Your body needs protein to maintain muscle, bones, blood, and the overall health of internal organs. And while the obvious protein choices for so many are cheese, steak, eggs, these and other animal products generally lack fiber and are acidifying to the body. This leaches calcium from your bones and decreases oxygen levels in the blood.
Plant-based foods, on the other hand, are nearly free from cholesterol and tend to be high in fiber.
Maybe you’re jumping on the vegan bandwagon, maybe you’re trying to lighten your carbon footprint, or maybe you’re like us (a family that will never give up bacon and a good grilled burger) and trying to scale back on over-processed junk…
Whatever your reason, it’s nice to know that there are options!
