Italian bioengineer Giuseppe Scionti from Spanish startup Novameat has invented the "world's first" 3D-printed meat-free steak made from vegetable proteins, which mimics the texture of beef. From a report:
Vegan ingredients such as rice, peas and seaweed, which provide the amino acids needed for a healthy diet, are turned into a food paste that is 3D-printed to form a raw, steak-like substance. Despite an abundance of meat-free products already on the market that taste similar to animal meats, Scionti found that these are limited to imitation burgers, chicken nuggets or meatballs. None of the offerings reproduce a piece of "fibrous flesh" such as steak or chicken breast. In an effort to reduce the impact of animal agriculture and to improve people's nutrition, the Milanese researcher set out to create a plant-based alternative to "fleshy" meat products.
eating plants isn't going to save us from global warming or other environmental disasters.
Much has been made of the methane emissions of livestock, but these are lower in biodiverse pasture systems that ... may reduce emissions of methane by 70%.
In the vegan equation, by contrast, the carbon cost of ploughing is rarely considered. But since the industrial revolution up to 70% of the carbon in our cultivated soils has been lost to the atmosphere.
So, unless you’re sourcing your vegan products specifically from organic, "no-dig" systems, you are actively participating in the destruction of soil biota

A big part of the nutrition of a raw food backpacker is seeds and nuts. Unsoaked seeds and nuts contain enzyme inhibitors which make them hard to digest. Seeds and nuts are best consumed after soaking 6-12 hours (depending on the size of the seed) in room temperature water. During the soaking process, enzyme inhibitors are released and enzymes are activated. These enzymes within the seeds and nuts go to work breaking down the macronutrients (e.g., proteins broken down into amino acids, fats into fatty acids, starches into sugars). This saves your body the work of digestion, allowing the saved energy to be put to work fueling the muscles on a thru-hike.
