Myth 1⠀
Plant based living will not give you enough Protein in your diet.⠀
This is simply false. While meat and things like eggs and milk are major sources of protein, they are not the only ones. Many of our beloved vegetables have protein, like spinach. One cup of uncooked spinach has around 7 grams of protein. Nut butter has 8 grams of protein per two tablespoons, quinoa has around 9 grams of protein per cup cooked, and one cup of cooked lentils packs a whopping 18 grams of protein! Many research studies have shown, in fact, that both vegans and traditional eaters are usually getting too much protein in their diets.
