“Where do you get your protein from?”

Is one of THE most asked questions you will ever receive if you eat a plant based diet.

Protein is actually found in nearly every plant food so as long as you’re eating a varied plant diet then you are eating more than enough.

  • Kidney disease

  • High blood pressure,
  • Cancer
