We don't need much protein at all, actually. We certainly need some, b
Hempseed contains all the essential amino acids and fatty acids, and is considered to be a complete food. The seed or achene contains 26-31% crude protein, 65% of which is globular edestin and albumin that is about 84% digestible. Lysine (the limiting protein in edestin) and other components are destroyed by the heat generated when hempseed is pressed for its oil. Addition of 1% lysine hydrochloride will restore the nutritional balance of heat-treated edestin. The meal also contains about 6% carbohydrates, 5-10% fat, 12% crude fiber, 10% moisture, and 7% ash. (100, 101)
T.B. Osborne studied hemp edestin and reported on its isolation and purification in 1892. Until the passage of the infamous Marihuana Tax Act in 1937, edestin was regarded as a standard example of the seed globulins (the third most abundant protein after collagen and albumin). They are vital to the maintenance of a healthy immune system. (102, 103)
The globulin edestin in hempseed closely resembles that found in human blood plasma, and it is easily digested, absorbed, and utilized. Hemp edestin is so completely compatible with the human digestive system, that the Czechoslovakian Tubercular Nutrition Study (1955) found hempseed to be the only food that can successfully treat the consumptive disease tuberculosis, in which the nutritive processes are impaired.

Seriously, if you absolutely need meat, raise rabbits. Just need a hutch, a male and female, and they reproduce like crazy. You can even move the hutch indoors at night if you don't want people stealing them. Easier to do than lugging a herd of cows, goats or sheep around. And they are quiet. People hear your chickens making a racket and they might just decide to poach.

You guys should look into the raw food movement. It is exactly what it sounds like; surviving on and enjoying raw foods, fruits, veg and sprouted grains.
