View Full Version : essential amino acids?
10-10-2005, 08:46 PM
I am sure this question has been asked numerous times before on this site, but one more shouldn't hurt. Can someone please tell me what raw foods I need to get all of my essential amino acids? I like every kind of raw food and have no allergies. Thanks a million!

Dark green leafy veggies pretty much. Check out the "need to know more about raw" thread on the first page, and you will see "protein" there, that should answer your question and then some. :o)
Sprouted seeds also provide a fair amount of amino acids.

Just eat a wide variety of raw and living foods -- fresh, ripe, raw vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts (and sprouted grains, if you choose), and you're covered. Just make sure you're eating plenty of greens - whichever ones your body/taste buds like. You needn't fret about this. If you look at Alissa's posting on protein, you'll get much more detailed information.

Hemp seeds and hemp protein powder contain GREAT raw protein and ALL of the essential amino acids. Try some in a smoothie!! Manitoba Harvest is a good brand and can be bought online.
