Tip of the Month
Turkey time! One of our three macronutrients that gets a lot of attention for plant-based eaters is protein. Protein needs vary, mostly based on weight, age, and activity status. Plant sources of proteins can easily take the place of meat products, with careful attention. Meat offers already made complete proteins, with all the essential amino acids. Plant-based sources can often be incomplete proteins. Create complete plant-based proteins by pairing rice with beans, or hummus with whole grain bread.
