The only thing that can’t be had naturally in a vegan diet is B12, because it comes from bacteria, which is found in animal products, true, because animals are naturally germ-y. I sprinkle nutritional yeast on a few things and that takes care of it. My teenager really likes soy cheese and Quorn and most of that stuff adds it in as a supplement so she’s good.
I’m in great health, I’ve been vegan for 14 years. I’ve never had a protein deficiency problem nor has anyone in my family. You rarely see that except in countries where people can’t get calories in them at all. We’re not sickly.
I can’t understand why it’s so “uncool” to be against animal abuse these days. I don’t know if it’s being spread around by the beef industry or what. I give a shit about animal welfare and have seen the abuses in factory farms. Sue me. Jesus. I’ve been judged since the day my kid was born that she was going to be sick and shit and she’s one of only three girls on the wrestling team at her middle school.
Which, by the way, is 58 g.
Are you people still suck in the 80s? You can get protein from just about any food. I’m 131 lbs; I need 41 grams per day. Peanut butter/jelly sandwich, 19 g. Bowl of brown rice, 21 g. Boom, done for the day. Even a damn potato or a grape has protein in it. Americans are so stuck on this protein thing. If I hear, “But where do you get your PROTEIN?” one more time I will barf my chicken fried wheat gluten steak all over your fucking shoes.
