That would make human blood a superfood. But from what I've read, blood, when eaten and digested, is actually not very nutritious - very poor in comparison to having it flow through your veins.
There are important changes in the digestive system that happen to the things we eat, which is why it is not possible to predict that something is nutritious simply because it resembles the make-up of our body.

Depends on what one wishes to do with one's energy.
Except for coconut oil, which vegetarian product has saturated fat? What about B12?
From what I've read, B12 is normally stored in the body and doesn't get used up easily. See Wiki article on it.
What if someone needs to be on high protein, low-carb diet?
Obviously, in the field of nutrition, there are many differing opinions on what is good and what isn't. I think the real issue here is whom to trust, whom to rely on, and for what purpose.
There is the ideal of establishing bodily health per se - regardless of one's goals in life, regardless of what one wants to do in life.
I think this ideal is misleading.
One's ideas of "health" will necessarily have to do with what one sees as the meaning or purpose of life.
