These are the questions I get asked most often about my food choices. I think most people are just curious, some concerned, and others looking for a little intellectual food rumble. No worries though, I confident and happy with how I eat—feels great to be a veghead!
But where do you get your protein?
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this question I’d be rollin’ in it. This is a perfect example of how the FDA’s relationship with the meat industry has effected the way we think about meat. Most North Americans consume way more protein than necessary, which I would argue is way harder on our bodies and the environment than consuming a little less than recommended. Not that I eat less than I need—I eat oodles of protein rich foods.
