The Protein Myth – Food is Medicine
One of the great myths is that we cannot meet our bodies need for protein of a plant based diet. The fact is that there are numerous excellent plant based sources. Many first time vegetarians tend to heavily rely on tofu and tempeh to meet these protein needs. It’s recommended to have a wide array of veggie sources of protein in addition to the soy in tofu and tempeh. Try adding beans and legumes, grains such as quinoa, nuts, seeds and some dark leafy green vegetables.
