“Where do you get your protein?" That’s the question you hear when you tell well-meaning friends and family that you’ve stopped eating meat. Of course, there are an abundance of vegetarian protein sources available, if you know where to look.
In this book, Paula Smythe answers the question by first helping you figure out how much protein you actually need.
Other questions answered include:
What plant-based sources contain the most protein?
What is a 'complete protein' and why does it matter?
Can I eat too much protein? And how much is too much?
Do I need more protein if I work out?
Once you know your protein goals, lots of yummy recipes follow to help you reach them.

-Tempeh 'Beef' Stew
-Quinoa Fried Rice
-Blueberry Almond Protein Pancakes
