34. The whole "protein" thing is a myth

based on not being educated in the matter. Yes, it used to be hard for vegetarians or vegans to get proper protein, like 20-30 years ago, but it isn't the case anymore. I'd guess that vegan's & some vegetarians tend to be more educated about what goes in their bodies, mostly because of researching what is and isn't vegan, finding those pesky hidden ingredients like fish scales in margarine, orange juice or beer for example.

Below are some meatless options I eat often (and where I get some of my protein).

12g protein


18g protein


16g protein


You can get protein from nuts & seeds, cheeses if you're vegetarian, beans & legumes, fruits & vegetables, etc.

Also, if there's any real concern about a vegan diet, it's about getting enough B-12.

I hate to preach about diet or how anyone should eat but seeing posts that are most misinformed, I find myself needing to speak up.
