I went over a week with no animal protein, but today broke down and spent 21 pesos on cheese. just had a quesadilla, it was delicious, and it satisfied my hunger on a deeper level than do beans and rice.

of course, I'll be unlikely to find a source for cheese in a survival situation, but I'll have other options, such as pigeons or fish, and of course cats and dogs.

I've been thinking about learning how to knap flint. tried an arrowhead on the beach the other day, but didn't even finish roughing it out before I broke off too much of it. maybe I should start easy, with a "hand axe" or something similar.

I don't think these reddish rocks are flint, but they fracture conchoidally, and ought to be close enough to serve the function.
