I was just reading the reader mail and I got confused by the guy who wrote in asking about beans. Due to the fact I have a lower paying job and live in a city with a higher standard of living and median income level I’ve been forced to become frugal and damn near inventive with my means of getting sufficient protein. That usually means a lot of eggs, milk, tuna, ground turkey, and when I can…chicken breasts and beef. But I’ve also increased my bean consumption because they a) are high in fiber and b) are a cheap good source of protein (when combined with brown rice which I do).
Yeah this sounds pretty vegetarian and trust me I don’t like it but thats a different rant for a different post.
I just was wondering what people eat to get their protein when funds are limited. I know Berardi has written on how beans are good for carbs more than protein and I’m googling that now. Its just that response to that reader really threw me. Oh and I read the article he was referring to too.
