I am always experimenting with different diets and ways of eating…..I am my own experiment!!
As I research and learn new things about foods I will add or take away food groups or supplements….always trying to be on top of the latest information and the healthiest way to eat. However, I do believe that each person is unique and what works for me might not work for you and vice versa. I also believe that life is a journey and for me it is constantly changing including my diet!
I became a vegetarian almost 5 years ago and have even taken up vegan and raw vegan for periods of time….people are always asking me questions about how I eat and how I feed my family and it is a hard question to answer because it’s not a one answer kind of question….its an afternoon of explanations!!! LOL
I do however always get the infamous question which I am sure some of you may also get….
“Where do you get your protein??”
did you know that plants (mostly greens) are very high in protein and that fruits also contain protein??
I usually never worry if I am getting enough…..but lately I have decided to increase my protein to a very high level in hopes of building some muscles!! LOL
Instead of using meat as a protein source I use protein powders….although there are many to choose from I am rather picky!!! Most of the protein powders available are filled with JUNK and contain things like whey and soy….which I stay away from!!!
So, I was ecstatic when I had the opportunity to try SPROUT LIVING’S line of protein powders!!!
