Recipes for Healthy Living

One of the biggest and most common questions you will hear if you decide to become a vegan or vegetarian is “Where do you get your protein?” It seems like it is the only cause for concern by any carnivore, and it usually comes from a place trying to discredit your ability to do so. I am surprised how many people could actually care about my protein intake, vegan or not. I can’t imagine someone asking me how I got my protein if I was on any other type of diet. Perhaps I am just calloused to the question, and maybe their intentions are good, but I can assure you, as someone partaking in a plant based diet, I am getting my protein just fine, and in heaps, from the various plant sources that are available. Certainly I am taking more care of my protein intake than the one chicken breast they are eating a day.
