Hello beautiful souls, I came across this article today and thought it would be a great read for vegans/vegetarians, people who are looking to become vegan/vegetarian, and even people who may be skeptical about not eating meat and maintaining the body’s so called need for protein. It explains in full how eating plant-based foods that are “complete proteins” provide the 9 essential amino acids needed for building healthy protein within the body. Not only does it explain it simply for anyone to understand, it also provides examples of top high and “complete protein” plant foods. Reader Beware – don’t read on an empty stomach! lol Enjoy!

“The continuing debate over how much protein the average person needs* has done little to change our hunger for it. And who can blame us? Protein is one of the basic building blocks of life.
When most people think about protein, images of cheese, eggs and a leg of lamb pop into their head. Did you know though that every – yes,every – whole food contains protein? From your morning banana to your evening salad, finding plants packed with protein is easy to do. And not only is it easy to do, it’s easy for your body to use.
Plant-based foods are free from cholesterol, tend to be high in fiber, and are often alkalizing to the body. All animal products, on the other hand, are devoid of fiber, and are acidifying to the body, which causes calcium to be leached from your bones, as well as decreasing oxygen levels in the blood, and negatively impacting the digestive/lymphatic system.”
Lots of Love and Vibrant Health!
