Hi friends!  One of the most frequent questions I get asked is "How can I get more protein without eating meat?"  Now, I am not saying you need to go vegan or vegetarian.  In fact, I am a firm believer in bio-individuality (everyone is different, so our bodies need different sources of nutrition).  However if it is something that you are thinking about, or you just want to incorporate different sources of protein, today I am sharing a bit more about it.  Take a peek! seitanSeitan - 63 grams per cup

Tempeh - 30 grams per cup
