Where do I get my protein on a plant-based diet?

Registered dietitians Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina join agrologist Cory Davis for a deep dive into the politics and fallacies surrounding plant-based protein. Together, they present the science and studies that validate why protein derived from plants is not only comparable to protein from animal products but is also often superior to it Readers are given a clear understanding of the role of macronutrients and micronutrients, and how the amino acids found in protein promote healthy growth. They learn how to determine their recommended daily allowance (RDA) for protein. The authors target specific age groups, as well as athletes and pregnant women, and offer recommendations for how to obtain all the vital protein and nutrients their bodies require. From a lower carbon footprint to plant compounds that help reduce the risk of chronic diseases, the case for eating more plant protein is strong. Pantry suggestions, cooking tips, quizzes and thirty recipes make it easy to put this essential information into practice.
