Beans Versus Beef

beans versus beef

Age, education and intelligence do not matter. Mention a trigger word for something outside of the most banal part of the mainstream and you will find at least one adult who will revert to some childlike state to put on a “skit”. Mention that you “take karate” and this person will start making cat noises and parrying with their hands. Mention you take yoga and that person will put their hands together and say “namaste”. Mention legumes and they will repeat some nursery rhyme from childhood.

If you prefer to be an intelligent person and examine the chart above for alternatives to some of the major problems in our country ( heart disease and cancer are the top killers of Americans) you might also want to check out this link which shows you how to prepare legumes properly such that they will not cause discomfort. Help ward off heart disease, reduce your risk of cancer, reduce global warming, reduce other types of pollution, reduce cruelty to animals, lose weight, save money and eat tasty food. Dumb nursery rhymes anyone ? 🙂

  1. Thanks. There is one in every crowd. They just revert to being a 12 year old for some reason I can’t fathom. It never occurs to them that acting like that is not only not appreciated, but that it makes them look foolish. It also never occurs to them that they are not original either.

  2. I find it hard to take this too seriously.

    You cannot declare steak to contain ‘no fiber’ when it patently does.

    Beef also contains more mono-unsaturated fat than saturated fat.

    It can contain steroids and antibiotics, but not all cattle is treated this way you know, so a blanket statement to that effect is disingenuous.

  3. Neil;

    Here is the USDA nutrition database listing for grass fed steak, about as healthy as it is possible for beef to get. The USDA reports steak as having zero fiber as well as having about equal amounts of saturated and monosaturated fat. A 4oz grass fed steak has 2.2g of saturated fat and 2.1g of monosaturated fat, according to the USDA.

  4. I stand corrected, so apologies. It feels fibrous, but I am misinformed.
    But you cannot say that most of the fat in beef is saturated when it is only about 50%.

    Of course, the key problem is whether saturated fat is bad for you as you imply. The Weston A Price foundation web site can provide much detail on this matter.

  5. Neil,

    Aside from your mistake about beef having fiber, you also claimed that beef had more monotsaturated fat than saturated fat. The USDA link I posted was also meant to show you that claim was not true either. There are about equal amounts of each according to the USDA. This is true for other types of beef, which you can also look up at the USDA link.

    You can use the USDA link to easily look up the nutritional content of many, many, other types of food. That could be useful to you as someone just starting to learn the basics of human nutrition.
