#10 Worrying About Protein

Meat people love worrying about protein.

Many meat people tend to ignore the protein building blocks (amino acids) in plant based foods and think protein is only available in animal based foods (meat).

Many meat people like asking nonmeat people, "Where do you get your protein?" When nonmeat people reply that getting enough protein is rarely a problem for anyone who eats a variety of plant based foods and in fact, most Americans eat too much protein, the meat people are often confused or in disbelief.

The millions of vegetarians and vegans throughout the world and throughout history prove proteins are easily available in nonmeat diets. In fact, most nonmeat people are healthier and get more nutrients than most meat people.

But meat people would rather get their protein (and many other nutrients) second-hand, that is, filtered through the flesh of an animal.
