Protein comes from meat and fish, right?
Most of us get our protein from animals or animal by-products like milk, cheese, and eggs. Is this the best form of protein we can consume? The safest?
Not by a long shot!
Did you know bovine (cow) meat was long considered poor man’s protein? And whey protein, a by-product from making cheese, was sold as pig feed, as it fattens up pigs quickly. Ironically now whey powder is sold as a sports supplement for athletes!
Not surprisingly, animal protein has been proven in innumerable studies to be linked with higher incidence of heart attack, stroke, diabetes and cancer.
Where do the animals we eat get protein? Plants, of course. Plants have protein – and lots of it.
How much protein do we really need? Ten percent is the amount of total dietary intake. And less than 1/3 of this should be from animals.
Unfortunately most of the plant-based foods we do eat are often highly processed, or loaded with dressings like ranch dressing, which is just horrible for us! Processed foods always come loaded with added fat, sugar and salt. No wonder the country is fighting obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer!
Today we highlight our plant-based Protein Plus Superfood 7-in-1 formula. If you are not familiar with this amazing formula, you are in for a delicious treat!
All Proteins are NOT Created Equal
You can source your protein from animals or plants.
The difference in these two sources is staggering.
You don’t have to investigate far to see the results of a diet high in animal-based protein and dairy.
For far too long, people have been “fed” the myth that a vegetarian or vegan cannot get sufficient protein from their plant-based foods.
WRONG! Nothing could be further from the truth!
Pretty much all plant foods have protein! We need to eat foods that supply us with the nine essential amino acids that our bodies cannot make on their own. Some plant-based foods actually contain ALL of them: quinoa, buckwheat, soy, chia and hempseed.
As long as foods like legumes, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are consumed daily, you’re getting everything you need and more!
You can get all the protein your body needs from plant-based foods – and now plant-based protein powders!
