When I want quick energy I eat things like oranges, mixed nuts, toast, corn chips with salsa and guacamole dip, trail mix, yogurtwith mixed fruit, egg rolls and fried rice.
Really, I think you guys are just making any excuse you can think of to continue your self indulgence. There is a reason obesity is so rampant. People want what they want, in whatever amounts they can get it.
It takes an evolution of social and personal consciousness to see the larger picture and make choices that truly benefit the individual, society, and the world as a whole.
The choices being made on a global scale are not truly benefiting the individual, society, or the world as a whole. So it is not a jump in logic to ask people to accept that what is the norm is quite possibly not the best way of doing things.

Fruit isn't high in protein. Fruit doesn't have leather, or bones that have been used for tools. Not all places can grow fruit. Why wouldn't a farmer grow fruit, and have animals for meat? Variety is good for diet.
