Hopniss: North America's best wild tuber?
Also Known as Indian Potato or Groundnut (Apios americana).
An article by Sam Thayer.
"How thoughtful of the Creator to have designed such a plant as this:
that on the banks of the rivers and lakes where for millennia the
Earth-People have harvested their wild rice, a tuber grows in profusion
which, combined with that grain, provides all the protein the body needs."
Is this true? rice and groundnuts (and/or other plants in the vegetable
kingdom) provide one with all the protein the body needs? no B12 tablets
or ovo/lacto/pesco/red/white meat required.
I have heard not, i.e. possibility of B12 deficiency from a pure vegan
diet, but I would like to hear differently.
