Do we really need protein?
Yes! Of course we do, protein has a lot of important roles in our body. But do we need meat to get protein? Definitely
not. There is plenty of protein in plant sources. You don’t have to be a chemist to get the right combination of amino acids either, even the essential ones can be found in almost any mixture of natural foods. The problem comes in
when someone who is vegetarian consumes a diet of mainly bread, pasta and other processed foods. These don’t contain much protein, and definitely don’t have a
good balance of amino acids. Read about being a good vegetarian HERE
