How do you respond to someone who asks "but where do you get all of the essential amino acids?" I know that protein is practically in every food but amino acids? Quinoa is the only one I know and I want to be able to list so many foods it makes their head spin! Thank you and I love your blog!
A bad habit many people fall into is eating the same foods over and over. In any diet, it is important to vary your food intake to ensure a wide variety of nutrients. With a vegan diet, this becomes even more important. Varying the diet ensures that you consume all the necessary amino acids, giving the body much-needed amino fuel to synthesize the proteins it needs to function.
Every day, be sure you eat from each of the following categories:
These are all excellent sources of protein. Some, such as soy, provide proteins of equal quality to those provided by meats. Proteins synthesized by the body from essential amino acids available in this variety of foods are also of high quality—perhaps even better than meat proteins.
It’s not necessary to combine plant proteins in each individual meal, but be sure to get a good variety of plant-based proteins throughout the day, and you’ll be assured of sufficient protein to keep your body happy.
Does anyone have any advice on where to get good vegan food in Kansas? I'm ready to start getting rid of the bad things in my diet but I haven't seen any vegan stores around here *we already have a ton of fruits and veggies so that's covered as well as almond milk* it's just the meat substitute and non dairy products I'm having issues finding any help would be appreciated!
I'll tell you something, wasps terrify me, I could of never done what you did. Wasps seem to like stinging me for no reason, like I can just be getting on with my life and they'll sting me.
Awww I do understand. Wasps can be intentionally very aggressive at times. I just couldn’t leave the helpless soul alone but I didn’t touch him/her anyway.
