I follow a vegan diet. Essentially, this means I eat mostly plants. It seems every day I am bombarded with questions about my diet from seemingly concerned family members, friends, and even strangers. One question I get asked all the time is, “…where do you get your protein?”
Conventional wisdom would like to suggest that ‘plants’ and ‘protein’ simply don’t belong in the same sentence. I’m here to slay the meat = protein myth and tell you that you can ‘meet’ your protein needs from healthy plant-based sources.
