This week we are all about proteins.
As you might know by now, the concerns about protein intake are a bit dated and scientists have now discovered that people thrive best with a plant-based protein intake between 5% and 20% of their total calories. We like to support our beliefs with scientific datas, so please take 5 minutes to watch this video by Dr. Michael Greger, The Great Protein Fiasco.
If you are currently consuming a high animal-based protein diet, please also check this video: Vegan Protein Status to learn how the inflammation caused by meat and dairy (whey and casein) are actually disrupting your protein absorption.
If you want to have more plant-based protein in your diet, see below an easy and inexpensive powder you can make at home from seeds.
