Vegan?! How do you get your protein?

 Vegan?! How do you get your protein?

“All protein is made by plants!”, Dr. Milton Mills states in the 2017 documentary ‘What the Health!?’: “Only plants have the ability to actually take nitrogen from the air, break those molecules apart, incorporate that nitrogen into amino acids, and then make protein.” -> Any protein you get from an animal is simply recycled plant protein!

5 quick facts about plant-protein:

  1. Humans need 0.8g of protein per kilogram of body weight.
  2. Protein deficiency in Europe and America is, basically, unheard of.
  3. Pretty much all plant foods have protein. As well as some of the nine essential amino acids. (Quinoa, buckwheat, soy, chia and hempseed even boost all nine amino acids.)
  4. Animal protein comes with ‘gifts’ such as saturated fats, cholesterol, natural and added hormones, and antibiotics.
  5. Plant protein comes with gifts such as antioxidants, fiber, minerals, and vitamins.
