Are You Getting Enough Protein?

What you should know about proteins?

Meatless meals are built around vegetables, beans and grains instead of meat, which tends to be more expensive and plant-based diets may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. There probably isn't a vegetarian on the planet who hasn't been asked "Are you getting enough protein?"


If you take a trip back to your old science class, you might remember that protein is made up of smaller components called amino acids, 12 of which are manufactured by the human body. Another nine, called essential amino acids, must be obtained from food.   What is more important is that consumption of protein is very important for the health, but we also don’t need every essential amino acid in every bite of food in every meal they eat; we only need a sufficient amount of each amino acid every day. There are so many protein-packed vegetarian options!
