Vegan and Vegetarian Protein Sources





There is a lot of debate today about the meat industry and its effect on the environment. Animal farming requires a lot of valuable resources and the emissions produced from such can be really detrimental to our planet. Whatever your thoughts may be on the matter, its important to know that we have so many other delicious options to source our protein from! Now, I know, eating meat- specifically a sizzling steak or a juicy hamburger- isn’t all about getting in that extra protein. Food is meant to be enjoyed! But, it’s important to keep in mind our own personal contributions to what’s going on on our planet and do our part to cut back on things that have the capacity to be detrimental to it wherever we can.
