd rather repeat than miss.....Here is one of my favs.
The Backpackers Field Manual by Rick Curtis
Although it was written from an environmental stand point and specifically for backpacking, *it has good lessons on how to not leave "any trace of your passing". *Which alone could be somewhat handy.*
This book is not specific about your area nor is specific about plant life.*It was written for camping and then going back home.*But by reading through the lines of what doesn't apply, it will give you some wonderful info. * * * * * **
Here are two*instances.....
1) He discusses simple ways to remember the "combination of foods" that give you complete proteins: * *
*How the Nutritional "N" * Works.
* * * * * * * * * * * Don't * * * * get * * * * *love * * * * * * *sick. * * * *(easy to remember)
* * * * * * * * * *(Dairy). * (Grains). * (legumes). (Seeds)
Any of these that are next to each other if eaten in the same day(that's new info per CDC) gives you all of the necessary and/or complete proteins or in other words, the same proteins as meat for when it is not available. This is critical to developing minds, the elderly And the person who needs to be on their best game physically. *
Did you know that peanuts and almonds are not nuts?*A peanut is a legume and an almond is a seed.*
2) He also mentions that heat (therefore hot water) deactivates the sterilization chemical in chlorine bleach. * *
(Now this one was new to me)*I'd have thought by my advanced age I'd have come across that at some point in my life!
I'm trying to digest the LDS this weekend, it is such an incredible resource*
Thank you SC for making it available!
