You Eat In Order To Keep Yourself Alive

The work you do, the exercise you take, the thoughts you think, each breath you - draw all these use up a certain proportion of your body each day. If you want to live and keep well, this used-up portion must be replaced, and this is done through the food you eat. Part of your food furnishes you with new blood; part of it goes to make bone; part of it builds up new tissue or flesh, etc.

Meat has always been considered the best tissue or flesh building food, and for this reason people have always eaten it a great deal. Most of our meat has come from the Western states, but the tremendously large ranches of twenty years ago are gradually being cut up into small farms, and cattle are not being raised in such large numbers any more. This is one reason why meat costs so much. Another reason is the great demand there is for it on the part of our people, who do not know that there are other foods that will supply the needs of the body in just the same way that meat does, and which do not cost as much as meat. For instance, we can use fish in place of meat much more than we do.

Other foods that can take the place of meat are eggs, milk, creamed soups, macaroni, cheese, cereals, nuts, bananas, peas, beans and lentils. Eggs contain all the elements, in the right proportion, necessary for the support of the body. They are rich in the same flesh-building element as the lean of meat, and, therefore, make an excellent substitute for meat. They should be eaten with foods that are rich in starch, such as bread and potatoes. If so eaten, they will take care of your body just as completely as meat would.

Milk contains heat-giving, strength-giving and tissue-building properties. Creamed soups and purees made with milk and the pulp of vegetables can take the place of meat.

Macaroni, spaghetti and noodles contain so much starch and flesh-building material that they are equal to meat as a food if combined with cheese. The fat that they lack is supplied by the cheese, and, when so combined, they make a perfect food.

Cheese contains in a condensed form the same flesh-building material as meat, and can be used in place of it. If combined with macaroni, rice, etc., it will supply all the needs of the body.
