VZ 231: Do I Need to Add a Protein Powder to My Diet?


Most of us who are vegetarian or vegan have, at some point, been asked the question, “But where do you get your protein?”

In this episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast, we talk about protein–how much we really need and some great non-animal protein sources. If you do want to use a supplement, we give you some ideas of what to look for.

Question: In one of the last episodes we did, we talked about things we wished we would have known when we first became vegetarians. One of ours was knowing how to answer the question, “Where do you get your protein.” We weren’t very confident answering this question. What we would like to know is, how do you answer this question?
