Getting Enough Protein as a Vegetarian or Vegan (VZ 7)

“If  you don’t eat animal products, how on earth are you getting enough protein in your diet?”


This is one of the most commonly asked questions regarding living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.  Meat, eggs and dairy products provide the majority of protein for omnivores.  In Episode 007, we explore this issue, focusing on a variety of ways that vegetarians and vegans can ensure adequate protein intake.



We also discuss a San Antonio Express-News article for which Larissa was interviewed and Vickie’s upcoming speaking engagement at the San Antonio Vegetarian Society.
