I was under the impression that beans and lentils do not provide a sufficient source of bioavailable essential amino acids, and are therefore not a recommended alternative to many meats which do provide those essential amino acids? Do you have a source saying they are a sufficient alternative? My google-fu is pathetic and I can't find anything :(

Ok, I get the concept now. I personally have special needs so this might be a bit harder (I have some interesting sensory quirks with my digestive system among other things), but I'll see if I can find myself a diet that at the very minimum highly reduces my meat intake. Even if I end up unable to eliminate my meat intake, minimizing my footprint has to count for something I'd think.
