Vegan Protein Boosts
Vegan Protein Boosts for Healthy Living
The standard American diet (and the corporations who market it as the norm) has brainwashed society into believing they need vast amounts of protein and meals that have a meat, a grain, and then maybe some vegetables on the side. While there’s nothing wrong with eating protein, it’s important to recognize what is actually needed nutritionally and what has been marketed to you as necessary. You can get a ton of vegan protein boosts plant-based diet, especially in snacks and small meals, without having to worry about having a large protein (Sorry no fooling me, there is no meat on my plate!). You can also eat foods that contain smaller amounts of protein at each meal that the body can use efficiently to form proteins on its own, cutting out carbs and eating a large amount of animal products is not only “unhealthy” but completely detrimental to ones health. The human body can only use so much protein, unlike what mainstream media likes to spread around about it. In fact diabetes and kidney issues are linked to a diet high in animal protein.
