Jack Sprat and his Wife
You probably know that “Jack Sprat would eat no fat and his wife would eat no lean”.
But, what did they eat? It is not a problem for Jack to not eat the fat because he still ate lean meat. He was still getting protein. His wife, however, did not eat even lean meat. She was missing protein from her diet. Jack has the solution. He explains to his wife that if she will eat nuts or beans, she will still get the protein she needs to have a balanced diet.
