The Big Protein Question when your Vegan

Image

I found this lovely post on Young and Raw about getting enough protein on a Vegan diet.

I love this information

Ground beef is is around 24% protein, chicken breast is roughly 35% protein and pork is somewhere around 27% (depends on the cut and diet of the animal). The rest of the percentages in these foods is by and large saturated fat, which has been well established to be hazardous to your health when it comes from animal sources.
VS.
Broccoli is 45% protein, Spirulina is 68% protein, Spinach is 30% protein. The rest of the percentages in these foods is vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that fight dis-ease, cancers and promote longevity.

Please check out the website its a great source of information.

We need to raise awareness! Too many people do not understand that vegetables are a source of protein and carbohydrates.
