    Just plant based. The protein part doesn’t matter

      There are loads of other benefits that come along with eating plants, but regarding protein source:

      “Conclusions Higher intake of total protein was associated with a lower risk of all cause mortality, and intake of plant protein was associated with a lower risk of all cause and cardiovascular disease mortality. Replacement of foods high in animal protein with plant protein sources could be associated with longevity.SOURCE

      “Conclusions and relevance: High animal protein intake was positively associated with cardiovascular mortality and high plant protein intake was inversely associated with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality, especially among individuals with at least 1 lifestyle risk factor. Substitution of plant protein for animal protein, especially that from processed red meat, was associated with lower mortality, suggesting the importance of protein source.SOURCE

        My point is that there’s no shortage of protein available in plants.

        You can get lots of proteins from plants such as:

        Tofu and Tempeh, Lentils, Chickpeas, Quinoa, Nuts and Seeds (such as almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds), Edamame, Spirulina, Seitan, Black Beans, Peanut Butter.

          Yes, but you only need to worry about it if you’re a body builder. You can meet your daily minimum needs stupid easy if you just eat a variety of food without any of the items you listed.

          Its important to dispell the myth.

          Nuts are not high protein. I don’t know where this idea comes from. There’s protein in nuts, but compared to the amount of calories per gram it’s really not that high. Unless you want to gain weight nuts shouldn’t be your main source of proteins.

          Anyway my point is just that the protein part is important because that’s the part that people need to change their diet for. Everything else people wouldn’t really have any issues going vegan.
